Life on Mars – Heaven or Hell

camberwick-green.jpgSo Life on Mars has came to its spectacular conclusion and after many twists and turns in the story, all has become clear.

However, as Sam Tyler sheds this mortal coil in the last show and returns to his old police chums – we are left with one inescapable question.

Is Manchester in 1973 Heaven or Hell?

Last of the Summer Car Reviews

top_gear_summer_wine1.jpgHas anyone noticed how Top Gear is turning into Last of the Summer Wine?

Three old chums, who should know better, fooling around in the countryside for comic effect.

All they need is a laughter track and Nora Batty’s tights and the transition will be complete.

Green is the new sexy

Tesla RoadsterChanging all your light bulbs, lagging your hot water tank and getting a bus to work, while beneficial for the environment, is not exactly sexy stuff. However the Tesla Roadster is about to change all this.

0-60 in 4 seconds at 135 mpg effectively combines the performance of a Lamborghini with the fuel consumption of a scooter.

Oh yes, it doesn’t look too bad either.

David Walliams – Sports Personality of the Year, 2006

David WalliamsDavid Walliams star has risen.

We’re big fans of Little Britain but as with most double acts there has to be a funny one and there has to be a Frankie Howerd.

However David Walliams achievement to swim the channel (the 50th fastest ever), raise the odd million for good causes and then talk about it in such an understated way has launched him into the fermament.

So when it comes to sporting acheivement and personality – there can only be one person to consider this year.
