Death on the Tyne
This sequel to 2017's Murder on the Blackpool Express sadly isn't as good. They made a third one this year (Dial M For Middlesbrough), so I hope that's better.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

Normally things dip into a lull here just before Christmas as I wait to see what I've got on the big day, but between some sales and new releases I've actually ended up with a solid number of additions this week.

Number of titles in collection: 2,272 [up 4]
Of which DVDs: 1,124 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,148 [up 4]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 37 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 5,915 [up 9]
Number of films: 2,644 [up 7]
Number of TV episodes: 8,681 [no change]
Number of short films: 676 [up 1]

Next week's update will not only cover my Christmas haul, but will be a few days late so as to be fully end-of-year-y. See you then, faithful reader.
