I saw the sad news on Twitter. I suppose after wringing maximum comic mileage from poor old Brian over 3 good series & the DVD, it makes sense to finish him off with a tribute programme. Looking forward to it, but let’s just hope life doesn’t imitate art!

RIP Brian - how you got consigned to BBC4 while BBC1 broadcasts unfunny dross like Mrs Brown’s Boys as prime-time comedy is a mystery sad

My daughter texted the news to my wife (she subscribes to NME) while I was driving, and my wife "broke the news" to me. She seemed a little bemused when I laughed! cheesy

Sorry, I like MBB, the outtakes that aren't taken out are the best bits.

Ta for the heads-up, I'll be recording. It had slipped past me somehow.

SPOILERS ALERT

As I've found with all the Pern stuff, it was pretty unsophisticated and not very funny but with a few nice touches here and there. For me probably the best thing was the range of people they managed to get involved, and bookending the show with Collins trying to promote his book. PG's demonic appearance was amusing.
