Dr Who and Matt Smith returned to the BBC this Saturday. Welcome back!

For those who watched it, please feel free to comment below. I have Sky Plused it and I will watch it as soon as I am able.

Matt Smith is for me, THE best Doctor of all time - and he more than deserves his BAFTA nomination - Go Matt Go!

Rocket To The Moon

I went to see "ROCKET TO THE MOON" at The National Theatre last night. Wasn't sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed it. It was funny, and quite emotional, and the cast were very good.

I booked to see this originally because Keeley Hawes and Joseph Millson are in it. Over the years I've enjoyed watching these wonderful actors in a variety of roles, and everything they do is always very watchable.  So them being in the same play was reason enough to go see it. I'm so glad I did. 

Oh and Joseph Millson is gorgeous.
