Companions Chat

You can’t keep companions quiet, especially when they’re chatterboxes Noel Clarke and Freema Agyeman, who between them have separately bent the ears of Doctor Who Magazine and Digital Spy. Freema told DWM this month of how she was very critical of her own performance after seeing her companion-debut episode Smith and Jones. “When I watched…

Muppetry

As far as transatlantic comedy goes, it really hasn’t ever been any funnier than The Muppet Show. Jim Henson’s amaxing creations had been entertaining kids around the world in the educational Sesame Street before ATV supremo Lew Grade offered Henson a deal that would see the show filmed at Elstree in England, networked to ITV…

Ruddy Hell, What’s Wrong with Everyone? (OR: Why am i the only one who enjoyed Harry Enfield’s latest series?)

So I continue to wait for news about a return for Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse’s bloody good series Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry and Paul. A great portion of so-called comedy “experts” seriously attacked the series in the press and online, and frankly the attacks were unwarranted, especially in light of Armstrong & Miller’s first…
