This infuriates me: every now and again UK TV says it's adopting the US writers' room system, but it's like they only listen to half what that is. US writers are on staff of a show, they're part of it. Here, writers just get ordered in like stationery.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion" is extremely well done from a writers' perspective. Every episode analysed in detail and including the episode writers saying things like "What were we thinking?" Feels very honest about failures and successes and the reasons for both.

We will eat ourselves alive arguing about tiers and who should be in which, and what the compensations should be, etc, and forget that the virus is rising in every part of the country, and we need measures which will definitely, not maybe, work. We could use a leader right now.

Funny how we can trick ourselves into thinking £99 is a bargain. I couldn't justify spending £300 on another full-size HomePod, but I catch myself thinking about getting three HomePod minis.

Thank you for a really interesting and insightful chat with about writing for TV - not to mention all the bigging up of Brum. It's also led me to discover the YouTube channel, so that's me sorted for the rest of the day...
