This year's TV annuals - now unavailable!

Well, after a plea for suggestions on the Twitter, here's this year's selection of annuals based on current TV shows. 

I had over a hundred replies. A lot of them repeated the same ones and some included old TV shows despite my request for current ones to get the treatment. (THREE requests for Howards Way!!!). 

Obviously not used all of them. Not because they aren't good ideas in themselves but I also have to take into account the availability of images and also how amusing the final product will look. 

Particularly pleased with the Very English Scandal and Countryfile ones. The former shows that you can take a selection of images from any TV show and completely change the concept of the show with the right (or wrong!) branding. The Countryfile one is, though I say so myself, a nice piece of work but that's only because it looks so much like the original Brilliant Book of Doctor Who. And the title "Countryfile" can easily be made to fit the "Doctor DW Who" logo of recent years. Not many show's titles could do that. 

Thanks to everyone who took the trouble to reply. I'm sorry but I can't return any but there isn't a prize for all those that I show.

The Very Best of BBC DVDs...

A Twitter comment about the blandness of early BBC DVD branding prompted someone to recall the "Best of Doctor Who" DVD covers I did a few years ago. That post is here.

So realising that the original gag hadn't gone far enough, I did some broader versions of them with other subjects. I think the joke has finally worn a bit thin now.
