    Seems likely this'll hit the papers, doesn't it? hey ho.

    Shame as it looks like this'll overshadow what seems to be a fascinating biography. I found the stuff from Jonathan Powell very illuminating... and horrible.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    Unfortunately. The sex stuff seems less shocking than his awful treatment of Nicola Bryant.

    Yeah, that sounded really horrible

    Yep this will definitely hit the papers, and possibly overshadow the 50th anniversary celebrations. Not good.

    Apparently the book features the question "have you ever had two up you?".

    Nice!

    I daresay the guano will be flying around publication time...

    That review reads like something out of Harry Potter a.t.D.H.

    Ian Levine reckons various papers have been in touch with him recently trying to interview him which he has declined. I'm guessing it's going to hit the headlines this weekend.

    For once, it looks as though Ian's keeping a degree of dignity about proceedings. Mind you, under the circumstances, certain people may have to...

    I'm thinking it might be held over until next week.
    It's not enough they spoil stories or anything, they have to go the whole hog and try to spoil the whole damn thing!

    I wish I hadn't even read the Matthew Sweet review - now I know too much.

    I would hope Colin Baker's lawyer gets onto them - I know that it says "who is not involved" in the very small print used to caption the photo, but that's little comfort when the screaming headline and picture suggest otherwise. Absolutely disgusting journalism.


    BTW, I've not read the book, or any reviews, so other than having gathered there's something in the wind, I don't really know what the story is - is it actually JN-T and/or Gary Downie abusing young fans, or is that over-emotive, 'newspapers jumping on the Savile bandwagon', language for something perfectly legal having happened, which might be considered akin to rock stars having one night stands?

    I know there are some children who read this site, so I will put my thoughts in tags. Be warned I am swearing.

    Oh for ****'s sake! I can't believe this shit! It's nothing! The people involved are dead! The horse has pissed off! Why aren't these arseholes going after the ministers involved with the Elm House paedo nonsense? (Stay tuned...)

    And that's an understatement.
    I hope Colin sues the crap out of them.

    Your best bet would be to read these, which should give you enough information about the questions you're asking.

    That's absolutely shocking that Colin is in the photo. They're only doing it because of his recent increased profile in the jungle and therefore hoping to boost circulation.

    Colin Baker on Twitter this morning said he was considering legal action over that headline and picture. I don't blame him.

    How can the Mirror claim this as an "exclusive" when they just massively dumbed down a book review already published in the Guardian?

    Scumbags.
    Dennis, Francois, Melba and Smasher are competing to see who can wine and dine Lola Whitecastle and win the contract to write her memoirs. Can Dennis learn how to be charming? Can Francois concentrate on anything else when food is on the table? Will Smasher keep his temper under control?

    If only the 28th century didn't keep popping up to get in Dennis's way...
