That thing

Sharon tells me that Peter Kay will be appearing in an episode of Dr. Who next month. I'll start:

"Time travel? Time...and travel? It's the future, I've been there."

He was on Corrie, too.

I think it's only me and Betty in the whole world who don't find him funny.

Horses for courses isn't it, Geoff. I've never understood Red Dwarf or that cartoon thing with the English sounding camp baby and the talking dog that folk rave about.

King of the Hill's good.

Red Dwarf...Nah, not funny either.

He's on Corrie, too.

I wonder if they'll do one of those comedy link shows about Corrie?

Richard, please make be feel olfder than I already am. When I was grwoing up in Wales in the 60's I watched more than my share of Tom Baker, collected the little picture cards of the Doctor Who episodes from the ice cream truck, ate the ice lollies shaped like the rocket ships from that gang of space travelers that Dr. Who took up with at one point, and getting my 5-year-old self spooked from the sight of Daleks.

Those were the days!

Tom, no I haven't fathomed the DVD recorder yet.

Mr Frontier Ed, I will make you feel younger, Tom Baker was in the 70s. Last week's episode of Dr Who even featured Sarah Jane Smith and K9. I'm so glad you understand our cultural references, (despite the ELO thing). Tom Baker, you may like to know, has the 4th most recognisable voice in the known universe. As a result he has read every word and syllable in the OED for BT so now when you send a smutty text message to a landline, you can have Dr Who reading it out for you.It has also spawned many sites taking advantage of this. Yesterday I heard Tom "singing" The Pistols' "God Save the Queen." He has a house not far from my Mum's and she has seen him in the Ashford branch of Staples, an office supply chain.

The ice lollies were Zoom. I liked them, my sister liked Fab. Enough.

No, Geoff (and Betty), I can take him or leave him too. Red Dwarf - I've covered that elsewhere, though sadly not in the matter I would choose.

Tom, his sex life is none of your business.

I'm not sure if it's any of mine either.

My mistake on Baker - who was the good doctor circa 1967-68? That was the one I watched.

I also got my fill of the Magic Roundabout then as well.

Not to denegrate the rest of the commenters here but I'm disappointed to see that Ossie hasn't been on here talking about how justice has prevailed, and how the current Chelsea squad are now the best team of all time, and what curry and beer combination he opted for last night.

Do you think he has exploded after eating his own body weight in chicken madras?

No Betty, maybe the Chelsea supporters are finally beginning to catch on that there is a certain grace that accompanies winning with humility.
Learn the lessons from those who are used to winning - Liverpool FC.

I don't think he needs to although I think he peaked a touch too early in my view. He could have left it a week to bring in the heavy gloating, couldn't he. I do feel I ought to know him though, which is quite annoying. I do wish he'd come clean on that one because if I want to embarrass myself I would rather not do it in front of people I've bought drinks for and may well do again in the future.

Will they eat bread? Garlic... bread?

Cherry Pie!

Let them eat Buns!

I used to like Fabs. I think you can still get them, can't you? I used to like Funny Faces, too. Remember those?
