Campus

On channel 4 on Wednesday evenings. A comedy series by the same writer and creator as Green Wing, Victoria Pile.

I loved Green Wing, but I’m sitting here watching the second episode of Campus feeling rather underwhelmed. I’m really hoping that the more I watch it, the more the characters will grow on me, but at the moment, I’m not sure they will. Even the horrible characters in Green Wing were funny or likeable in some weird way, but there are too many people in Campus that I simply find annoying. The main character, Jonty de Wolfe being the worst of the lot – it especially grates on me when he shouts at people through the megaphone. I just don’t find it funny. No doubt this’ll be the very untrendy thing to admit to – I am reminded of all those celebrity The Office fans condescendingly telling the others that ‘you just don’t get it.’ (Incidentally I did like The Office, but I didn’t say that to those who didn’t!)

The whole thing feels a bit forced, like it’s trying too hard to be weird. I like Lydia Tennant, Flat pack, Imogen Moffat and Matt Beer, but not the others really. There are some funny moments, and it’s fine to have on whilst I’m updating this site or checking Etsy, so I’ll keep going, and as I get more used to it, hopefully I’ll enjoy it more.

There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
Review of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London
A review of Agatha Christie’s play, Witness for the Prosecution, at County Hall, London

It was my birthday last week. And it was a big one. The kind with a zero. The weekend afterwards I celebrated with my family (which was lovely – look out for the vlog coming soon!) and I’m in the process of organising a day my friends are free at the same time to celebrate with them (I am determined to milk this for as long as possible!), but for my actual birthday day, I wanted to do something special. All the time the kids were young, I hardly bothered celebrating my birthday, but although we have had a couple of days out in more recent years, this time I really wanted to make it count. So, I went online to see what theatre productions are on in London at the moment. I’ll be honest, I wavered and nearly didn’t bother with the whole idea because my god, it’s expensive isn’t it? And why can’t they tell you the price of tickets until after you’ve given half your personal details, chosen the date and studied the seating plan?! We were also limited by the type of thing we’d all be interested in. Something we’d all love is of course The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, but at £1160 for the four of us to see both parts that day, we decided our Harry Potter fan-ship can be shown with Primark mugs and slippers (that wear through in 3 weeks) instead! However, something else we all enjoy watching on the telly together is Agatha Christie adaptations, and when I found out that Witness for the Prosecution was being played in an actual courtroom, that tipped the balance over Mousetrap (which I’m pretty hopeful will still be on for my 50th birthday!) and I booked the tickets….
