In the spirit of the socialising Tour participants on their last day's riding, join me in Ashley and Neely's Social Sunday:
Q: What was your favourite show as a kid?
A: A while ago I was talking about how, being a South African, I didn't really watch an awful lot of TV as a kid. So I will go for a couple of things I used to love as a young teenager: Doctor Who (I had the long scarf doctor, Tom Baker), The Kenny Everett Show and a show that I would love to see again as an adult because I think I will be shocked, The Goodies.
Q: What is your current favourite TV show?
A: What, do you mean right this second? As I sit here watching SYTYCD? I'd be tempted to say SYTYCD. Everyone knows the acronym don't they? But there is a lot of good television these days. I have to watch the following from whoa-to-go again because shift work messes up every type of schedule ever: Hannibal (stunning, stunning marcarbeness), Elementary (damn thing grew on me) and The Following (turns out episode twelve wasn't, as we thought, the finale—lucky, in a way, because it was strangely anti-climatic).
Q: What reality show would you NEVER do?
A: There are many I really wouldn't watch, but I would never do any of the 'love' ones. No Bachelorette, no Dating in the Dark, no Farmer wants a Wife.
Q: What reality show would you LOVE to do?
A: It never did that well here, but I would have loved to do The Renovators. Otherwise, always and for ever, The Amazing Race.
Q: What is the TV personality/character that you feel is most like you?
A: I'd like to say Carrie Bradshaw, but I think I am confusing the question with which character I would most like to be. Mmmm? Who is socially inept, slightly boring—okay, not slightly—erratic, obsessed, short-termed, chocolate biscuit craving, and ordinary? I don't think they make TV shows with characters like that.
Q: What TV character would you want to date?
A: Firstly, apologies to my boy, but you have Nigella. Sam from Supernatural, even though he is very intense. Ryan Hardy from The Following, because he is Kevin Bacon. Brenda Leigh Johnson from The Closer, we can share chocolate together. And, lastly, 'coz I never just pick one, Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer because he is the perfect combination of good and bad, of tender and funny and he fulfills the Billy Idol fantasy without the drugs.
Who wore it better?
