  1. another fab show. may even make me go back and watch Ashes to Ashes.

  2. You really should catch this season of Ashes to Ashes, particularly episodes 1, 2 and 4, on the iPlayer. It really is very good indeed! Forget any disappointments you might have had last year – this year might even be better than Life on Mars! Four episodes left to broadcast and I can’t wait to see where they take them!

    I second El Presidente. It’s so much better than last year, and they’re seeding so many interesting threads. This week’s story was a cracker.

    Re “Sublimibal” message – how strange, I have Kingons on the Starboard Bow, Starboard Bow, Starboard Bow…

    Thankyou Lord McFadayan and El Presidente.

    I shall now go back and decipher the rest. I claim my prize!
