Good cop was excellent last night
One or two clunky bits, such as how he found the gun: there's always a bit of loose floor board cut out to make a hiding place... Bit of a deus ex machina, but otherwise a good story

I'll just say, here and now, that the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who on Saturday night 'Asylum of the Daleks' was absolutely brilliant and that the bloke who wrote it, Steven Moffat, who is also responsible for the modern day version of Sherlock, is a genius when it comes to creating top quality tv drama.

I think it was Art Dudley who described American TV as "a garbage truck, driven by a talking mule, crashing into a burning whorehouse". So it could be a lot worse over here.

There's plenty of stuff for most interests across the average week, and there's always the 'off' button, when things are bad.

I really enjoyed it. The only (slight) problem for me was location familiarity and having to suppress the urge to shout at the TV "you don't go past that to get there" all the timewhen they were showing him driving from one place to another. :rolleyes:

I watched the new Daybreak this morning.

Not much different from the old one, except: -
- ITV has pinched Laura Tobin from the BBC to do the weather. They should never have got rid of Kirsty McCabe, she was brilliant.
- Aled Jones could scare a rabbit at fifty paces with the glare from his newly-whitened teeth.
- the presenters seemed to be genuinely friends with each other rather than presenting the company line.

Bland seems to be the theme; no sign of any danger or liveliness, though, in fairness, personal chemistry will take time to develop.

The BBC and ITV shows are largely interchangeable. Why can't we have one of the team who is, understandably, habitually crotchety at having to get up at four o'clock every morning. The others could have a great time annoying him/her ... just like what happens in most families at breakfast time.

Don't the BBC ones stay in a hotel all week missing their kids and what not?! Also, it's the same thing each hour; record it, loop it. Back to bed.

He was nowhere near as bad as everyone claims. Despite his BBC success, maybe he lacked self confidence in the ITV showpiece role.
For me, his problem was that, when he just got a bit grumpy, it was not gleefully picked up on by his co-presenters. Neither did he react properly (as would have been enjoyed by viewers) by getting on his high horse and giving a bit of devilment back. He is a fairly witty bloke and, if he had kicked off, and reacted like he did on radio football shows, I think he would have been regarded as a great success.

Eamon Holmes is grumpy and occasionally kicks off, but he isn't as fundamentally "nice" as Adrian Chiles and is a lot happier dishing it out that getting some back in return. He comes across to me as a bit of a bully.

Don't know who she is but if that means that Lucy Verasmy has gone then the TV will not be going on in the morning. :(

Apparently she's moved to the main ITV national weather service.

In other words she's moved from one section of the Met Office to another. Perhaps she didn't fancy moving to Salford with BBC ? (FYI BBC forecasters used to be based at White City with ITV based at building on south bank near National Theatre).
