A bit of A Bit of Fry and Laurie – A Bit of Fry and Laurie (Deceased)

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie

You don’t see enough references to ITC shows in modern television I find. So savour this delightful reference in reaction to the sad death of Hugh Laurie, which results in tributes from Nigel Havers and Rowan Atkinson among others.

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
