Maybe I need to make my accent a bit posher.
There's a show where somebody obviously came up with a title and worked backwards. Reminds me of some of Alan Partridge's ideas for shows featuring himself.

Not yet cos it doesn’t look like all the episodes are available and my memory isn’t what it used to be!

Just starting Deadwind season 3 after a quick refresher on the previous 2.

Young Strawbridge has been lined up for feeding time, after the monkeys have finished playing tennis.

OK. Think because it is a More4 show v an All4 show, they only put up the episodes on a weekly basis. Deadwind was good, enjoyed it.

The U20s!
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Two interesting games. An absolute whipping and a tight game that could have gone either way. No spoilers, just in case. :D

Hard enough auld watch Solids.
For me the sister and the guard's young lad were the standout performances.

James Martin is class. Hope his fillum wins.
