United, BBC2's drama about the Manchester United 'Busby Babes' team and the tragic Munich plane crash that devastated them back in '58, starring David Tennant and Dougray Scott.

Fantastically acted, and one of the most moving dramas I've seen of late. iPlayer it if you can.

Didn't catch it but Busby's son was reportedly disgusted with the portrayal of his father.

Derren Brown : Miracles For Sale - Derren turns an ordinary member of the public into a 'faith healer' in order to expose the greed, deception and bullshit at the heart of this 'industry'.

Excellent programme ... I really enjoy Mr Brown as both a performer and as a debunking sceptic.

The Office. Haven't cared about this show for a few seasons now, but the last few episodes were pretty good. Steve Carell's send-off last night was well done. Have to imagine the show is done now, for all intents and purposes, even though it's been renewed for another season.

Dad's Army - "Hi Buddy"

Unfortunately, a very dated episode full of cringeworthy puns and gags you can see coming from a mile off. Still, Clive Dunn provides some amusing moments in his recollections of the "fuzzy wuzzys".

Doctor Who and now Sherlock ... good work, Fae.

Didn't like the story this week that Steven Moffat's commitment to Sherlock is apparently going to mean less Dr Who next year, though. :evil:

Although Moffat denied that on his Twitter page.

I love the new Sherlock. Very good.

Working my way back through "From the Earth to the Moon" for the first time in over a decade.

In some ways the precursor to Band of Brothers in terms of Kamen, Hanks, the storytelling but obviously different in everything else. It captured the imagination when I first saw it. It also added to the story I know of Apollo. I never heard anything post 11 beyond Apollo 13 (the film and its making giving Howard/Hanks the idea to do the series) and so seeing Apollo's 12, 14-17 was interesting. Each episode has something unique and powerful. Be it the hope in the first episode of achieving this dream, spurred on after Kennedy's death or tragedy with Apollo 1, triumph in Apollo 11, near tragedy in Apollo 13 and downright lightheartedness with the Apollo 12 story. A good episode is "Spider" detailing the making of the LEM but then so is the Apollo 12 episode, "Is that All There Is?"
The Apollo 13 episode was a key example of this show, telling it from a different angle and keeping it together Lane Smith as the fictional Emmett Seaborn (a kind of Cronkite figure) who is in the series from the start until Apollo 13's mission. Smith conveying intelligence, confidence and in the end, sadness.
Kamen's main and ending themes are sublime and each composer that worked on the episodes such as James Newton Howard brought something unique.
Should be added that there are a few well known faces throughout this but it's beyond them.

Yeah. Torchwood will need to be checked out as well at some point.

Though nothing really appeals to me from that atm. I think I'll just watch old Who.

To be honest, most of Torchwood falls into the "Ooo - aren't we cool? We're going to have lots of same-sex relationships and say 'fuck' a lot" but it has a few moments. I still haven't watched the Children of the Earth lot yet.

Again, like NuWho it took it a series to find its feet ... Season 1 was a little too 'Ooh, look! We might be a Doctor Who spin-off, but we have gore, swearing and sex talk/sexual tension - aren't we NAUGHTY!' at times.

But the second was very good ... and I thought the shown-across-five-consecutive-nights third was absolutely superb.

Great minds think alike, Rave. ;)

Hmmm - so the third one was okay after all? I may watch it then. I did record it on the Sky + box, just never played it.

It is indeed ... IMO it's sci-fi for adults, but not in the ways that seem to have irritated us both in previous episodes.

I thought Torchwood became quite tired once it was just Jack, Gwen and Owen on their lonesome and I prefer the show to stay in its own established universe, not the Who one. The standout factors for me in Children Of Earth were the scenes with the government/military and the decisions they had to make. Peter Capaldi's sub-plot was brilliantly done too, largely down to him being a marvelous actor.

The Many Faces Of Michael Caine

A so-so, hour-long BBC documentary charting 50 years of Caine's career. Didn't really learn anything new and it rapidly became an advertisement for two of his newer British films, Is Anybody There? and Harry Brown. I was also disappointed that no new interviews with Caine were conducted for this programme, the latest clips being from 2006 (with Caine in the middle of growing his beard for Children Of Men by the looks of things). Still, it was great seeing some footage from behind the scenes of The Man Who Would Be King with Caine, Sean Connery and director John Huston all in action. 8)

Watched that myself, G ... as you say, nothing terribly substantial but entertaining enough. New Top Gear straight afterwards, over to Beeb 4 for Rob Brydon's Identity Crisis after that and then onto the iPlayer to watch Coldplay's headlining gig from Saturday night at Glastonbury which I missed at the time due to being out.

Pretty good night's watching, all told. :)

Numerous episodes of Steptoe And Son. Dated as anything but Wilfrid Brambell's Steptoe is perhaps one of the finest comic creations of all time.

Can't get the theme out of my head.

I Dream of Jeannie. What stood out to me was when Jeannie blinked into a record shop and it had the soundtrack album to 1967's Casino Royale on the wall. No surprise since both !DOJ and CR'67 were Columbia products.
