After the pub quiz, Danny asks Alwyn who the first artist was to have a posthumous no.1 single in the UK. He seems impressed when she answers "Otis Redding". The correct answer is Buddy Holly (1959). Otis Redding has never had a no.1 single in the UK. See more »
After the quiz night, Danny asks her "Who was the first artist to have a posthumous #1 in the UK?" , she answers straight away - "Otis Redding - sitting on the dock of the bay, in 1968". Well, this is wrong, Otis wasn't the first, second or indeed third. The first one was Buddy Holly - It doesn't matter anymore (1959), second was Eddie Cochrane - Three steps to heaven (1960), third was Jim Reeves - Distant drums (1965). See more »

Every year some British gem pops up in the cinema, destined to be added to my blu ray collection, a film guaranteed to lift the spirits for years to come. This is 2019's feel good film, yes you know the story, and yes you can figure out every possible turn even if you don't, but it's just such a lovely movie.
We get one man's journey of self discovery and realisation of what's important, and we get the story of ten fishermen, who's talent is harnessed against all odds.
What an assembled cast, Daniel Mays, David Hayman, and of course the wonderful Maggie Steed, but it's the poker faced James Purefoy who stands out, he is marvellous.
It has fun moments, funny lines, serious elements, and of course several heart warming scenes. All in all, it's a winner. 8/10
