It's rather depressing that France's response to this terrorist attack was to arrest a few dozen people for "hate speech". Thus, the Islamic extremists get what they want: censorship to prevent...

Probably both.

Since just over a year ago my package price has risen from 29pm to over 36.32pm (including line rental and BT Sport HD).

I don't think a dish can be too big in a technical sense, although of course massive dishes might be an eyesore. Larger dishes can theoretically withstand poor weather conditions better too.

I'd agree but I can understand why they did it. They needed a vehicle for Willow to turn evil and they wanted the characters' natural life struggles to be a big focus of the season.

You realise it's more about the fact that she said it rather than it was simply said? I watched ITV's showing of Skyfall and don't remember the line at all so I think it was simply cut rather than...

Pretty sure I already covered why some people don't like it. :p

Erm, and it's the BBFC who decides what is and isn't appropriate for a certain certificate. So they are partially to blame.

It wasn't "shot in 4:3". It was shot in the Super35 format from series 3 onwards, which is 16:9. However, the show was mainly framed for 4:3, whilst being mostly protected for 16:9.
