Re: The New Avengers - on ITV4

I've read about Ian Hendry's alcoholism but not Gareth Hunt. According to his IMDB entries he was still working in his last years on TV and I know he toured in a play around this time because I nearly went to see it. He was also seen in an episode of Doctors a month before he died.

Re: Mrs Merton and Malcolm

I'm uncomfortable by words such as 'retard'/ 'retarded' and 'simple'. Malcolm seems to have a learning disability and Arthur has clear signs of dementia. But yes, I thought it was a great series. It had decent ratings back then (and excellent ratings by today's standards). There were plans for a sec...

Re: Whizzer & Chips # 1 reprint

Great. I'd buy a Whizzer & Chips collection if it was anything like the DC/Marvel Showcase/Essentials line.

Re: Timeslip in colour??

Did Liz ever change her tartan skirt throughout the series?

Wonderful Timeslip. It was great to follow the series and read the strip in Look-In. I wonder if they'll ever remake it.

That's what I did, too.
I can never get sizes in Paint, just the % of the original pic. I always use Piknic/Picasa.

Re: Eggheads

Those insights are fascinating and I'm sure you are right. In some cases they really do just guess though, which is what I mean rather than the waffling, especially when they get the question wrong and blame their age. I do like Eggheads though and I'm not really complaining. It's nice to see older ...

Re: British TV: 50 years ago

Obviously, it The Avengers episodes I'm most interested in reading, but it's very useful to read it in context.

Thanks for the info. Will pass it on.

Not at all. I think they just altered some of the controls and taken away some of the detail as a consequence. I've not watched any of them, I'm just repeating what others have said.

Re: Eggheads

I think Dave is there because they needed someone that is not middle aged now that The Smug One has gone (under whatever circumstances). I agree that he needs to do better, but it's still early days and he just needs to gen up. I have to say if I had a £ for every time a Challenger said "It's gonna ...
