    get the old Highlander back on #bbcqt

    People were asking whether he forgot to put his arm down or just kept it up deliberately.

    Did the #bbcqt Highlander man forget to put his arm down or remembered so late he tried to make it look deliberate? http://t.co/F5Y1ab8OCj

    There were calls for him to have his own show.

    Give Highlander Man his own TV show. #bbcqt

    Bit like the Jerry Springer show, the crazy highlander should have his own 'final thought' on all #bbcqt shows
