Life on Mars (series 2)

Blip…blip…blip. My review of the second series of Life on Mars.

Starring John Simm, Phillip Glenister, Liz White. Written by Mathew Graham, Directed by Andrew Gunn. On BBC1, 9pm Tuesdays

I think I raved on about how I loved the first series, so I won’t bother doing it again. John Simm is still just as gorgeous. (Did I mention how he smiled at me at Run To the Sun festival in 2001?) (and that’s despite him being with some tall blonde model person) (and despite me being with my husband!) (Oh I did mention it? Sorry!) Where was I? Oh yes, how brilliant Life on Mars is. Truly original (well actually rather similar to the Sweeny and other 70s cop dramas) for our generation and the format works beautifully. If you’ve missed most the series, get the dvd which is out now. I may have to, to find out how it ends.

 

PS Just seen this week’s episode and the Camberwick Green thing was genius! We want to see a whole series of Life on Mars in Camberwick Green style!

 

Wow! What a good episode. But then they all have been. This is the best drama series I’ve ever seen on telly ever. Full of action, humour, suspense and a little bit of romance too. Not to mention John Simm to look at…

Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
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…
What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..
