Dambusters on the TV. Poor ****** has just been killed, but they're going to bury him on the grass verge outside Guy Gibson's office, around midnight.

Is this the new Dambusters that Stephen Fry was supposed to be writing? I thought it was canned.

The dog's new name was to be niggles, apparently. But I gather Fry was too nervous of even that and bottled out of the whole project as a result.

It's been ages since I last watched the B &W version, and I forget now. Do they get the dams in the end?

No, it's the original. I sincerely hope any remake has been canned. There are some things that shouldn't be f**ked with. The Dambusters and The Magnificent Seven being two of them.

The 2016 one is a remake, but who the f**k is going to watch that ?

Edit - OK, I see what you're getting at.....hardly the same thing though, is it ?

Grandad QH's squadron (617) Après moi le déluge, Rodney!

Granted he did join up after the Dam Raids.

Edit: whatever happened to the Peter Jackson remake?

qh

If they'd remade it they'd have called the dog 'Equality' and had Idris Elba playing Guy Gibson...

Remake? God I hope not.
I first saw this at the cinema.

Gibson would be transgender, shirley.

And would refuse to fly unless they had TG toilets on the Lancaster.

And instead of bombs they have dropped leaflets on the Germans urging them to treat the Jews equally or we'd impose sanctions on them.

I hope in the edited version or any new Dambusters movie the dog should be renamed to something benign such as Blackie.

Hate all this PC nonsense, ****** is the name if the dog, deal with it.

I was watching repeats of the Young Ones on Dave, the ep with the riot, only something looked odd, the graffiti on the phone box had been badly blurred out. Had to get the DVD out to see what it had said, was a racial slur but nothing extreme.

These things are a sign of the times, changing stuff smacks of MiniTruth.
