The Sound of Music Live: A masterpiece of Christmas television

The Sound of Music is and always will be my favourite musical. Featuring historical drama, nuns, and songs that can’t help but make you sing along, I spent most of my childhood running around the house and garden (or pretty much any location) singing ‘The Lonely Goatherd’ and ‘Do-Re-Mi’.

Why I can’t stop watching Gilmore Girls

Downton Abbey – Series 6 so far…

*Updated: It seems I was rather confused when writing this post in saying that there was only one episode left of this series. I stand corrected, there are eight episodes in the series, not six.

Review: Strictly Come Dancing – Week 1 Part 1

Strictly Come Dancing 2015 – Predictions

Last night there was a  collective sigh of relief as hugely popular BBC entertainment show Strictly Come Dancing returned to our screens. Whilst we didn’t get to see much of the celebrities dancing last night, that didn’t stop me making my quick judgements for the prospects of this year crop of stars. Take a look…
