The nights are drawing in and I am beside myself with excitement, in only the way a mum consigned to the house owing to a sleeping toddler can be. Weeknight TV is about to get good. Really good. And I’ve got it all mapped out.
Guilty pleasure #1: the new series of Doc Martin starts tonight on ITV. Yipeee. One can fein interest for the glorious views of Cornwall, but we all know that’s a big fat lie.

And it doesn’t stop there – there’s Location Location Location on Thursdays too. Goodness knows what a psychologist would make of such viewing choices, but who cares. I suspect the supermarket might experience a (slight) surge in wine sales over the coming weeks…
