Good morning from the coffee shop. I am, so far, resisting the siren call of the croissant and bacon butty. It is still January after all and efforts are still being made to keep excess under control. And tonight I'm at the Radio Times covers party where doubtless food stuffs are offered which won't be in the 5-a-day category, so I'm trying to start the day properly. The RT do is-clearly-people who've been on the cover so I'm not sure why Mark Kermode and I are invited as our James Bond feature was on the inside pages. Maybe we'll add just a touch of rebellion and glamour. Or maybe Prof Brian Cox can't make it. Either way I've had to cancel the Costa Book Award do (oh my showbiz life) so will not be mixing with the literati this year-I'm sure they'll cope.

Meantime the show needs making. And today the other Brian Cox (I shan't introduce him as such). The Brian Cox who is the noted Scottish RSC actor, the Brian Cox who was the first actor to play Hannibal Lecter and the Brian Cox who is currently back on TV and on his home patch of Dundee in Bob Servant. Brian after 6...

And oldies please for THE HIGH SPEED TRAIN. All the plans were announced yesterday and the news and papers are full of maps and reports about who will be affected. And lots of folk who thought it was a fine idea until they realised it was going through their garden. Or estate.

Have a mild and calm Tuesday, see you after 5.

    #138 LOL! Yes, I've just read that too, Florence. It also explains Shona's query at #132.

    Wish the new blog would hurry up and arrive. I can't settle till it's here...

    Simon has tweeted "Hair wax being tested by Heathrow security." It sounds like he's going to Glasgow the long way round!!!

    #133 It's all a matter of personal preference - I love going to the cinema (promised myself I'll go more often this year) and I enjoy a 'far fetched' film every now and then.

    But then we're all different... and that's what makes this blog so interesting!

    :o)

    I'd need my own set of headphones to plug into my seat so that all I could hear would be the film - actually, that's not a bad idea.......looks up pat pending website ;0))

    Here's an admission - I haven't been to the cinema/'pictures' for a good few years. The last film I saw in such a place was Apocalypse Now - late70's/early 80's? I can't abide the 'noises off' in the cinema, where everyone has to eat, crunch, talk etc etc (and mobile phones weren't about then so goodness only knows what I'd think now with Tweeters and texters etc!!

    #128 Katy.... I agree completely about not wanting to see any of those over-hyped films (too far-fetched)... I know Les Mis has had a lot of publicity, but it's an exception as it's a great musical.

    Ooh I thought London City flew into Dundee. They must have spread their wings to land at Glasgow now as well. ;0)

    We saw Oliver last week - with Neil Morrissey. It was brilliant. And the choir I'm in is doing a selection from the musicals including Cabaret.
