    Titanic

    ★★★

    I always thought I'd seen this, but in actual fact I only ever caught the first or last third and missed the entire middle section.

    The need to add fictional characters and subplots to the Titanic story has never sat right with me. It's so unneeded as the story itself is fascinating.

    Steven Moffatt should just not be given any more opportunities. Shite at writing Doctor Who. Ended up being shite at writing Sherlock. Looking back at Jekyll, he was shite at that. Time to call it a day now I think.

    Cringeworthy. Utterly cringeworthy, and an insult.
