Yes, in 2005 Bobbie Spargo (son of Nick Spargo, who made the original series) remade Willo The Wisp, with James Dreyfus doing the voices.
We know that sounds awful but, apart from a sightly wonky caricature of James Dreyfus as Willo, it’s surprisingly good…
And in the opening episode she gets access to 100 new satellite channels. Which she calls “A hundred new ways to be evil!” before turning all of the rest of the inhabitants of Doyley Wood into actual couch potatoes.
See for yourself!
That’s platform to platform in less than 1 minute and 20 seconds!
But Mansion House and Cannon Street stations are *very* close together, and not on one of the deep lines (where just the time taken from getting from the surface to the platform would most likely make this impossible).
Here they are beating a Circle Line train from Moorgate to St James’ Park - normally a 19 minute tube journey.

Pearce Brosnand is, in everyone’s minds, the best Bond there was, and when Scotland goes, so do all our ties to him. So let’s say Never Say Never Say Never Again to independence!
Whiskey gets its name from the Gaelic “uisgebach”, which means, literally, “water of the bladder”. If we lose our cheap supplies of Scotland’s national drink, we’ll be reduced to drinking English drinks like Pernod and J2O.
Guinness, or “the amber nectar” as it is known in Scotland, has unique health-giving properties. Without it what will we have to turn our stools black? Unblackened stools? No, thanks!
Scotland is known for its wild fens, and mountains like Scaffell Pike. Its beauty is unsurpassed, with great lakes and peaks, which are found in its Lake District and Peak District. Seriously, guys are we really ready to lose all that?
Like it or not (and we do like it), Scotland makes great telly, from Macgyver to Highlander. Let’s not forget, they were responsible for bringing Robert Carlyle to prominence with Ballykissangel, and anyone who doesn’t think Mrs Brown’s Boys is the funniest thing ever televised must have something seriously wrong with their brains. If they even have brains.
With its shamrocks and lavabread, everyone loves St David’s Day, the day when St David drove the snakes out of Scotland. Let’s not let them do the same to us! Most of us are not even snakes!
Actually, they’re shit. You can keep them.
Is this the worst book title and cover ever? Surely yes! pic.twitter.com/Po9WYu8LRN— Michael McDermott (@miguelmyriad) September 14, 2014
