Yesterday I came across someone on facebook saying that they would refuse to watch the new John Cleese sitcom because of his stance on the EU, but I welcome the news that he is going back into TV with glee. Whatever his politics, surely the news that one of the greatest comedians ever is rejoining the beeb is worth a smile; and as I wrote in the addendum to this entry, one should never let politics get in the way of such matters. Of course, whether the new show will be any good or not remains to be seen. The question is, does the old master still have it, or is this just yet another attempt at restoking fading fires?
