Yay! (TV Watch)

Yay for Val McDermid, the star of this year’s Christmas University Challenge. Wasn’t she great? I really must read her books.

Rather less Yay for To Walk Alone, the programme about the Brontës which I was looking forward to. I thought two hours rather long and only lasted one. Shot in the dark and inaudible apart from Jonathan Pryce, who is a real Actor. I never have liked Charlotte Brontë but if I’d previously had a favourable view, this programme would have changed it. OK, her life wasn’t a bundle of laughs but that grim face (plus the fact that I couldn’t understand a word she said)! Didn’t they ever smile?
