Chances are, if you team up with 2 other doctor who/real ale fans, they’ll know their stuff so you can just be the member on the left who says ‘yeah’ and nods every so often! (No disrespect to the left person btw, you’re on tv, with VCM, you did good.)
Anonymous said: Big thanks for the Love 16 uploads! And how much of Victoria's pain did you feel as she openly wept for BBC4? haha
You’re welcome! I plan to post more, might even end up posting the whole book (unless that’s illegal…it’s not is it?). You can print it off and staple it together.
Oh all of it. Felt very sorry for BBC4. What have they got left now?
Today’s the day! New Only Connect, BBC TWO (2), 8:30pm. Some light at the end of the shitty Monday tunnel.
I’m sure she gets asked about a hundred times a day about those Quorn and Dove adverts.
The fact that so many advert voice overs sound like Victoria Coren, but aren’t Victoria Coren, makes me feel like I’ve been lied to.
I’ve just posted a chapter from VC’s first book. Hope it’s readable as I had to take pictures of the pages on an iPad holding it with my ridiculously shaky hands as I couldn’t use the scanner and I’ll be damned if I’m typing it out (maybe the shorter ones in the future). Added page numbers in the captions to save you from getting lost, too.
Happy bedtime reading!
Feedback/suggestions for future posts (or medical advice about my shaky hands) welcome/encouraged.
Anonymous said: Slightly bad news for the upcoming L-series of QI. I went to John Lloyd's show at the Fringe and asked him afterwards if they did an episode called 'Love' with both David and Victoria. He said no :( Apparently they're not keen on appearing on TV together. HOWEVER - he did say that the two are SO in love. Any time John talks to either of them backstage, they always say "[the other] is so wonderful. I'm so lucky, I can't believe I'm married to [him/her]"
How lovely for your friend to have met them both. Seems like we’ve made some progress since then! I remember when that article came out that was exclusively revealing that DM’s secret girlfriend was VC and then a few months later, I think, they were on WILTY together and they hadn’t confirmed anything so David had to go along with the questioning over whether or not VC phoned up Tim Henman for help with crosswords.
Omg Anon, well done on the exclusive! That’s a shame, would’ve been funny with Fry involved. Don’t blame them though actually. They’re obviously really funny together (case in point WILTY - before we all KNEW) but wouldn’t want to keep seeing them on telly having domestics about how David leaves the loo seat up!
Aw bless! Sweet yet disgustingly annoying. I love them together.
My friend met them at a party before they were married, and they didn’t even want to be in the same photo together! So he got pics of himself with each of them individually. He said they were both lovely.
