Kiwifruit cancelled

    Good.

    This show was a waste of time and drivel.
    I never wanted to watch a magazine style show that went on about superficiality and looks and asked inane questions

    Amanda Rees to Sarah Waters: So, do you normally set all your books in Victorian times?
    SW: No
    AR: But it seems that way with the last three
    SW: The new book isn’t
    AR: Would you like to have lived in Victorian England?

    how boring!

    If I wanted to listen to such idiotic interviews, I would simply read my copy of DNA.

    At least the predecessor, QN, actually had some decent articles. Kiwifruit had a MASSIVE lesbo POV…
