    TV review: The Cockfields, Gold

    I've only seen the first episode though - maybe everything goes pear-shaped in the next two parts. I'll certainly be watching to find out.

    TV review: The Cockfields, episode three, Gold

    This has been a real gem. It's a shame it is only a trilogy, but in those three episodes we have really got to know the Cockfield clan. Yes, they might be a bunch of Isle of Wight oddballs, but they are - mostly - a bunch of very sympathetic, engaging Isle of Wight oddballs.
