The previous day, the sci-fi series Torchwood (1 July, 2.15pm, Radio 4) had settled in for an hour about a girl called Frieda, who didn't have any T-cells ("Her blood chemistry is just bizarre!"). A visitor from the future, Frieda turned out to be part-German, part-alien, and had really fond memories of her nan (boiling tins of Carnation milk on the stove? There wasn't much time for detail before the shit hit the fan).

I'm all for the pulchritudinous John Barrowman, but did the BBC really have to bleed this series into the radio, too? And can't something be done about the horribly defensive way it keeps reminding us it's all taking place in Wales ("Make us a cup of tea, Gwen")?

I must admit to a more than passing interest in the TV series ever since I recognised an old acquaintance, a Japanese actress who lived above a fish shop on the Essex Road. I immediately texted our mutual friend Marcus.

"Is that Naoko on Bbc 2" "Yes" "excellent. the american is buff no?" "yes." "hes so hot" "yes. And extremely gay." "really? oh i see what you mean. typical"

"I know. The lord giveth. and the lord taketh away."
