The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

Saw him as a great Professor Higgins in Pygmalion. A fine actor. R.I.P.
I gather he was a lovely man too. My late ex-husband worked with him and said he was delightful. Sad.
I was surprised to hear this on the evening news. I immediately thought of our recent discussion about ‘The Jewel In The Crown’. The age of 70 seems so young an age to die, these days. Perhaps because I am only five years away from it.

It was a shock to me. It is too young, just as 69 was too young for Rickman and Bowie.
From my childhood I fondly remember Tim Pigott-Smith from a really great Doctor Who serial “The Masque of Mandragora” and the wonderful 1981 fantasy movie Clash of the Titans. As an adult I later spotted him in many other television and film productions. He certainly was prolific.
