    So I take it Torchwood did not get any better?
    I might watch the last ep just to find out what's going on or I could just read it on wiki.:shrug:

    Had a half decent episode here and there and a few minutes of worthwhile stuff per episode, but overall not really. Though I hear the last one is fairly good.

    Did anyone watch The Bodyfarm? It was ok, but nothing beyond that. Twas nice to see Ray Carling again, and also Larry Nightingale from Blink (took me most of the episode to place him, for shame!) and I did like Eve at one point saying she'd had enough of hostile interrogations :lol: but on the whole it's nothing new, and in fact nothing Silent Witness doesn't do a whole lot slicker, and their scientific advisors either stink or they don't listen to them. How quickly did they get DNA and paternity tests done? Seconds, minutes? Even by tv standards it was fast!

    Recorded, not watched yet though. Not expecting great things to be honest.

    Philip Glenister's new series Hidden starts on October 6th at 9 on BBC One...
    Merlin also starts on the 1st presumably before or after the last episode of Doctor Who.

    And there's a Biopic of Shirley Bassey's life on BBC Four next Thursday...

    Hidden sounds interesting, I'll obviously be watching Merlin, and I might give the Shirley Bassey bio a go as well.

    Looks like the Beeb have commissioned a third series of Garrow's Law. I remember liking the first 2 episodes but I never saw any more.

    I enjoyed the first season but saw little or none of the second. I might try and catch up with it, as I heard the quality was maintained. The sappy romantic subplot was irritating but the legal stuff was interesting.

    Aren't they always? Isn't there even a Doctor Who line something like "The best Walford Christmas Ever!"

    The DW team look about as comfortable as a nun in a poledancing club.

    So true.
    Also because more and more people are watching the BBC via I player, there are less and less people watching the ads.
