TV: C is for...

Catweazle

HAIRY TINKER who can’t speak but who’s really an 11th Century magician (and who’s really GEOFFREY BAYLDON) tries to escape from some pissed off Norman soliders, jumps in a pond to hide and finds himself transported to Children’s Film Foundation-era Britain. Luckily there’s a posh (as always) boy on hand to explain all our modern day shit to him.

    ‘Unsettlingly posh voices’? Hardly I’d say – more typical home counties. Besides, if clearly-enunciated speech is really so discomfiting for anyone’s tender sensibilities, they should avoid watching any top 60’s action tv as there are a plethora of ‘posh voices’ to be found there viz: Roger Moore, Diana Rigg and Patrick MacNee, Peter Wyngarde, Patrick MacGoohan, & etc.
