TV: L is for...

Lingo

L! I! N! G! O! ran the sub-Ottawan theme tune to this half-remembered, half-arsed bingo-based Thursday night quiz, fronted by MARK “SON OF ROY” WALKER in a Top Man collarless suit. Lots of pulling out balls from pots and grids. Summer replacement for THE KRYPTON FACTOR. Probably.

    If it was a summer replacement for KF, then what was it doing airing on Thursday nights instead of Monday nights?

    Anyway, Central dropped it after one series, but Thames picked it up the following year and installed Martin Daniels as host – making it probably the only game show to have had two hosts who were sons of even more famous hosts.
