Watching The Detectives

| Posted 01.08.2012 | UK Entertainment

Stephen Moffat has a gift for taking well-known characters I personally couldn't be arsed about and making them incredibly engaging. Prior to him and Russell T Davies taking over, The Doctor was just a time travelling showband singer to me, and Sherlock a tweed-wearing wielder of a cartoonishly large magnifying glass. Now I wouldn't miss either show for the world.

Saturday Night Fever -Take Me Out And Borgen

Take Me Out is Blind Date adjusted for inflation, with Paddy McGuinness acting as a bombastic composite of both Cilla and Our Graham. But, as long as people are morbidly curious about the inherent awkwardness in publicly pursuing romance, there will always be a place for enjoyable malarkey like it.
