About me

So that’s it then!

Just under two years after Christopher Price’s tragic death, Liquid News has finally died. Just when Claudia and Paddy were beginning to make it all better again.

Still, the presenters’ and crews’ general displeasure at the axing was cheerily noticeable, with the “Liquid News Helpline” strap (“We haven’t got enough money left for a box of tissues, let alone a sodding helpline. Pull yourself together”), the redubbing of the Kill Bill clip to Kill Stuart (the BBC Three controller), and the “We really shouldn’t tell you this, but the money for the LA satellite feed ran out three weeks ago so all the ‘Latest’ news we’ve been bringing you from Hollywood over the last month was actually filmed in February”.

At least they went with dignity, dedicating the programme to Christopher and reshowing the tribute to him right after.

But that’s it. The end of Liquid. It makes me want to cry. And Christopher Price dying was a WHOLE lot more tragic than the Feeder drummer.

I’m off to sulk now (whilst also looking forward to the new extended 7 O’Clock News in May and, on a completely different topic, GMail. And if you’re expecting me to expand on either of those, you’re about to be disappointed. But please, for the sake of us all, keep your hamster away from the printer.
