The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff

I’ve just been catching up with the rather amusing Bleak Old Shop of Stuff, which is currently airing on BBC2.  The series is appearing on iPlayer, but I notice the pilot is also floating around. *cough* It’s a highly silly Dickensy spoof, but contains much that might appeal to a Babbager in humorous mood.



It really is very silly…but what can I say, it amuses me XD

      Clearly designed by someone with a bit of Babbage in their heart.

    I like the “END-IT-ALL DOCK” sign in the second from last picture.

    This post almost makes me want to start wearing skirts again.

    Should we get a Mayorial Locatortron? :-)

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Christmas episode last night on youTube, and the silliness, and Elleon-esque dilemmas. Going to have to watch it again just for the one-liners. Lots of build/story inspiration. Can we make it mandatory viewing?
