Was thinking about it but three part dramas are normally rubbish. Might give it a go now then

There was a lot of complaints about it on the radio today saying it was too graphic, ripping someone's guts out whilst still alive, full frontal of a woman etc.

That's how it was in 1604/1605, they were ruthless.

Absolutely riveting i thought. And as for the poor snowflakes......they can always switch off.

We watched all three episodes back to back on iPlayer/itv hub or whatever.
Riveting with an authentic feel to it.
As a follow up bbc4 had a program last night about QE1's spy network which backed up a lot of the stuff in Gunpowder.
coppo and coppo like this.

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.
