At Least It Wasn’t Santana Page 3

Yet more problems

A new modem doesn’t seem to be a particularly exciting Christmas gift does it? Certainly not now, when (correct me if I’m wrong) nobody actually uses them anymore. The original script had it as “my dad’s buying me a new computer”, which I then made reference to in my next script, which turned out to be for the Halloween issue. There was a plot point about the amount of computers Greg actually owns, and by moving the stories around in the timeline (in order to make sense ?- Christmas comes after Halloween) Greg suddenly had too many of the things – even for him!

Of course this is an issue that precisely no one would care about but it was important for me to make everything “fit”. And now it doesn’t really make sense. But, y’know, don’t say you never get any behind the scenes tidbits of information. Let’s face it, with ITV comissioning a new sub Buffy style show about teens hunting monsters, it doesn’t look like anyone’s going to be lining up at my door to adapt Hope for the Future any time soon, and no DVD commentaries from me will be forthcoming.
