We’re billing this series again because it continues to surprise us, not least in last week’s Halloween Special when top Creamer Ed Petrie announced his most memorable bit of spooky telly was only bloody Ghostwatch – and they showed a load of clips from it! Wow! Let’s hope it put the willies up today’s kids just as much as it did those of a generation ago. We love hearing Cream-era stuff being explained to an audience of baffled kids so let’s hope this series runs and runs.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
“Need money for food? Eat your fucking dog!” This biopic of Tommy Cooper tells perhaps a familiar story, fitting right into the tears-behind-the-laughter template we’ve come to expect from this kind of thing, but apparently David Threlfall’s performance as the man himself is a tour de force, and with Simon Nye on scripting duties we’re sure it’s going to be well worth watching. It does go right up to the end, and the cast list does include actors portraying Les Dennis and Dustin Gee.
