I don’t think so Sellers. He is pretty much a socially inept, sexually repressed Catholic boy! It would take him ages to get laid (and probably marriage put first).

Charlie: ‘Love that is not madness is not love.’

Simon: What?

Charlie: It’s a quotation.

Simon: Don’t get it.

Charlie: It means, it’s not logical, is it, who we are attracted to. I mean, haven’t you found that?

I can’t decide yet if Case Sensitive is a brilliant detective drama (though it’s rather good so far), but it IS bloody brilliant as a UST cop drama.

Case Sensitive returns on 12 July on ITV1

This adaptation sounds quite different from the novel (The Other Half Lives), but…

A young and very pretty new DC has joined the team, and when Charlie Zailer (Olivia Williams) catches Simon Waterhouse (Darren Boyd) chatting and laughing with Amber (Christina Chong), DS Sellers (Ralph Ineson) comments: ‘I bet he’s shagged her by the end of the week.’ Charlie’s bothered by it – more bothered than she’s like to admit.

 Ohh dear. Jealousy can always spice up relationships, even dysfunctional ones.

The sidekick of a thousand comedy shows Kevin Eldon, whose credits include Big Train, Brass Eye and I’m Alan Partridge, has been given his own show by BBC2. 
It’s Kevin will be produced by the BBC in-house team behind BBC2’s Bafta-winning Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle. The six-part series will feature sketches, songs, and guest appearances by Eldon’s “comedy friends”. It’s Kevin will air early next year. The first episode will feature a song and dance number, The Incredible Moose Human, some performance poetry and a slot called Wendy Wilson’s White Coat Window on the World of World Wide Wonders, which may or may not become a regular feature. 
It’s Kevin was commissioned by BBC2 controller Janice Hadlow and Cheryl Taylor, controller, comedy commissioning. Taylor described Eldon as a “very special comedian indeed and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase his many talents on BBC2”. Eldon, who has also appeared in Smack the Pony, Nighty Night, Stewart Lee’s BBC2 show and Hot Fuzz, said: “I have always liked chaffinches. The money I may receive from this show may well allow me buy to more pictures of chaffinches.”

The show reunited Stephen and Tamsin after their triumphant collaboration on Green Wing, and he says it has made playing husband and wife much easier.

"Sometimes, when you play husband and wife, you are meeting the other person for the first time. But we have this real relationship where we know each other so well, and we have known each other for so many years, and we make each other laugh, which is all a big bonus."

Do you admire Sean’s optimism?
Stephen Mangan I love it, yes and it’s unusual for me to play a character like that who’s the peacemaker, who’s the optimist – who’s the smoother-over. He doesn’t like confrontation, and I normally play the one who stirs up trouble. So, yes, I do. I really like him and he affects my own disposition. I’m much chirpier when I’m playing Sean.

Well, it’s actually not the same, especially if you were a person who gets motion sickness easily…isn’t it? It’s caused by the gap between the visual perception and the sense of movement in your ears. An escalator (should be moving by your eyes) that doesn’t work (but your vestibular system can’t feel the movement) is different from normal stairs, or at least I believe so! I feel dizzy every time I get the top of an escalator that’s not turned on. I hope some day my stupid brain can handle the fact that they are exactly the same!
