Grand Designs
10x02 Cotswolds: The Stealth House
I have often seen parts of Grand Designs -- mostly the ending -- but not usually enough to make it worth a mention. But this episode promised something unusual: an 'invisible' house, built underground below a barn that couldn't be demolished. It didn't live up to all expectations -- it was quite thoroughly visible on one side -- but the stuff with building under the barn was rather nifty.

How I Met Your Mother
5x18 Say Cheese
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

3x03 Goblin's Gold
Considering how daft and puerile this looked, I thought it was a largely entertaining episode. Nice to have a bit of lightness after the very heavy opener.

Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow
2x02 Sunderland
I would say it was a particularly good episode, but every episode seems to be particularly good. Which is nice, because 'undiscovered' stand-ups -- as Russell Howard's series proved week-in-week-out -- can be bloody awful.

Moffat On The Doctor Who Christmas Special And Season Six by Dave Golder
(from SFX)
Title says it all. Just a couple of snippets, hints and teases, mind, nothing astoundingly huge or new.
