I went in five charity shops today and I saw Tony Parson's 'Man and Boy' in every single one!

The woman who played Mrs Doyle - Pauline McLynn? And the one out of Mel and Sue who had a baby - must be Mel. Saw a few of theirs too.

I always seem to spot Ulrika-ka-ka's autobiography.

I also look out for recurring cd's - mostly those D/Mail freebies it seems.
