Yes. Mass catering with mobile kitchens is pretty standard, so there was no need for the artificial tension of having the chefs and judges building it on the day. Nor was this the first time when...

Shy perhaps, and maybe a little starstruck in her exchange with the Prime Minister, where she just repeated his words back to him.

PM: It's a long way from the Plough; slightly different cooking...

Sorry for her but she did seem a bit out of her depth. In the Scottish heat, she seemed to fluke a win over Stephen, whose cooking was more accomplished.

She may also have been perhaps a tad...

I didn't think it was far-fetched but rather hackneyed, and that as soon as the subject was introduced, you could guess the rest. A more common outcome might be the child being raised by its...

You could try Youtube for the final itself but maybe not the rest of the week. It is a shame it is off iplayer -- it is not as if there are DVD sales to protect. Spain was a fun episode.

I want to like it but for me it is neither fish nor foul. Is it film noir, medical drama, crime thriller, period drama or just a high class soap? It seems to be trying to be all those things. The...
