And they'd actually attended to historical accuracy where facts are known.

At long last, with Wolf Hall, an historical drama I can watch without wanting to throw things at the screen. If this one...

I don't think there have been any 'poor' singers on this show, if you've ever listened to any really 'poor' singers you'd know that. However, they do almost all sound very similar in style to every...

I was wondering if people like me are included in the viewer voting figures. Presumably my 'watching' of the iPlayer stream will count as 1, even though I've only spent about 25 mins total in the...

As I went through last night's programme in roughly 10 minutes flat, I suppose I've lost interest in it. Maybe it's because I'd just got back from an absolutely riveting performance of Orfeo at The...

Why didn't they turn for Matt Eaves? He was amazing.

I guess this is why I'm flicking through it, not such a great show, most of those singers were very average.

Sigh.

And the judges comments...

Yes, I'm just watching it all now.

How did I manage to have never heard of Adam Lambert before this morning?

Well I guess I have, but after Paul Rodgers, I didn't bother looking at Queen + , how...

I just watched this today, this morning, expecting another Paul Rodgers mess (I disliked his inclusion with the band, he was just SO wrong) and being prepared to switch it back off.

Wow! Just...

I haven't posted much this year, been lurking though.

Thanks to abigailsmum, and everyone who has provided spoilers, I've been very grateful for them.

No, the music didn't fit at all, it was dreadful.

This AT is right up there with the most bizarre of music choices we've ever had on Strictly. Awful. Poor Jake didn't stand a chance, even if he'd...

I thought he sounded very worn out. That was epically bad - like he was in the middle of a very bad cold, and had taken a slight overdose of Night Nurse.

He even missed the start of lines of the...

Neutral.

That's the word, neutral.

The show lacked sparkle or interest outside the dancing, and Tess was trying way too hard to the point where she annoyed me more than Bruce could ever have done.

I agree, the two shows have been just flat, no sparkle at all. I'm afraid Tess is trying too hard, all that forced bonhomie really isn't coming over very well, to me anyway.

I wouldn't expect the viewing figures to be affected just yet, it's the first show of the new series, I would think most people would at least give it a chance.

Well. Meh. That finale was not good. Not good at all. In fact the whole series, whilst it had its moments, kind of fizzled out and meandered around going nowhere.

Not going to bother with season 2.

Seems a bit of a shame to have made it in confusion this far (like me), and not see the final part. I can't wait. Then I don't have to watch it again for the second series, assuming there is one, and...

I still haven't seen it, the screams were enough for me. I never got any further than Oberyn being grabbed by the Mountain, before I minimised the window (I don't have a TV).
