Crown Court

Richard Wilson sends another punk rocker downONE OF YOUR MORE credible off-school-with-the-Lucozade viewing options. Different case played out in each three x 30 minutes weekly sittings at Fulchester Crown Court, staffed by the likes of BEN KINGSLEY, RICHARD WILSON and MICHAEL GOUGH. Scum of the earth such as PAULINE QUIRKE (always a single mum caught shoplifting), LIZ FRASER (always an old bat fiddling her pension) or MICHAEL ELPHICK (always a wide boy shifting dodgy motors), took the witness box. Shifty beak looked on. Public gallery fidgeted. “Just stick to the facts, if you please.” Jury retired during commercial break. “Case dismissed!”

    So this is where Viz got the name ‘Fulchester’ from! Colin ‘Mr Darcy’ Firth turned up once as a policeman, I seem to recall.

    The time is ripe for this series to return! As I recall the Jury was made up of members of the public. Now in todays age, this could be telephone voting Guilty or Not Guilty! I am sure Shaw Taylor could be a Court Reporter or even Fred who presents the Weather on Granada. I also have a few more ideas on how to develop the format!

    Bob Hoskins once sppeared with his cockney level turned up to 11.

    I’m sure there were a few other pre-fame appearances.
