I have three televisual addictions, in order of their demand on me:
1) Lost
2) The Apprentice
3) Doctor Who

The third is more a preference than an addiction. Madame has many more – Corrie, EastEnders, Casualty, Emmerdale – but none of them count as addictions in that she does not become distressed if circumstances force her to miss them.

Our children are seemingly immune to the box.
