    Always nice to hear Derek talk. His love of Bristol is so apparent.

    Like Mark C has said, it Seems Derek loves Bristol! (Like me!). Why couldn’t the BBC build a new purpose built set in Bristol though? They built a new one for Cardiff, but why Cardiff? Why didn’t they just keep it in Bristol?
