Early Doors Live

Anyone been to see this yet? It's on at the Lowry theatre in Manchester for a few nights i think and then around the UK. I'm going to the Glasgow show in 2 weeks. Really looking forward to it. I don't really know who's in it though. I know Mark Benton isn't going to be there which is a big shame. One of my favourite actors.

On way back from this now. Brilliant show. All the actors were on top form. Great finale too. I'll be singing it for days. Couple of other things too but I won't say anything until the run is over.

If you get the chance to go, do. Well worth it.

All actors? Who's in this then?

This is such a low budget sitcom I'm surprised it hasn't been brought back.

Reminds me of a thought I used to have - Whatever happened to Phil Mealy?

Shouldn't this be in Oscillations?

Most of the TV cast were in it. Ken's mum & Tommy were recasts and Freddie and Joan were killed off. They didn't k ow there was a gas leak in the house and when they put the candles on Joan's 60th birthday cake the house exploded.

Ken then says 'we'll never meet the like of them again' and the door opens and Eddie & Jane walk in. Very similar characters who mention the temporary traffic lights and circuses.

The big reveal of the show was that during Jean & Tommy reminiscing over a whiskey as the only two in the bar, they talk about a romance they had years and years ago which then ends in the revelation that Tommy is Ken's father!.

Shame about the missing faces. That reveal in particular would have seemed stronger.
But sounds like a good show, I'm glad it's happening.

Mind, having said that, I could add to my itinerary of the Horne Section and Count Arthur.

A bit of a thread bump but it's been released as a on-demand rental for charity at last!
