Quote of the day
Dudley Moore: "Are you allergic to compassion?"
Peter Cook: "Only in suppository form."
Just one of the countless quick-fire exchanges from 'Not Only But Always', one of the very few crackers amongst the turkeys that made up the Christmas TV schedules. The two hour programme purported to tell the story of Cook and Moore's volatile friendship, but focused primarily on Cook's caustic satirical wit, failed relationships and decent into alcoholism.
If you didn't see it, but had the misfortune to catch some of 'The Vicar Of Dibley' or 'Star Spell', I pity you, I really do.
