Hazel Irvine's on crack - 'this gives James Bond, Mr Bean and the Queen a run for their money'.

Seriously - were the BBC given a script and told to keep to it no matter how crap?

You know, in this instance I think we could have let Muse do one from the back catalogue.

I think my brain just melted during that sequence! The Indian dancing sequence was just awkward! Besides, are we now claiming Indian music as British as well? Raj-tastic! Now the mental Muse song. Matt Bellamy song-writing on sackfuls of Columbia's finest whilst channeling Charlie Sheen.

This Gavin chap hasn't got a bloody clue how to run a show.

Or, more importantly, how to end one.
