TV review: My Big Fat Gypsy Christmas; Money; and Imagine: Books - the Last Chapter?

13 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Christmas weddings are like normal weddings but – wait for it – more so

I'm going to take all the money I saved by not having a 15st diamond-encrusted dress made from a mile of tulle for my wedding (my life, looking back, already seems a forlorn landscape littered with wasted opportunities) and set up an award for long-underlauded voiceover artistes. It shall be known as the Barbara Flynn Trophy For Maintenance of Studied Neutrality Under Extreme Duress.

Flynn is Jill Swinburne from The Beiderbecke Trilogy and bisexual Rose Marie who set her bra at Peter Davidson's hapless doctor in A Very Peculiar Practice. I loved her then and I love her now as she does, in essence, all the voiceovers not done by Lucy Briers, Her From That Thing and No, Not Her, Her From That Other Thing. Most famously and most recently, she provided the narration for My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. »
