Yes, OK, this is just an excuse to do a load of Meltdown quotes. Although at least it gives me the chance to say yet again that the episode is brilliant, and anyone who hates it is a fool.

“The gentleman of music” is also playing dates in Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg. For details of buying tickets for the UK shows, go to www.ticketzone.co.uk. I personally think we should all turn up to one of the dates and annoy everyone by reciting Meltdown word for word. I wonder if James Last fans can turn nasty?
Meanwhile, his greatest hits album, Gold, was released on November 17th. The perfect Christmas gift for the Rimmer in your family.
