Big Bother

I'm not sure this is quite what the BBC intended, but last night I decided I should make the effort to watch a little of Big Brother in preparation for this weekend's Doctor Who episode.

Ye gods, but this year's housemates are a bunch of petty and characterless individuals, aren't they? Admittedly, I was watching the live feed on E4, so it wasn't edited to present the most interesting moments, but still. One lot were sitting around in some kind of conservatory, bitching about the washing up, while another lot were in the kitchen, telling each other to stop singing. Living on my own as I do, I can usually tolerate the most tedious dross for the sake of some background babble... but this got switched off within ten minutes.

I wonder if the BBC made their own set for the Doctor Who story, or paid Channel 4 for the use of theirs? Perhaps this will become obvious on Saturday. I'm betting the BBC would have preferred to hire, and I should think Channel 4 would have been happy to take both the money and the publicity, assuming that the show isn't too roundly trashed.
