5.0 out of 5 stars Not a new season release, 31 Aug 2013
This review is from: Time Team: Series 16 [DVD] (DVD)
I've given this item 5 stars because the episodes are brilliant. The team is at its colourful best, as always, and each episode is fascinating to watch. How do I know this when it hasn't even been released yet?

Well, despite being billed as a new season release, it is not. This is, in fact, a re-release of the "Friars Wash & Other Digs", with all the exact same episodes. So if, like me and my mother, you have all the available Time Team DVDs, be aware that this is not actually a new release at all - at least, not in the truest sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great episodes, but not a new product, 31 Aug 2013

This review is from: Time Team: Series 15 [DVD] (DVD)
I've given this item 5 stars because the episodes are brilliant. The team is at its colourful best, as always, and each episode is fascinating to watch.

HOWEVER, the way it has been packaged makes it appear as a new season release, and it is not. This is, in fact, a re-release of the "Codnor Castle & Other Digs", with all the exact same episodes. So if, like me and my mother, you have all the available Time Team DVDs, be aware that this is not actually a new release at all.

On the bright side, if you have been contemplating shelling out a ridiculous amount of money for a second-hand copy of the Codnor Castle DVD set, you now have the opportunity to get those episodes on a brand new DVD at an affordable price!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Squishy Ball of Fuzzy Love, 9 Aug 2012

When I first got my blue dragon mini squishable, I have to admit that I thought he was a bit of an odd-looking fellow. From the moment I picked him up, though, I was amazed at how unbelievably soft he is. This particular Squishable is utterly adorable. He has a fierce little face, but the softness of his body belies that. He's just perfect for cuddling, and even for using as little cushion for trips on the train!

He's not the least educational - unless you count being taught that hugs can soothe even the most ferocious person!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Selection for newcomers, 11 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit, first and foremost, that as a huge fan of John Barrowman I am fairly biased in his favour, but I sincerely believe this latest offering is an excellent selection of songs, especially for newcomers who may not be too familiar with his music.

Best known for his role as Captain Jack Harkness on Torchwood and Doctor Who, there are a lot of folk who aren't aware that his roots lie in musical theatre. His CDs over the years have been a fairly eclectic selection of music, ranging from musical theatre to modern day pop.

This latest CD contains a selection of songs from his previous three albums - "Another Side", "Music Music Music" and his self-titled album "John Barrowman". The songs are some of his favourites from each album, and if you already have those albums then you may be familiar with the meanings that each of those songs have for the entertainer.

In addition to the compilation of songs from previous albums, there are two newly recorded songs: Rod Stewart's "Tonight's the Night" and the new single "I Owe It All To You". It's been suggested that the inclusion of these two new recordings are simply a way to guarantee long-time fans will buy the new album, but that does not diminish the delight of having two new songs to listen to.

The album is a most enjoyable compilation for both newcomers and current fans. My only disappointment is that he has not included the beautiful song "Don't Cry Out Loud", from his previous album. That aside, this is well worth adding to the collection, and even more worthwhile for starting off an entirely new collection of John Barrowman music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant, 10 Dec 2008

This review is from: Music Music Music (Audio CD)
The latest offering from John Barrowman is fantastic - just the right mix of different music genres to create a hugely pleasurable listening experience. As with his last CD, there are a total of thirteen tracks, and each one is equally enjoyable to listen to.

Some of the top choices, though, would have to be his new single, "What About Us". This song was penned by Gary Barlow and offered to John Barrowman to record when the artist it was intended for apparently declined. It was originally believed that Barlow had written it specifically for John, but later reports have since corrected that unfortunate misconception. Nevertheless, it's a true pleasure to listen to him sing an original song.
Other particularly noteworthy songs are "Right Here Waiting For You", "From A Distance", "Uptown Girls" and the duet version of "I Know Him So Well". The latter song is also on the CD as a solo version, and is great to listen to, but it can't match the beautiful vocal harmonies that Barrowman produces alongside the talented Daniel Boys. It is the first time this song has been sung by a male duet, and they do the job superbly.

The track "From A Distance" is by far my favourite. I admit to being biased, because I'm more partial to ballads, but John sings this track magnificently.

On the whole, the CD is well worth every cent. John Barrowman has never failed to please with his musical offerings but, in my humble opinion, this is certainly his best compilation to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant addition to the collection for Captain Jack fans, 22 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, it should be said that there is nothing new in this little book for anyone who has watched the Evolution of Jack from when he first appeared in season 1 of Doctor Who, through to the end of 'The Last of the Time Lords' in season 3. For those who have watched (and rewatched) all the Doctor Who episodes that he is in, nothing in this book will be a surprise.
So why bother buying it, then? For me, primarily because of the pictures. It's full of various glossy shots of Jack, from his season 1 appearances through to season 3. That, and it is purely and simply fun.
It's a nice little, inexpensive book giving all the facts about one of Doctor Who's most lovable rogues, with lots and lots of photos to satisfy any fan.
