I always thought the munchkins were a bit grumpy and the dog must have got danger money.

Re: That Hallway Looks Familiar!

I wonder just how many episodes included a scene or two from the well worn "hallway" on the studio set? I get a kick out of discovering yet another scene in the oh-so-familiar hall, that despite the effort of the crew to change wall paper and colour scheme looks 90 per cent the same. I'm ...

I know the feeling. When I go on holiday I get more channels and there's always the chance of The Avengers being on!

Re: Donald Sutherland (1935-2024)

Sorry to hear that Donald Sutherland has died. We remember seeing him in the cinema in 1979 in the film 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', in Mash and in our episode - 'The Superlative Seven'. He had a very likeable screen persona, no matter what his role. RIP.

Yes, very like James Bond's 'M' - but not so much reserve! Of course Mother, by explaining things, took the plac...
