SUPERLATIVE SUPERNATURAL derring-do dished out over teatimes for kids and adults alike pitting battery of cross-generational ghouls FREDDIE JONES (po-faced Victorian general Sir George Uproar), ARTHUR ENGLISH (court jester Bodkin), NICHOLAS LE PROVOST (fey foppish gambler Sir Francis, aka Fanny), SHEILA STEAFEL (depressive wailing White Lady) and SEAN FLANAGAN (stable lad) up against property tycoon PETER SALLIS. Aforementioned band of spirits repeatedly conspire to deny sale of titular hall to unassuming local types thanks to much pulling-out-chair things-flying-through-the-air antics. Exceptional stuff all told, and written by the same bloke responsible for the decidedly less impressive CATWEAZLE to boot.
Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Second part of this, where our hero moves slightly more towards the mainstream and starts penning film soundtracks, including the likes of Flashdance and Top Gun, plus of course The Never Ending Story which means we get to enjoy Limahl nestling alongside the rest of the heavyweight contributors, plus another film where his soundtrack is probably about a hundred times more famous now than the actual film. It’s the title of this programme, for a start.
