On top of all that there's a tribute to Cole Porter, with a snippet of Well Did You Evah (above) which appears, spooky coincidentally, just a day after I posted the Socks singing their version of the song on Youtube.
As well as Bananaman, I've written this week's Little Plum, Damon The Shaman (written as Damon's debut, it's appeared a week after last week's Mind Reading story which was originally the Return Of Damon The Shaman. These titles, by the way, only exist in my head). Also in this week is Pansy Potter 'Handshake' which was, I think, the first Pansy I wrote.
And is it my imagination, or is the brilliant Laura Howell paying homage to Joe and Petunia from the old public information film Coastguard in this week's Tricky Dicky? I do hope so.
