I watched the latest episode last night and I am afraid I gave up on it. It all got too far fetched and confusing. Retching up black blood isn't my idea of entertainment!

I noted more Keeler. Too late for me so I will get it on catch up when I have seen whether there is another tonight. If so I'll save them and have them back to back. I remember all that so well and it's interesting to watch a modern take on it.

Watched the latest episode of Keeler and suspect it is very close to the truth. Even then I got the impression that she and Mandy were more sinned against than sinning. The role of the Astors and Cliveden was always minimised and I note that even in this modern version they are treading very carefully. I suspect the 'learned friends' have been keeping a close eye on things. Read Harold Nicholson's diaries for a flavour of just how important parties at Cliveden were in national government. Much policy was decided round the dinner table there before being exposed in the House. Harold Macmillan was a frequent guest.....

As an antidote to the increasingly ridiculous crime dramas on TV - did you see 'Bancroft'? Try Ch 4 tonight - '24hours in Police Custody'. Second part of a credible inquiry.
