Coronation Street

Coronation Street

So for the first time ever we had to write to the producers to tell them about the barbecue storyline. We thought it was truly embarrassing and has no place in a programme of quality. No sooner had we sent that off than we had to write again to congratulate them on the portrayal of Hayley's illness. It is an exceptionally moving storyline, and both the acting and the dialogue is realistic and compelling.

So probably you either watch this or you don't, and nothing we say here will change that. However, we do have to recommend this to you as a very well written piece of Drama. Hayley is something of a misfit, and for several years has been married to Roy, a man who also has more than his share of problems relating to other people. They are in fact the real 'Odd Couple' and after years of being social outcasts, they have found each other and been accepted. They are a thoroughly likeable couple.

Sadly, Julie Hesmondhalgh (who plays Hayley), has decided to leave the soap and the opportunity for a tear-jerker cannot be missed by the writers of our favourite soap......

Drop Dead Diva Elementary Grey's Anatomy How I Met Your Mother Sherlock New Tricks The Newsroom



Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson have been portrayed hundreds of times over the years, in movies, television and radio. In the last couple of years we have seen a new take on the old story, in both the UK and the US. The new approach is simple enough: set the characters and stories in the modern day.

So we have a Sherlock Holmes of the 21st Century. Still an amateur sleuth, still a maverick genius, but a master of modern technology. The US story has another twist: Watson is a girl. But here we are concerned with the UK Sherlock played by Benedict Cumberbatch with Martin Freeman as Watson.


The Blacklist

Blacklist is the great new show about an FBI agent Elizabeth Keen played by Megan Boone and her most wanted informant, James Spader. Raymond Reddington (Spader) is the violent psychopath who exacts revenge on his (also criminal) enemies by helping the FBI catch them. Absolutely brilliant TV that you must see....
