I think the best Hancocks are the ones with Kenneth Williams who is probably my second favourite British comedy actor of all time and the one I like most. The more the years roll by, the more I love him and I see him for all the imitators as an original. No one else can compare. My favourite Hancock episode - and I have done about ten in the last 48 hours as it seems so normal and reassuring in these terrible times - is the one that involves Kenny as sorting out an aeroplane that has run into difficulty. I do have books on Tony who is my favourite ever British comedy actor with a lot of programme detail but if anyone can give me the title then that will save me a research job. I can get Alexa to it although she is fickle. For the record, not that it matters seeing I am just one little fool, my third favourite "British" comedy actor is Sid so it all comes together there for me. I like wacky. Hancock was maybe more wacky than we now think in its age and some discussion on that aspect would potentially be interesting on another day. I also adore Round the Horne.
