Wallowing in Wallander

Because it’s breathtaking, beautifully written, gorgeously shot. And the characters are so sympathetic. Loving this series.

Wallander: A thousand thumbs up.

The Past Month on TV #21

Another busy, busy month — I should’ve split it into fortnights again.

Anyway, read on for reviews of Top of the Lake: China Girl, the latest instalments of Game of Thrones and Twin Peaks, ‘old’ shows like Line of Duty series 3 (from all the way back in 2016) and Peaky Blinders series 2 (from even longer ago: 2014), and even more bits & bobs too. 2,023 more words

Masterpiece

The Past Fortnight on TV #20

Like some kind of Walder Frey impersonator, I’m having two feasts in a fortnight — two feasts of TV reviews, that is!
