Today I watched “Bunfight at the Ok Tearooms”, on the new DVD. (I gradually watch new DVDs, so as to savour them - rather like eating fine chocolate...I don't just scoff it till it's all gone!) It’s been years since I’ve seen that episode and it was good to sit back, relax and watch it again. Graeme’s acting at the end is great fun and I love the way they lug the “mule” around everywhere.
Something done in the episode was reminiscent of a scene in Red Dwarf (Series One-episode Two) I saw the other day, (on my other new DVD). I wondered if the Red Dwarf writers copied the idea: Tim putting shaving cream under his arm, instead of deodorant spray – Lister does the same thing. Of course, they may have just come up with the same gag - great minds think alike!
