Wasps. What are they good for? Well, as the old song goes, absolutely nothing – apart from to irritate the hell out of you on a hot summer's day. And even worse, they'll sting you without a second thought. At least bees may think twice about this, given that they're committing suicide in the process. But the wasp has no such mechanism to make it as benign, and more to the point, they'll make you look a fool in the process. Whether you're freezing like a waxwork dummy or doing some sort of crazy war dance in a vain bid to get rid of the annoying bugger, they'll still sting you like no tomorrow.
So a giant wasp should scare the bejesus out of any living man, woman or child. No wonder the latest Doctor Who story makes a virtue out of this with a story called The Unicorn And The Wasp. »
… but what would the Us networks make of Last Of The Summer Wine?
The history of bad UK to Us TV adaptations is long and illustrious. From Coupling to Cracker via Life On Mars, the list of wrecks is so long, there's even a sitcom about it – Episodes – which starts on BBC2 this week. But in a red-hot Guardian exclusive, Stuart Heritage has gained access to plans to give a slew of British classics a Stateside spin. Compo, watch out!
UK summary The definitive British gardening magazine show. If you ever wanted to know how to check cyclamen for fungal growth, or what makes your parsnips fork so unattractively, then this gently pastoral series is just what you've been looking for.
