Responsible Child

Whilst turning on BBC iPlayer to catch up wit His Dark Materials I saw this on the front page and it instantly caught my attention as a interesting thing to watch.

Based on a true story and asking the question on whether a child as young as 10 can understand what it means to commit murder it is a interesting look at how our courts work when the youngest offenders in our country are held to the same standards as adults.

The Musketeers : The Return

The reason this review is so late is that I thought we had a two week break and completely missed the episode. It wasn’t until I randomly went on iPlayer to look for something else that I realised I’d missed a episode.

I’m still completely amazed that they thought it was a good idea to have two gaps in between the last three episodes and it really made Emilie stand out, and in a bad way too, so we’ll have to see if they can pick the series back up again.
