The wedding cake isn't yet stale and already plans are underway to bring us a TV friendly version of Charles and Camilla, whether we want one or not. ITV's Granada will be regurgitating the early days of Chuck and his first love in a docudrama entitled Whatever Love Means. Casting begins in May.

This could be the perfect opportunity for Christopher Eccleston to get out from under the Doctor Who yoke, but casting Camilla is more problematic. We'd like to have seen the drama resurrect an old icon's career the way Pulp Fiction did for John Travolta, but the perfect actor for the job already has a career relaunch on the way. The rusting old Volkswagen with a heart of gold would have been perfect for the role of a once loved, but overlooked old trooper who against all odds wins through in the end. Pity.

Then again this story has already been told. Anthony Perkins living in the shadow of his mother, sidetracked by an untrustworthy blonde only to go back to the older (ie. decayed) woman after the younger woman is out of the way. Tell us you wouldn't like to see Charles brandishing a kitchen knife...
