You seem to be keen to accuse people of misrepresenting. I'm not misrepresenting anything - I gave Blade Runner as an example of one of the first films that was a relative flop at the cinemas but...

I'm not saying he's not a decent actor (most of the Carry On actors were highly trained) but like most of the rest of them, he ended up in very stereotyped roles and in a sort of comfort zone. He...

I was very surprised (pleasantly, I might add) that they cast a codger as old as Capaldi, considering Russell T Davies once said:

It's 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for 9 months of the year. If we...

I'd say you sum it up rather well. Sadly, Matthew Wright didn't have the guts to say it to her face.

It would have been a better commercial move for him, Parton being a much bigger star in America. Also, when it was written, it was apparently more of a country song than what it ended up as.

If the clips were from things like Wogan she would probably have been required to mime on those shows. I think Bowie famously threw a huff on Wogan after he found out he wasn't performing live.

Yes, and there are actors who've made pretty much an entire career out of playing support to "stars". Denholm Elliott springs to mind and he ended up with a CBE and in Hollywood movies.

Shobna Gulati: I'm leaving Britain because no one's given me a lead part on UK TV

Shobna made this shock revelation on yesterday's "Wright Stuff". She said, and I quote:

"I have to say I'm 48 years old and have I had a lead part in a drama yet on British television? No. With 25...

I don't agree with that. Not many Carry On/Doctor light comedy actors got a knighthood, did they? They didn't hand them out like sweets in those days. It wasn't so devalued.

It's nice to see all the well-wishers, but he's not going to get much better at his age, is he?

He's done well to outlive pretty much all of his contemporaries.

You should have listened to sound clips before purchasing.

It's funny, everyone compared Oasis to The Beatles and I never thought they sounded anything like them. Everyone hears things differently.

Drama did move at a slower pace then, there was more dialogue, longer scenes and fewer camera cuts.
