Warning. Sorry to disappoint you but that's not the real me on twitter.
My friend Nigel Planer was telling me that a while ago the man pretending to be him was having an argument with the man pretending to be Ricky Gervaise.
I would completely agree with G about The Shadowline. Though it was relatively engaging in the early parts in the end it amounted to nothing because the story was not convincingly resolved. Its not just the BBC who do this though, C4s Utopia suffered from the same problem, the end made no sense whatsoever which really makes all the time you've invested in it a waste. Basically C4 and Kudos Productions owe me six hours, so I'd like Elizabeth Murdoch to come round and paint my stairs.
However re my BA 13 OON piece in the Telegraph there was a good car smash up in Utopia, I think it was a silver MK 2 Mondeo but they shot it from the side from which angle it looked like a brand new car that they were destroying. So well done Kudos car smash up department, boos to everyone else apart from the actors who did their best. Incidentally Stephen Rea was in both Shadowline and Utopia-maybe he's the problem.
Mr Heath, since nobody else bothered I'd recommend, Barcelona Plates, Mister Roberts and Stalin Ate My Homework.
Also I don't know if I've said but I'm doing 10 extra dates at Soho from the 2nd of April and I'm playing two nights at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on July 4th and 5th though I'm insisting they re-name the venue Hugo Chavez Hall or Nohm Chomsky Hall for the duration of my residency.
