    Just seen your interview with Stuart Fell – great but looking forward to more comments on the programmes which I find very insightful.

      Thanks Rod. There are definitely more episode comments to come. It just takes us a bit of time to sync our schedules, watch stuff, make notes and turn those notes into an article. Actually, about 90% of the delay is down to turning the notes into articles; we’re a bit work-shy.
