10 reasons you should watch The Palace

ZIG-A-ZIG-AH! The Palace, ITV1, 9.00pm

» It's got Jane Asher in it.
» It looks absolutely ridiculous.
» It's got Jane Asher in it.
» She is playing the Queen Mother. Well, not THE Queen Mother. But A queen mother, which is almost as good.
» It's got Jane Asher in it.
» Following his father's death, the new King Richard must give up his boozing-and-shagging ways in favour of ruling-and-monarching ways.
» It's got Jane Asher in it.
» Queen Charlotte, aka JANE ASHER, likes a drink, as do the rest of them, so we will be treated to a lot of pissed-up argy-bargy. Just like real life, except with more ermine, and people clobbering each other with sceptres instead of broken WKD bottles.
» It's got Jane Asher in it.
» Radio Times describe it as "pretty laughable in places", which is as compelling an endorsement as we've ever read, even if that is almost certainly not what they intended.

PS - Did we mention? IT'S GOT JANE ASHER IN IT!

I'm a huge fan of the palace. Not because its a brilliantly scripted or acted show, but simply because it’s light Monday night entertainment when the time slot alternatives are a cacophony of dull documentaries. Oh and I love Jane Asher.. she had a cake cook book once.. Scrumptious..

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
