Mr Ejiofor wins best actor, Mr Hiddleston wins prettiest actor and Mr Hardy is cast in Peaky Bliders (squee). Mr Turner has also been cast in Poldark. Am I happy? Not sure, because while I appreciate Mr Turner, Poldark was My First Bonnet Drama, barely but fondly remembered, and naturally, one is anxious about remakes, given their dubious track record thus far. How faithful should a remake be?

Meanwhile, my most beloved Ripper Street has been taken up by Amazon (happy dance). I do so hope it's more of the show I loved, and not an excuse for extreme tampering and re-tooling (oh my, how conservative I am becoming in my viewing tastes).

Anyay, it's all go for the Brit Boys. Me, I've been off doing stuff (so sorry for not posting sooner).
