Disagreement over the lockdown has taken a decidedly different turn in the New Year. This past weekend Toby received a death threat in one of his email accounts and it was deemed that it was serious enough to warrant a police visit. He also got into a very public row with Conservative MP Neil O’Brien (Harborough, Oadby & Wigston).

On the culture front, we find James watching (*gasp*) the BBC and he recommends The Serpent, the story of serial killer Charles Sobhraj. (It’s a BBC/Netflix co-production so American listeners will presumably get it shortly after the Beeb is done with its run.) Toby is so disgusted with this year’s Bafta offerings (Have we ever mentioned that Toby is a Bafta member?) that he’s gone back to revisiting older films such as SPECTRE and Star Trek: Beyond.

This week’s opening sound is of BBC health correspondent Dominic Hughes on Covid-19’s “mutant” strain.

    Sorry to hear about the threat Tobes. It really can get nasty out there.
