I don’t mind the greatness, it’s the age thing ...

I am soon to be a great-aunt, only a few weeks now – which is clearly ridiculous. I’m not old enough to be a great anything.

Stop. It’s time we all smelled the flowers

When suddenly your geraniums look blowsy and you’re fancying switching on the heating for an hour after dark, it’s clear the season has changed.

Move over Henry and Frank, The Borgias are here

Word had it The Borgias (Sky Atlantic) was to be like The Tudors – but with Italian sunshine and more impressive ceilings.

Only Bobby Sabel can save this

Remarkable. Extraordinary. Groundbreaking. Just when it’s universally believed Big Brother has hit rock bottom and can sink no lower, it burrows yet further and hits new, previously unexplored depths.

Hopeless... but you have to admire him for trying

I remember sobbing uncontrollably only three times during my largely happy but uneventful childhood.

I can’t keep up, doctor

It may well be true that you have to be a bit desperate, a tad lacking in get up and go, to spend an evening with Holby City.

Dot cottons on, but doesn’t cry

At 84, EastEnders stalwart June Brown proves two things. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger – if sadder – and smoking won’t necessarily shorten your life.

Question Time keeps riots debate bubbling

Rshed into the schedules and cobbled together with a single issue at the heart of it, Question Time’s special edition clearly wasn’t up to David Dimbleby’s expectations.

Ivy’s bunions tell David to stand down riot squad

When it happens it does so quite suddenly. A few fallen leaves litter the lawn, the petunias look a bit sleepy, looters stay home to watch their stolen tellies – autumn’s here.

Puff the magic Cumbrian bun we like for tea

An extraordinary week, you’ll surely agree. The US pulled from the brink of ruin, Italians stepped closer towards theirs, the BBC lost the news – again – and a nuclear bombshell dropped in west Cumbria.
