MasterChef 2015

March 14th, 2015

New series of MasterChef, new glasses for Gregg Wallace.  If you’re a fan try the Black Eyewear ‘Lester‘ or ‘Pepper‘.

Week 1 contestant Tony has already impressed and we think he could go all the way, maybe it’s the specs?  They are very similar to the classic Anglo American 406 seen here.

Another Series of Call the Midwife Ends

March 13th, 2015

Yet another series of Call the Midwife ended last week.  Miranda Hart appeared in a few episodes as a bespectacled ‘Chummy’ but we hope to see more of her next time.

Chummy is still wearing enduringly practical metal NHS panto spectacles.  Is it just us or are they getting bigger?
