Have I Got News For Who

I have to say I found Tom Baker very amusing as guest host. But I might be biased.

Not seen it yet - I've taken to watching the extended edition on a Saturday night. It's like a Director's Cut for telly. Which is the way forward, if you ask me.

He was very good, yes. Will watch the Director's Cut tonight, too.

Now all we need is a goofy sc-fi series starring Tom Baker, Brian Blessed and Andrew Sachs. "Manuel Searches for Flash Gordon in a TARDIS," perhaps?


...perhaps not...

I was really impressed by Baker, particularly how much better his actual ad-libs were than his obviously-scripted ones.  A lot sharper than his mugging to camera might suggest.  Tom Baker for New Who in a regeneration-goes-wrong scenario!  That'd be a turnip for the books.

Doubly so for echoing what the entire viewing audience was thinking.
