    I love Call the Midwife ! Did I ever tell you that Jenny Aggutter who plays Sister Julienne, owns Reena's grand-daughter?

    No! Oh that is a wonderful bit of trivia, thank you! I love it too. I watch the entire series, in order every year. I usually start it in February or March, so that I'll just be ready for the new season when it comes out (in the US) on DVD in May. this year I got behind in my watching some how. Oh I remember, because I was involved with As Time Goes By, which I watched from beginning to end to make sure all the discs worked,(since I bought the entire set) and Doc Martin (do not own it, just watched it through my free library service).

    I got very impatient with some of Doc Martin but saw through to the end, all 9 seasons...until another comes out.

    She is a superb actress, I remember her in the Railway Children.

    She was in Walkabout. It is a great film and all the actors are superb ,

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walkabout_(film)
    Walkabout
    is a 1971 British-Australian survival film directed by Nicolas Roeg and starring Jenny Agutter, Luc Roeg, and David Gulpilil. Edward Bond wrote the screenplay, which is loosely based on the 1959 novel Walkabout by James Vance Marshall. Set in the Australian outback, it centres on two white schoolchildren who are left to fend for themselves in the Australian outback and who come across a teenage Aboriginal boy who helps them to survive.

    That's such a great film. I might watch that again this weekend it will follow my Aussie theme as I've watched a couple of Australian drama's this week

    The first was The Secrets She Keeps on BBC, quite good especially the actor playing Agatha.

    Next was Stateless on Netflix which I really enjoyed. Very upsetting at times but so well acted & thought provoking

    After my ultra marathon challenge last week I literally sat on Sunday and binged The Secrets she Keeps. Have you watched The Cry ?

    'Curse of the Golden flower' is on Netflix. It's set in ancient China, and is one of the most beautifully filmed movies I've ever seen, with amazing sets and beautiful colours. The story is mostly about the secrets and goings on in a royal palace. There's also plenty of action with amazing battle scenes and hundreds of extras. If you can handle it being subtitled, it's well worth a watch.

    I'm also catching up with 'Peaky Blinders' and watching the repeats of 'Broadchurch' .

    I love that film, the sets & costumes are stunning! Definitely something I will watch again (add to my list!) as I haven't seen it for ages but have watched Hero & House of Flying Daggers (also directed by Zhang Yimou) again recently. I love the choreography in these films, so amazing & beautiful to watch

    On E4? I’ve been watching them too. I have them on dvd but there’s something wonderful about having to wait for each episode.

    I’m intrigued to see whether a bit I know was cut from the dvd will be shown. A bit where she kicks someone in the balls and the other man says “no not those orbs”. It’s part of the Andrew/ Warren/ Jonathon storyline in series 6. I wonder why it was cut.

    Ah. Must admit that the adverts are annoying, perhaps I should get prime but I have netflix and don’t get post to my house so have always thought prime would be a waste of money.

    It’s funny how the actors look so young, must be weird for them having a permanent reminder.

    The Buffy box set is on 4od too (which is free although there is short adverts but not as long as the live TV ones). I love BTVS and have just finished my rewatch and think I'm gonna go on to watch Angel since I've never watched the whole series.

    I've also been watching Spaced which has come on netflix, cannot believe I haven't seen this before, it's so good!
