Christmas is what people make it or want from it. Some observe the whole holiday until 6 Jan, some have had enough after Christmas dinner. I'm not religious and so for me it's a quiet affair but I...

I'm not particularly a feminist or a Bond fan but when I saw this film on DVD last night I felt that the portrayal of both M and Moneypenny were retrograde steps for women in the franchise.

Ah right. I thought I recognised her face from the original but I haven't seen that for about 30 years. Was she in it too? My point still stands though. I didn't think the 'ladder' scenario was funny...

My thoughts exactly. He only stopped writing 'Keeping Up Appearances' when Patricia Routledge no longer wanted to do it. Given his track record, it's a wonder he didn't try to replace her with a lost...

No need to be offened on a woman's behalf. The actual lyric is John Travolta singing: "I'd better shape up 'cos you need a man".

That was one of my worst ads too. One of the 'Mammy's Boys' looks a complete simpleton - I think he played the accordian! The mammy's voice over was annoying too. The way she said 'Richmond sausages'...

The main problem with the pilot for me was that Granville was written as Arkwright and not as Granville. It would have worked if the character had been consistent.

I think his best role was 'Frost'. I find him very watchable in that. I like the way that he's often eating in many scenes. Not many actors use food as a prop and eat so naturally on camera.

The pilot may have worked at some level if Granville had been the same character he was in the 1970s/80s. Instead, it seemed like very lazy writing from Roy Clarke - as if he dusted off some old...
