Thank you, Tim Brooke Taylor

Where to start. Tim Brooke Taylor was an integral part of the late 60s and early 70s English comedy scene.

My childhood was spent voraciously watching the Goodies and Dr Who daily on the ABC. Avidly waiting for Monty Python movies. Listening to Monty Python records and the Hitchhiker’s Guide on CD.

Tim excelled at surreal comedy as part of the Goodies. Poking fun at anything and everything. The key was it was never mean spirited.

Episodes went anywhere in time and place as long as it was filmed somewhere near the studio and what the BBC had in the wardrobe department.

All the better as they were on a shoe string budget.

TBT and the Goodies put a smile on my face. Then and now.
