We watched some of One Man, Two Guvners. I don't know whether it doesn't translate to TV or is just rubbish, but it was rubbish.
You were probably expecting it to be as good as the car insurance adverts, and bound to be disappointed.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

There is apparently a 50 page document due today, that is supposed to provide the more specific, detailed guidance. It would have been sensible to use a moment in yesterday's address to point people towards it.
