Derren Brown Presents Hero at 30,000 Feet

I normally have a comment after a Derren Brown special, but... no, not really. Other than to note the whole live bits seemed purely so they could set another countdown in motion! I guess we can expect another live special on 8th October at around 10pm, then.

Actually, one other comment: some people seem to feel cheated that he only landed a simulator. What, you really thought they were going to let a completely untrained man who was afraid of flying be responsible for landing a plane filled with hundreds of people? You really, genuinely believed that?

[This will be available to watch (again) on 4oD "soon".]

SFX #200
Gradually making my way through this. Thought I ought to mention it at least once, as it's their 200th and full of celebratory things.
