I'm in the church and I've come to claim you with my iron drum la la la la la la

Apparently they're bringing back Inspector Morse, in spite of the fact that it is three years since the death of John Thaw. What next? Queen touring without Freddie Mercury? The Doors without Jim Morrison? Taggart without Taggart?

Keep your eyes peeled for the forthcoming nostalgia tour being headlined on alternate nights by T-Rex and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. One not to be missed.

    Oh, I don't know. The Who seem to be doing pretty good touring even though 3/5 have died... and then there's INXS and that new "reality" show contest to replace Hutchence.

    INXS were rubbish *with* Michael Hutchence, weren't they?

    Queen without Freddy - blasphemy!

    Among many of the moving moments I've had at the AIDS quilt is seeing and touching his square.

    Well at least they're not actually bringing back Morse. They're just bringing back Lewis, with his own spin-off series. It's quite bad enough dealing with Sherlock Holmes when he isn't Basil Rathbone...

    bugger off bargain.

    You may watch end-on-end repeats of "Ready, Steady, Cook!" in your house, but Morse was a quality programme, and no mistake.

    flash - give me some credit.

    "bugger off flash" isn't alliterative enough.... I'd have to think of something else.

    INXS are trailblazers, using a talent show to get a new singer.

    Oh wait, they're not. Frankie Goes To Hollywood beat them to it.

    oh come on. Morse was about as exciting as birdwatching. I am glad ITV have invented ITV3 so they can stick all that ploddy "designed for fiftysomethings" middle aged murder shite on one channel (Poirot/Midsomer Murders/A Touch Of Frost/Morse....)

    and I don't watch Ready, Steady, Cook, you patronising bag of toss...
