TV Review – ‘Call the Midwife’, Christmas Special 2022

SPOILERS ALERT!!!

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

On Christmas Day, I saw the latest ‘Call the Midwife’ Christmas Special on BBC One. I enjoyed seeing the Christmas Special and I’m sure I’ll be seeing Series 12 in the New Year. Mind you, I’m wondering if the series is getting a little tired by this point, especially when it’s being going on for a long time. 😐 Continue reading

DVD review – ‘Becoming Jane’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

So, I was planning to do an updated review on the 2019 film ‘Little Women’ and perhaps do a quick review on the 1994 film adaptation. Sadly, that hasn’t come about with things getting in the way. Thankfully, I can make up for that by doing an in-depth review on the biographical drama film ‘Becoming Jane’, focusing on the early life of Jane Austen. Continue reading

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

Here’s my latest review on the 1987 film adaptation of ‘Little Dorrit’, based on the novel by Charles Dickens. The 1987 film adaptation of ‘Little Dorrit’ is a two-part film. Each part is about 3 hours long, which makes this a 6-hour film altogether. You’ll probably want to spend two days watching this particular film. 🙂 Continue reading

Movie Review – ‘Downton Abbey: A New Era’

SPOILERS ALERT!!!

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

Having seen the TV series on Blu-ray and revisited the first film on Blu-ray, I’ve at last seen the second ‘Downton Abbey’ film ‘A New Era’ on the big screen! In fact, I’ve seen the second ‘Downton Abbey’ movie twice at the cinema! In my opinion, I found the second film better than the first film. 🙂 Continue reading
