John’s Roundup – 21/6/06 News Posted by John Hoare on 21st June 2006, 00:30 Our usual roundup, then. Sorry. Believe me when I say large plans are afoot for this place, but I’m keeping my mouth shut for now… THEY’RE ILLEGAL MATEY: No doubt most of you have heard the news by now, but just in case: original Mirror story, BBC story confirming Corrie/6 Music suspension. I’m frankly fucking appalled at The Mirror – “early 1990s BBC2 sci-fi comedy”? It started in 1988! Journalism at its finest. More seriously, we’re not going to comment further until there’s been a statement from Craig. BEST EVER SPITTING IMAGE: Starting this Sunday! 10:30pm! ITV1! And Rob and Doug are interviewed! This is excellent news, and bodes well for the series as a whole – seeing as the excellent Tooth & Claw reveals that the Comedy Police basically saved the show in its early days, there’s been a laughable lack of acknowledgement of this. This does have the potential to be a great series – it looks as though some real effort has gone into the show. The best thing we can hope for now is a full repeat of Spitting Image, from the beginning, on ITV4 – the show more than deserves it. FAT: Now put back from November 2nd to December 28th. Just missing the Christmas market. Well done! Bear in mind this was originally supposed to be released on May 1st 2005, but projects do get put back. Oooh, lovely old design that I’ve been meaning to fix for fucking ages… That, as they say, is your lot. More soon/next month/next year* * Delete as appropriate.
