Crikey! Is that old fart sill with us? Hasn't he compered "Just a minute" on the BBC wireless since the year dot?

If you've jinxed him, I'm going to give you such a pinch!

Hopefully not. It was your review of ESCORTS FOR HIRE which reminded me about MR JOLLY NEXT DOOR where he was continually referred to as 'Nicholas bloody Parsons'. Checking Mayall and Edmondson's name spellings, I thought I'd see if the 'old fart' was indeed still alive, and it seems like he is!

You couldn't have waited ninety b***dy minutes until the clock tolled midnight in Blighty?

I think that he has been the butt of many a joke over the years and has good-naturally suffered the lambasting. Messrs. Mayal and Edmonstone would only be many in a long line.
