Waking The Dead

On BBC1, Monday and Tuesday evenings at 9pm. Starring: Trevor Eve, Sue Johnston, Tara FitzGerald, Wil Johnson and Felicite du Jeu. Writer: Paul Farrell. Director: Sam Miller.

Wow this new series is good. The story-lines are exciting, different and full of drama and the acting is top quality. So far there hasn’t been a single slow episode. It’s also refreshing to actually have something to look forward to at the beginning of the week. If you haven’t watched it before, there’ll be no trouble in starting half way through the series. All you need to know is Boyd has a drug-addicted son who’s in and out of various institutes and although Boyd loves him, he doesn’t quite know how to deal with him.

Actually that’s the only thing that’s annoying me with this series; the occasional phone call of, ‘Luke? I can’t hear you; Luke? I’m in the middle of something; Luke? Are you all right?’ and the often staring into middle distance with a trace of a tear in his eye. I feel a little patronised by it, but I’m not sure why. Maybe because I think it’s obviously inevitable that Luke will end up dead in the last episode.

Also the constant disagreements between Boyd and Grace are a little tired.

But these are minor grievances in an otherwise fantastic crime drama.

However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall

Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
