Now then! Tonight is the main event, my Spooks (episode 7), BBC1 at 9pm. Please to be watching at your conveniences. Yes. Don't worry about the serial stuff if you've never seen the show, or this series so far, it all holds together even if you have no idea who is who (have heard from people who've never seen the show before, and they assure me this is true, so there).
Feedback on the early showing has been good so far, I'm very happy. The BBC3 showing was the most watched multichannel show of the day last week, with 1.02 million viewers. And one of those viewers was me, so I feel part of a big happy family. I'll talk more about the episode once it's been on - due to the twisty turny nature of the series itself, spoilers are even more annoying than usual, and I don't want to ruin it for anyone. So let's meet back here later. With crisps and fizzy pop.
It was a busy week last week, so I'm a bit shattered, apologies to anyone waiting for emails, calls, or rescuing from a burning building. Two meetings at the BBC on separate days (Monday and Wednesday), then I flew over to Dublin Thursday night, met up with friends for too many drinks, spoke at a seminar Friday afternoon, flew back home Friday night (got back at midnight), then was up early Saturday morning to catch a train down to Cardiff for the TW wrap party. Just got back yesterday afternoon, and now I have no idea who I am or what's going on in the world. Also, where the hell did 2008 go? What are you people up to? This is all an elaborate conspiracy against me. I know what's going on. I'm watching you people. I'm watching all of you. Through my special spy tube. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and sit in a cupboard, whispering to myself and carving wooden stakes for when the vampires come for me. What, you don't believe in vampires? Sure, whatever, you bury your head in the sand if you want, but me? I'll be ready.
I think I should go and sleep for a bit.
