God, this has made me realise how much I didn't get around to seeing. Had planned to watch Ripper St, Wrong Mans and Broadchurch but missed them all.

I liked Utopia, too - proper disturbing stuff, at times. My attention drifted a bit towards the end (until the finale).

I liked Peaky Blinders and I think the Beeb were quite brave - for a change - and it paid off.

Danny Baker did a great little series about landmark soul / rock etc albums. I think it was bbc3 and it's just been re-commissioned.

A wildcard - there was a series like a "bake-off" programme but it was about making clothes. Amateur "seamstresses" had to make a suit, shirt etc. I thought it was great. :-[

Jaysus, apologies for the ramble. For me:

Best Factual: Danny Baker's Album Show.
Drama:Peaky Blinders

Was that Danny Baker show the one where one of the guests on an episode was Mica Paris? I had to turn it off halfway through because nobody could get a word in over her.

Ah, not just me then?? Bugger me, but that girl can talk. Was hoping Baker might have said, 'F*ck me, Mica, come up for air'

Ha! Yeah - it was Mica Paris and she was pretty trappy.. It was the "Rhythm & Blues LP's" episode.  The guests on with her were Trevor Nelson and Martin Freeman - both gents in my eyes - and wouldn't find it easy to tell her to pipe down.

Peaky Blinders for me also. Loved it.

Would like to see another Martina Cole novel adaptation soon too. 'The Take' and 'The Runaway' were excellent.

Utopia was simply mind blowing.

Almost eye-popping at times, Steve! (bawk!).


Your not wrong...that and the school scene were real shockers.
