Waking The Dead

On Sundays and 2nd part on Mondays at 9pm on BBC1. Starring Trevor Eve, Sue Johnston, Wil Johnson, Estha Hall, Felicite du Jeu

Last week was the start of the new series of Waking The Dead and I was pleased to see its return as there really isn’t a lot that I like on telly! It’s on its fifth series now, and I only caught it’s fourth for the first time; so if you don’t know what it’s about: a group of cold case police investigators work on reopening and solving crimes.

The new female character wasn’t brought in with a large role straight away in the first episodes, and they dealt with the difficulty of working without Mel (who used to be played by Claire Goose) pretty well, without over-doing it.

I enjoyed watching the first 2 episodes but I think they were being a bit too ambitious with the complicated plot in that story. There were moments where I was getting side-tracked with a magazine on my lap instead of getting drawn into the drama on the telly. I’m hoping this was just an attempt at an interesting story to get people watching this series, and that tonight’s episode will be more of a straightforward who-dunnit muder!

I’ll be watching it again, but I’ll have a magazine ready just in case.

26/09/2005 I am adding to this review:

After watching last night’s and tonight’s episodes, my suspicions are confirmed and these two were far better than last weeks and no magazines were needed!

I was wrong about the character who I thought was staying last week, and actually Mel’s replacement, Stella, appeared on Sunday and was part of the story today. She’s likeable, and I think she’ll be good. I’m looking forward to her story being revealed as there were hints that there’s something more to her than it seems at first.

Like I said, the story was great this week and I really enjoyed watching it. As usual, however, they seem to suddenly run out of time and don’t bother to finish some of the smaller things going on. The dodgy copper who shot the other dodgy guy wasn’t seen getting arrested, and there were loose ends needing tying and it was just an annoying ending. Other than that though, I have no complaints and I’ll be setting my Sky+ on Series Link to record them all so I don’t miss any.

Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
