Here at RadioTimes.com we spend our week devouring all the TV there is on offer and sharing our recommendations with you, our wonderful reader.
But what did YOU, the viewing public, have to say about this week’s biggest TV news stories and shows?
From Piers Morgan’s interview with Donald Trump to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor revival, Silent Witness’ shocking care home storyline to a seriously long wait for Sherlock’s return to TV screens , here’s what got you talking in the past seven days…
You kicked off the week by kicking off about Piers Morgan’s interview with Donald Trump
"Feel like I’ve just watched two people engaging in foreplay and now I need to bleach my eyes and scrub my skin off…"
“It was cringe-worthy” wrote David Thomson on Facebook of Morgan’s exclusive sit-down with the President of The United States at Davos. “The most sycophantic interview I have ever lived through,” wrote Collins Chidimuro, “and I grew up on a diet of Robert Mugabe interviews with the Zimbabwe state broadcaster. Shameful.”
“They just seemed to be kissing each other’s behinds,” noted John Wyres-Smith.
88% of readers said Morgan was too soft on the US President, but the Good Morning Britain presenter had his supporters too!
A new clip was released by Tennant’s wife Georgia (who appeared in the series as the Tenth Doctor’s “daughter” Jenny) showing the Scottish actor returning to his most famous role for a special occasion, namely the emigration of old friend, Gary Russell, to Australia in 2013.
However, 68% of more than 3,000 readers polled by RadioTimes.com said they felt the storyline worked.
“It was very emotional and heart wrenching,” wrote Laura Seaman on Facebook, “but sadly things like that do go on. I think it’s good that it’s been brought to the attention of people; rather than brushed under the carpet.”
“I thought it was a powerful and brilliantly acted storyline” wrote Cheryl Boxall. “It was refreshing to see a script written from the point of view of people with disabilities rather than just our view of how disabled people react.”
And by the time the second part of the episode had aired on Tuesday, there was a LOT of praise for the series. “Well done Silent Witness for broaching this subject” wrote Lindsey McGibbon. “Working in the care sector it both shocked and moved me. Liz Carr was brilliant! Best episode of the series so far!”
The 41-year-old dancer, who has starred in every single series of Strictly, made a tearful appearance on ITV’s Lorraine to reveal that he will be absent when the BBC contest returns this autumn, after finding out at the end of last week that bosses had “made an editorial decision not to have me back on the show”.
“This is so unfair” wrote Sarah Burgess, who said Cole ” gives the show a little bit of an edge when he defends his celebrity partner” and urged the BBC to reverse the decision.
Brendan Cole is Mr Strictly……bad decision BBC the show will not be the same without him 😡 #StrictlyComeDancing
