Icons I've made but somehow never posted over this past year. Maybe some were even longer ago? Anyway, FINALLY...

And first, just a brief note from last night: New Tricks went to Thames House. I sqeaked a bit. I mean, technically not a crossover, but Gerry (Dennis Waterman) and Brian (Alun Armstrong) go to Thames House, and sit in a room reading files for two days. The files seem to contain a lot about biscuits. In my head this is definitely a semi-official Spooks crossover. Plus, that was so the same exterior and lobby location.

Anyway, back to the actual insanity contained in this post. The trouble with Jury Service, is you get lunchbreaks in the middle of M'bro town centre, and so you end up buying unexpected DVDs on offer. So, I couldn't resist Victoria Wood: As Seen on TV, (the last time I watched it I was so young I wondered why each episode had a serious documentary in it, so I thought it was time for a rewatch.) And then I decided to icon two of the three most legendary things about the series (and some extras), so here you go:
Acorn Antiques, the (mad, right-wing) continuity announcer and some random others.

Featuring: Celia Imrie, Julie Walters, Victoria Wood, Duncan Preston, Patricia Routledge, Jim Broadbent, Susie Blake

Just to enlighten anyone terminally confused:
Acorn Antiques was a serial sketch parody of a cheap soap (especially Crossroads, but anyone who's seen a bad soap will get the joke of miscued entries, OTT storylines and bad camera angles). Acorn Antiques Part Two )

I'm not sure it's possible to icon the third most legendary thing about the series (well, not in any worthwhile sense), so have that, too: Ballad of Freda and Barry )

I know, why can't I do Doctor Who icons? Well, it's so easy and fun to do Carry On icons in comparison: everyone looks so cheerful, and the faces are so distinctive - literally iconic; nobody else is doing them, and the lighting and colouring is all pretty much just there. It's addictive.

Anyway, 45 Carry On Girls icons:

So, time for that well-known epic tale of the British Raj being caught with their underpants on. It could spell the end of the Empire (but that's only what Major Shorthouse thinks, and who asked him?), but there'll certainly be much tiffin, Belchers, Burpas, cunning disguises, stiff upper lips, Rank stupidity, British incompetence, and no political correctness whatsoever.

For DW fans, there's Roy Castle (film Ian) joining the regulars, Peter Butterworth in his Finest Hour, Angela Douglas as Princess Jelhi, Joan Sims, Julian Holloway (in his only Carry On role that's more than a cameo: "Oh F...udge!") and unexpected Wanda Ventham.

Did I say the Carry on Doctor post was insanity? It's nothing to this one. However, for DW fans, there is Jon Pertwee (never heard of him), Angela Douglas (aka the Brigadier's Doris, which is why a couple of these icons are labelled that way. I'm not confused with Carry on Screaming), Peter Butterworth (the Meddling Monk), also Joan Sims & Peter Gilmore.
