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

It’s been 40 years since Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’ debuted in ‘Part One’ of ‘Castrovalva’ on the 4th of January 1982.

Thankfully I was pretty lucky to see ‘The Larkins at Christmas’ on a repeat channel for ITV1. Continue reading

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

‘The Larkins’ is a 2021 TV adaptation of the H. E. Bates novel ‘The Darling Buds of May’.
