I’ve been enjoying Colin Murray standing in for Nick Hewer on Countdown. However, it would seem that the new permanent host is Anne Robinson. Now I only know her through Weakest Link and her acerbic comments between the rounds. I do hope that was ‘an act’ and she will be more sympathetic to Countdown contestants.
There’s been a thread about new game shows and I think Weakest Link could make a comeback - but without the sarcasm. I used to like 15-1 with William G Stewart but when it came back with Sandi Toksvik (like her) the show was stretched out to an hour as she made comments to the contestants after every answer. I felt it lost something of the drama of the old programme with its quick-fire format.
