I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue about tennis
Thursday 23rd June 2005 10:46 pm
I went to see the next two episodes of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue recorded in Oxford last night. It was great to actually see what happens (although I already knew the truth about Samantha and the laser display board). The only complaint was that the theatre was really hot. Although in all fairness, it wasn't that much cooler outside.
Each episode took over an hour to record, so even when they take out the bits that went wrong, there's still quite a bit of that's going to get taken out. It will be interesting to listen and find out what (if I can remember).
The guest was Harry Hill, who I wasn't terribly impressed by until they did a science fiction segment and he did a wonderful Dalek impression without the aid of any props at all. Graeme Garden's Darth Vader was also good but did involve a glass of water.
I won't spoil the episodes but suffice to say they were up to their usual standard.
I found out, while I was there, that Art is coming to the New Theatre, and has Russell Boulter in it! So I will have to go back there to see that.
On my way I stopped off at Borders. Who were doing Doctor Who books at �1.99 and 4 for 3 but they only had two Doctor & Ace books and I've got them both. I was quite interested to discover there is a novelisation of Scream of the Shalka. There was also quite a good selection of Lois McMaster Bujold books, so if I get really stuck with finding them, that's an option.
And onto tennis. I was quite disappointed to miss Greg Rusedski's match yesterday, as it sounds as if it was quite exciting. Mind you, so was Tim Henman's today. But Andy Murray is my little star. Not only did he win a match, but did it in straight sets, beating a seeded opponent, getting him lots of points. Annoyingly, I don't quite have enough money to swap Henman for Roddick (assuming he won after BBC2 stopped at 8.30), so I might get Hewitt instead. Otherwise I only have one man left in! Suffice to say I'm doing quite badly in the fantasy league, but then I was this time last year as well.
I'm really looking forward to a weekend of doing nothing but watching tennis and Glastonbury, except for all those things I've been putting off till the weekend. Which will be good anyway because I'll be bored on Sunday with no tennis to watch.
