I tumbled for skates on Amazon and bid for a spiffy bobblehat on e-Bay before I got to the small print at the end. Bastards.

Fabulous review, JoAnne. Bernard's being excellent was about the only decent thing I found myself able to extract from this globulous poffle. Kids loved it as much as ever, though, which makes me quite the jaundiced 39 year old joy vacuum.

Jack's pant-pissing mien would have had Little Nell tittering through her own death throes; he looked like John Noakes inadvertently swallowing a live bee. Plus, what's with the "WE'RE dead" line? Talk about taking the piss.

Good review. Ach, I'll always watch and love the show, but I'm increasingly envious of my kids at whom it is clearly aimed and who get a very big kick out of it. Seriously, though, the poison must be pretty shit if we're to assume (with concrete certainty, I assume) that it's not going to do much / any damage to an elderly gent locked in and surrounded by it for the duration of a typically overcooked cliffhanger. Finally - I might be wrong, but I always thought that the Glasgow Empire "oh f**k, there's two of them.." tale involved Mike and Bernie Winters rather than the sainted Eric 'n Ern. Jesus, even the tenth Doctor would be scrabbling desperately for a broomhandle mauser if confronted with Bernie's toothsome "eeh-heeehhh!" schtick.....
