Anyone else see this tonight on BBC 3 ? Very very funny fake psychic, camp as a row of tents, doing some extremely bad cold reading - and people (mostly) taking it all in. It goes to show, if they want to believe, they will. Shirley claims to be guided by his spirit guide Sheba (a dead dog) and speaks to the audience possessed by the spirit of Princess Diana...you had to be there, really.

The BBC has so many more specials on this stuff then here in the states. You guys get Derren Brown we get Peter Jennings doing specials on UFO's. Where's my passport...

Slight ?! Very much so (which can only be a good thing)

My favourite bit - "I'm getting a very tall man.....either that or he's stood on a chair."

I thought the show was excellent. My favourite part was when Shirley was interpreting the pet’s thoughts – especially the 'newted' dog.

Apart from the character the programme could stand as serious, as in the 'dressed up' church and cut scenes.

I like the readings he does for couples:

"OK...you live together...you get married.....I think you have some children....he wins a camera - er that's about it really"

or

"So who do you think dies first?....yes you'd think so wouldn't you, but it's actually her...and sooner than you'd have thought"

What about the encounter with the sceptic in the last episode? Priceless.

Also love the Academy part - wonder what those taking part think now?

Yes very funny show. Really liked th pyschic academy section, Shirley got new pyschics to try out their skills. Held up a tea pot and askeed them what theey thought it was used for. No one suggested the right answer: making a cup of tea!
