"What Are We Going To Do Now?"
18 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

The line between genius and madness is a fine one, and no individual epitomised these extremes more effectively than Spike Milligan. The 'Monty Python' team freely admit drawing inspiration from his shows. I never saw 'Q5' alas, but the later series - beginning with 'Q6' - were a mixture of the brilliant and banal. Like the Pythons, if Milligan tired of a sketch he'd cut it short. False noses and boot polished faces cropped up a lot. Then there was the well-endowed Julia Breck, whom Spike delighted in undressing on air. Spike himself never seemed to be able to get through a sketch without giggling. Amongst the highlights were a spoof 'The World About Us' about the 'Cock-a-knees' ( Cockneys ), the 'Good Samaritan' read from a pulpit by a police officer, the infamous Pakistani Dalek sketch, 'The First Irishman In Space', 'The Smallest Police Station In The World' and Adolf Hitler doing a George Formby impression. You had to love Spike to love the show - and I did.
