That's an impressive list!


To name drop, I once had a pub lunch with Judi Dench B).


And I don't mean I was in the same pub as her one lunchtime, there were just four of us (another being her late hubby, Michael Williams). Lovely couple, my lad is infinitely impressed that I once broke bread with M :lol:.

An American lady teacher was on an exchange visit to a Liverpool Primary School. One day she was supervising a sports lesson. All the kids were racing about and she noticed one lad who was stood on his own. She noticed that he had been on his own for some time. She went over and said 'why don't you join in with all the other lads' The lad said 'I don't think I should'. 'Why not' asked the teacher. 'I'm the goalkeeper' said the lad.

The Z cars bit gave me a lump in my throat and I only live in Berkshire!

Always makes the hair on my neck stand up to be honest. I think that is what it means to be an Evertonian Johnh.


So how many here used to watch Z-cars?


well I did lol


Fancy Smith (Brian Blessed) and his Scottish sidekick, can't remember his name.

Was it PC Sweet? Or PC Evans?
