MAGGIE THATCHER - You Saucy Cow!
And I never thought I'd say that!

Oooo, give us a cuddle - Thirties style!

The only programme I caught this week (apart from 'Doctor Who') was MARGARET THATCHER: THE LONG WALK TO FINCHLEY and even that was on the ole iPlayer. I was most surprised at the tone of this feature, very light. It made no attempt to be a docu~drama (shudders) and all the better for it. Reality, or facts, were used but sparingly. The relationship between MAGGY T and TED HEATH was certainly the most eyebrow~raising aspect of this tale.

Thatch this baby!

ANDREA "My New Favourite, Again" RISEBOROUGH was very pleasing in both MAGICIANS and PARTY ANIMALS and she did a lurvely job here especially in the scene where she gives GEOFFREY "The Guv'nor" PALMER (or his character at least) a dusting down - I couldn't take my eyes off her. By the time it had finished her voice had captured Maggie in all her 'glory' and it was nice to see the change in her vocals but not personality. Whilst on the excellent cast, that also featured OLIVER "Ford" DAVIES who I'll be seeing in HAMLET later this year with a certain someone, can you guess from the picture below whose son played her husband DENIS "Denis" THATCHER?

It's the son of ROY KINNEAR!

Despite how us older types may view the woman, it did portray her, whilst not entirely favourably (her family relations were somewhat unpleasant) as a character you routed for. It was quite easy to disassociate Riseborough from the monster her character would later become (ooo, a bit of politics, thank you, goodnight). Personally, I would have liked to have spent more time in this environment which looked like it came straight out of JEEVES & WOOSTER. It's a pity they didn't do this a sitcom 'cos it could have ran for years. Top marks all round and well done to BBC FOUR for finally coming up with one these 'real people' fictions that delivered.

Classic catalogue pose.

I say I haven't seen another programme but I have been watching EURO 2008, where I heard one commentator refer to a footballer as a 'big Jessie', but I don't really count that as TV. In post~APPRENTICE news it seems that NICK and MARGARET may get a 'spin~off' show - literally! Go HERE to see that they've been asked to appear in STRICTLY COME DANCING.

Robots like tea too!

Are CLAIRE and LEE at it? Together?? Could be if THIS story is to be believed and that young lady seems to enjoy, how shall I put it, humping. Miss Young's (s)exploits can be read (if you dare!) at THIS location.

Yes, that is her!


'Til the next time,
C.
