No, I am not talking about “Ugly Betty” (which I am addicted to), but genre offerings such as “FlashForward”, “Defying Gravity” and “True Blood”.

A few months ago, my increasingly-tatty paper driving licence finally fell to bits. It had already been repaired with tape, so I thought it was time to get a new all-singing-and-dancing photo-id license. It would be easy to keep in my wallet – unlike the paper license – and I would have it wherever I go.
It was only a short ceremony, as the main service had been at her cremation, back in August.
As we are selling the house, and I am not going to be back there much now, I cancelled her account at the beginning of October. I was told it would take 30 days for the account to be closed, so when I saw a payment go through in October, I did a mental shrug.
As I knew full well what that message would be – the long-awaited launch of the Iplayer Channel – I couldn’t resist having a look.
This year, they are running from Thursday April 8 to Sunday April 11. I have booked the Friday, figuring that it will be heaving over the weekend, and probably pretty busy on the opening day. Probably, all 4 days will be booked solid.
The other day, I wasn’t desperate, but I had bought a new reading lamp, so I picked up a book at random to find a good position for the lamp. Of course, it was Nightshade, and the book grabbed me immediately.
