I’ve just reviewed Series 7 as well as the 1990 Christmas Special called ‘Brotherly Love’. It hasn’t been a great season, but I enjoyed it. 🙂 Continue reading

DVD review – ‘Fantastic Four’ (2015)

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

I like the Fantastic Four as a Marvel superhero team. I enjoyed reading the 1960s comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby; have enjoyed seeing episodes of their 1990s TV show and love the 2005/2007 movies starring the Fantastic Four. I know not many people will agree with me on that front regarding the 2005/2007 films, but I consider them to be very decent movie adaptations of those 1960s comics. 😀 Continue reading

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

We’ve come to the end of Series 9 of ‘Call the Midwife’! I’ve enjoyed this season very much this year.

So, after all the variety we’ve had in Series 12 and the mixed feelings I’ve had about each episode so far, it’s time for the season finale ‘Ascension of the Cybermen’/’The Timeless Children’ by Chris Chibnall.

But I enjoyed the seventh episode of Series 9 of ‘Call the Midwife’ very much as it was gripping. Continue reading
