Populist Garbage!

Richard Kay, the columnist, quotes Maureen Lipman CBE, the well-known actress, who despairs over modern TV:
‘Most nights I sit in my living room and flick through channel after channel and there’s absolutely nothing to watch,’ she moans, before taking a swipe at some of TV’s behemoths.
No fan of Downton Abbey or Upstairs Downstairs, she says:
‘I don’t watch soaps, I don’t watch medical and I don’t care for murder.’ And as for Simon Cowell and his ilk, she asks: ‘Who at my age wants to be judged by a monster on whether you can dance on ice or sing?’
I do sympathize with Miss Lipman. Mind you, I'll happily watch Downton and selected classic detective series, viz. Brett's Sherlock Holmes, Morse, Poirot...
