Did anybody watch Casanova on BBC3?

    I watched all of the series and found it extremely funny. Right from the off you knew it wasn't going to be a totally historical tale of a great lover's exploits throughout Europe. Although the story would seem to be close to the original. Pete O'Toole was his usual eloquent and almost sincere self, and David Tennant as the younger version had just the right amounts of humour, flippancy and emotion to play the part perfectly.

    If you missed it, it is starting on BBC1 at 9pm tonight

    Yeh! That'll please the missus, we missed the first one (or possibly two) but they were very good (though bit of a sad ending and they skipped over the death of the man-servant which was a bit sad). almost seemed that they should have had an extra episdoe in there. Still very good though.

    According to the listings in my paper, it's the new series of "Hustle" starting tonight! Are you sure it isn't next Monday or something like that?
