Stairway to Heaven


Yep, absolute pigs… but it’s the 25 year old female producer’s fault. Whatever. Arsehats.

Sky News wishes to apologise to Senator @sarahinthesen8 for broadcasting appalling comments by Senator @DavidLeyonhjelm earlier today, and for highlighting them in an on-screen strap. A producer has been suspended pending an internal investigation.

Television legend Sam Chisholm has died after a short illness. He was 78-years-old.


Statement On The Passing Of Sam Chisholm


Sam Chisholm was CEO at Nine in two stints… first in the halcyon television days of the 80s & early 90s and then briefly in 2005. In that first role he was always regarded as a pugnacious go-getter.

The so-called ‘starmaker’ at Nine with a big chequebook and loud opinions. Nicknamed a legend in his own lunchtime for his lavish lifestyle at work and play - and the man who popularised the phrase ‘losers have meetings, but winners have parties’.

Always controversial and a larger than life figure, he left Nine for Britain and Murdoch’s BSkyB and returned ten years later to a very different and challenging world in Australian television.

Nine recognises the unique role he played with the Network and for Australian television, and sends their condolences to the extended family and friends on his passing today, in particular his wife Sue and daughter Caroline.






Helen Griffin has passed away.
Born in 1959, Griffin appeared in Doctor Who in Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel playing Mrs Moore (real name Angela Price). This story marked the Cybermen’s debut in NuWho.
Outside of Doctor Who her work included Coronation Street & One Chance.

She died on June 29 2018 at the age of 59.
In a sad coincidence her death came six day before the tenth anniversary on July 5 of Doctor Who: Journey’s End which includes a clip of her as Mrs Moore in Age of Steel.
