    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    Philippa Gregory takes a lot of liberties with the truth. Love Middleham, big fan of Richard 111 and BBB trained there of course.
    Baby maybe better come back next week, can't you see I'm on a losing streak

    I know; but the books are very readable. The years when I devoured books by Tolstoy and Orwell etc are long since gone....!

    I won’t bore you with our full lockdown vowing as we've watched a film or 2 tv episodes as a family every night. They’ve all been pretty mainstream, but these are the three (all tv) highlights:

    Peaky Blinders – can’t be many people on the planet who haven’t watched it yet, but we all loved it

    Luther – great stories and Idris Elba is very believable

    The Goldberg’s – US family comedy based in the 80’s. Great for us as something for everyone!

    If you haven't tried Sharon Penman...try Sharon Penman. Also the Shardlake books by C J Sansom.

    Fantastic drama though.

    Just started a German language series called Dark on Netflix. Sort of like a mixture of It/Stranger Things. Very promising.

    Remarkably enough, I also watched the first two episodes last night. Seems promising so far.

    Just watched The History Boys again on BBC4, something that one never tires of - like the Kate Bush video of Sat In Your Lap. Or the dawn of a new day. Or the form of a young lady erupting into adulthood but not yet realising the power that she has over any man - and therefore not yet using it - all glorious.

    Wealth of acting talent in that film. I saw it on stage with a lot of the same cast - think it worked better as a film. Very slight difference in the ending on the stage of what happened to the young male teacher though, and therefore the actual final scene, which I think was better in the stage version.

    Also the basis, very loosely, for the comedy series Episodes, which was very, very funny.
    Baby maybe better come back next week, can't you see I'm on a losing streak

    I recorded it. Looking forward to watching.
