Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

More Valentino

One of my earliest video efforts, using Eliza's pictures. The music just seemed so appropriate.

Still can't believe Ray Davies played it at Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Silver Jubilee.

The Velocity of Gary

A change from the usual film still - a video of the D'Elicious Mr D'Onofrio, alias Valentino, snogging everyone that moves.

Only 68,000+ views on YouTube...

A Cop Programme in Search of a Hero

Taggart is the strangest cop show in the history of the genre. Set in Glasgow, and first broadcast in 1983 with Mark McManus as the dour detective, the last episode of Taggart was broadcast less than 3 years ago - even though McManus died in 1994!

I was a great fan throughout its lengthy run, with two other senior detectives taking over the team, but under their "own" names. Taggart himself was as dead as McManus.

From quite early on there was a regular female character, but despite the promotion of male cops around her, she never made it above Detective Sergeant. In 20 bloody years!

It's gone now. Why it was called Taggart probably puzzled younger viewers. TV producers, eh?

Let's suck something

Can't think what. Nothing as small as that button nose...

Reality Check Needed

Every other crime show has a devilish bank robbery as its major crime, often with hostage situations in there with the robbery.

Is there really that much bank robbery going on in the US? 'Cos I can't remember that last time there was one in the UK.

Have we made it so difficult the crooks no longer even try? And if we have, maybe our friends across the Pond should have a look at what we're doing right for once!
