McGoohan: "The Reader on the 6.27. Was it the writer's fault, or the translator's for this garbage?"

(It's a trick question - the answer is 'both' of course)

Columba is down to do TMAM? Oh dear. I was hoping I could listen to someone else's explanation.

Got something to say?

About This Thread

Maintained by McGoohan
Andrea Calimari likes nothing better than a lovely fish supper with squid rings and thick cut chips. Lots of salt and vinegar and eaten from the paper. Mmm-mm.

By contrast, his pal, Andrea Camilleri writes the adventures of detective Savlon Monty Balloon who solves food-crimes. Y'know, like Rosemary and Thyme off the telly. Only in Italian. His first Savlon novel was Shaky in the Water about Shakin' Stevens taking swimming lessons from the Krankies. I think that's what it's about, but I admit I only skimmed it.

Now read on!
