The hotly anticipated fifth series of Downton Abbey continues with the focus still firmly set on affairs of the heart.
Bigfoot, possibly (Picture: John Rodriguez) We might have managed to land a probe on a comet in 2014, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the human race has grown any smarter over the past year. Indeed, 2015 has kicked off with a slightly less scientific breakthrough – someone claims they have taken the clearest ever photo of […]

As I sat down to go through all the cinema releases I saw in 2014 I felt a sense of trepidation. After all 2013 was such a strong year, I feared that this top 10 cannot match one with gems such as Nebraska and Amour. But I needn’t have worried, as it looks to have […]

Ok, I don’t know Mick Jagger personally though he was kind enough to pose for this recent selfie and made my two kids very happy. (Thanks, Sir M, you’re a gent!) What I do know, from my own lifetime in the performing arts, is that he and other musicians understand time rather differently to the […]

Doughnut sale sounds much better than the diet club (Picture: imgur) Possibly the best (or worst) juxtaposition ever. A sign informing people that the popular Weight Watchers club has been cancelled was placed directly above an advert for a Krispy Kreme doughnut sale. The slimming classes were not on over a two week period due to […]
This is a pack of biscuits and not a set of instructions (Picture: Will Dean/Twitter) This isn’t an instruction, it’s actually the name of a snack.
