BBC 4: Cornwall's Red River

Peaceful thirty minute stroll from the source to the sea of a river critical to understanding Cornwall's industrial past. Takes in the flora and fauna of the watercourse as well as the environmental impact of mining.

A brief escape from the troubles of the world.

Anyway, for all the things you said, tell me why does the river run red?

when the run off from the mining has ceased to pollute the river and the flow reduces to the point that algae can flourish.

Yes, interesting. Mrs W and I stayed in Camborne for a couple of nights last summer, when visiting our ex-neighours who moved to Redruth about 18 months ago. I saw a few of the derelict mine buildings as we travelled around, but like most other people, either saw nor was aware of the red river.

We’ve been watching a couple of the Harlan Coben drama/mysteries on Netflix. The two we’ve watched both star Davpaz.

10/10, excellent Davpaz-ing by Richard Armitage, especially in The Stranger.

Overall 8/10. Solid mystery. Great performances in the whole, especially by the younger kid in The Stranger.

You’re in at least two!

I don’t know if anyone else sees it, but the actor really reminds me of you. Maybe not so much in his portfolio head shots, but when he’s actually acting he really does look like you (I think).

You think Richard Armitage looks like Davpaz?

I really can't see that (and I think everyone looks like everyone)

I do think mostly of you as the you from ten years ago when we went to the zoo, but I think you’re probably the same age/younger than him so it’s not because you were younger then.

In my mind He still looks like he does in Robin Hood, Spooks or The Hobbit

But thankyou. I'll take it as a compliment and move on ;)

I said ‘or younger than’ :D

Anyone over the age of 25 is ‘about 43 years old’ to me, until they reach about 60.

I don’t think I’ve seen/known him in any of those things. I mean, I’ve seen The Hobbit film, but didn’t know who he was in it.

BBC 2 : Banned! The Mary Whitehouse Story

Fascinating portrait of one of the most prominent campaigners and pantomime villains of post-war Britain. Interesting to see how she created the image of the ordinary housewife despite being a strident activist throughout her life.

It makes good use of archive clips, marred only by unnecessary recreated shots of the back of her head watching something she disapproves or of her hands at the typewriter.

Disappointingly. the show makes no effort to uncover what particular show she claimed to have watched at 6:30 one Thursday evening, despite that being one of her most memorable speeches. I also felt the "but perhaps she was right" aspect felt a bit tacked on, unless they explore this further in part two.

We watched episode 1.

Then gave up on it. I seem to be doing this a lot on recent dramas.

I think I'm going to give that a miss as well.

Maybe I should just stop watching TV altogether.

The milky-milky character made me laugh back then, but I'm not sure how funny it would be to me now.

Mentioning Jupiter's Legacy in the movie thread - we started Guardians of Justice the other day. It's also "I'm not Marvel but want to make a superhero show anyway" but done well. Part Watchmen, part Scott Pilgrim, part Spaced.

I'm pretty sure it's got Diamond Dallas Page as the lead too.

I think it's great anyway - I'll be watching the rest of it on my own :D

Brilliant episode of Taskmaster this week. Really warming to the cast, none of whom (with the exception of Father Dougal) have I come across before.

Highlights were the prize task, the annoying round, and the cones.

A bit taken aback by the content warning at the start, with the announcer warning that it had been filmed before the war in Ukraine, so naturally I watched with increase interest as to what that might have been.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Either Ardal O'Hanlon's trench warfare or the utterly emotionally devasting Laika scene

I missed the first two minutes of this, so didn't see the content warning.

So when I saw the Laika sketch, I did assume that this must have been filmed before Ukraine, because it seemed odd to be featuring a Russian thing, but it's not a great look for the Russians anyway.


I loved Bridgette Christie before, and she is amazing in this series, and completely stole the episode. I had recently been introduced to Sophie Duker about a year ago, and quite like her humour and am also liking her in this.

Ardal O'Hanlan seems to be quite competitive in the studio and wants to find holes in everyone else's achievements, which is unexpectedly funny. Not really seen the other two before, I don't think I'll be actively seeking out their stuff, but they both have their moments.

Russel T Davies is taking over running it again, so it has a chance of being pretty great. Here's hoping

To be honest, I don’t necessarily like the good ones. I just like some Doctors, and not some others, and the knew I do like aren’t the most popular Sylvester McCoy and the recent one with the big ears who liked fish fingers and custard.

Edit: Googled it: Matt Smith.
