It's time for bed

Good God.

Seriously, I heard ages ago that they were making a film of The Magic Roundabout, but I didn't think it'd be this bad. I loved that programme as a kid, and one of the things that always appealed about it was its weird but sweet pastoral quality, which certainly seems to have been thrown out here. Horrible computer animation? Dylan doing Matrix-style martial arts? No Florence? This is a travesty! And what's worse, it seems to miss the point of the original. Which would never have allowed Robbie Williams anywhere near it.

See I was confused by the non appearance of Florence, because she is there and being played by Kylie.

Bill Nighy is a good choice for Dillon, though.

Did I ever thank you for the piece about bookshops you wrote? I think that, in the midst of the general clamour that is my life, I forgot to. Nice work...
