Many years ago, I was in a TV film on Channel Four called P’tang Yang Kipperbang – just as an extra with one line that never made the edit. The lead girl in the film was a beautiful actress called Abigail Cruttenden – now of Benidorm fame and much else besides. Like all the boys on set, I fell in love with Abigail – and so it rather remarkable that some 30 years later I find myself writing a BBCR4 sitcom with her younger brother – Hal Cruttenden. Hal is just as talanted – but he is nothing to look at – and despite his never having given birth, he has a much worse figure as well.
Tomorrow is out first formal meeting since bagging the series – expect fireworks!
