Cracking final episode/one off special of the Royle Family on tonight. If you never saw it or never got into it, you really really missed out. They had a talking heads retrospective on after the news that basically had a bunch of celebs showing off about how much they loved the show - so they had all the ones you'd expect to do a talking head slot, like Peter Kaye, and some you wouldn't, like JK Rowling, who was evidently very happy to be filmed wittering on about how much she loved the characters ... and I thought: 'Wait a minute, Joanne. you have been watching far too much of this show, my love.'

Clearly all she was doing between 2000 and 2003 was watching the repeats on UK Gold.

New baby my arse...

Westminster Station was closed yesterday for essential engineering work, although this morning's Metro hints that it was in fact being used to film Order of the Phoenix ... whatever, there was no sign of any activity on the District Line platforms.

Maybe they're incorporating Barb's fic.

My God, that was dangerously 2002 of me. I apologise.

Today's Metro also 'very dared me' to not buy a copy of Catherine Tate's new DVD. I think that's a dare that I'd be entirely up for if it saves me from giving a single penny of my money to that talentless offensive bitch. Her next series replaces Extras on BBC2 this Thursday, so I'll make a mental note to avoid the TV until 9:30, when OMFGSIMONAMSTELL!11! is hosting Buzzcocks.

It's funny how a show like Extras, which has flashes of genius - Robert de Niro and Ian McKellan being cases in point - can be so summarily followed with something so shit (I'm back on Catherine Tate here, because I really really hate her): 'Oh, and next week, Mr de Niro, we'll be replacing this pinnacle of wit with a sketch show that relies mostly on swearing grannies and offending the gays.'

I wonder if Boris is going to be on this series of HIGNFY...
