The following is a statement from Hsi/UK Executive Director Claire Bass:
“We are extremely saddened to hear that the Defence Animal Centre plans to euthanize Kevin, Dazz and Driver, three retired military working dogs, despite outcries not only from the public but from the handlers who worked closely with them. If euthanized, these dogs, who served for years and saved countless lives, will have been robbed of the opportunity to spend their golden years in loving homes.

Created and written by Charles McKeown, who was Oscar-nominated for 1985’s “Brazil” directed by Cleese’s fellow Python Terry Gilliam, “Edith” will also star Jason Watkins, Jessica Hynes, Anne Reid, Rosie Cavaliero, James Cosmo and Peter Egan. The show re-teams Cleese and Steadman, who played husband and wife in Christopher Morahan’s 1986 film “Clockwise.”
“If you had carte blanche on your fantasy BBC One comedy cast then you’d not be far off the ‘Edith’ line-up,” said Shane Allen, controller of comedy commissioning at the BBC. “It’s also a huge pleasure to welcome John Cleese back to the land of BBC sitcom – his last one did all right.”

Paradise Postponed was part of the wave of heritage drama that engulfed Britain during the Thatcher years. John Mortimer had recently adapted Brideshead Revisited and now threw himself into this panoramic history of postwar Britain, anchoring it in the goings-on in the fictional home counties village of Rapstone Fanner, and placing two mysteries at its core: why did leftie vicar Simeon Simcox leave his brewery millions to wealthy local Tory MP Leslie Titmuss, and why doesn't his wife seem to mind? "I was never all that concerned about the New Jerusalem," murmurs Mrs Simcox, played by Annette Crosbie long before One Foot in the Grave.
