Who Dares Wins

‘All because the hostages love…’ This old SAS chestnut would be far better, we feel, if reimagined by Tony ‘Who Dares Wins’ Robinson, in Fat Tulip storytelling mode, leaping around an Iranian Embassy as he relates the intrepid adventures of a tortoise called Lewis Collins. As it is, we can only hope for Richard ‘Madigan’ Widmark, Edward Woodward, John ‘Triffids’ Duttine, Kenneth Griffith as Monsignor Bruce Kent (ish), Ingrid Pitt, Patrick Allen, Tony ‘MacLaren’ Osoba, and a news desk cameo from Anna Ford to keep us sane.

    “I thought it was a load of anti-American crap”. One eye on the US market, then?

    Lewis soooo wanted to be Roger Moore in this. And as we all know, what the CND actually desired was to set off a nuclear warhead – think about it, it makes perfect sense according to this. If you’re Ronald Reagan (who thought WDW was fab).
