  2. #: "Ivanka # to be assistant to # president" What the…? I don't even…

  3. Or maybe the # thinks the broadcast audience has so degenerated that they can't follow six weekly half-hour episodes, so just dump it all on #

  4. @luke I shall keep an eager eye out for it on *cough* other platforms. Would be nice if the # unlocked their archives, as IIRC was once seriously considered, so docu-essays was a game we could all play.

  5. @kat Oh, I'm the first to leap onto a chair. My real # life has always been adorable hedgehogs, badgers, wombles, Bill Oddies etc.; the spiders, snakes, heat, fingernails-down-blackboard accent, and proud racism is just a passing nightmare.

  6. I have had to put on a jumper. The Australian flag is at half mast. There would be a really great # reference here, but the # has blocked it on copyright grounds. Because stupid. #

  7. For many years, the only # merchandise from # Enterprises was a # of Revenge of the Cybermen, the 2nd worst story of Tom Baker's 1st series. The 3rd worst was bloody brilliant. Takes a special kind of genius to be almost, but not quite, as stupid as possible.

  8. I see that "The Fan Show" is produced by # Worldwide, the filthy lucre arm of the corporation. In my day we had #'s # Magazine. Also photocopied fanzines. Produced by fans, not by BBC Enterprises, as it was known in those days.

  9. Having been told, in 1989, that # should be put to rest because it's old and outdated, it is particularly galling, in 2016, when the # insists that I "need to install # Player to play this content."

  10. And no, # et al., the problem isn't that "Media playback is unsupported on [my] device", it's that the open standard for media playback isn't supported by you. # #

  11. "90 minutes of television that's achingly relevant. […] At a point where the # is seemingly under relentless attack, _this_ is what a licence fee buys you." #

  12. Oh, goody. Another # spinoff. Proves the # has "immense trust and commitment to the [Dr Who] brand," apparently. Our culture is not your brand, Aunty Beeb.

  16. The # have already downsized & outsourced - in the late 80s, when # was the only drama they produced in-house, until they snuffed that out as well. It took over a decade to recover from that catastrophe.
