The devil is in...

the detail. No, actually, he is in Holby City, if I am not mistaken. Whilst in the gym last night Holby City was on one of the TVs and one of the doctors was played by the actor who played Jonathan the warm-up man and the devil in Jerry Springer The Opera, both when it was shown on TV and when we saw it at 'The National' (as we weasels like to call it).

And what better TV show for the devil to appear on? I can think of only one better place - the ITV News Channel, where the presenters have that look of purgatory about them. In particular, Angela Rippon appears in the mornings at the weekend with a distinct 'if only I had invested my money better I could be having a nice lie-in now' look all over her face.

Though, having seen an episode of the current series of Enterprise I am not surprised. t__m__i described it as Babylon 5 costumes and Holby City plots which is about the size of it I would say.
