Successful series

British TV series The Thick of It is getting good reviews in Australia (e.g. here). The good news for fans is that there will be a film version, and another series, but without Chris Langham, who spent some time in jail after the original series was filmed for possessing child p-rnography. It all came a shock to me, because Langham was the first celebrity I ever interviewed - way back when I was a uni student and he was a star of Not the Nine O'Clock News, a writer for The Muppet Show and one of the giggling guards in Monty Python's Life of Brian.
