Just finished reading "Godfrey's Ghost: From Father to Son" by Nicolas Ridley.
Oh dear, very disappointing. To save me typing it again, here's what I said about it on another site:-
I suppose I was expecting a biog of Arnold Ridley and cannot see why his son could not have used Arnold's own aborted attempt, known as "The Book" and filled in the gaps with more interviews with people who would have known him such as Clive Dunn, Ian Lavender and Pamela Cundell who are all still alive but seemingly not consulted.
It was like trying to pick out bits of meat amongst the bones of his son's life - a life I had little or no interest at all, or in this missive to his own son (Arnold's grandson), which was even less interesting.
As a work in Father/Son relationships it was OK, but not what I was looking for leaving me not knowing much more about Arnold Ridley than before I started.
And why was the film of "The Ghost Train" not mentioned once?
Society Ball Hostess (Hattie): "Oh look, the band has started up. Can you do Sir Roger de Coverley?"
Hancock : "Why, has he upset you? I'll have him outside if he has"
