Regarding a question that was never fully answered, what is the most marked-up item on general sale: greetings cards, cinema popcorn or eggs/omlettes?

Pictorial art surely? A few tube fulls of paint (albeit attractively arranged) and a canvas can fetch millions.

Maybe Ian could define what he means by "on general sale"?

Yeah, I guess unique items can't be said to be on general sale.

On another matter was Voyager painted at all? If it wasn't could it look scruffy or would it simply be 'sandblasted'/'weathered' clean? If it was painted you'd have to use some seriously good paint.



The high gain dish appears to be white rather than metallic but I know so little about these things I can't speculate as to why that might be.

I think this was what Rev. Coles said. I think by "general sale" they mean an item you can buy off the shelf, not something that is custom made.

Bottled water.

Oh, I couldn't help noticing that Mr. Davies was given the best buzzer sound this week.

in terms of buzzers, please tell me what bill and the rev richards were this week. Most enjoyable episode of the series in my opinion by the way

According to the iPlayer subtitles, Bill's buzzer was "Saturday's Kids" by the Jam, and Richard's was "Y Brawd Houdini" by Meic Stevens.

I need the subtitles the BBC provides anyways (esp with comedy with laughter and fast talking) and they usually also tell me what the buzzers are. Might be an idea to switch 'm on solely for that purpose and then switch 'm off again if you prefer.

"Rev Coles" is wrong, just as Cluedo's use of "Rev Green" is wrong.

"Rev Mr Coles" is correct but a little archaic, while "Rev Richard Coles" is by now the preferred form. "Rev" is pronounced "The Reverend"; it is considered incorrect to omit the definite article in speech.

He's of the High persuasion, and so "Father Richard" would be appropriate if you were actually speaking to him.

I have to say Stephen's attire was very Swedish... Well, his tie certainly looked like the Swedish flag, and the shirt and jacket complimented the overall impression.

I've actually become rather intrigued by Stephen's ties. On their own they should probably feature in some sort of Bad Taste contest, but he makes them work. For a long time I didn't even notice how outragous they are at times.

That blue and yellow outfit did not pass unnoticed in our house. Under the artificial light of our living room, the blue coat and the blue bits on the tie looked purple, and we were not impressed that Mr Fry appeared to be wearing UKIP colours.

He is certainly in danger of becoming a Richard Whitely tribute act.
