    Case Histories music 2.0

    Following Sundays conclusion of the PBS Masterpiece presentation of the BBC’s Case Histories, starring Jason Isaacs, interest has continued to grow by the hour in the intriguing musical soundtrack.

    Doctor Who: The Ballad of Russell & Julie

    More hijinks from the brilliant Doctor Who cast and crew at the end of not only the David Tennant era, but the end of the Russell T. Davies and Exec Producer, Julie Gardner era.
