Monday night's back to being quiz night - University Challenge and Only Connect. Though I must admit I find the teams on the latter almost invariably odd (and not in a good way), and VCM to be borderline unbearable.

I enjoyed that when it
Bangkok Hilton - an old Aussie mini-series with Nicole Kidman, Denholm Elliott and Hugo Weaving. Dated but enjoyable, though the soundtrack seems to come from a poorly-aligned VHS tape...
I enjoyed that when it came out. Was this Kidman's first major role as her career seemed to take off after this?

Been watching Our Friends in The North. All about corruption in politics... nothing much has changed there :) Think this was the big break for Craig , Eccleston, McKee and Strong.

Agatha Christie's Poirot. Although the ending is quite predictable with all the possible suspects gathered in one room.

Not big into 'Whodunnit' type programmes or films, David Suchet is fabulous as Hercule Poirot. Very underrated actor.

Even though I'm not a TV addict, late evening weeknights is heaven for me.

At 10pm on Great TV there is The Persuaders!. Fun piece of retro TV. At 11pm on ITV3+1 they are showing repeats of Foyle's War.

The chemistry between Michael Kitchen (Foyle), Honeysuckle Weeks (Sam Stewart) and Anthony Howell (Paul Milner) is a joy to behold. Throw in shed loads of famous guest actors in every episode; the writing is sublime, the best Anthony Horowitz has produced IMO.
