Hex

On Sky One on Sundays at 9pm starring Christina Cole, Jemima Rooper and Laura Piper

I marked this in my diary as soon as I got the date for the second series of Hex and I’m so pleased this time it’s got a decent thirteen episodes. The budget must have increased as the effects were better too.

If you haven’t seen it before, you can catch up from the dvd of the first series (£24.99 in Sainsburys; or Amazon) and actually I think you would need to watch it to understand what’s going on; but I’m sure you’ll get into it even if you haven’t.

The first episode wasn’t a disappointment and continued the story about the mysterious pregnancy. I like the fact that Cassie’s teacher, played Anna Wilson-Jones, is now involved too. I love that there is more interraction with Thelma now that this new character has come along; though no one quite knows what she is yet. I wonder if the other ghost that appeared briefly at the end of last series will return?

I do have a few critisisms though. Mainly – I was hugely disappointed with Thelma’s change of costume. I fully understand that she wants to be wearing something different (though I still want that dress) ; but honestly – a leaperd print camisole type top and skinny cropped jeans???? Thelma’s character would never wear something as mainstream fashionable as that, and I really hope she finds another dead person to exchange clothes with soon.

Also, the makers of Hex have got to understand that although we love it, and are willing to go along with the fantasy of it – some things have really got to be explained. Some really obvious things like although we know other people can’t see Thelma, but can they hear her? She made a pretty big noise with the dustbin outside the church in this episode, so did Jo hear her? And (really overdue for an answer on this one) Why don’t people notice Cassie talking to thin air (When she’s talking to Thelma)? Is it really some kind of telepathy speaking?

And they mentioned that Cassie’s boyfriend didn’t come back, but didn’t say why. And is the new blonde girl a different actress but the same character, or a different character in that group of friends? We can accept lesbian ghosts and ancient devil things, but we need some basic explanations please.

Still, a highlight in my television week, and Sky 1 are on to a winner here.

Entertainment, TV,

Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
