Seems that it's not just the DVD set cover that hasn't yet been finalised. Rhys Thomas has tweeted that he's just finished editing the extras.

Great interview.


And I can picture John Farrow gleefully (and profanely, of course!) promoting what Day and Thomas were talking about for the next series! :lol:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

Hope some writer is paying attention....

......"But the real revelation is Michael Kitchen’s comic timing. As John Farrow, he fuses an affectionate homage to Queen’s manager and lawyer Jim Beach, with a pop-up book of tourettes that makes Gordon Ramsey seem like a mummy’s boy. Farrow is the unsung hero of the saga: yes, he puts Brian in dogy situations, but he’s usually the one who gets him out of them, too. The pair can’t stand one another, yet they can’t bear to be apart, and there are moments when John’s loyalty to Brian in spite of it all make him positively endearing, in spite of all the f-bombs. In the hands of this incredibly underrated actor, the character is a real triumph, and it’s a testament to the show that they’ve held onto him since the early viral videos......"

Full glowing review....

Fantastic! And all true!

Only thing I disagree with is saying that MK is "incredibly underrated."
I think it's just that he keeps such a low profile in terms of publicity for any project he's doing, and seems to avoid even making himself available for any award nominations, that it gives the impression that he's under-appreciated.

I don't think he's underrated when he does something, as he always gets good reviews. I think he just doesn't get considered for roles, perhaps in part due to his stipulations. According to this recent interview, he obviously wants to work more than the minor parts he has done in recent years in White Heat and the upcoming, The Collection.

"....Speaking at the WSW London Equity Branch Meeting on December 3, 2015, Michael Simkins brought up Michael Kitchen during the Q&A:

I know that Michael Kitchen has his [nemesis] – he’s frustrated because he doesn’t get enough film parts...."

Samfan, Kitchenfoyle posted the quote, but the interview link was broken. I found it here. It's a PDF file. His interview starts on Page 8

Very interesting talk!
I love the remark about the chain of nemesises:
Andrew MacBean > Michael Simkins > Malcolm Sinclair > Michael Kitchen > ???

So which actor is getting all the parts MK wouldn't say no to, I wonder? :whistling:

Thanks for the link, Amiga. Pity we'll never know the name of the actor who's
getting the parts which MK would like. It's probably someone who doesn't
shun publicity, and who is willing to give the occasional interview.
