    Blakey (On the Buses)

    We finished filming early today, and the lads – Stan, Jack, and I – fancied a livener.

    It was a good shoot at the LWT Wembley Studios – we shot an amazing sketch where the lads went crazy in a Routemaster, skidding about the place, and I ended up ...read more

    Batman (Batman and Robin)

    “Holy hangovers, Batman, we’ve lost our special powers!”

    My young friend Robin was right. We HAD lost something. But I was convinced he didn’t mean all the bat-related stuff. Hmmm....

    Let me back track a little by way of background.

    Last week, the Batmobile let us down. ...read more

    Laszlo de Almasy (The English Patient)

    Try and avoid it all you like, but there’s little else to do but think, when you’re staring at the same ceiling all day.

    I’m thinking, Yes I’m deep in thought. The meaningful stuff you know; What’s my raison d’etre? How big is my carbon footprint?,… ...read more

    Three Breasted Hooker (Total Recall)

    In the battle for hearts and minds, we were encouraged to play-up the deformity angle. Sympathy was key, our revolutionary leaders told us, in the drive to gain support and crush the air-oppressors.

    To be honest I wasn’t keen to go to the barricades. ...read more

Three Musketeers

West Meon (somewhere in Hants)

A trio of French dandies travel south in a 2CV, accompanied by an unidentifiable bundle under a blanket on the back seat.

They pull into the car park of a miserable looking boozer on the junction of two busy roads, diagonally opposite a petrol station.

The summer's day is scorchingly hot.

It's the West Meon (AKA "Two for One"), a 'pub' in a prime location half way between Winchester and Petersfield from West to East and half way between Alton and Fareham from North to South.

In other words, the middle of bleedin’ nowhere.

Anyway …. back to our story. With swords and hats aflying the three gentlefolk stumble onto the tarmac next to the pub’s bright-coloured bins blinking in the sunlight, to the gentle sound of traffic whizzing this way and that. Aramis winds up the windows and locks the doors.
