When I first started it was called TV Jam but changed to include other forms of media. All my reviews are available below split into the years I did them. There were three tv shows I reviewed more than any other so to keep my ‘year’ pages tidy I set up separate pages for them. If you enjoyed my TV reviews I recommend you check out my Another Serving of Culture Jam on my blog to see further thoughts on the shows I reviewed. 2014 reviews of: Captain America: Winter Soldier Jonathan Creek The Lego Movie Line of Duty2012 reviews of: Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2012 Door’s Open Homeland Series 2 Last Tango In Halifax

Doctor Who It is difficult to sum up a show like Doctor Who in a few sentences. It is about a Time Lord called the Doctor who travels in time and space. So far 11 actors have played the Doctor thanks to his alien ability to regenerate. The reason the show is so fun is best described with the 11th’s Doctor’s self description of himself: “I’m a mad man in a blue box.”
