    Paul Darrow...?

    The name's familiar, but I can't quite place him.

    From an episode of Yes Honestly - The Man Who Shot Bernard Vallance.
    Darrow as dinner party bore Vallance.

    Truthfully, I think - in this particular case - that this guy has developed a mentality of seeking Mandela Effects constantly - and has somehow got it all muddled up.

    He is the only one who has pointed this out that I know of. You would think that there would be corroboration from others.

    I think he might of got his memories mixed up.

    Paul Darrow's wife died in 2012, after a long illness.

    That would also be an understandable reason to cancel a book tour.

    Yes, I didn't know about Paul's sad loss until quite recently.

    Mind you, to be honest, I don't think I have ever seen Janet Lees Price in anything other than that episode though and only knew of her as Paul's wife/Klyn!

    Yes, that pretty much sums up my awareness of her I'm afraid.

    Good to see him as sharp as ever. Especially after what he has been through.

    I love the commentary on TIMELASH.

    Paul Darrow and Colin Baker. What a combination!



    COLIN: Just because Tekker's shuffled off this mortal coil is no reason to lose interest!

    PAUL: You could have married H.G.Wells and become Peri Wells!

    COLIN: Fans use an anagram of TIMELASH in a derogatory way.. Starting with"Lame".

    PAUL: Lame this...? Lame Sith?

    COLIN: Sith! Very Good! (Pause) This thin ice we are on is definitely cracking!

    Paul Darrow playing a devil worshipper who causes demons to take over and enter a person.....?

    The game sounds like a sequel to......
