In related news, the BBC has announced that it intends to throw a lead balloon off the back of a failing bandwagon, and broadcast the result in 3-D.
Or to put it another way, I share the general 'Meh!' to this news.
I'd be alright with the news if the special had been 90 minutes. As it is, it appears that the special is only 60 minutes because of this. If true, it's a shame. And, it's not the brightest of decisions if the budget is so tight!
