You review: Housewife, 49

Victoria Wood's first ITV drama for 25 years certainly pleased me. But what did you think?

I love 1996

I've been glued to the repeats of This Life. But will the one-off special next month live up to the original sex, drugs and Britpop cult?

You review: The Choir

The critics agree that Gareth Malone, my real-life maestro, is the magic ingredient in this hackneyed documentary formula. But what did you think?
