The Foretelling Of Episode 21



The Foretelling Of Episode 21

Not much time for a huge blog post today, as we've been concentrating on audio things today.
First off, we've been recording some stuff for Paul's 'Shy Life' podcast, playing the parts of Gordon and Dolly. Apart from the odd coughing fit and stumbling over our lines, it didn't seem to go too badly. This is for the Christmas Special episode, but we won't reveal WHICH Christmas Special, as things are never as simple as they might seem...

And we're happy to announce that we've finally started work on editing Episode 21, at long last! It's in no danger of being one of our two-hour epics as we've gone for slightly shorter pieces this time.
We've recorded the opening sketch which sees us doing our best Captain Mainwaring and Sergeant Wilson impressions. Lisa (as Sergeant Wilson) reveals a secret at the end which comes as a surprise to Mainwaring, but we shall say no more on that score.



Martin Holmes takes us outside to visit Arthur Lowe's blue plaque in Derbsyhire in a rare bit of OB work for 'Round The Archives' as well as talking about his memories of the series in general.

Following this, Warren joins us in his usual place on the sofa as we take a look at 'Museum Piece', broadcast on 7th August 1968.

Martin makes a rapid return to examine 'The Foretelling', the first episode of 'The Black Adder', shown on 15th June 1983. This may also have an infuence on our closing sketch, although I haven't actually written it yet!



Finally, we wanted to look at something starring Ken Dodd, so we chose an episode of 'The Good Old Days' from 1978. As with so many editions of this show, the range of acts on displays is certainly ecelectic. But suffice to say, we definitely enjoyed ourselves, if not always for the intended reasons.

So, still a bit of work to do, but we've made good progress today. Still aiming to get it out before the end of the month, so fingers crossed!
