Spurious Awards Of The Week

Timing Of The Week

Now that Merlin is being broadcast so late on a Saturday night, the writers seem to be taking full advantage of the fact that the last five minutes are post-watershed. Who’d have thought four years ago the show would have a fisting gag?

Costume Designer Of The Week

Looks like Jean-Paul Gaultier has joined the Red Dwarf production team.

Fictional Break-Up Of The Week

Gillian Anderson denied all those recent rumours that she and David Duchovny were dating in a Guardian interview this week, but it seems she would have been happy to play along for a while if her old X-Files mate hadn’t revealed the truth first. “You mean me and David [Duchovny], romantically? No, there wasn't any truth in that. I was enjoying the ludicracy [sic] of it for a while, but then he started denying it publicly and so I lost all my enjoyment of it… I emailed him at one point and said: ‘You left the toilet seat up again.’”

Surprise Cameo Of The Week

We know David Tennant has become a bit of an advert whore recently, but we were still a bit surprised when a thinly-disguised 10th Doctor turned up in a car insurance ad that fell out of mag delivered to the office. “I am not an animal, I am Time Lord!”
