Ted Cunterblast

All the scripts from every episode of A Bit Of Fry And Laurie have been reproduced online, together with extracts that were never shown and stuff which only ever turned up in the long-deleted tie-in books.

Given how ABOFL remains the best sketch show of the last 20 years, and how it's never been repeated by the BBC since its first transmission (although Paramount are rerunning it at present), this site really is an enormous boon. And you've always got to be on the look out for enormous boons.

Ted Cunterblast, of course, was the author of 'The West Indies: A Nation Of Cricketers' and a name mentioned almost half a dozen times in a Fry & Laurie sketch that was later shown, totally uncut and to much retrospective bemusement, in a round of the completely innocuous daytime quiz Today's The Day.

"Yes, I remember precisely where I was when I heard the news. I was listening to the news."

Hurrah to someone else who appreciates the underappreciated!

An enormous boon in itself if ever I read one.
