The gore has definitely gone up a level - I've always found it quite cartoonish on this show, which given it's comic book origins is understandable - but the scene in the revolving door last week was quite graphic by the standards of the show. Can't wait for the last one - the spinoff looks interesting too, although maybe stretching the premise a bit too far?

Masterchef: hair stylist Alan is wearing a bowler hat in the kitchen and therefore should be given the boot without even getting to cook.

 

Getting rid of the dross could be so quick and easy, but noooo...

Anyone else watching The Ark on BBC1? It's certainly lit up Twitter! Lots of incredulity that Noah and his family have Mancunian accents. But no one ever bats an eye at biblical figures speaking RP and not aramaic.

Yes it's a Marriott Edgar poem made popular by Stanley Holloway.
Easily my favourite of his monologues.
