After spending six weeks watching Mark Rylance do the best "I'm glum but determined and actually a lot smarter than you imagine" face, whilst also never fully closing his eyes, I now feel totally qualified to pass comment on all things Tudor.
At the end of the film, the parents of the murdered girl, Jyoti, offer profound hope by reflecting that their daughter's name means 'light' and that even in death, Jyoti ignited a light in her country that continues to burn because the people have vowed to protest, to press for justice and equality for women.
We are so excited to be part of the BBC Three Comic Relief documentary, Stop Cutting Our Girls: A Comic Relief Special. We have been on a journey trying to publicise FGM. To go from learning about it amongst ourselves in a little room to talking about it on national TV is really exciting and we're all really proud of ourselves.
I feel very lucky to have been so well received by the great British public but I can't imagine everyone's experience is the same. So my top tip has to be: be yourself! Yes, it's a cliché, I'm afraid, but it's true. If you get on the show, it's a great opportunity...
As licence-fee payers, shouldn't we have a say in the artist and song that represents our country in an international competition? As consistently one of the highest-rated programes on television in the country in the whole year, shouldn't the lead-up programme be shown on a mainstream channel (rather than hidden behind the Red Button)?
This Saturday's epic battles are the reason the show is doing so well. World class singers, likeable coaches and enjoyable watchable TV.
The gang rape and murder of 23-year-old Jyoti Singh in Delhi in December 2012 caused massive national and international outrage. How sad, therefore, that the Indian government has decided to ban the showing of an extraordinary television documentary about the case that was shown on BBC4 last night.
For those who are unaware of the characters in The Big Bang Theory, there are two females who have careers in microbiology and neuroscience. Bernadette and Amy both hold roles that represent the true power of women, and have on countless occasions proved they can be just as influential as their male co-stars' characters, sometimes even out-smarting them.
The Committee suggests that the licence fee should be extended to cover catch-up TV and that some BBC services might be provided on subscription. But beyond this it recommends only "careful thought".
The blind auditions are over and the chosen singers will now go head to head against one of their team mates. The victor will progress to the knock out stage. For the loser they either get stolen, (not literally) by another coach or pack up and go home.
Through it all, Anne Kirkbride remained one of the Street's most robust pillars - the youngest of that generation of stars who gave their whole working life to a TV soap, came into people's homes three times a week, entertained them and, in return, earned a place in our collective affection denied much bigger screen stars.
There are a million and one things to consider when moving house including ordering a phone line and a broadband connection. However, I strongly recommend waiting to ensure you get the right deal for you and don't end up paying more than is necessary.
Now one-time Corrie regular Ken Morley has been ejected for his "unacceptable and offensive language". Goodbye, Ken. It is doubtful that anyone other than your agent will mourn your departure.
I am pressing on with my lonely foray into character comedy and writing what I hope might some day be the pilot of a sitcom - helped by Micheal Jacob, my writing mentor who has, so far never backed away from me in a social situation (although there's still time).
I was nervous about the arrival of the Real Housewives to our shores, and rightly so. Us Brits don't have the best track record when it comes to adapting American reality shows.
After the build-up that had TV executives instructing lawyers to watch and listen to every word that Katie Hopkins spoke, it is a statement of how far Big Brother has plunged that she has become a voice of reason and has even garnered some sympathetic ears.
