  1. Series 16: All Episode Discussion

    Danny's refusal to do ITT after being voted off and also to appear at the final doesn't put hi m in a great light.
  2. S09.E10: The Final

    I think the technicals help the bakers to bond seeing as they're all in the same boat.
  3. S11.06: Demons Of The Punjab

    I thought this one was depressing.
  4. Series 16: All Episode Discussion

    There wasn't anything to support the allegations in the way Danny and Amy comported themselves last night or tonight imo. Who knows?
  5. S09.E10: The Final

    Rain and cold. No1 It's a core part of the challenges the bakers face.
  6. Series 16: All Episode Discussion

    This week I thought Graeme was very much drunk uncle at the wedding, but Joe was my least favourite. I predict that the danceoff will be Graeme versus Danny (I thought Danny was actually really good, but bad comments, some dodgy press during the week and early placement will all affect his vote), with Graeme reaching the end of the road. Ashley's dance was stunning, but it didn't really feel like it should be on this show.

  8. All Episodes Talk: You're Fired!

    One of the funniest episodes ever. I thought Manageair’s presentation was terrible ... until I saw the other one. jet pop was misconceived in every possible way, but those were mostly laid bare in the show. A lot of people accusing one another of being unprofessional in rather snide ways. Kayode is not remotely as good a speaker as he thinks he is. Kurran was completely useless as a leader. Sabrina was not much better in her team, and was lucky they “won” (more accurately failed less spectacularly).
  9. S11.E05: The Tsuranga Conundrum

    The alien was kind of cute. I half expected that when baby, er, Avocado's name was revealed, the doctor would tell us that he grows up to become somebody important in history.

    Dr Ranj was so lovely, I’m sad to see him go, but he was one of the poorest dancers left.
  11. Series 16: All Episode Discussion

    A lot of people raised their game this week. Ashley was amazing. Possibly in trouble, Dr Ranj, Kate, maybe Charles or Danny. We could be in for a shock.

    the problem for the losing team was IMO that Jackie designed a shoe for herself rather than a wider market. I thought it looked ugly and uncomfortable. The trainer was a bit cutesy with the bow. I note than no one mentioned comfort.
  13. S09.E10: The Final

    Non of the showstopper slooked great (def not a good idea for Kim Joy to say brightly she was trying to make her ruins look mouldy ;) )I think in the end it was all about flavour.

    Graeme and Dr Ranj are probably the worst dancers still in, but they both have engaging personalities so I'll be sorry when the inevitable occurs. I was surprised Charles escaped the B2 this week, especially with that awful wig. Stacey OTOH looked better in the wig than she does au naturel. I didn't particularly like Faye's dance but she performed it well. Ashley was excellent imo, but I hated the costuming.
  15. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    I was talking to an elderly lady the other day in a cafe, she must have been 80or so, and she’s been a Doctor AWho fan since it started . she stopped watching during the Peter Capaldi era bc she struggled with his accent, but likes the new doctor.
