Brace yourselves, I'm on telly this afternoon

Earlier this month I was interviewed on camera for a light-hearted documentary called The Perfect TV Detective. The show was screened by BBC2 on Monday night and gets repeated this afternoon [from 2 or 2.30 pm, I think]. Tune in if you wish to see me as one of numerous talking heads discussing television detectives through the ages. Let's face it, how often do you get to share screen time with Helen Mirren, John Nettles and Colin Dexter?

I'd redirect those who miss the show to the BBC's wonderful iPlayer service, but The Perfect TV Detective doesn't seem to be available there. Such is life. Right, I'm off to the wilds of Bristol for New Year's Eve, so have a happy and safe Hogmanay. We'll talk again once it's 2009. Onwards!

I found it very interesting especially as I want to create my own police series. It gave me permission to concentrate on the characters and stories and not worry so much on getting the exact procedure right. If Morse can get away with it...

I was innocently watching TV when this bloke started talking and his name looked strangely familiar.

"I read his blog." I said to the wife and daughter. "Oh." They said, disinterestedly.

Such is life.

For trivia buffs - the prog will then feature two ex- Meg editors - Alan Barnes being the other.

I got it on www.thebox.bz and quite enjoyed it. David didn't get as much time as some but that was due to Colin Dexter showing up and hogging the Morse segments.
