Having been a fan of Fry & Laurie since the early 90s I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know there had been 4 seasons of their absurd sketch show, (doing the air quotes with my fingers) “A Bit of Fry and Laurie”.  It was all very clever, although bingewatching it’s a *little* much…  however it was a delight to see the how the series developed as it went on, and by Season 4 it was barely recognisable from its initial incarnation – I read about this in much more detail in Jem Roberts’ book “Soupy Twists” mentioned a little later.  Lots of great stuff, but the standout line of the lot by far: “Then after that, I spent a couple of months as Princess Anne’s assistant. Well, I chucked that in because, you know, it’s perfectly obvious they were never going to make me Princess Anne, no matter how well I did the job.  And it was a question of who you were, rather than how well you did the job, and I hate that.” 👍
