Mary Poppins (TV2, 6.30pm)
I haven’t seen Mary Poppins for YEARS, so I was very excited to see that TV2 are screening it tonight. It’s such a good movie for the family.

Downton Abbey encore screening (Prime, 8.40)
If you missed the Christmas double episode, make sure you watch it tonight, ahead of the new season starting on Thursday. The Crawleys host a lavish Christmas party, but tensions are high, as Bates is arrested and the family are concerned about Mary’s future.  Continue reading »
