Absolutely. Her character was what kept the plots grounded and made the comedy real. Without her Brittas simply wasn't credible. But you can't go back. Any attempt to do so will be doomed to fail. ...

I didn't mean to be patronising which is why I put similes at the end of that paragraph. I'm sorry that it read that way to you. The point was the very old or young are just as likely to find the...

Strangely enough old people and young children have genitalia too. I know this might seem odd to some. Old people would (mostly) remember what they used to do with their genitalia and children find...

The Doctor Who thing is something a lot of people say whether or not they actually did hide from it. I don't believe it myself. I was a child when Dr Who started but never found it that scary....

We saw the live show on July 3 and as a Python fan it was a fantastic experience. The first half of the show was a little flat but the second half was brilliant. Atmosphere in the O2 was wonderful....

To be fair this was intended to be a gift. Not the same as printing and framing your own photo. That doesn't excuse the ugliness of the frame design.

The left don't encourage immigration as such. They don't oppose it, which is rather different. It's got nothing to do with past colonial sins either (some of which were far from imaginary). I've...

It's not really surprising some people say they prefer American TV to British. Most of what's on US TV doesn't get shown here. So we are comparing the cream of American premium TV with all of British...

Why stop at radio commentators? TV commentators don't actually need to be there either. However they do go because they can present other material that must be sourced locally, interview players and...

Actually it is the BBC's money. It ceased to be your money when you paid the licence fee. Just as the money ITV spend, indirectly obtained from your purchases, ceased to be your money when you bought...

Yes and the bloke who said it worked in the court system too. Yet overall the stats show immigrants aren't over represented in crime rates. There will be hot spots in some areas of course. One...

Nonsense unless informing people of the factual statistical position is propaganda. Personal experience is not evidence of the situation as a whole. It's just the bit of life you experience. In some...

I wonder how many ITV "suits" went to Rio during the World Cup. Probably as many as went from the BBC, but as you said, we'll never know.

The thing is, it would be a bit blinkered for BBC and ITV...

I happen to think politicians need to be regularly bashed with satire. Especially whoever is in power at the time. MTW seems to be fairly even handed in how it attacks politicians.

Mock the Week can only be as good as the people they get on it. I don't agree it's been dumbed down as such. It just doesn't have Franky Boyle on it to give it those very edgy moments. That doesn't...

Irrelevant. She's not a token ethnic minority presenter. AFAIK she didn't replace a black presenter so why would a black presenter have to replace her? She was already employed by the BBC as a...

That doesn't explain ITV cancelling a +1 repeat of Benidorm which mentioned Rolf Harris and apologising for showing the episode at all.

The BBC is not responsible for the crimes of its employees.

They've got closure from the guilty verdicts. Time to move on. Erasing history is not necessary as well.

That isn't a highlights programme. It's a rerun in full of one of the two games. That's why it goes on that long.
