Andy 'Bodger' Cunningham from Bodger and Badger has died.

Used to love that show as a kid. And have loved mashed potatoes ever since.

RIP - they don't make shows like that anymore.

Kids are really missing out these days. I remember Bodger and Badger from when I was a kid (I think we're the same age RCS) and because the character was called Simon it was my fave programme.

Devastating news this.

I think we're all roughly the same age. Even at 33, just a couple of weeks ago, the theme tune still randomly pops into my head and I'll find myself humming if it.

Remember Press Gang when I was very young. Mainly because it had Dexter Fletcher in it. Just seen it was, surprisingly, the first thing written by Stephen Moffat (I've been working my way through Coupling on Netflix lately as I missed most of them when they were on TV 15 odd years ago).
