    Possible Idea relate to the "What to watch" thread

I don’t know if anyone would be interested, or can make suggestions on how to work it, but I thought I would throw the idea out there and see if floats or vanishes without trace. This site has members from all...

    Compo's teeth

    Has anyone else noticed how Compo's teeth improve over the series'? NB: I use the term "improve" in a relative way :fp: In the first couple of series he seems to have very little teeth left, especially on the lower jaw. I know a lot is makeup and dentures etc, but as you go through all the...

    Death on the Tyne

    I watched this yesterday. It is a made for TV movie, spoof murder whodunit comedy with Johnny Vegas and an ensemble cast. It isn't going to win any awards, but is harmless, brainless entertainment. Apparently it is a follow on to a film he did LAST Christmas called Murder on the Blackpool...

    Just noticed

    It is amazing what you can spot when you are not looking for it. I just spotted another "mistook" I hadn't seen before. We all know about the microphones AND shadows appearing in shots (especially in the early series), also the obvious use of doubles, reflections of the crew etc etc, but I just...

    Characters that are "REAL" as opposed to being acted.

    I have got to thinking recently, for some unknown reason, about how much a character can surpass an actor’s own personality. I am well aware that this is an extremely subjective viewpoint and has nothing to do with the ability of the actor, or of the script, direction etc. etc. but how many...
