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.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
