Another busy weekend coming up for me – I really must arrange one where I just lie around reading books – so I’ll leave you with a quick trio!
1.) The blog post – it’s been ages since I read a Richmal Crompton book, and Leadon Hill isn’t one of the 26 I have read (not including the William series), but Claire’s review has whetted my appetite for more.
2.) The link – I watched Twenty-Twelve long after everyone else (the BBC sitcom about a committee preparing for the Olympics), but I’m on board with W1A. It’s a sort-of sequel, with Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Stevenson reprising their roles, set at the BBC – Bonneville’s character has become ‘Head of Values’. It’s just as brilliantly believable as before, with lots of verbal ticks (tics?) offering the most comedy. Watch here on iPlayer, if you can.
3.) The poll results – a slight change from the usual miscellany! Thank you for so many results; I found it really interesting to see how the different Penelopes fared (and loved the comment from Jill, on the poll, that her favourite was Penelope!) The results are above – so far, anyway; the poll is still open – and I will report back on The Pumpkin Eater when I’ve finished it.
