  • Dr Who is a definite watch of course(-: but also looking forward to Just William as I love the books & Daniel Roche is perfect casting. None of the comedy is exactly jumping out at me, as am not huge fan of the Royle Family, didn’t like what I saw of Rock & Chips& loathe Miranda. I expect we shall watch Come Fly with Me, and the One Ronnie looks more promising then I thought.
    The drama looks a lot better, so I shall probably give most of that a go & we’ll definitely be watching Top Gear.
    I expect youngest will make watch Horrible Histories, which I enjoy anyway a) from nostalgia as my friend was the orginal editor of the books and b) daughter has learnt more about history from HH then she ever has at school.
    Thanks for the line up, Rob. Has helped me prevaricate all morning…
