Absolutely Fabulous anniversary specials

Absolutely Fabulous tickets. I post this not because I'm interested in attending (although you may be). I post this because of the bits I've put in bold.
Absolutely Fabulous
BBC One | 9, 16, 23 September

The cast reunite for three 20th anniversary specials.

Due to the popularity of this show we are operating a random draw for tickets.

You can apply for tickets at any time until Thursday 1 September at 4pm.

You can apply for a maximum of two tickets and one recording per household.

Good luck with your application.

All information is correct at time of publication.
Absolutely Fabulous is 20 years old.

I am coming to terms with the idea that in two weeks time I will become 37. I am coming to terms with there being junior Govt ministers younger than me. I am coming to terms with being served by people who weren't born when I was their age.

But Absolutely Fabulous is twenty years old? Seriously?

This makes me realise how thirtysomething Doctor Who fans felt when The Five Doctors was screened in 1983...

Terrible, isn't it?

The one that always does my nerves up wretched is popping into my local and being served by someone who hadn't even started junior school when I first walked in there. And I was only just of legal age for boozing then.
