Have I Got News For You
58x10 (20/12/2019 edition) [season finale]
[Watch the it (again) on iPlayer.]

Vienna Blood
1x01 The Last Seance
I could offer comment, but I could just as easily point you to this (completely spoiler-filled) review from The Guardian. In short: bit predictable and formulaic with very little new (it owes a certain debt to Sherlock Holmes), but decently made and reasonably entertaining nonetheless.

Then, my last regular TV column of the year...

More (hopefully) next Sunday.
