great, wasn't it?
We should bring it back.
I loved it and still do.
bloke in a wall cavity.

House of monkeys
Skeleton going into the garage
Arthritic guy who somehow shoots himself in the nuclear bunker
There's a special coming next year! With Sheridan Smith!
proper hiding behind the duvet stuff.
we must've been so young.
cyclops isn't quite as scary as it was as a kid.
