QUESTION OF THE MONTH
Which TV programme would you choose to be trapped in forever?
Julia Raeside
Lovejoy – no question. Tinker, Eric and Lady Jane, antiques, East Anglian countryside, that confident mullet and leather jacket combo. It’s actually perfect.
Hannah Dunleavy
King of the Hill. Hank and I could just mow lawns together and never have to talk about our feelings or bodily functions.
Jen Brown
Only Fools and Horses. I’ve been in love with Del Boy for years.
Jen Offord
My So-Called Life, to legitimise my 20 year run of teenage angst. And accompanying crush on Jordan Catalano.
Margaret Cabourn-Smith
Jam and Jerusalem – surrounded by idyllic pubs, funny women and scones.
Julie Balloo
Bewitched.
Daisy Leverington
The X-Files. Spending forever in a Mulder/Scully sandwich and wearing a flasher mac sounds ace.
Rose Biggin
Last of the Summer Wine. Wander round the countryside all day, push my friends downhill in a homemade go-kart, home for tea & scones.
Jane Hill
Broadchurch. As long was there wasn’t any murdering, because it’s a beautiful place with a nice beach.
Sally-Anne Hayward
E.R. Just me and George.

    The dogs of awww
