John Barrowman on stage

Well, John Barrowman is great fun as Robin Hood, even if he was a little throaty and there appeared to be some lines going astray occasionally. Still, he did a great rendition of a couple of classic songs. Even better, though, was ventriloquist Paul Zeldin as Will Scarlet, who had to carry a lot of the audience interaction and did it awfully well. Also very enjoyable were the veteran Don McLean ("Crackerjack!") as Friar Tuck, and Helen Baker and Pete Gallagher, neither of whom I had heard of before, as Maid Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Some of the jokes, thank heavens, were a bit above F's head but we all enjoyed it.

So, tracking down The News on the way home proved not very difficult. Yet again, they've chosen someone I haven't heard of; I must say I think it's a bit adventurous to go with someone in that age range, but I guess they know what they are doing. I suppose we will find out in this year's Christmas special - if there is one.
