- sit on the lap of the character of your choice. (I think you'll find Kevins is already taken). grin

- get a home visit. (Almost guaranteed whatever your ailment)

- have Jimmi, Heston or practically anyone else provide free detective work.

...or you could just wait around to be screamed at by Gobby.

How can you resist? grin

To explain to any newbies <arf>, this is a very friendly thread that welcomes any fans of the afternoon soap called 'Doctors'.

I'll post the list of commonly used acronyms in a minute but they aren't compulsory, honest!

Not yet, Sparkling. It is this week! <ridiculously excited>

Do you think it's a murder mystery Christmas do Biscuit?

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 15:36:26

I hope so! Either that or one of their fantasy episodes. A bit of extra WTF for our Christmas treat!

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 16:35:59

Good resolution Horsemad.

Biscuit a full day at pre school. Yay!

I may miss Mondays live due to an appointment. Gah! Tuesday is bingo. Wednesday is looking dodgy... Damn!

Horsemad Sun 16-Dec-12 16:56:43

Biscuit you'll be able to start off with Heir Hunters, then Homes Under The Hammer - break for an hour for a bit of respite (missing that Gloria Hunniford prog about trading standards or whatever it is... and also Cash In The Attic). Then onto Bargain Hunt, BBC News & Doctors, followed by Escape to the Country if it's on grin

Biscuit Don't watch This Morning on a Friday. Bloody Eamonn Doughface Holmes and his wife.

The Wright Stuff (Channel 5 9.15am) is good for a laugh, depending on what dopey panellists are on. Clashes with Jeremy Kyle though.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:13:54

Did someone mention Jeremy Kyle? grin

I won't be watching him next week. It is all Xmas specials. Can't be doing with it.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:15:45

Escape to the Country makes me irrationally irritable for some reason they have more money than me

Jeremy Kyle Christmas Special? confused Is Santa going to be on for a DNA test?

Don't bother with the Mel Sykes lunchtime thingy. All prerecorded in August from what I can gather and Gino D'Campo is well annoying.

Escape to the Country is really depressing. They always have fussy buggers with loads of money on. And you never know whether they bought it or not. angry

Sparkling I know- the en suite bathrooms are usually bigger than my house, but it's never enough. They never buy-like 'Escape to the sun'or whatever itwas called- just a jolly at the expense of the BBC. Ditto, 'Wanted Down Under'.

Over the past 2 and a half years, I have become an expert on daytime tv.

Heir Hunters cracks me up. It is a 5 minute programme,stretched out to an hour. And they are little more than ambulance chasersgrin With Lisa Faulkner sounding ever more hysterical by the tedium as it progresses.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:33:24

<arf> at Santa DNA test. Unfortunately he transforms into his do gooder alter ego so it gives me nothing to point and laugh at. sad

Dickinsons Real Deal was worth a watch but I think they altered the time.

Heir Hunters is very odd Raahh. Lots of sitting in cars and wild goose chases. Then knocking on doors before any other Heir Hunter gets there. Tis weird.

I had to stop watching Wanted Down Under I was so cross. The best bit was the value of their houses in the UK (watching their faces drop) and the awful houses they could afford over there. Neighbours it wasn't. grin

Some of the 'experts' on Dickinsons Real Deal' are um, interesting. grin

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:37:29

Wanted Down Under generally showed a family with a DH that wanted to emigrate and a DW that didn't.

Always confused me when people wanted to emigrate somewhere they hadn't visited!

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:39:05

Sparkling are you referring to the chap with an accent, an open shirt and lots of jewellery? He is weird!

Possibly MsN, a bit effeminate?

WDO was ridiculous. The crying over the DVD of the family back home was just awful.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:43:08

'A bit effeminate'. Understatement of the year grin

I was trying to be nice. grin Most of the experts come across as being totally uninterested in the offerings don't they? Then old mahogany face appears and it 'goes to Oction' as he says. And gets less than the expert offered. <arf>

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 17:54:14

Mahogany face grin

Horsemad Sun 16-Dec-12 17:56:31

I hate HUTH when they buy to let and only do the minimum required for a refurb sad

Much prefer when they are going to live in it themselves and do a lovely job!

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 18:04:05

Best bit about HUTH is seeing how bad the bloke presenters hair is that day.

(I have suddenly realised I need to get out more). blush

I like it when the blonde lady gets all cross because the buyers haven't looked inside. grin

OodKingWenceslas Sun 16-Dec-12 19:54:08

I love HUTH , we watched it religiously when I was off with dd3. It became her nap time. I want to work on Heir hunters cos I'm nosy

we3kingsoforientRaahh Sun 16-Dec-12 20:00:46

They are such scruffs, the blokes on Heir Hunters. Like they failed to make it as used car salesmen,or loan sharks grin.
