In My Own Words:
I work for the BBC and I also work in a doctor's surgery. My partner is Robert and although he doesn't like Queen and Dad's Army, I still love him.

I'm beyond excited at receiving this in the post today. A Carry On film looking better than ever! Chances are you are having a better quality viewing experience than those who saw it at the cinema in the '60s. More please!

I bought this off Amazon because I couldn't find it any shops anywhere. It arrived promptly and in excellent condition. The Blu-rays themselves are OK. Excellent sound and picture quality but NO extras on Star Trek and very few extras on Star Trek Into Darkness. As for the films themselves, the first one is the best. The second one somewhat unnecessarily rehashes the old Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan plot. Why? Just do something new for gawd's sake! Aside from that quibble, the gang are on fine form and Benedict Cumberbatch is very, very good (as one would expect).

I got hold of this on the day of release and have been listening in the car. Much has been said of this album since its orignal release, so I won't add to that too much. This album was much criticised upon its original release over 20 years ago. Following his triumphant debut solo, Viva Hate and the amazing compilation, Bona Drag this must have seemed somewhat disappointing; running at just over half an hour and taking on board Fairground Attraction's Mark Nevin as co-writer and guitarist. It's also the only album in his canon to use Madness producers Langer/Winstanley. (Even Bedders & Woody are in Moz's band for this one).
