TV After ITV announced that they were developing late afternoon spin-offs of their primetime soap operas, I didn't think the channel could be any more ideas bankrupt. Then I read: "ITV is bringing back its classic dramas Rumpole of the Bailey, Sharpe and Inspector Morse." As my Mum said when I told her: "Isn't he dead?" Well yes...

[Albert Finney playing Rumpole might not be such a bad update (the Leo McKerns were made in the age of multiple camera studio productions on videotape) but do we really need more Sharpe? I smell an international co-production...]
