I’m just gonna echo all the comments about Freddie. Good on him! Also, I’ve finally caught up on Doctor Who and I don’t think I can stand the three week wait for the Christmas special (The time between then and April will be even worse…). And Pooky Quesnel…could she have a more awesome name???

Love this segment! Tiana is certainly one sexy gal – hope she looked like this when she and George got married. Julie Walters looks stunning as usual and so sophisticated! Good job Rosi!
