Is there going to be another series next year?.

The feeling is that it's become a bit "same old same old" and I believe there are plans for it to be replaced by Melksham 24/7 - Graham can you confirm this?  Smiley

Funnily enough  Grin Grin .. I was ealier writing about the need to take a break from things - under the daily campaigning tip that I launched this morning at .  That particular tip is scheduled to go live around next weekend.

Diane Abbott has put in a bid for her local station too - Hackney Central 25/8.

This could be an interesting series. I guess it all depends how much footage they got pre pandemic. A bit like the recent Ritz hotel documentary there won?t be a huge amount of interesting stories post March to record.

Interesting that some of the stories seemed more up to date

I noticed that they didn't blur the date clock at the Swindon office in this episode (showed 31st July)
Also the QPR match was September 5th 2020

Just watched it. As interesting as ever, though I wonder how the TV team(s) seem to be on hand for so many incidents. Also nostalgic, as I haven't been to Paddington since November. I was a little surprised to see it was quite busy.

I've only just got around to watching the first episode but I was surprised as well by how many people were travelling. The hot weather incident seemed to be end of July and I guess that was the point the government was telling us all to go back to work.

I did find that now I'm not travelling I was able to enjoy it much more as 'television' rather than worrying about my commute, timelines or even how the incidents were presented.

Much less shouting at the screen according to my other half.
