It really shows up the modern day Christmas TOTP for what it is.

He gets paid by the Beeb, which is of course funded by the taxpayer.

I think Top Gear more than pays its way in terms of global exports.

I still enjoy the original Minder, and when you compare it to the recent incarnation with Shane Richie, the Waterman-Cole vehicle is a masterpiece!!

George Cole is brilliant as Arfur Daley as well.
