Cumberhats: redux
Parade's End: it's a big, periody, costumey thing, and by thunder it gives old Benylin Cummerbund of this parish the chance to do what he does best: wear a hat.

DVD weekly: spies, trailer trash and Cumberbitches
This week's DVD releases are so bloody good, I forgot to stop watching them and missed my deadline. And the clocks went forward which, like, confused me.

Or it's "elementary", or something. What did Sherlock Holmes used to say before it was all about Robert Downey Jr wearing dresses? Look, just click this for a Sherlock trailer and forget I said anything.
