That Day We reach the time when I assess how well I predicted the ups and downs of the year and look forward to the next. Here we go again:
The Beatles are added to Spotify.
There it was and not just Spotify, all streaming services. On Christmas Day we opened our presents while listening to the 1 compilation. One Mark.
Taylor Swift does Glastonbury.
No, although there was much fevered speculation when the Foo Fighters had to understandably pull out, because she was in the country. She didn't but clearly not for the reasons Ed Sheeran suggests since she later featured at the BST festival in Hyde Park and at Radio 1's Big Weekend. No marks.
Greens overtake the LibDems in Parliament.
No, but close, the LibDems being demolished at the General Election. No marks.
The next series of Doctor Who is better than the last one.
Entirely subjective but I think it was. I certainly enjoyed it more and many of my reviews were pretty upbeat. One mark.
Spider-man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Which was seemingly on the cards after the Sony hack but I didn't think would actually happen. Another reboot, but bravely keeping him a teenager and in high school so different enough to be interesting. One mark.
Three out of Five, which isn't bad at all.
Right then, for next year:
The Mutya Keisha Siobhan album is finally released.
Arden Shakespeare announces Arden of Faversham.
Moffat and Capaldi leaving Doctor Who at the end of series ten.
Film streaming services announce deals which allow for studio back catalogues to be available in greater depth and for longer ala music.
Major scandal leads to early UK general election.
