2x06 The Perfect Christmas [season finale; 2nd watch]

Happened to be watching BBC One when this began and it's addictively, un-turn-off-able-ly good. And rather than an out-of-season Christmas special making me feel it was stupid to air it, I genuinely feel a bit Christmassy now. Impressive.

There are some quarters keen to dismiss the entire show, and sometimes you begin to wonder if they might be right with some of their criticisms... but then you happen across just one episode and immediately recall just how bloody good it is. So sod them all. Can't wait for the third series, which surely must be arriving soon.

[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Skyfall Biggest Ever First-Week Box Office Earner In The UK
by Dave Golder (from SFX)

Skyfall has now taken an extraordinary £37.2 million in its opening week, overtaking Deathly Hallows Part 2 to secure the biggest seven day gross of all time in UK box office history.

Plus a list of the current UK top ten highest grossers. Skyfall's currently 39th, but only £20m from overtaking Star Wars Episode I and cracking the top ten.
