My wife is transfixed by the Archers. 7pm is the one part of the day when she stops, sits still and listens, glass in hand. She found the death of Nigel truly sad. But life goes on. She's currently clearing out the cupboards, having read that that is a good way to stave off the winter blues. Her view is that if one keeps oneself busy one hasn't time to worry about the politics of envy. And just general tittle-tattle per se.

As a schoolboy actor on the RSC stage in Stratford: here I remember Judi well. Brilliant. I acted in the 'Merry Wives of Windsor' with Brenda Bruce, Liz Spriggs and Judi's brother Jeff Dench. Of course, seeing a young Helen Mirren stepping dishabille from the shower was one of the biggest thrills for me as a twelve-yr-old. Marvellous times.

For Tesco, history began when Jack Cohen returned from the First World War and invested £30 on a surplus food stall in London's East End. Cohen consolidated his initial small-scale success by joining forces with T.E. Stockwell, and the name Tesco was born. The first shop with "Tesco" emblazoned above the window was opened in 1929.
But even Tesco's so-called 'Finest' range is barely edible. Which is why we shop at Waitrose. And always have done.
