Tim Wonnacott, oh how I miss your dulcet tones.

Hello,

Mr Raymond Ving here again. You may remember me from a previous column about some nonsense that riled me for a while.

Anyway, you may have noticed that the BBC is no longer playing episodes of Antiques Roadtrip. I know, it really is dreadful, isn't it? Who doesn't like a pair of mismatched eccentrics going all over the country in an old car, buying old things no one really needs?

I know I like it, but these days the BBC is playing wall to wall football and tennis, and I know that there is an audience for it, but it is not the same. Now, if Tim Wonnacott put some mindless bantering commentary behind it, and laughed at his own jokes, that would help to repair some of the damage.

I know that I could watch Love Island or Naked Attraction, but Mavis doesn't like that type of thing.

Toodle Pip.
