So there is this footballer named Stephen Ireland, and last weekend he scored a goal, and promptly dropped his shorts to reveal Superman Underwear[1] I know, not a good move, but you know, worse things happen at sea. There was the Titanic incident, crappy film or what? In response to Ireland’s celebration many of the papers have been giving out.

Look, this is a new series with a vampire detective, so I hereby promise that there will be many and varied references to how much I miss Angel[1] but it does have Jason Dohring, so I’m keeping an open mind.

I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed it, so I wasn’t too sure if I’d enjoy the film. You know the way they always change stuff. But I try to pretend that it is a brand new story and not based on any book, course that doesn’t always work, but I do try. Anyway, I’m happy to

So there I was, flicking around this afternoon when I came across No Such Thing.
