Great Pottery Throw Down - BBC 2

    Yeah, seemed a bit low key, but winner was deserving. Nice to see the others back, I’d forgotten most of them!

    I never cease to be amazed by how quickly I forget early-exit contestants in these programmes - I clearly have the memory retention power of a gnat!!

    I have to say I loved this series - no mad wacky characters taking over (maybe the Colombian lady might qualify under that banner but even she was very likeable), they all genuinely seemed to be so friendly and supportive of each other, all seemed to be very talented.

    I was really rooting for Caitlin, she was so young and you could just see her confidence blossoming from week to week.

    Early on i had thought James was the man to beat - but then over the weeks Lois' insane decorative talents started to become obvious - so in the final, as long as she built something that didn't actually fall apart, I think she was always going to be a nailed-on a winner.

    I had never heard of those pyramid vases, and hers was the only one which was improved by the addition of the flowers IMO, the other two (in the glimpses we got) the flowers seemed to clash with the shape/decoration somehow.

    I just loved John, his mind would work very much like mine rather than Lois' (I don't have a creative bone in my body, but I love square lines, and planning, and order) - he was so genuinely amazed and surprised at getting through each week, it was just charming!

    I think James, on a different day, maybe with a different sort of a make, might have pipped Lois - but I have no argument with the winner this time.

    Really loved the series, I'll miss it now.

    "Sort your life out" that aired Wednesday at 9 finished last week.....well there was something else on last night anyway. So I expect next week or so
