TV: B is for...

Bonny

SUPERGRAN-ESQUE YARNS of mild-mannered Scottish postwoman who writes adventure stories which, conveniently for television, “come to life”. Last episode featured entire cast sitting down to watch “themselves” on TV, Russell Harty-like.

    I have a vague memory of an episode with a big chase through Television Centre (or Queen Margaret Drive mocked up to look like it?) where they ran through a series of studios (well, Blue Peter’s at any rate, causing the ship to fall off the wall and Bonny – Una McLean wasn’t it? – to yell out “Sorry John, Pete and Lesley!” as they were running past…)

    Looks like this was the post-modern, self-referential episode in question: http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/986dcad6012f4a1cbde12d3e64d3de95
