"Listening to "I'm sorry I haven't a clue" on the radio and having a few audio tapes just isn't enough for me, so it was imperative that we went to see it live. We only just booked the tickets three months before the show and then they were kept under strict security until November.
After weeks of getting very frustrated we arrived on a very cold day in Blackpool. To will the hours to pass we did some shopping and soon ended up in the theatre bar. I've been in the Grand Theatre many times before, but watching the recording along with other fans was something different, especially if I hadn't have fought my way to the lavatory in time! With the best seats in the house, it was clear we weren't popular with the people in rows B to Q. I could have cried for them if it wasn't for the huge smug grin on my face!
It was great to see the cast live and sharing the same room with Colin Sell is fantastic. Finally, I was able to see how it's done - I watched great comedy in action. The game sang charades with a digital display screen so powerful it's made out of cardboard! Huh! The magic of BBC broadcasting, I never knew it was so sophisticated. Well, time to put the radio back on, so while Samantha nips out to see a dental hygienist for a good thorough oral, it's good-bye from me."
