When a cartoon with women as protagonists appears, it's like a breath of fresh air!

Yes, and, Rex........................?

Yes, well known newspaper cartoonist I think - perhaps Beaky could fill us in on that?

As for how many PCs he did I can't help you as they have only just started to appear on the net, and I was surprised as I didn't think cartoonists of his ilk did Saucy Postcards.

Rex Audley, who died some sixteen years ago at a ripe old age, was a gag cartoonist during the golden age, when there were loads of papers and magazines that accepted unsolicited jokes. Some of his cartoons were pretty funny, but the one that Herc posted is abysmal! Misogynistic, badly drawn and - at least for me - without a spark of humour. And I love good seaside postcards - Dr McGill in The Rebel was named in his honour.

Excellent, that's the trivia we are here for.
Now, how can I slip in to a conversation... Huh

Thank you for that Beaky - presumably referencing Donald McGill as a homage?

Thanks for that. Never occurred to me before - I'll have to look out for that next time I watch the film.

I think he's talking about the UK Gold programme that he penned, not the Tony Hancock film.

You should Herc, he modelled Henry on you. And Simon Callow played you.
Now you want to watch it, don't you.

If you think I'm going to pay extra £x to see one series - I'll wait until it comes on Yesterday or some such. Cool

Sorry, and two for the price of one! Bargain, and I expect you wouldn't say no to repeat fees. ;)

Just think, I have all that to look forward to when it surfaces somewhere.

Maybe you could get TPTV to show it.

Emailed them about something else a couple of days ago, but heard nothing yet.
