5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series., 22 May 2016
I watched the original uk version of this series and while it was ground breaking, I didn't think it was a great series. When I heard they were remaking it for the us market, I wasn't interested.

How wrong I was. I bought the first season based on the great reviews on amazon and have been completely hooked. All five seasons are great and the characters really develop along the way.

Definitely the best 'gay' series I've ever seen.

Disappointing concert.

I love Burt Bacharach but bought this mainly because Rebecca Ferguson and Alfie Boe were featured.

As usual, Rebecca was great bu Alfie Boe was wasted singing an unknown song from some failed musical. The other artists were ok but what really spoiled it for me was the interview with michael grade. He must be one of the most irritating interviewers I've ever seen and ruined the show for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprise, 4 Feb. 2016

Very surprised at how good this series is.

I watched the uk version when it was broadcast and thought it was ok, groundbreaking in its way but not very well acted etc.

I only bought the US version because of the positive reviews and am pleased I did. It's very well acted and the storyline seems more complete. I agree that it is unnecessarily explicit at times but overall highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab first novel, 1 Feb. 2016
Great debut novel.

Really enjoyed this book. The characters are very well-written and there are plenty of twists and turns in the story to keep you guessing just until the end.

Highly recommended.

Looking forward to the second book, which is hopefully due sometime later in 2016

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Dec. 2015
This review is from: My Old Lady [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Disappointing film.

The writing was poor and the story very weak.

It was just really dull, despite the cast. I'm normally a big fan of both maggie Smith and Kristen Scott-Thomas but they're wasted in these roles.

Very disappointing book.

Gave up halfway through. I've enjoyed most of Marian Keye's previous books but this just didn't engage me.

Complete collection of Dusty.

Makes you realise how many great songs she sang and the voice as always is fabulous.

This review is from: Lilting [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent film. The acting is top-notch and an original touching story, beautifully told. We lent it to friends who thought the same thing, very moving storyline.

I'd definitely recommend this film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not exceptional album, 24 Sept. 2015

This review is from: Jane McDonald (Audio CD)
Good collection of songs.

It's obvious that Jane McDonald has a good voice but there's not a lot of originality on this album.

Highlight for me is her version of Twelth of Never, which is great.
