Of course it will. The football always fucks up the good TV.

BBC1 postpone their flagship programme? Not bloody likely. Anyway, I can't see Watford taking MU Rowdies into extra time.

Why it couldn't be on afterwards and just late I don't know.
Surely Dr Who is miles more important than making sure Any Dream Will Do is on on time?

Why?

Oh he admits he nicked the ideas from MC1.
I thought of Max Normal as soon as I saw him but didn't expect it to be mentioned :)

The Face of Boe's revelation: Not really that revelatory for anyone with any notion of how scifi telly works, is it?
Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

But as has just been said.
The Face of Boe isn't lying and the Doctor isn't wrong (in thinking he's alone), it's somewhere inbetween.

So, the Dredd namecheck, the 2000 AD namecheck and the admission that he nicked the idea of the motorway from the Prog, along with that that def was Max Normal.
Should Rebellion be getting a payment then?
The perspective on that chairs all wrong

It was a real case of spot the reference: old couple at start=american gothic. News announcer=Swifty Frisco, in fact the entire look of the motor way seems to have been lifted from the first couple of pages of Halo Jones.

Liked the plot twist but seemed like an episode that doesn't go anywhere.

What opaque forgot to say is that the MC1 and Max Normal are mentioned in the commentary.

RTD trying to do satire is never a pretty sight. Also annoying is the way you get characters with alien, plant or animal bits (next week: pigs), yet not bothering to give any real different character to their race. Father Dougal looked like he had just had his face painted at a kids party.
