Fucking hell, I just remembered Chloe's husband, who was apparently produced in some kind of writer's room exquisite corpse session: "He's an English..." "...hacker, who's also a..." "...ladies' shoe salesman..." "...at Saks Fifth Ave. Perfect!"

Charlie Brooker memorably described him as "the kind of man who'd put his thumb up your arse during sex", a description which I've never been able to shake.

Never mind Morris, what about poor old Edgar?

Too fat to run to safety? Saddest death in the show IMO

Yes I can still see his crestfallen face when he

comes round the corner and sees all the hotter members of the cast have sealed themselves away from the poison gas and left him outside. "Sorry mate!"

Not a lot of people know this but he was supposed to survive that. However the actor was such a fat shed, he died when his heart couldn't take doing a little jog. They left it in because it fitted the scene quite well. The bonus extras have it played out with Rollin' by Limp Bizkit.

His name was Morris. I know this because my cat is named after him.

Cats named after characters in 24, an occasional series.

There was a magnificently gorgeously ugly battered old tomcat who used to hang around our garden eying our girl cats. We learned later his name was Tommy and he'd been abandoned by his owners when they moved away. He was completely wild, wouldn't let anyone go near him except one lady who fed him.

But we called him Behrooz. MrsMoth would talk to him using her Shohreh Agdashloo impression. Over time that morphed into Bruce, after the shark in Jaws (Shark film).

Eventually he became ill and had to be taken to the vets - somehow, not like he'd let anyone get near him - and be put to sleep. We thought he might have fathered one of our girls' kittens but he was apparently snipped.

Imagine how Chloe felt.

Might explain why I get her confused with Cassidy Klein.

Can anyone remember what the BBC discussion post-show show was called? Surprisingly hard to find on Google.

Pure 24 according to BBC Genome. Doesn't ring a bell.

Yeah that was it, can't see any episodes online though. Cheers!
