Afterlife

ITV Saturdays 9:05pm Written by Charlie Fletcher. Starring Lesley Sharp and Andrew Lincoln (Teachers)

This series is unfortunately disappointing. I watched the first episode four weeks ago and thought it looked good, but I missed the next couple of weeks, and watched it again on Saturday.

It is about a psychic woman who moved house for a new start and to try and escape the voices from the dead. Sadly for her, they don’t go away, and she comes accross Robert, a pschology teacher and writer, and the ghost of his dead son. Each week there’s a different story and different characters get involved.

I feel there is a certain mis-casting – sorry to say Lesley Sharp seems far too miserable as Alison. Granted, she would be miserable with screaming dead babies waking her up all the time; but even when she’s angry she seems to have the same expression. There needs to be something more likeable about the main character really, but perhaps it’s not clear whether it’s the fault of the actress or the director.

This is a series with a great idea, but I couldn’t help thinking, this is one rare case where the Americans would have done it better.

Radio Times mentioned last week’s episode that I missed, was terrifying, so I may give it another go, but I may not.

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….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
