God bless Galton and Simpson

I thoroughly enjoyed the Galton and Simpson interview with Mark Lawson this evening.  And my admiration for the pair increased when presented with a Desert Island Discs type query from Lawson.  You’d take the Blood Donor surely, he asked (having already mentioned Tone’s problems with cue cards during the filming – ever more notable on repeat viewing).  Alan S suggested a compilation including the plea to the jury “Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you?”, and then rounded things off by demanding Rab C Nesbitt.  

Also, if you missed The Curse of Steptoe on BBC4 try to catch it on the iPlayer.  Well cast, and definitiely worth a watch.

Next week thrill to Ken Stott increasing his array of accents with Hancock (following his turn as an Israeli in Charlie Wilson’s War) as the lad himself runs off with Joan le Mesurier, having been kindly offered supported by the charming John.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
