Boon

BLOODY SLOW geezerama with MICHAEL “DAPHNE!” ELPHICK as Ken Boon, first a fireman, then a private dick, then a motor-courier (“hello – Texas Rangers?”) with western fetish, then security boss, all alongside DAVID “IRONGRON” DAKER who was his firemate and then ran a shit hotel. Or something. Demented plots enabled whichever separate businesses the two were running to interlink, which was handy to say the least. Made Elphick a star, though, and ditto young, Ozzy-haired NEIL “CAN WE FIX IT?” MORRISSEY as dim biker Rocky.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but Michael Elphick was a familiar film and telly face before this began, surely? A hell of a lot of people must have seen him in Quadrophenia, The Elephant Man, and Blue Remembered Hills…
