The Brief - Series 1-2 [DVD]
The Brief - Series 1-2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Alan Davies
Price: 12.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant drama, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brief - Series 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent blend of drama/humour/whodunnit. Davies plays a very likeable, though disorganised junior barrister in a similar way to Jonathan Creek. A kind of Rumpole for the 21st Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little device for basic needs, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a cheap MP3 player for talking books and this is the ideal solution. Operation is basic - it doesn't have a display screen but it starts again where you switched it off last time. Some alternative earphones might be more comfortable than those provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your classic Status Quo track, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Heard this track after many years as the backing to a series of still photos. Vague recollections of hearing it as a teenager when it first came out. Couldn't believe it was Status Quo as it's not typical of their many other hits.

Abide With Me - 50 Favourite Hymns
Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent collection of hymns which would make a worthy travelling companion. With different contributors, you get varieties of style and interpretation. The price tag is very reasonable too. What are you waiting for?

Netgear AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack
Price: 15.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Like having a separate ethernet socket in any room, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Admit I was sceptical it could be this easy, but it is. Simply plugged in both units and linked up the TV box to the Internet for perfect BBC iPlayer streaming without having to bring the modem downstairs each time. N.B. This product doesn't extend wireless coverage so you'll need to use the ethernet cable provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is what it says it is, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rajah Cassia Bark 50g (Misc.)
Not sure there a lot to say about cassia bark - but it's like cinnamon only harder and imparts a gentle flavour to Indian dishes. Like bay leaves in a casserole, you don't eat the bark. The service was excellent and so was value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Briers at his brilliant best, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This never reached the cult status of 'The Good Life" but it's a gentle and clever 80s comedy featuring a much younger but instantly recognisable Penelope Wilton (Isobel Crawley in Downton Abbey). Peter Egan is excellent as the smooth-talking and outwardly successful Paul, who Martin (Briers) simultaneously resents and envies while his wife's (Wilton) affections seem to waver between the two. Howard and Hilda - a slightly eccentric married couple living in the same neighbourhood - are a delight to behold.

Well worth a trip back to a more innocent age when sitcoms didn't revolve around vulgar excess or need to be filtered for bad language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like an old friend, 11 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I managed to shut my first Nokia 6500 Slide in the car door, I decided to try a Sony Ericsson Vivaz... and immediately regretted my decision. After struggling with that for several months I decided simply to replace the original phone and I'm very glad I did. The Nokia 6500 Slide has a comfortable keypad, clear graphics, a very reasonable camera (3.2 Megapixels) and a solid, reliable feel to it. Texting is easy and phone signals are clear and uninterrupted. Obviously not as many features as touchpad models but great if you want your phone for real-time communication with other people. The best 'value for money' phone I've ever owned to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product - professional features, 5 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well worth the extra outlay, no problems at all getting the outdoor sensor to communicate with the indoor monitor. The raw information it delivers is relevant to amateur meteorologists and the generated forecasts (based on air pressure changes over a 24 hour period) are a helpful indication. Some understanding of specific terminology (e.g. dew point / relative vs. absolute air pressure) makes these features more meaningful. The only thing I wish it also had is a radio-controlled internal clock rather than one you set yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only limit is your imagination, 29 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone who's seen Masterchef knows that ice cream or sorbet can go way beyond the vanilla bricks that tasted of cardboard or the synthetic-tasting raspberry ripples of bygone days. My first attempt followed the Lemon Sorbet recipe in the receipe book which was thoughtfully supplied with the machine. Way better than anything commercially produced and once I've found a few receipes online, I going to try Guinness ice cream! Save it for treats or special occasions if you're watching the calories - or try one of the low fat/low sugar suggestions. Follow the instructions carefully and you won't go far wrong.
