A Very Peculiar Practice – tape 1413

First on this tape, an episode of A Very Peculiar Practice that I’ve already looked at. It’s episode Two, Art and Illusion.

Special shout out to Clive Swift as a professor. He appeared in a Christmas episode of Doctor Who, and his interview about it in Doctor Who Magazine has become a thing of legend. It’s worth reading to see just how rude an interview subject can be sometimes.

Next it’s Episode 3, May The Force Be With You. Greta’s ex husband has turned up, and is not happy.

Rose Marie is buttering up the Vice Chancellor.

Before the next episode, UK Gold give us a glimpse of their Tx countdown card.

Despite the title card, this episode is called Bad Vibrations and it’s another one we’ve already looked at on a previous tape.

And then, recording continues briefly with the start of an episode of The Bill. The tape ends here.

  1. Wasn’t Clive Swift supposed to be taking the regular role Bernard Cribbins ended up in, but then scuppered the whole thing by being unpleasant in that Christmas special? Bernard’s so much better anyway.
