Colebourne; I highly recommend Gansters, the (Philip Martin-created and scripted) series which brought him to prominence.

(the season one instrumental theme arrangement is preferable to the Chris Farlowe vocal which graces that of season two!)

I watched Part 1 of the final Frost last night.
Enjoyable enough, even if Frost & Toolan are now way too old to be credible coppers.
Will watch Part 2 tonight, and then Secret Army is next on the viewing list, thanks to a fellow Hiver. 8-) ;)

I started watching a newish HBO serial recently, 'bored to death'. Its not bad. I dont think I will be buying it on DVD, but if you've got half an hour to kill theres worse things you could do. Its a sort of indie-kid turns inept private detective thing. Check an episode perhaps.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, the excellent - IMO - Medium is getting repeats on BBC2 in the post-midnight slot this week.

Currently watching 'Stargazing - LIVE'

with Professor Brian Cox and Dara O'Briain.

Looks good but disappointing lack of bananas in liquid nitrogen so far.

For anyone old enough to have played with an Action Man or read a Warlord comic, Colditz is getting a re-run on a channel called Yesterday later this week. Escape from the beastly hun!

I think the whole cast was pretty solid tbh, Danson was as likeable as ever. However, I stopped watching half way through season 2, for spoiler reasons that I didnt think served the show very well. I suspect interference from an external source to the script writer, its an old story :roll:
It was funny as fuck when they are baked out of their heads trying to get some private detective job done :D

Any other fans of the sky at night here? I always massively enjoy my monthly dose of Patrick Moore :) Latest one available on bbc iplayer. I think Paul vanisez is still the producer, he found the only existing home recordings of 1960s who, fucking cool even if it was only the space pirates episode 2 again!!
