LAST NIGHT'S VIEW.
Either that or Babes In The Wood (ITV) has run out of fresh ideas. The girls fell back on the kind of animal cruelty gags that propelled Gareth and Norman to fame 10 years ago.
A sweet kitten called Colin was thrown across the room, considered as a microwave meal and knocked off a window ledge not once but twice.
It must have used up most of its nine lives in the pet shop because although it survived the first fall it never recovered from the second.
If Rolf Harris was watching he would have been horrified, even though the moggie was given a proper funeral.
"It was a very touching ceremony. I've never seen a coffin with a cat- flap before," remarked Charlie (Karl Howman).
I've never seen a joke dragged out so long. The rest of the programme was devoted to the return of Charlie's ex-wife Angela, played by Glynis Barber, last seen as a gun-toting cop in the Eighties action series Dempsey And Makepeace. All she had to do was look blowsy and laugh out loud a lot. We are talking deadbeat and makeshift.
LADY Tara (Anna Brecon) finally accepted Lord Michael's (Malcolm Stoddard) proposal of marriage in Emmerdale (ITV).
"All you will ever know for every second of the rest of your life is my love. Nothing will ever hurt you again. Oh my love, my own perfect love," he whispered. Mills & Boon must be supplying his script.
