I'm a bit curious as the the changing role of Bhuvana. First she was a Finnish call-centre worker, then she was some sort of PA for Barnie, then she was appearong in Babysham's head, then she was on the radio, and now she's planning to take over the universe. That's quite a rise to power.

God is all things to Babysham. Maybe she's temping or something. Not sure what the accent was for though. Perhaps she was under-cover... didn't want to be noticed by God, so she put on a silly voice.

Where do the events of Ep5 happen on your map, Dan?

Ep4:
The Fat Cat pub is on the south bank of that big chunky bit of river in the middle, between the Gardener's Rest and Babysham's House.
Letitia lives at Hyde Park, which is under the writing that says Park Hill, to the right of the city centre.
Tinsley Viaduct is just off the map, top right. There's Meadowhall and then the viaduct, and then the sewage works, up that diagonal of the river.

Ep5:
Left of the Fat Cat, in that black spider of drawn-over roads, there's a main ring-road coming out to the bottom left. Where that meets the heart of the spider is Shalesmoor, which is where Stew and Leon get off the tram and cross the road.
The Kelham Island Tavern is near the Fat Cat, a bit nearer to Babysham's, along that bottom black road.
The location of Jade's house is unclear.

I'll add more dots to the map after the last episode.

Has anyone been able to work out what Gabriel says when "he speaks in Aramaic"? Any lip-readers among us?

He says:
Fear not, for thou hast found grace with the big one. And if you play thou cards right, thou shalt conceive and bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Stew, which is interpreted, "fish pond", for he will be big with fish.

He doesn't say it in Aramaic. He says it in a Geordie accent. I don't even begin to know why.

stew² n  a fish pond; a fish-tank; an artificial oyster-bed. [Old French: estui]

Do you think that was deliberate? I mean, Stew's had a fish fixation from the first episode, and as Jesus he was always playing tricks with them. I guess it's been a pun from the beginnning. We just never picked up on it.

Blue dotted line = Sheaf, Porter route.
Turquoise = Don.
Pink = Letitia's drive.

Between the Adelphi and the edge of the map is Darnall, which is where the castellated cinema and the terrace are, in Babysham's head. But I'm not sure specifically where, because I don't know that area.

Some notes about Babysham's home:
His office and flat are in the Corporation Buildings on Snig Hill. They were built in the early 1900s: ground floor shops (now boarded up), with flats accessed from a back yard. It got bombed a bit in WW2, hence the missing end.
You can see Letitia's flat from the site, and the Ski Centre. Probably other settings too.

The underground river is about a third of a mile away in reality. Though there are underground tunnels between a lot of the civic buildings in that area, and we don't follow the route between Babysham's cupboard and the river.

I guess that's it for spoilers now... We may as well use the other thread.
