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.

Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
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!….
What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
