Edge-of-the-seat first episode of latest series of “Line of Duty” with working mother Thandie Newton.
Delightful, laugh-a-minute androgynous Twelfth Night at The National with Tamsin Greig starring as Mrs.Danvers-like Malvolia and Doon McKichan’s tuneful Feste.
Loved Andrew Scott’s edgy Scandi-influenced Hamlet at The Almeida. Peter Wight a wonderful Polonius. Great design Hildegard Bechtler. Gertrude/Hamlet scene a triumph.
Two breath-taking Edward Hoppers at The Royal Academy. Also Grant Wood a new discovery for us.
Maternity leave will never be the same again thanks to Morven Christie and Vicky McClure slogging it out in a Glaswegian architect’s – The Replacement. Can’t wait for final episode.
Elisabeth Leonskaja playing Shostakovich at LSO St Luke’s
Hans Holbein portraits of two Thomases – More and Cromwell partnered at The Frick Collection.
Thanksgiving Hospitality in Boston.
Spine-tingling storytelling in this second series of The Missing.
Hugely enjoyable The Beatles Eight Days a Week – the touring years.
Coffee at our nearby museum The Geffrye with its dedication to “the middling sort” and a wander round its chronologically-arranged gardens.
We loved the Goya portraits exhibition at the National Gallery. How many other artists gave their doctor a portrait of themselves being treated as a thank you?
Surely an Oscar nomination for the unspellable-unless-you-check-first Saiorse Ronan in the beautiful and simple Brooklyn?
For supper before the Almeida. For supper anytime, actually. Oldroyd is an ace addition to Angel’s plethora of restaurants. Small, cheerful, and great food. We had three desserts between the two of us.
