Cilla at Christmas

This video first appeared on my Patreon, where subscribers could watch it a month before it landed here. If you’d like to support me for as little as £1 a month, then click here to help provide the world with regular deep dives about weird-bad pop culture, early access to my podcast, and all kinds of other stuff.

There’s over 500,000 words of content, including exclusives that’ll never appear here on the free blog, such as 1970’s British variety-set horror novella, Jangle, and my latest novel, Men of the Loch. Please give my existing books a look too, or if you’re so inclined, sling me a Ko-fi or some PayPal cash.

  1. I do think that TV, artistically speaking, was at its best in the 60’s, 70’s and (some of) the 80’s, yet not every programme was an impeccably crafted masterpiece, and this programme was definitely not a masterpiece. I think it was forgotten the day after it was broadcast perhaps, typically glossy and overblown LWT variety fare, with the channel’s usual reliance on over-amped sound and canned laughter from the studio audience, who were probably as unimpressed as the watching TV audience. Bland, dully paced with awkward performers and contrived jokes and songs, I cannot recall seeing it and hope I didn’t, as it would not have put me in the festive mood. PS:What flavour was the soup, per chance?
