IT WAS THE highlight of this series of Strictly, possibly of every Strictly: the moment the music stopped and Rose Ayling-Ellis and her partner Giovanni Pernice continued to dance in silence. As artistic statements go, it was a remarkably moving and dramatic way to make the point that a deaf person, such as Rose, doesn’t respond to music in the same way as most people do. The next day on Radio 4 the percussionist Evelyn Glennie, who is also deaf, applauded the routine and its impact, but made the point that not all deaf people live in a world of silence. Some hear some sound, others feel vibrations. Which begs the question: how does Rose manage to dance so beautifully? In our Secrets of Strictly feature starting on page 8 Rose reveals all.…

WHAT I’M WATCHING… JOE SWIFT ‘I’m watching The Lakes with Simon Reeve,” says the TV gardener. “It’s really engaging and Simon Reeve is a fine presenter.

life’s worth a grazed knee

WINTER IS UPON us, and with it the temptation to turn up the heating and let the family retire inside for the next three months. Well, I have one bit of very important seasonal advice for you – don’t do it! The scientific journals have been warning for more than a decade of the dangers of something called nature deficit disorder – in short, humans suffer emotionally and physically without clean air, natural light, and a connection to nature. As we learnt during lockdown, it’s never been more important to have outside adventures. That goes for everyone, but especially children. People have questioned the wisdom of me taking my tiny kids up mountains, canoeing, tree climbing, surfing and horse-riding, and of course there are risks. But surely the risks of not doing these…

WHAT WE WATCHED It was a period of big change on Doctor Who with star David Tennant calling time and Russell T Davies, who’d masterminded the show’s triumphant return, also heading for the exit. “There’s great danger and there are terrible deeds in this story, and it’s a sad time for the Doctor,” said Davies, “but the next minute, June Whitfield’s in there, in one of the funniest scenes David’s ever done.” But in sci-fi an ending is rarely as final as it seems: Tennant would go on to reappear as his incarnation of the Time Lord in 2013’s 50th anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor, while Davies is returning to the helm for the show’s upcoming 60th birthday in 2023. WHAT YOU SAID Stand-in presenters on big BBC shows had gone…

Strictly Come Dancing Saturday 6.40pm, Sunday 7.20pm BBC1 ‘I had a gut feeling Giovanni was going to be a good partner for me – I’m learning so much about dance and myself’ROSE AYLING-ELLIS STRICTLY DANCE PARTNERS Rose Ayling-Ellis & Giovanni Pernice The couple reveal how they dance to music that Rose can’t hear ROSE AYLING-ELLIS IS cradling a coffee cup backstage at Strictly Come Dancing during a break in rehearsals, sitting alongside her professional partner Giovanni Pernice, describing how she dances to music that she can’t hear – and it’s not, she explains, by feeling vibrations. “Some deaf people do, some don’t,” the 27-year-old says matter-of-factly. “But I’ve got too many things going on in my head. If I start thinking about the vibrations, I’m going to forget about my dance. What works best for me is…

unusual suspects

Landscapers Tuesday 9.00pm Sky Atlantic THE SWEET COUPLE we meet in a train station in the first episode of Landscapers don’t look like murderers in their nondescript mac and anorak. Instead Olivia Colman and David Thewlis look like a slightly confused couple worried about missing their train. But appearances can be deceptive. Colman and Thewlis play Susan and Chris Edwards, a real-life married couple who, after being convicted in 2014, are serving 25 years in jail for murder. In the four-parter, the couple from Dagenham are on the run, 15 years after shooting and burying Susan’s parents in their garden in suburban Nottinghamshire. They are impoverished but undying in their love – and not overly haunted by their crime. They are more obsessed with Old Hollywood and westerns in particular. It’s a…
