Our TV reception has been a bit rubbish recently, at least on ITV and Channel 4, so I did a bit of digging to see what might be wrong. Apparently there has been work going on on the Emley Moor transmitter for a couple of weeks but we've only just noticed which shows how little we watch those channels.

In fact, there are only a handful of things that I make an effort to watch - Doctor Who obviously, and Ashes to Ashes (although that is more for the back story and the 80s music, rather than the lacklustre plots), a handful of comedy shows, and occasional science documentaries on BBC4 and that's about it.

After forgetting to set the recording for Doctor Who, we ended up watching it via iPlayer on the Wii. Apart from a slight bit of pixellation in places it was perfectly watchable and even better, it didn't have the ridiculous animated Graham Norton trailer plastered over the final scene. The BBC schedulers really do seem to treat the programmes as an annoying interruption to their trails, promos and whizzy on-screen graphics.

In games news, I picked up Dizzy Pad as a freebie Friday deal last week and I'm enjoying it. It's a simple one button game of jumping your froglet from one spinning lily pad to the next without dropping in the water, but impeccably presented with charming music and some nice graphical touches such as ripples on the surface of the water when you land. Perfect for a spot of casual gaming.

In OU news, I've submished my TMA 04s for both M150 and T175, so hurrah for that. Just the ECAs to do now for the end of May, and I need to start thinking about my next course. Hmmmm.
