OK to start its well worth checking John Lewis as they will price match and a 5 year guarantee is included. Don't look at prices on thier site as it doesn't reflect prices in store. I bought a Panasonic and the store was matching a local retailer which meant the price was £50 lower than anywhere else.
For some discussion/advice see here: LCD Televisions - AVForums.com
Hopefully you'll be able to make a decission then. From personal experience I know how difficult this can be and I wish you luck.
Another site worth a look http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/

I'd be careful. The catalog companies often have specials made for them by the mfrs. One letter different in the code, and a lot lower in quality/features (personal experience of washing machines and Zanusi).

A Panasonic Viera TH-58PZ800U uses 196.37 watts which is 0.14 watts per sq inch, which is less power than a Sony PS3!

I got a Samsung 40" Full HD one for someone this summer and boy oh boy was it amazing, brilliant quality. We have hung it on a Voguel wall mount and its brilliant, they are so pleased with it, and even with the Wii on it it looks brilliant, very impressive bit of kit, I know Samsung kit is good I have a small HDTV by them myself so was expecting no less and I wasn't disapointed. Very good kit and well worth the money at the time.

Telewest (Virginmedia) give anyone with a tv box access to full iplayer for free. However the channels are limited unless you are willing to pay, but you get iplayer and an on demand service which just rips sky apart.
I think you can buy a phone line from them for £9/month and get free tv, or just get the basic tv package for about a tenner a month.
However, if you live in the back end of nowhere, looks like your stuck with sky and plugging a pc in!

Our old 28" CRT has gone mental so I've just ordered a Samsung 32" LCD.
I was torn between that and the LG 32" but the thing is, LG tout their one as having 50,000:1 contrast ratio which is just ridiculous.
I usually check sites that sell them and also do customer reviews. I know a lot of reviews are very specific (i hate this tv cos the remote control is blue not black) but you get a general idea.
