David, I enjoyed this episode, written and directed by you, tremendously.

Jeremy and Paul absolutely excelled themselves into acting their roles as Drake and Alan.

David Caddy said...

Thank you. I enjoyed writing this episode.

Great stuff. Well crafted, entertaining and realistic. There was one point early on when I could hear the shades of the elder Steptoe in the dialogue....

Come and have a chortle at my demon geese.

Charles Gramlich said...

I like the idea of a village isolated for a four days. At the moment I'd give much to get totally away from it all.

David Caddy said...

Julie. Thank you. I shall visit your demon geese.

Charles. Heavy snow used to leave the local villages cut off for five or six days. People would have to stay wherever they were. With the power cuts, newcomers would get agitated. Others enjoyed the tranquility.

Charles,

I am thinking somehow of Hillary Clinton and her book, "It takes a village."
I'm sure she'd like to get off her village in Texas too, poor woman.
Very little luck in her quest.

Monique,
I think David will go far in his script writing. Prediction:
He will major in Film at a prestigious university.

Daryl E said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the 'compliment' ;D

boulies said...

What a wonderful cast of characters. I truly enjoyed this with its many layers... fantastic writing, acting, a glimpse of life in small town, rural England. So natural, I felt I was in the room eavesdropping.
I'll definitely be back for more.

David Caddy said...

Ivan. You never know.

Ruela. Thank you.

Boulies. Middle Ditch is getting into its stride!

Aggie said...

I do so love those accents ... Steptoe would be right at home there for sure. Lol!

C.J.Duffy said...

Now, long legged Linda in high heels I would like to meet!

Of course we never get that kind of lady in Fekenham!

So how does it work with you guys? Who decides whose turn it is to write and direct these lettle gems?

David Caddy said...

Steptoe and long legged Linda in high heels.

What a combination!

ANNA-LYS said...

David Caddy said...

Take one step forward, Anna-Lys

Hi Monique
They're redoing the floors on this side of the house all week, so I'm just in and out on the puter. I'm looking forward to listening to this episode as soon as I can. This is a fantastic series!

Dick said...

Hi Monique

There are audio problems again, it worked all fine but now it's the same trouble.

TomCat said...

Great stuff! Hilarious, MD!

Dick, I've found that I never have trouble if I click the 'ovi' at the lower right corner if the widget. It opens a new tab at their site.

One more thing... It wasn't me! I swear!!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I listened and found the snow familiar. We have just had a blizzard and lots of snow came with it.

David Caddy said...

Hi Fizz,

Thank you for listening and enjoying this episode.

Oldmanlincoln,

I have been hearing about your snow and blizzards.
We have gales and continual rain here. Lots of debris and fallen trees on the roads.

I really enjoyed this one, excellent timing and pace.

Monique said...

JoAnn, leuk om je hier te zien, maar ik denk dat je niet hebt kunnen luisteren. Als je flash hebt dan kan je dat wel doen. Tot gauw. Doei

David John Caswell said...

Dear David & Monique,
Great episode! Loved the idea of the 'Middle Ditch Cat', converting people to the joys of computers and the general witty dialogue!

Middle Ditch said...

I can't agree more Anna-Lys

Ricardo said...

I wouldn't mind myself a nice Aussie bird either.

Middle Ditch said...

Amen to that Ricardo.

MRMacrum said...

"You can use my rod, she won't know the difference." Excellent.

Monique said...

A double meaning here, Mrmacrum?

My husband wrote this episode and didn't he do well?

Devin said...

Middle Ditch said...

Devin, this was the first episode David wrote. More to come from him later.
