I've only heard of one of the contestants!
How do the BBC define 'celebrity'?

I enjoy good drama - and good music - but NOT at the same time!!!
I found the music infuriating, particularly in the final episode when it rendered some of the dialogue inaudible. The original...

According to the official 'Upstairs Downstairs' website, the exterior shots of 165 Eaton Place were filmed near Birmingham and not at Eaton Place at all! Why?

No wonder it didn't look quite right.

Yes, it was! ITV expected it to be a flop and it sat on their shelves for a year, finally being transmitted in a late evening slot. To their surprise, it was a huge hit - and rightly so.

So far, I'm...

Swingin' Christmas

At last, one Christmas Day show that was really worthwhile!
The terrific John Wilson orchestra with great tunes in abundance. Nearly ninety minutes of big band swing and tuneful melodies, the like of...

With her terrible speaking voice and strange mannerisms, I think that her opportunities in television are limited.

I find her voice and mannerisms very irritating.
She would be a gift to an impressionist.

I have also been disappointed with the guests in recent weeks. What's happened to old favourites like Geoffrey Durham, Rik Wakeman and Tom O'Connor?

What was wrong with the sound tonight?

My enjoyment tonight was spoiled by the echoey, distant sound for both the speech and the music. The fact that it is a bigger area should not make any difference, as the engineers have always always...

The sound quality is dreadful tonight. Difficult to make out what the band is playing as there is so much echo. Reminds me of the BBC's early experiments in stereo in the 60s!

It's funny how we all see things differently. Kate Silvertons's lips are too full for my taste, and detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. Much prefer Mary Nightingale.

I thought that the black leather outfit looked like a bin bag. Also, Rachel appears to have adopted the ghastly teenage fad of leggings - rather adolescent in my opinion.
