However, there is one race that seems to be uniquely British based and that the is the Race to the top of the singles chart at Christmas, the Christmas Number One.

In the last four years this particular battle had been nullified by a TV show called The X-Factor. The X-Factor is Simon Cowell’s TV show format to replace the Idol shows, baring very little difference except the contestants are divided into groups and given a mentor (pretty much no more than a figure head) who is also one of the judges on the show.

Lack of blogging makes me a dull boy

I do have to apologise for my lack of blogging over the last month, I’ve been very busy. However, there will be a new blog in the next few days! Yay!

In fact, you’ll be getting three in the next 10 days! Yay!

Two are about Doctor Who again! Yay!
