1.0 out of 5 stars Next volume, please!, 1 Dec 2013
I was highly entertained by the prospect of this book as I had run out of firewood. Imagine my disappointment to find out that no publisher would touch this with the proverbial bargepole so is only available in a Kindle form - rather ironic considering I was wanting it for kindling! My, how we laughed at the Young Nazi Mother and Toddler White Supremacist group. Still, can't wait until her next volume: How To Display Unnerving Self-Centred Insensitivity In The Wake Of A Tragedy Involving Several Deaths. Perhaps she could do a promotional tour, starting in Glasgow. And, with luck, ending in Glasgow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody and brilliant = bloody brilliant, 19 Nov 2012
Was recommended this by a friend, and can thoroughly recommend this to anyone - an excellent debut novel: terse, economical, gripping, thoughtful and full of tension. A British Cormac McCarthy is born! Top marks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, there was a gap in the collection..., 20 Feb 2004
The last official BBC video release, this now rare box set is a thing of beauty. The two videos inside contain a smattering of Hartnell and Troughton episodes, including one from The Web Of Fear - surely high up on any Whovian's list of Want-To-See. And, whereas collectors will treasure it always, it is the cynical among us who truly benefit. For although it was only released last November, it has already tripled in value and can only become more expensive. Until the Beeb release the dvd, that is...

5.0 out of 5 stars How to be a rotter in an hour and a half, 20 Feb 2004
Any film that has both Alastair Sim and Terry-Thomas must have a head start above most others, and this beauty of oneupmanship is no exception. Throw in Ian Carmichael as the downtrodden hero and the stage is set for a sparkling comedy of manners and social standing. Sim is the cynical principal at a school teaching the arts of getting one over your rival. Carmichael enrols to prove himself beter than the worldly T-T, and slowly becomes a bigger bounder than our gap-toothed fave. Full of great performances, a witty script and a memorable cameo from Dennis Price and Peter Jones, this is one of the great Ealingesque comedies that we used to do so well. And if it only does one thing, it will teach you how to get the other fellow to pay for dinner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sporrans ahoy!, 10 Nov 2003
Undoubtedly the most popular characters since White and MacKay, Hamish and Dougal display their unique talents for the single entendre and surral observation in four of the funniest 15 minutes you'll hear this side of a Presbyterian service on Skye. Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden give it their all, which is quite a lot considering their ages, and produce timeless smut - sorry, comedy. And ably supported by Alison Steadman and Jeremy Hardy, this is a present which folk willnae forget. Or forgive.
10/10
