THE NEW YORK SUN clearly thinks there's a problem.

Yes, "on and on it goes"... very like you. If only you had something to say, though. Oh hang on, you did just point out a massive two productions featuring puppets, several years apart. I take back everything I said.

In order to avoid this The Reporter thread being progressively hijacked, I suggest you start a "Too Many Puppets at the NT" thread, you tedious pillock.

Saw this at the weekend - it was okay. The performances were all good, especially Ben Chaplin. But I didn't feel very interested in why this bloke killed himself. It was of more interest seeing the depiction of the Panorama studio and the Wilson interview. I liked the set and there was some good dialogue.

An amazing cougher in the audience at the Sat mat - a real drawn-out, hacking, rasping, gurgling affair - to paraphrase Spike Milligan, like treacle being bubbled through a football rattle.

Anyway, following Wilson v Day/Mossman in this, and Frost v Nixon last year, I wonder if there'll now be a spate of famous political interviews being staged. Paxman asking Howard "Did you threaten to overrule him?" 14 times, or Thatcher being interrogated by a housewife on Nationwide, perhaps.
