Our picks of the week – Blaine says, “My pick of the week of what I’ve seen is “Arsenic and Old Lace,” while “Doctor Who Series Five” is also a must-have.” Alex says, “Unfortunately, I haven’t seen Doctor Who Series 5 yet, but it is going into my Netflix queue. However I have seen some of season 1 of Sherlock, and was very impressed, and reccomend that wholeheartedly.”
