Thanks for doing these recaps James, enjoy reading them. Would be nice if it could go back to the times when there were a team of recappers and I would be prone to volunteering every now and then when I have time. :)

Not a problem, Tom. It’s good for me, cos I’ve just had little time to watch the series, so watching and recapping at the same time is great for me (I’m aware of what has happened, just haven’t seen the shows, thank goodness for modern technology.) ;) :) :D
