Rubbish ITV Melkur Sit-coms...

I tend to shy away from doing other folks' suggestions as they are often impossible to realise with the imagery available to me or... well, they just aren't funny enough to grab my funnybone. 

But having been challenged to join in the mischief created in a Twitter thread by @2hrTV following a plea from @The_Cybermatt to Terrance Dicks to stop using the word Melkur in his chapter titles for the novelisation of Doctor Who and the Keeper of Traken (!), I couldn't resist knocking up some visuals for Melkur ITV sitcoms... as you do. 

They're all based on Network DVD covers... and I've included a Frankie Howerd one at @2hrTV's request... 

The posting of these on Twitter has resulted in me being barraged with lists of other rubbish ITV sit-coms with the word Melkur added. 

You can understand how even the funniest joke can wear very thin after a short period of time. 

But then again, that's Twitter humour for you...

(A warning was also received from reader @Gary_Gillat that it does not become us to mock the Melkur. Point taken. I will stop.)

Columbo in Space Again!!

Yes. I've done Columbo in Space before. An off-the-wall piece with pics depicting the rarely seen crossover episode that the shabby but brilliant detective had with Space 1999 based on a Japanese graphic novel thing I couldn't translate. 


The recent space rocket publicity launch by Elon Musk (I'm sure that's a 70s eau de toilette brand) made me return to the subject in an effort to get a handful of titters. 

Money for old rope... or something more sinister? You decide.
