2.0 out of 5 stars Goodnight to both., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was slightly disappointed with this DVD as it seems to have lost much of it's lovability. The shows seem to be stale, all following the same format and very predictable. Some sketches are no longer funny and seem laboured. Gave up watching some of the shows as just seemed funny. Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time for a return to form., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time (Audio CD)
Glad I waited for this edition rather than buying when it first came out. This is Rod back to his best...yes there was a place for the Great American Songbook but four editions...really! This is back to the classic song writing and tunes we love. Of course the bonus is the extra disc with the live tracks. An essential purchase for any Rod fan.

As with my previous posting what can I say. This is a must have for any fan of the detective genre. Great acting. Brilliant guess stars. Wonderful locations. Fantastic. Just glad I don't live near Midsomer with all those murders!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grasp the Nettle., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Watched the original series on TV but then lost interest as it seemed to be the murder capital of the world...how can so many murders happen in such a small area. After watching an episode on TV for the first time in ten years we thoroughly enjoyed the show and decided to purchase the box sets. Yes you can usually guess who has committed the murder but the scenery and cottage are out of this world. The range of famous actors used in the series' shows you how highly it is regarded by the acting community. I would recommend this to any fan of the detective genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't You Forget About This!, 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw this and thought must have it for the DVD. Features many of the classic tracks and a few not so well known from later albums. DVD is well shot and sound is excellent. Simple Minds continue to tour and produce what the fans want, a well produced live show. Purchase it while you can at the price of £11.99 for 2 CDs and DVD.

This review is from: Endeavour - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Wonderful stories and brilliant acting. Any one who is interested in crime and detection dramas should have this in their collection. Can not wait for series three to see what happens next to Endeavour from the last episode of series 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great detective series., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered as a birthday present for my wife after watching a few episodes on Drama TV. The box set takes us back to our first years of marriage and watching Jim Bergerac on the lovely island of Jersey...how sad were we. Good to spot the range of character actors and story lines are generally good. Also you get the full episode and not the shortened versions being broadcast at the moment. Well worth the price with nine series with generally eight to ten episodes per series. perfect to chill out to.

Ordered these for my wife to go over her normal tinted prescription sunglasses as she still suffers from the glare and can trigger migraines. She just loves them. Glare reduced and no squinting. These fit easily over her normal glasses and do not look 'frumpy'. Ideal purchase.


Hannah Hauxwell - An Extraordinary Life [DVD]
Hannah Hauxwell - An Extraordinary Life [DVD]
Dvd ~ Hannah Hauxwell
Price: £8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary indeed., 4 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD has three different titles to view. The first introduces us to some of the characters in Yorkshire and Hannah Hauxwell is just one of these. It shows her struggle to keep her family farm going and some of her life outside the farm. How she managed to keep going in the conditions she did is a true tribute to her resilience and determination to keep the family memory going. In the second programme we see her moving from the farm as she could no longer keep up with the struggle to survive. How many of us would be prepared to go down to a frozen stream to get water or to drag food out to the cattle on the land in blizzard conditions. At the end of the programme we see her handing over her livestock to a neighbouring farmer and how heart broken she is. The final programme is when Hannah travels round Europe and we see immediately the effects of living in a warm cottage and not having to struggle from day to day. She looks so much younger and happier. A gentle woman who captured the hearts of the viewers. A wonderful purchase at the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'That's the way' it is., 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another superb remastered edition which even reproduces the original cover with the revolving inner sleeve. My 'Friends' you will certainly have a 'Celebration Day' when you listen to this. Nights 'Out On the Tiles'?.... I don't think so. you will want to be with the headphones on and the volume cranked up to listen to a classic album and doing the 'Bron-Y-Aur Stomp' around the 'Gallows Pole'!
Again great to have the bonus disc with alternate mixes and takes. Classic!
