Sorry, I meant 'ah, BBC' in that I don't have the BBC. Well, we finally extricated ourselves from the TV licence anyway a few months back. But I would watch it otherwise, as I loved the movie.

The Big Flower Fight on Netflix is worth watching - it's yet another variant on the competitive crafts theme, following the same tired formula as the rest of them, but it's the cast of characters that really makes it. They've gone to great lengths to make sure all the diversity boxes have been ticked, and it's all the more watchable for it.

One of the judges is called Kristen Griffith-Vanderyacht, and lives up to his name.

It's spelled "Griffith-Vanderyacht" but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler-Mangrove"?

We did - Ep1 was good. Certainly better than most current "hit" US series!

Cardinal is on BBC2 tonight.

I just saw the trailer and it said tomorrow...  ???

I bet that's my wife confusing me by watching a recorded programme from yesterday.

I see they've sneaked a new series of QI out without me noticing.

War and Peace on BBC iPlayer

I missed this first time round but it just popped up on iPlayer. Watched the first episode last night and it was excellent. Great cast, Brian Cox, Ade Edmundson, Gretta Scacchi, Gillian Anderson, Rebeccas Front.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Just dicovered 'i may destroy you' and have devoured it on IPlayer.
You may remember Michaela Coel in other BBC efforts like Black Earth Rising, but this is a completely different role to anything I've seen her do before.
Apparently written and produced by her.
Highly recommended.
