Everybody's in the wardrobe now


(watched that episode earlier, was as great as the old thread said it was, I think it kinda broke me though)

Haha! Good one, Jenna!

Thanks. & thanks Cab for the accidental bonus meta humour on my first viewing.
Genuinely had to hit pause when that shot happened it was so perfect.

This thread is tucked away in H.S. Art, but long may it run.

oh no, he's escaped from the wardrobe and is terrorising children's comics.



Get back in that wardrobe at once sir.




jenna appleseed

What was the story behind this? Why was Windsor Davies in a cupboard?

He played a prank on Robin Askwith or summit.

Possible explanation for Windsor in a wardrobe?
(from the shitcoms thread)

There was a story at the time Bottle Boys was on (and it was recognised as being extremely poor even at the time) that Robin Askwith hid in a cupboard rather than film that week's episode, so awful was the script. I think it was the Daily Mirror's TV critic at the time who was so impressed by this that she instigated the Commemorative Robin Askwith Plaque for services to television comedy.

That actually sounds vaguely familiar or maybe I'm thinking of summit else. In any case, thank fuck Davies hid in that cupboard/wardrobe and gifted us one of History's Greatest and Most Significant Moments!

Incident not mentioned in Askwith's autobiography. You'd have thought it'd have been in there.

Windsor Davies in a cupboard
I'll fetch the suitcase from the van
'Cos if you want the best ones
But you don't ask questions
Then brother, I'm your man

It angers me to think he didn't consider it a significant event.
