not come down for the weekend, or even a week?
Dartmouth on the TV again!
Airing this Friday on Channel 4
at 9:00pm is The Hunt For Tony Blair, the latest, long awaited reunion
for the Comic Strip crew.
The 60minute film is penned by
Peter Richardson and Pete Richens and follows Prime Minister
Tony Blair (Stephen Mangan), wanted for murder and on the
run. Escaping from Number 10 and leaving behind his adoring
wife Cherie (Catherine Shepherd), Tony vows to clear his
name no matter what the consequences.
But on a foggy London night, Tony has few friends willing to
harbour a wanted man and with front pages demanding his
capture, Blair has no choice but to go on the run, with
Inspector Hutton (Robbie Coltrane) and his sidekick (James
Buckley) hot on his trail. The chase unfolds thanks to
evidence gleaned from his ‘allies' Mandelson (Nigel Planer)
and Brown (Ford Kiernan), as well as an unlikely encounter
with Margaret Thatcher (Jennifer Saunders - a la Bette
Davies in ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane'). Surely Tony's
an innocent man, pursued for a crime he didn't commit?
The cast also includes Harry Enfield as Alistair Campbell, Rik Mayall as Professor Predictor, Morgana Robinson as Carol
Caplin, John Sessions as Thatcher's butler and Ross Noble as
an ‘old Labour' Tramp.

Do we love cameras?
yes we do!
We usually carry Nikon professional cameras and if not
an expensive Canon IXUS. But there are times when
we forget, and the image of the Boatfloat at the top of
this news was just one of those occasions where we were
without a proper camera. But then Dave remembered
he "always" carries his 9mm thin iPhone 4, and so it was
brought into use. So there is an iPhone 4 image of
Dartmouth last Friday.
