If anybody's interested in the CBBC Channel junctions either side of today's So Awkward, they'll be here once this video finishes uploading and processing:

I am gutted to hear about Archie Lyndhurst's death. I had watched him playing his role in Ollie Coulton in So Awkward. He was a fine young acting talent for his age. He was also someone that had a huge amount of potential to go on and do better things while he had been following his dad's coveted acting career in the UK. To hear of Archie's death today at such a young age; it really is a huge shock for us all who have known about what he was doing with his acting career to date. It also has been a non stop horrible year for everyone else this year with the Covid pandemic right on top of us. The news of Archie's death today makes 2020 even more unbearable.

May he RIP. Sad

It looks like an episode of So Awkward has been pulled, there’s a clip on the website uploaded on 17th September (so before Archie’s death) which hasn’t been in either of the episodes on 24th September or yesterday.

The schedules page says that the edition from 24th September was 9/13, and 1st October was 11/13.

This happens all the time with shows like this that could theoretically be shown in any random order within that series.

anyway the missing episode title is available elsewhere ("Academic Lily Speaking") and has a synopsis that includes the phrase "Ollie is stressed", which may explain why it was pulled yesterday.

That one is on next week and is 12/13. The one on 15th October is 13/13 and that is meant to be the finale of the entire show as a whole (this was always planned to be the last series). So to air another episode the next week would be very weird.

Certainly hope so. This was not bad at all when it was aired first time out; I remember I watched it when quite little. It's an extremely odd show, looking back at it, but if they're testing the waters for another go, I shan't have any complaints.

I just hope they won't do the "Ever After" thing they did in the last series and bring back Eve Kampf (she was much scarier than the other one).

As a YouTuber of some renown, I think in terms of the target audience, Adam must be the most famous person to become a Blue Peter presenter since, probably, Mark Curry in 1986. Diane Louise Jordan, Tim Vincent, Stuart Miles and Helen Skelton had all done other kids' shows before getting the job (and Anthea Turner had done lots, but as she says, her career was flatlining at the time and Blue Peter was very much a last throw of the dice), but Mark Curry had been a CBBC regular for many years beforehand.

Certainly I was very excited when Mark Curry joined, I'd occasionally watched Blue Peter before but I didn't start watching it regularly until he joined, I was a big Mark Curry fan. There's an interesting bit in Richard Marson's book where he says they were deliberately looking for an established, experienced presenter, as Michael Sundin had been a disaster, and after Pip Schofield turned them down, they approached Curry. As he says, that meant Curry got a particularly large amount of freedom as a Blue Peter presenter, much more than usual, as Curry was able to argue that they'd approached him, not the other way round, and they knew his established style and how he presented things.

After I pondered this on Twitter someone suggested Barney Harwood was very well known when he joined as well. In Richard Marson's other book he says Barney almost became a presenter a decade before, because he really wanted to do it and Marson really rated him, but every time there was a vacancy Barney was committed to something else. He says that on one occasion when Barney was doing Smile it almost happened, and Marson went to the Controller of CBBC to argue he should be allowed to leave Smile and join Blue Peter because Barney wanted to join, Marson wanted him to join and Smile was a crap show and a waste of his talents, while Blue Peter was much more important, but they refused because it wouldn't be fair on Smile. Marson says he was delighted when he finally got the job, ten years later.


I remember a lead up to one presenter joining when they actually showed potential presenters “ trying out “. It might have been the lead up to Simon Thomas joining. Also I remember seeing Barney in an audition, in a programme on ITV where they showed people trying out to be CITV presenter.
Lynsey has proved to be a strong presenter since joining and I feel the team would be substantially weakened if she left at this stage. I saw a clip of the two newest presenters on their own last week and it did seem a bit awkward / weaker.

In light of everything that happened last Thursday, and the content of the show, it was never going to be a bouncy, fun show all the way through.
