Having worked as a Big Brother reporter, Beth joined the entertainment team full time in October 2007, providing news reports and the weekly showbiz features Ten Things and Celebrity Birthdays. Beth also moderates news articles posted on Digital Spy.
Question of the month answer: It's a close call between Rainbow and the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, but I'll go for D&D just because of the endless conversations I had with my friends about which special skill we would prefer (I was torn between Diana the Acrobat and Sheila with the invisibility cloak). And it had Uni the sickeningly cute baby Unicorn!

Question of the month answer: "I used to enjoy Bagpuss when I was a littl'un. God knows why. Watched a bit on YouTube recently and it's bloody awful."
One of Digital Spy's longest-serving reporters, Daniel produces news content at weekends.
Question of the week answer: My favourite when I was really young was Johnson & Friends which was about toys that came alive when their owner was out of the room (it just sounds like Toy Story now that I think of it, but it came first!) As I got older I liked all of the Nickelodeon classics like Are You Afraid of the Dark, which seemed very scary at the time but I think only the 90s outfits would be frightening now...
Simon joined DS as an entertainment reporter in February 2008.

Question of the month answer: "It has to be the Mysterious Cities Of Gold. What a show! A killer theme tune, gripping plot, murderous bald aliens that looked like Dominic Littlewood from The One Show - AND - the golden condor. Why hasn't this been made into a film franchise yet?? Other contenders for my fave show as a kid are Ulysses 31 (surprisingly dark), Dogtanian (I fancied the lead protagonist's deceased canine amour) and The Tripods (which still gives me nightmares about caps). Nuff said."

Question of the month answer: "It has to be 'Get Your Own Back!' with the legend that is Dave Benson-Phillips. The thought of sending either my mum or dad down into the gunge was always an interesting one! Not to mention the fantastic games they played!
Chris provides support for the content team with image editing requests for all areas of the website.
Question of the month answer: "As a very wee boy, I had big love for 'Fingermouse', 'Rhoobarb and Custard', 'Button Moon', 'Trap Door' and most of all, 'Bertha' - the big machine who made everything. 'Knightmare' caused many a sleepless night but I couldn't stop watching it, the same with the freaky Russell T. Davies penned series' 'Dark Season' and 'Century Falls'. Getting older, 'Byker Grove' put me in touch with my Geordie roots and 'Grange Hill' made me fear secondary school. And on a Saturday morning I favoured 'Eggs 'n' Baker' followed by a healthy dollop of 'Going Live'. Ah, those were the days...."
