TV: A is for...

Ad-Lib

DREADFUL HALF-ARSED cheapo kids’ drama-workshop-on-screen string of semi-improvised (hence title) sketches and bollocks, the most notable thing being when cast regular DUNCAN GOODHEW (yup, the bald swimmer) pretended to be Dracula flapping his cape as he swooped down on a victim. The interview DG gave on CBTV around the same period confirmed impression of him as a twat. Co-conspirators IAN BARTHOLOMEW, OONA KIRSCH, LIZ LIEWS, CRAIG LYNN, BEVERLEY MARTIN, DAVID NUNN, NICK ROWAN and TILLY VOSBURGH may have fared little better. See also SUNNY SIDE UP.

    I have very vague memories of this, and a slightly stronger memory of it being something that fell quite noticeably beneath the accepted standard of what was considered ‘professional television’ – even at the time. Tilly Vosburgh, however, seems to be the default choice for drama producers searching for a nervous, twitchy, ascetic-looking middle-aged woman who looks as if she could have a total screaming breakdown at any moment.
