Was David Mitchell any good? I'll perhaps record it on tomorrows repeat.

I was looking forward to that one, but I must say I was quite disappointed there did'nt seem to be a lot of content, there were'nt any ooh haa moments.

I'm curious about where his Mitchells are from. Lyndon has Mitchells in the West Midlands. Common name though.
I wonder how many celebs they look at and cast aside because their story won't make good tele?

Michael Parkinson was one - apparently they did quite a lot of research on him but then decided his family wasn't interesting enough.

I didn't watch all of David Mitchell, it was on the tv, but I was reading a book as well, it didn't hold my attention---unlike Kate Humble.

How good was that last night--what a shock for those people in Australia--and what a ******* he was :wink:

Recorded and not yet watched. Also not watched David Mitchell yet. Maybe this evening, I don't think we have any plans.

When you eventually get to watch it you will enjoy.

What can I say! We have watched David Mitchell and Kim Cattrell this morning.
I thought David Mitchells was very dull really. One I would have thrown on the cutting room floor.

Kim Cattrell on the other hand - how interesting was that! What a pig!! I thought the 3 girls at the end took the news extremely well. I would like to have seen the follow up trip to Australia. Nothing in this months WDYTYA mag. Better ask m-in-law to check the back issues in case I missed it! I don't read the articles on the presenters! I want to read hers though now.

Can you imagine how the Australian family must have felt finding all that out about him. I feel really sorry for them, wonder how they were approached to be told it was in a TV programme.

Martin Freeman tonight. I saw a clip last night and it looks like he is tracing a military history.
Will record it.

It's the last one, doesn't the series go quickly?

Watched Martin Freeman this morning. It left me shouting at the TV.
One bit that really frustrated me was when he couldn't find the marriage for his Gt Grandparents but the researcher shows up having found Gt Grandfathers birth 50+years before the birth of Martins grandfather with no evidence to support how she reached the conclusion that it was the Richard William they were interested in.

I think the best episode they have ever done was, without doubt, Kim Cattrell.
