As I picked up the Radio Times for the TV schedule next week, my heart sank. Anything new and exciting on TV? Oh, nothing again. I know lockdown is like living in Groundhog Day, but surely TV is meant to be our saviour?
My eye hovered as I searched for a TV show to get my teeth into. But I look crestfallen. Have things really got so bad that we are forced to watch a repeat of a 50-year-old BBC drama from 1971 – Elizabeth R starring Glenda Jackson which starts on Wednesday on BBC4?
I’m sure it packs as many punches as Netflix’s The Crown, but I’m looking for something of the moment – another I May Destroy You or Normal People – or better still, Succession season three. But sadly, it’s been delayed like so much good TV due to the Covid pandemic.
