1. You guys were right. I just went downstairs and found Bunny inside the walls of Fort Bunsworth. Damn and blast! Now I'm going to have to figure out a way of strengthening the defences.

2. It's nice to be able to report that Blackadder II is still very, very funny. What would it cost to assemble that cast today? And, on a sadly quizzical note, whatever happened to Rowan Atkinson? There he was, arguably the funniest man in the English speaking world- and what has he done since?

Johnny English? well yes, quite...

3. I love Rome, but does anybody else? There was a piece in the Guardian this morning calling it a turkey and castigating the BBC for wasting the licence-payers' money. And this seems to be the general opinion. Could I be wrong? No, I don't see how that could possibly be- my critical acumen and good taste are legendary.

I loved Johnny English, predictably - I was quite moved by the character's awareness that he was a bit of a sad case and determination to get the job done anyway, and his ferocious patriotism. But he's not done a lot else. I thought Mr Bean was a waste, since although he has an impressively funny face it's his voice and delivery I'm always tickled by.

I guess he's done a lot of different things- more TV, bit parts in Richard Curtis movies, roles in Hollywood comedies that no-one in their right mind would pay to watch, but it's like there's no sense of purpose or direction. Blackadder was his career high point- and that's 20 years ago now.
