As November settles in with her long-dark evenings, we now have to come inside from playing earlier that perfect.
And so we turn to some TV and Radio for entertainment.
(sitting cosily wrapped with a good book sends me off to sleep far too early!)
On Sunday evening, we watched the first offering of the new
Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Rachael Weiss
Here's the official synopsis:
"What happens when spies grow older in a post-9/11 world? Sixty-something MI-5 agent Johnny Worricker has amassed an impressive art collection, an amicable collection of ex-wives, and a droll, unflappable relationship with the work he enjoys alongside his boss and best friend, MI5 chief Benedict Baron. But when Benedict brings to light damning evidence of British complicity with illegal American torture operations, it falls to Johnny to do the right thing. And the right thing, in this morally ambiguous new era, is unclear — as unclear as the motives of Johnny's neighbor, Nancy, who draws Johnny in with her sad beauty and a secret of her own."
It was excellent. British TV at its best.
Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson star in
"Waiter, I'll take the nostalgia special with a side of recrimination and finish with regret, for a lunch that celebrates love and ambition with poignancy, humor, and affection."
I can't wait!
I think I'm getting the hang of November.
