Whilst the general consensus is that the first episode of the second series of Broadchurch was “amazing”, it would seem that some of you weren’t as impressed with lead star David Tennant and his performance…

Now, the episode that we watched was nothing short of brilliant as Tennant headed up the all-star cast while bringing to life the aftermath of the murder from series one as the killer changed his plea to not guilty, meaning that a trial would ensue.

Last Tango in Halifax Episode Two: Anne Reid shines in this much-improved instalment (Spoilers)

Anne Reid Derek Jacobi

In my review of the Last Tango in Halifax series three opener I bemoaned the introduction of Alan’s secret son Gary and how it appeared to be just another plot device to hinder Alan and Celia’s happiness. At the same time I voiced my faith in Sally Wainwright’s storytelling skills and it appears as if I was right to do so as tonight’s second instalment is a lot stronger. Although I still have problems with the Gary storyline, I felt that Wainwright did her best to justify Alan’s fling with Gary’s mother and I felt that Celia’s reaction to the news was completely realistic. In fact, I would go as far as to say as this was definitely Celia’s episode tonight as her presence dominated the whole hour.
