21 Years in a Flannel Shirt

2012 Hull Politics graduate, work for a Labour MP in Westminster, flit up to West Lancs when possible. Actually 23, but too stubborn to change the URL. Sometimes I make GIFs

You will find a lot of these two here:

Peter is hilarious! I love this interview.

Peter Cook and cats. (Shame about the slightly unnerving moustache.)

Wendy notably said the only time she saw Peter cry was when their cat died.

The Habit of Art - Alan Bennett 

Performed by Frances De La Tour at NT50 Live

Think what the world would have missed if he had gone down the other route. He has become one of our greatest intellectuals, the man behind some mind-stretching documentaries, a writer of books and a director of opera. His contributions have frequently caused controversy, but he has made us laugh and appreciate beauty.
Wendy Cook, Peter’s first wife, on Jonathan Miller’s decision to take part in Beyond The Fringe, delaying (indefinitely, as it turned out) his return to medicine.

I went there at a time when you could go. My parents wouldn’t have been able to afford to send me to university or art school. And I went at a time you got a grant to go there.

It may sound nightmarish to some people now, but the government paid for you to be educated, because they believed it was a civic responsibility. And I certainly would not be here, being Doctor Who, if they hadn’t done that.

So I find it alarming that we live in an age where it doesn’t work like that any more. That we don’t think as a society, it is worthwhile paying to help people be educated, and become the best they can be.

Peter on education and our society’s changed view of it (Big Issue). (via kitt66)

70’s version I have never heard of but gotta see it!

This poster is better than the film, bar a few good rehashed Pete ‘n’ Dud sketches.
