Quote from: pigamus on July 13, 2022, 11:49:01 PMMy theory is it's the title. If it had a more memorable title it wouldn't be as unjustly forgotten as it is - it was hugely popular and well loved in its day.
Quote from: Glebe on July 14, 2022, 12:21:25 AMWatched a late-night rerun of Gold's Britain's Greatest Comedy Character recently, Peter Egan was part of the panel, singing Gervais' praises... he's in After Life of course, alongside fellow Decreasing Circles star Penelope Wilton, nice to see her popping up in films now and again, with the likes of her role as Shaun's Mum in Shaun of the Dead and more recently the Downton Abbey movies and Operation Mincemeat.
Quote from: Ignatius_S on July 14, 2022, 12:34:30 AMWilton was in the main cast of the DA series, in which Egan had a recurring role in. The latter was in ITV's Unforgotten, which was very good but sadly no Wilton.
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on July 14, 2022, 12:45:38 PMI remember liking first time around as a late teen, but disconcertingly finding some of Martin's tics a bit too much like my father's. eg: the ritualistic detangling of the landline phone cord and that annoying whistle.
Quote from: Ignatius_S on July 13, 2022, 11:59:00 PMThere's also one idea the writers had for the show's ongoing story, which they rejected - very wisely in my opinion but best left until you've watched it all.
Quote from: Catalogue Trousers on July 14, 2022, 01:51:24 PMThis seems to be a thing with Briers characters - see also Tom Good and his constant irksome whistle of an approximation of a couple of bars of Over The Rainbow.
Quote from: Des Wigwam on July 14, 2022, 10:55:21 AMRule of Three podcast has an episode with Katherine Jakeways talking about it. Remember really enjoying listening to that so would recommend.Edit - it's the Cricket episode she discusses.
Quote from: neveragain on July 14, 2022, 03:49:46 PMIt's a favourite of the writers of The Framley Examiner and there are references hidden throughout (Gasthaus Glockenspiel gets a mention).
Quote from: Thosworth on July 14, 2022, 11:07:33 AMHope I'm not misremembering, but I'm sure in a later series there's a scene where Martin is recounting a sad event from his childhood, and Peter Egan is completely corpsing and can't get his line out without laughing.
Quote from: neveragain on July 14, 2022, 08:37:44 PMYes, I believe he had more sympathy for Bryce.
Quote from: Uncle TechTip on July 15, 2022, 01:38:35 PMNice clip, interesting he's dressed like Rik was dressed in the Young Ones Good Life skit. Maybe a subtle reference.. ?
Quote from: Glebe on July 15, 2022, 02:02:08 PMHaha, that's an interesting one, you never know!
