Very good special
12 October 2004 | by gregquinn99See all my reviews

Wish they would re-show this sometime - this was a genuinely very good special from Peter Cook, including some excellent guest appearances. My recollection was that the best bit was the parody song "My Daddies Dying Words", in which a dying Peter Cook reeled off useless, non-sensual pearls of wisdom on his death bed. Saw Cook recently on TV in the Jerry Lee Lewis Biopic "Great Balls of Fire", and he was excellent in it (in contrast to some of his featherweight performances when he was much younger). Now that he's no longer here, kinda wish he had been more prolific - there's very little now available from his work on TV/Film. Hopefully LWT (or whoever produced this special) will release it on DVD.
