Stare Into Space

A shade under six feet

Posted on | November 15, 2008 | 5 Comments

Is how my brother (who is among his biggest fans) refers to Peter Cushing. Partly because he read it somewhere, but mainly because, at six feet, he can lay claim to the, relatively dubious, distinction of being taller than him.

I can’t affirm the same fandomism (it’s probably a word) as he, but I do like a bit of Cush.  Who doesn’t?  I was, therefore, much heartened to find him, unexpectedly, on TV tonight.  In an episode of The New Avengers called The Eagle’s Nest, there was Pedro, playing a mad German teacher, banging on about reanimating dead frogs and accidentally getting caught up in Nazi, world-domination plots.  Brilliant.

Never really been a big New Avengers man.  As much as I like Gareth Hunt and his coffee bean shaking, I’m afraid to say that Purdy is no Mrs. Peel.

The Cush certainly helps but I’m Mrs. Peel all the way.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
