- 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!

Don't think there's going to be any problem keeping this threwd going over Christmas is there?

I think that there is in fact only one episode of HUTH because every time I watch it's the same one, Dave from Huddersfield who looks like an amateur but is an experienced developer and his wonky end terrace with the blue kitchen.

I have just looked at my calendar and realised with horror that I am not going to be able to watch any of the episodes live this week - I'm working two longer days instead of my usual three mornings and helping in school on the other three afternoons. Boo!

Haha, I remember all these programmes from mat leave, before DD was old enough to demand Ceebeebies and Disney Jr.

DD will only be doing one full day next term, plus 2 mornings, so unfortunately I will only have the luxury of the TV to myself once a week. I plan to make the most of it! She's broken up for Christmas now, so I won't get a moment to watch daytime TV until January.

Can't abide This Morning any day of the week - Phil Smarmy Schofield makes my stomach churn. Love HUTH! Is Heir Hunters still on? You can smell the desperation in those blokes through the TV screen. They must work solely on commission. I like The Wright Stuff, Sparkling, I manage to catch that some mornings when DD is at pre-school, although as you say it depends on the panellists. Some are shockingly bad.

We will have no problem keeping this thread going over Christmas - we all like the same crap! grin

Meant to say, apart from MsN, who lets the side down with her Jeremy Kyle obsession.

Terrywoganstrousers Sun 16-Dec-12 21:31:38

I love the camp man on Dickinson's Real Deal!!
I literally cannot stop laughing the whole time he is on!

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 21:36:58


I may even look into how I can get tickets to be in the audience so I can see him in the flesh.


MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 21:38:43

That was tickets to see JK btw, not the camp man on DRDeal.

Terrywoganstrousers Sun 16-Dec-12 21:38:59

Ian Townley, his name is

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Dec-12 21:39:34

Thought you wanted to see mahogany face in the flesh for a minute MsN. grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Dec-12 21:44:36

Camp man on DRD

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 21:48:45

Sparkling I am not that desperate yet . Give it a bit more time and I would date a Hobbit though.

MrsMaggot Sun 16-Dec-12 21:55:35

I tried to get jk tickets years ago and they never got back to me the swines !

Probably had more luck if i needed a dna test!

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 22:03:16

Really, MrsMaggot? How disappointing.

I couldn't be on the stage. I have all my own teeth and don't shout.


BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 22:19:38

Where do they film Jeremy Kyle? I used to live in Norwich where they filmed Vanessa and Tricia. They were absolutely desperate for audience members, and would regularly phone up workplaces and try and persuade people off the street to go in, especially when they had a coachload not turn up / be delayed. I've watched quite a few of those in the past when I've had nothing better to do.

Actually, I must just look like a likely audience member - twice in New York I've been pulled off the street to watch a show being filmed. Once at the Rockerfeller Centre (Oprah-style show but not as famous) and once for the David Letterman show.

MrsMaggot Sun 16-Dec-12 22:25:17

I have a feeling it is filmed in maidstone, if its not jk something is def filmed there.

Im quite pleased i didn't get tickets id have prob got kicked out for heckling !

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 22:26:35

I expect MsN is currently busy looking up the coach timetable for Maidstone as we speak! wink

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 22:30:55

It's filmed in Manchester now so very near me. Not that I've been checking out the 'how to apply for JK tickets' website or anything hmm

Trisha was crap. People banging on them flimsy metal doors and sat on cheapo chairs. And don't get me started on the body language experts.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sun 16-Dec-12 22:32:16

Never been in an audience. My house was on a TV makeover show once though <embarassed>

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 22:34:55

Each applicant allocated an audience ticket agrees to be available to attend at an address in Manchester (to be provided) and to appear in the audience for the Programme and to being filmed during the Programme on the agreed date and time in ITV’s discretion

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 22:36:34

Ohhhhhhhhh, tell us more WhoKnows (only if you want).

Was it 60 Minute Makeover? Did you get to see her with the big shiny teeth?

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 22:37:59

Do you live there in order to be close to JK, MsN? shock

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 22:38:40

Oh WhoKnows - we have to know more!

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sun 16-Dec-12 22:47:56

It was before we bought it, we had just been to view it and remarked that one room was somewhat "Changing Rooms" - this was about 12 years ago, so we are talking marble effect paint, lots of stencilling etc. Anyway, about a week later a trailer came on for a TV makeover programme (low budget local one, vaguely recognizable daytime TV presenter whose name eludes me) from "Town we were moving to" - I looked up and said "Fuck me that's that house we looked at last week" or words to that effect. We video-ed it and now have it saved on DVD.

Needless to say we re-decorated fairly promptly but a few traces remain <gazes fondly at ceiling rose>

MsNobodyAgain Sun 16-Dec-12 22:55:18

Biscuit maybe I do. <whistles innocently>

Who nowt wrong with a good ceiling rose. My old Victorian Terrace had lovely cornices and ceiling roses. Now I live in a modern magnolia box. Meh!

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Dec-12 13:44:56

Hello all. i am watching live after missing all of last week. Hope I can keep up.....

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Dec-12 13:47:41

Santa's slipped a disc. <arf>
