Our Sky+ box seems to be on the way out. It's been playing up since before Christmas - freezing, seeming to record and then saying that it has failed, etc. We've been on the phone about 3 times to technical support and we're getting quite good at housekeeping, but it's okay for a while and then starts playing up again.

As a result not only did it fail to record BSG & Stargate last week, it also failed to record the repeats. Oh yes, and failed to record CSI & Sea of Souls as well.

Last night, because we were watching them 'real time' it, of course, was fine recording Time Team and Smallville. Sigh.

I gather the hard disks tend to go on these after a while. I'm hoping not to have to pay out for a replacement, but it's on the way...

One of the British TV channels starts to run Bones next week. Is it worth watching? I know [livejournal.com profile] bibliofile watches it - any comments? Am I going to find it deeply annoying for its lack of resemblence to the books?

Sad news...

...for British fans of a certain age. Michael Sheard, Doctor Who regular, Star Wars Darth Vader victim, Grange Hill's most feared staff member and general Convention Tart has died at the age of 65 from cancer.

For many people it was Grange Hill's Mr Bronson that people most remember him for but for me it is his turn as Lawrence Scarman in the Doctor Who story The Pyramids of Mars (possibly my favourite story) that I will remember him for.
