Single Handed

Quick note - I watched the first episode of Single Handed last Sunday on ITV, and I would recommend trying to catch it if you can. I thought it might be Horlicks-TV like Heartbeat or Ballykissangel, but actually it's a well written, desperately sad, crime drama set in contemporary Ireland.

The first episode a disgraced policeman comes back to work in his home town on the isolated west coast and finds his father and the local old boys have been wallowing in casual abuse and cruelty for decades, and expect him to go along with it. It was a bit Jacobean I thought.

I don't know what happens this week, but it's probably worth checking out - 9-11 tonight.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
