The Private Detectives

On Janary 2012, BBC 1 broadcasted a show called "The One and Only Jasper Carrott". In this show Jasper made other sketches and stand-up comedy. But the most important part (at least to us Robert Powell fans) was the come back of The Detectives.

So this sketch was called "The Private Detectives" with Robert and Jasper reprising their marvelous roles of David Briggs and Bob Louis. They are two private detectives from the agency Sherlock and Holmes SAS, for Safety and security. The story takes place in a hospital where they have to protect a russian football player from the mafia. Obviously they fail. It was very funny as it was as the comedy was the same as we were used too, but they added a lot of gags about senility and being old. There is an adorable scene where both appear sleeping together, it was hilarious!

You can catch it on Youtube on the link above. Enjoy!!

Is Hannay back again?

Hello there! Sorry for keeping ages without posting! I sadly had to skip a few bits of information. Sorry! 

But now I'm back with a great, great, great really great and wonderful piece of news : Robert is working on a TV adaptation of a Hannay novel! 

OK, maybe it's a bit late but I hope he'll act Hannay again because he was one of his best characters (and to me the ONE who made me a fan). 

In the interview you'll find here it is mentioned that Robert "is working with a screenwriter adapting another of Buchan’s Hannay novels, The Three Hostages for TV." 

The article also mentions the new play Robert will be starring: Doctor In The House, along with Joe Pasquale who is a well-known comedy man.
