I remember a classic clip of him presenting a Palm Pilot as an award at a Sky TV bash:

Brian: "Palm Pilot? Sounds like a fucking wanking machine!"

Flashman and I often hark back to old Brian appearing on some Saturday morning children's TV programme and using the words 'crazy bastards'.

He then said 'Can I say crazy bastards?' Much too the chagrin of the presenters.

My dear Brian you can say what the hell you want. He is ace though.

The man is a legend. He also has undoubtedly one of the best voices in acting.

What about Tom Baker?! ^ (a little off topic, but have you heard his appearance on a music track called Witness To A Murder (Part 2)?)

> Brian: "Palm Pilot? Sounds like a fucking wanking machine!"

Brilliant line, always makes me laugh :-)

His Pavarotti performance was pretty good on (Matthew Kelly voice) Sssstars In Their Eyyyyyes!

Bizarrely enough, I originally typed my post to read that he had the second best voice in acting, behind Tom.

But then I thought I was probably biased, and performing my usual trick of dragging DW into threads where it really doesn't belong!

Although of course Blessed does appear in "The Trial of a Time Lord".

Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Oh and I'm afraid I've not heard that music track. I do, however, have an eight minute out-take MP3 of Tom doing a voice over for an advert for a polish called 'Symphony', and it may well be one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

Never believe anything that originates in the Daily Star!

January 8th is still my bet. Christmas Day's not impossible, but somehow I just don't quite see it.

I want to meet Brian.

Then again, I'd also like to get a pet baboon.

Neither one will ever happen.


God wants you to send me some money.

I'd love to hug that man, someday.
