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.

I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
Bedroom renovating part 1 – Making a reclaimed rustic wooden headboard
October 22, 2016
I watched back the September Favourites You Tube video I made, and I don’t think my tone of voice was sarcastic enough when I said that next time I’d be in the bedroom with a white headboard with fairy-lights and a vase of flowers and candle in the background! (This seems to be the setting of 99% of monthly favourites You Tube videos.) When I made that video we had no headboard at all; flaky plaster; holes in the ceiling and a lot of mess. Last weekend though, we got busy in the bedroom(!)…..
