In random order:
1. Some more of the missing episodes to turn up somewhere. Anywhere. Just as long as they’re found. (I would especially like The Power Of The Daleks to turn up somewhere).
2. When the excellent An Adventure In Space & Time is repeated on any channel, they must always show the mini-documentary at the end. (It was repeated on the Drama channel without the bit at the end once, even though it said on the electronic programme guide on my TV that the mini-documentary would be shown.)
3. A sequel to An Adventure In Space & Time about the Troughton era of the show, with a mini-documentary at the end.
4. Actually, come to think of it – to commemorate next year’s 50th anniversary of the first regeneration, some TV company must make a full-length documentary about Pat’s life and career.
5. No moving the new series around in the schedules for other programmes.
6. I’d love to see an episode made in a faux-documentary style. But I think a musical episode would be naff.
7. I don’t mind who the new companion is, as long as it’s not Lindsay Lohan.
Last night I watched the Family Guy / Simpsons crossover episode on BBC2. As someone who was very disappointed by the Simpsons Movie (the only things I liked in the Simpsons Movie were Green Day and Spiderpig) I felt that the Family Guy / Simpsons crossover should have been feature-length as it just wasn’t long enough to include everything it could have done. I’d love to see a Family Guy / Simpsons / American Dad! / Futurama crossover movie.
Although it should really have been feature-length, Simpsons Guy is still one of my favourite Family Guy episodes. (My absolute favourite Family Guy episode is the Back To The Future one which finishes with Brian singing Never Gonna Give You Up, and my favourite Simpsons episode is Treehouse Of Horror III).
RIP Charles Kennedy 1959 – 2015.
A great man who will be sadly missed.
Five more years of horrible shiny nasty David Cameron. On the bright side Nigel Farage has resigned (for the time being).
The election results ensure that the Lib Dems are now spoilt for choice as to who could be London Mayoral candidate.
TONIGHT. 1930hrs. LIVE ON BBC1.
I was puzzled by a recent poll in which it was found that David Cameron was considered “statesmanlike”, “competent” and “intelligent”. David Cameron is about as “statesmanlike” as Mr Blobby.
In the recent Channel 4 documentary The Secret Life Of 4 Year Olds, the kids were insulting each other by saying “You’re a green toilet” or “You’re a purple toilet”. Ergo, David Cameron is a blue toilet. And because I can tell no difference between UKIP and the Tories – and I dislike the fact that UKIP’s colours are not far off Bradford City colours – Nigel Farage is also a blue toilet.
