I loved Q5 and Beachcomber. This entry taught me quite a lot - for example, I didn't realise that there were others after Q5 (I left the UK in 1973, and for 30 dark years it was not easy to find out about things like TV programmes if you lived abroad)

Having read all his books, I also learned a lot about the "real" Spike Milligan.

Thanks for reading this – I'm glad it brought back memories, even though sadly 'Beachcomber' is all-but completely gone smiley - blue

The Quagmire Quandary section is quite interesting - do you think there was an element of Spike not anticipating the charge of racism because he was Britishish/Irishish and had Jewish friends so 'only joking' would be the excuse?

I believe that that is indeed exactly what he believed - and have tweaked the entry to add that. So thanks for that clarificationsmiley - ok
