Poor little sods are in big trouble. We pick over the plight of our prickly pals and ask: whose fault is the demise of the hedgehog? What's Boycie from Only Fools and Horses got to do with it? And can Ol be trusted to look after a hedgehog in distress?
We salute Chris Packham's march for wildlife and have a flick through his 200 things that should be done about it, and we find out what Auntie Beeb is planning to freak us out with next.
All this, and putrid pig poo pots.
