In the outtakes of which episode is Diana Rigg mentioned?


Edit: damn you beat me to it Timeless.

But the answer to your question is Malcolm. And I do remember seeing him in something else with Joanna, I just can't remember what it was.


Fastest clicker in the West. :thumb:

Malcolm is correct! But the piece of work I'm thinking of isn't the kind you can "see"... :whistle:

The bloke's name is Mark Wing-Davey, I know that. But what was he in... I assume you're referring to some kind of audio book with that last hint? :wink:

Sorta. Not quite. I've mentioned Mark before on this forum, not that long ago, actually. Give up? :whistle:

It is frustrating when you know it's on the tip of your tongue. It's a very small part/credit for Joanna, but I still like it. Let me know when you give up. ^^

Okay, then. Mark Wing-Davey is most famous for playing Zaphod Beeblebrox, President of the Galaxy, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio plays and TV series. After Douglas Adams (the writer) died, they did three more Hitchhiker's radio series, one of which featured Joanna in a tiny role as the Sydney Opera House Lady, one of the many guests at the party that never ends (it's been going on for generations. Patsy would probably love it). She doesn't say much (which I've always thought was a pity), but she does a good job. You can see her recording her part here (go in to about 4:10):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQPcfigOq4Q

The guy she's reading with is Geoffrey McGivern, who played Ford Prefect in the series. He also popped up in AbFab as a security guy at the airport. See what I mean about these Hitchhiker's/AbFab connections? And I haven't even talked about Jane Horrocks yet... :wink:

In which episode does Eddie give Saffy a kitten?

Depends on the episode you're referring to. It could be both a and b :lol:

No sweetie, it's not a hat (it's a phone) and it's neither a hat. (it's a pheasant) It's none of them, so the answer is d.

Sorry. :lolol:

It's not a question of who it is, but what it is. It's a town in France where Pats and Eddie went skiing :lol:


What were the worst 8 hours of Patsy's life?

It is a town, but I meant to refer to the joke. Eddie asks Patsy about who Val D'Isere actually was, and Patsy's immediately reply is ''French film star.'' :lol:
