For those who love to get to grips with the ins and outs of surgery in all its glory, Channel 5's 'Botched Up Bodies' is dream viewing. On a recent episode, I operated on a patient who had previously spent in excess of £7,000 on hair transplant surgeries - which sadly, yielded little result.

So You Want to Be a Brain Surgeon?

Mr Michael D Jenkinson

Brain surgery, it's not exactly rocket science... but it is one of those jobs that people can't quite believe you do, and I am usually asked if I am joking.... So what is it like being a neurosurgeon? In common with rocket science, neurosurgery sounds more glamorous than it really is.

Did anyone happen to see what Channel 5 decided to showcase on Christmas Day to win the TV ratings war? I'm sure millions tuned in but in case you didn't know, at 8.40pm Channel 5 decided to go into the prime time battle by screening Eddie Stobart - 12 Days of Christmas.

On Benefits and Proud - Misleading, Dishonest, Misdirecting?

Nick Stephenson | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Politics
Nick Stephenson

There was a brief moment in On Benefits & Proud which showed Heather's two dogs, a tiny Chihuahua and another ten times its size. The big one appeared to be happily co-existing with the small one and looking after it. It was not hard to imagine the show's producers, and Channel 5 itself, being disappointed at the care shown for the weak.

BB14 Final - My Opinion

Matthew Davies

Many viewers have said that this series of Big Brother was Channel 5's best ever. Actually, last years in my opinion was a LOT better. Even from the first few weeks I could tell that this year was not going to be anywhere near as entertaining or controversial as the events that took place in last year's house.

Under the Dome - Episode One - Review

It's not the greatest TV drama you'll see all year, but as a mid-August slice of escapism it wasn't bad, even if it featured all the usual trappings of a Stephen King-inspired tale.

Big Brother - Week 7 Opinion

This week was so dull that I actually had to remind myself to write a weekly recap. Does that say something about the fact this show is getting less interesting the longer it goes on?

Big Brother - Week 6 Opinion

Matthew Davies | Posted 27.09.2013 | UK Entertainment
Matthew Davies

For the first time this series, I'm genuinely gutted with this week's eviction outcome. Another twist that took place last week has essentially backfired again, leading to the eviction of the alpha-male in the house.

Big Brother - Week 5 Opinion

Matthew Davies | Posted 19.09.2013 | UK Entertainment
Matthew Davies

It's interesting to see how the tables have now turned. Dexter and Gina my two favourites are now recognised as the most popular housemates in the outside world, to the rest of them, whilst former "insiders" such as Hazel and Charlie are on the potential chopping line for next week.

Big Brother - Week 4 Opinion

Matthew Davies | Posted 12.09.2013 | UK Entertainment
Matthew Davies

The majority of this week's highlights have revolved around the Daley & Hazel relationship "story-line", which as Dexter even agrees is immensely cringey.

Big Brother - Week 3 Opinion

Matthew Davies | Posted 04.09.2013 | UK Entertainment
Matthew Davies

As the weeks go by I feel as though the number of housemates I can safely say "I like" are rapidly decreasing. This week appears to have been a key turning point when it comes to my opinions of a number of them.
