Default Bodyguard

What a load of old tosh!

We saved it up for the weekend, having liked the writer's 'Line of Duty' , but I think he must have had some kind of cerebral event while writing this one.

At one point in the first episode, Graham pointed out it was like that old Two Ronnies sketch where 'wimmin' have taken over the world!

Nevertheless, we persevered with Episode 2 and sat gazing in disbelief at the screen, when, after having been shot at by a sniper who turned out to be a mate of the neurotic protection officer, the pair of them fell into bed - but nobody sang 'I will always love you'!

At that point, we gave up and watched 'Guardians of the Galaxy2' again, mostly because Graham couldn't find 'Carry on up the Khyber'!

Carry On films are great for filling in gaps on a boring Saturday!

Carry On Don't Lose Your Head was on ITV3 this afta… 'Hi didn't realaize we were so near the sea'!! Carry On Choppin'!!

Howling with laughter - mai favourite laine!

Another 'laine' which used to cast me and my friend Michael into helpless hysteria was in 'Carry on up the Khyber' when the fort was under attack and half the ceiling fell on Lady Ruff-Diamond (Joan Sims) during a boozy dinner and she said, "Ai think Ai'm a little plastered!"

I know, I know - it doesn't sound all that funny, but it was for us!

It's a shame that Jed Mecurio didn't write another series of Line of Duty instead - as we could be watching that now!

I can't help thinking that because the BBC rate him so highly, someone just went along with his way out ideas for Bodyguard and rubber stamped everything he wrote. We quite enjoyed episode one, but by the second we were beginning to think it was really getting too far fetched and last night's episode just went way over the top.

We might just as well have watched Vanity Fair which was on ITV at the same time, but I've not exactly been impressed by the trailers I've seen for it either.

The bonkers dial has just gone completely off the scale

I'm guessing that the Home Secretary, aka Keeley Hawes, isn't dead but is now living safely in the star system of Alpha Centuari where she is being well cared for by a lot of little green men
