‘Ello, ello, ello, what’s all this then?
Well, some cad has nabbed my mug.

The above might very well be a pivotal scene in the Hollywood screenplay that will almost certainly be created in the wake of Saturday’s Courier hitting the streets.
That’s because we do indeed have the quite remarkable tale of the man whose ghast was well and truly flabbered when, just weeks after his beloved Dundee Utd mug was taken from his workplace, pictures of said receptacle began appearing in the post.
All were contained within sinister envelopes upon which his name was spelt out in letters cut out from magazines.
It’s the kind of case that would have even the combined deductive power of Poirot, Marple, Holmes and yes, even Jessica Fletcher, stumped.
The Courier investigates.
And since we were in inquisitive mood, we also decided to probe the top televisual moments of the year.
From bin-gate (Great British Bake-Off) to the return of Chezza (X-Factor) it is a comprehensive not to mention fascinating and engrossing list.
We also reveal some top boffin news.
They have only gone and discovered our internal GPS systems.

Meanwhile, if it is meaty issues you are after then Saturday’s Courier has got it covered.
The possibility of women fighting on the front line and plans to allow prerecorded evidence to be presented in court both get our full and undivided attention (mysterious mug disappearances notwithstanding).
Weekends are special times. I have heard it said, quite rightly, the only thing that really spoils them is when they are not spent in the company of The Courier. Don’t make such a fundamental mistake do be sure to snap up your copy. Failing that, why not try our digital edition?
