Personal Quote:

The BBC is in many ways wonderful, but it is not good at recognising when a programme has come to the end of its natural life. Programmes are like weeds - they spring up, grow quickly, and then should be allowed to die quickly. I think the BBC needs to be much more adventurous. I am horrified by this appetite they have for relaunches and remakes. They should be thinking about doing something new. See more »
