New case, new people, new places, but still feels the same!

Hi, it has been some time since I have made this kind of post. Little over two years in fact. Well it’s Monday, and that means Broadchurch-day!

CAN CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

The most dysfunctional detective duo is back, and the grumpy DI Hardy is back in charge!

As with the series 3 start, the dynamic feels new but still the same… if you can understand me. Series 2 ended with a surprising verdict and revelation about another case.

Now it has been three years, and we are or I should say Hardy and Miller is back on a new case… this time not a murder, but a sexual attack.

Victim: Trish Winterman

Suspect: an unknown male

We are back to who dunnit… Trish was attacked by an unknown man or is he someone she knows, now that we find out that she was attacked at her friend’s birthday party. We (and Hardy & Miller) are left with a lot of questions and not a lot of answers as of yet!

This time we meet some new people, but the people in Broadchurch still pop up – like the Lattimers… Beth is counseling, and she is now connected to Trish because she is the counselor to Trish’s case, and Mark is still not over the death of Danny… he really has a hard time moving on, and maybe (SPOILER ALERT) that’s why Beth and Mark is not living together.

That’s Broadchurch for you even though it’s new and a new case there is still of the old lurking under the surface… but also there is some new strange people coming in – really Trish’s friends acts weird when they get the news about an attack at the party… not acting like friends, but rather like people with something to hide.

Verdict: 4/6 stars

Moriarty quote of the day – A Nativity play by Moriarty

Ah! Isn’t that sweet? I wrote my own version of the Nativity when I was a child. The Hungry Donkey. It was a bit gory, but if you’re going to put a baby in a manger, you’re asking for trouble.

– Jim Moriarty, The Final Problem

Yes, I know it has long, too long in fact, but I haven’t had the time because a lot of things happening. But now I thought I would post quotes from Sherlock series 4, starting with my favourite villain Moriarty from the last episode.

I may be one of the few people that actually loved series 4, yes it’s not as good as some parts of the other series. But for me it has it’s merits, I actually loved junky Sherlock – we all know that in the books the great detective has a problem with drugs… even some argue over was it cocaine or opium, but I will not get into that.

That’s all for now, but when I found another great quote from Sherlock, I’ll promise to post.

Hardy and Miller are back!

david-tennant-and-olivia-colman-580702I’m so happy to announce that the brilliant tvseries Broadchurch is back for a 3rd series in February and this time it has nothing to do with series 1 and 2.

Can’t wait and I think I will just use the rest of January reliving the brilliant 2 series and the great detective work by the most dysfunctional copper duo I have seen I LOVE IT!!!

To read more about series 3 read this article Broadchurch series 3. It has everything about what the theme is for this series, and introducing some new characters.

Sherlock goes Shakespeare!

Well as many of you Sherlock fans out might know Sherlock is back on telly, but I feel that Benedict have forgot he’s not on The Hollow Crown… in the second episode The Lying Detective Sherlock goes all Henry the fifth in 221B.s_s4_e2_0822

Set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide! Hold hard the breath and build up every spirit to his full height! On! On, you noblest English whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof! And you, good yeoman, Whose limbs were made in England, show us here the mettle of your pasture.
Which I doubt not for there is none of you here so mean and base that hath not noble lustre in your eyes! I see you standing like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start! The game’s afoot.

Well it also proves that Doyle borrowed a phrase from the great Bard – with iconic the game’s afoot phrase.

Okay I have a last thing I really want to get off my chest. If you have found me on social media you might have seen that I would have loved Tom Hiddleston to play Sherrinford, but that will not happen, so I was glad to hear the Henry the fifth speech… the closest thing to get Hiddles on Sherlock, but if there will ever be a series 5 please let Hiddleston have a part on there!

The Night Manager

635878802254689284-The-Night-Manager-AMCOkay now there’s not long till The Night Manager airs on BBC, and I have just started reading the book by John le Carré, and i must say that it’s great and I can’t wait to see the series!

SHERLOCKED Convention 2016

headerOkay today there were info about the SHERLOCKED convention in London – tickets value/sale, location and the first guest was also announced.

The guests are Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue, Mark Gatiss (who is the lead guest) and for the first time Natasha O’Keeffe (The Abominable Bride).

From the header photo on their website it is also going to have a touch from the Victorian times, and included in the weekend pass for adults there is a Victorian set photo.

I really want to go, but my budget is tight right now so I am going to wait a bit to see who else is going to attend before I buy ticket or a pass… so hopefully they will announce more guests soon so I can make my mind up whether or not to go.

I attended last years convention and it was the greatest three days of 2015!

You can read more info here: Sherlocked convention

There will also be a convention in the US, but more news is going to be released soon

John quote of the day – woman in a man’s world

S_TAB_0656

I AM observant in some ways, just as Holmes is quite blind in others…Amazing what one has to do to get ahead in a man’s world.


Yes Sherlock has some great lines in The Abominable Bride, but we should never John’s amazing lines and observation skills 🙂
