Jingle this.

Doc Martin, season 7, with Martin Clunes.  They should stop now. The last two seasons were messy, but they managed to end the season with something like a natural ending, that feels complete.

The Eternal World by Christopher Farnsworth.  The author is growing up a little bit. The storyline isn't as fluffy, as silly as the vampire series.  I really enjoyed this, and have suggested it to two coworkers.

The Carrot Purple: and other curious stories of the food we eat by Joel S. Denker.  I always feel especially betrayed when I specifically request a book for purchase and then it fails to live up to the hype. 

This book has quite a bit of interesting information, but only in tiny bits.  It includes way too many fruits and vegetables, and so each only gets one and a half to two pages, sometimes trailing a tiny bit into a third page at the very most.  It makes the information less memorable, actually, because it has no room to go into why those things happened.  There isn't enough time to become engrossed in the story of, say, the avocado, before it's on to something else.

I think I still need to watch the last two seasons of Doc Martin. The baby was something of a shark jumper for me personally.

I concur. I got pretty sick of Louisa not being able to make up her mind. I liked the last season, though,assuming it remains the last season.
