Think I'll give this one a miss. Apparently it's set in the 50s and is more Agatha Christie than Wallander. I get the impression the TV companies just stick anything on from Scandinavia at times and...

Have just started reading Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris. Have read a couple of her other novels years ago so thought I'd give this a go as I like the poetic way that she evokes sights,...

Well I'm glad a few people in this thread thought that. I came into the thread with some trepidation, wondering if it was just me who thought last night's ep was dull. The jokes didn't raise a smile...

Only in this country (oh and the US) could such a person be somehow looked up to by the masses.

It's about the level of a school production - it looks so cheaply done.

Best part of the build up so far was spotting The Bridge theme tune - Hollow Talk by Choir of Young Believers - over the top of the Billy Connolly piece. :p

Actually I think there was an artistic reason to do it. I found it an ingenious technique, making me feel closer to Cromwell's character - as if you're actually in his mind - it somehow allowed me to...

Whitney's and Lauren's hair styles looked horrible - really dated and Lauren's was too flat against her head with wispy bits sticking out. They certainly didn't look like they'd been done in a trendy...

Yes it is - freaked me right out when I read it at the age of 16! It was recommended by my A-level English literature teacher. It's one of those disturbing books that stays with you - you keep...

I haven't been to Chelsea but I didn't like its gardens this year - maybe it's a better experience when you're there; can't comment. The last time I went to the Hampton Court Show was about 20 years...

RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2014

Time for this again already - just down the road from me so it's busy on the roads around here!

We'll see what the BBC coverage is like - let's hope it's better than its coverage of Chelsea. From...

So true. A lot of the gullible public treat cycling as a scapegoat but athletics and tennis are likely to be just as bad. The drug testing in tennis is a joke. Before anyone makes the "Tennis is a...

No it's not - you can easily cheat with the Biopassport as they just microdose. Instead of the levels of drugs going up and down lots, they just do it more subtly.

Personally I think lots of the...

Yeah I thought they'd go for that 'good guys win' ending (was actually upset when Malvo died) so am disappointed in that as I'd wanted more ambiguity but otherwise a great series.

And you have to...

I actually want to see Malvo go off into the sunset (he's a great character) - or there be at least some kind of an ambiguous ending. He obviously represents the devil and they can't catch the devil,...

I don't want Lester to get away with it but I wouldn't mind if he got his comeuppance via Malvo. Let's not forget that Malvo has that recording of Lester phoning him and saying he killed his wife.

Argh, I wouldn't want any of Saga's colleagues to fall for her. That'd be far too cliché - something you'd expect from a British show.
