2016 in Review: TV, Film, and Music (2)

Second in my roundup of 2016 is TV, film, and music.

TV Shows

The Great British Bakeoff

  • The world seemed to come crashing down when it was announced that the Bakeoff would be moving from the BBC after this series, provoking outrage across the nation. This series was another fantastic one, with a great group of bakers!


  • Gorgeous Cornish landscapes, what could be better? Perfect Sunday night TV.

Call The Midwife 

  • This is always an enjoyable distraction from the harshness of winter and this series didn’t disappoint. Already looking forward to next year’s series!


  • A brand new Doctor Who spin off written by YA author Patrick Ness was extremely welcome this year, and I adored this series, with it’s fantastic, talented cast.

The Crown

  • I love the Royal family and twentieth-century history, so this was a perfect combination – a lush production, and addictive.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life 

  • Another Netflix series and this one was long anticipated! Four addictive episodes that I couldn’t stop watching.

Olympics, Wimbledon, and the Davis Cup

  • This was a super year for sport and there are too many highlights to name! Of course, Murray ending the year as Number One, winning Wimbledon and Olympic Gold are up there – as well as many other wonderful Team GB moments.


Captain America: Civil War

  • Always love a bit of Captain America – this didn’t disappoint. Team Cap all the way…

Bridget Jones’s Baby

  • A great and very funny follow-up to Bridget Jones.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

  • One of the most anticipated things of the year for me and it didn’t disappoint. For more on Fantastic Beasts, head over to SpeakBeasty and MuggleNet!

I’m not very good at going to the cinema, especially in the summer so here are some of the things i missed that I’ll have to catch up on sometime.

What I missed: Doctor Strange, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Swallows and Amazons



  • A new Busted album after twelve years? Who would have thought!

James Bay

  • One I missed before, but fell in love with Chaos and the Calm this year.


  • Yes, I missed this one too, but I finally caught up and now get all the references (also it’s awesome).

Amanda Palmer

  • Finally became a Patreon subscriber this year and fell in love with Amanda’s solo music. She recently released a piano version of Theater is Evil.

Tom Chaplin

  • Tom’s first solo album was released this year, and it’s beautiful!

Phew – that’s it. What are your film, TV, and music highlights of the year?
