TelevisionGood British comedy - 'Spaced', 'Black Books', 'Big Train', 'The Boosh', 'The Office', 'League of Gentlemen', 'Nighty Night'...and 'The Good Life'. 'Edge of Darkness' - now that is how you do TV drama. Ditto 'House of Cards' and 'State of Play'. 'Doctor Who' and 'Quantum Leap', because I'm a sucker for good sci-fi. 'Lost', because I'm just a sucker.
Books'The Shipping News' (or anything by Annie Proulx). 'Master and Margarita'. Currently obsessed with P.G. Wodehouse. Peter Hoeg. Graham Greene. Haruki Murakami. The Dictionary of English Place Names. Shakes-bloody-speare. The His Dark Materials trilogy and 'Lord of the Rings'. But I'll read pretty much anything (bleach bottles included)... except The Da-Sodding-Vinci Code. Dan Brown should have his computer confiscated and his fingers broken.
You are a god to me has 47 friends.
About me:I was on 'Blockbusters' once. I sucked. Bob Holness took pity on me and gave me an Extra Strong Mint. He called them "Bob Mints". What a lovely man. I find the etymology of place names fascinating, so you would be well advised to never to go on a long car journey with me. I never remember to drink my 8 glasses of water a day. ..
