Thursday night's Question Time - billed as an epic showdown between Russell Brand and Nigel Farage - proved to be a bit of a damp squib in the end.
While there was the odd barbed quip here and there, the comedian and Ukip leader never really got going at each other as we all hoped they would.
Thankfully, the audience was on hand to provide a dose of surreal heckling that was universally lapped up by viewers baying for intellectual blood.
Shouty blue-haired woman (SBHW) started with some good old-fashioned insults aimed at Farage...
That's right, apparently Farage is a "racist scumbag trying to blame immigration on..."
But why would Farage do such a thing?!
Oh, because of his rich banker friends of course.
And she didn't stop there. Things escalated into a rather scary threat...
SBHW is from Thanet and she's coming for you Farage.
All of this was quite fortunate for Brand who had just been comprehensively smacked down by an audience member for his pitiful excuse for not running as an MP - he's afraid of "becoming one of them".
SBHW didn't just stop at the panel either, chipping in her blue-rinse tinted two cents worth at other members of the audience who described her as "the rudest woman I've ever met!"
Blue-haired lady's hit list.

Shouty blue-haired woman was tentatively identified.
Loud-mouthed woman with the blue hair in the #bbcqt audience is, I believe, Bunny La Roche. Worth a google.— Mark Sparrow (@MarkGSparrow) December 12, 2014
And unveiled as a master of colourful disguise.
Naturally, lots of people loved her.
More woman with the big mouth and the blue hair. Please. #bbcqt— - (@_Lwfx) December 11, 2014

Although quite a few were a little afraid.
I don't think we should let anyone in who's got blue hair #bbcqt— Ian Stone (@iandstone) December 11, 2014
Angry pensioner with blue hair. Scary #bbcqt— Mark Borkowski (@MarkBorkowski) December 11, 2014
Not everyone was a fan though.
Who is this nutcase with blue hair? It's probably another socialist. #bbcqt— Neil Saunders (@NeilRetail) December 11, 2014
