The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 27th June 2014

On Friday Simon was in the studio looking somewhat frazzled. You see, the previous night it was his shift as 'Maverick Cop' in his local neighbourhood watch. The neighbourhood watch decided that it was more fun to assign different roles to each of the members, such as 'Grizzled Hardnut', 'By-the-books Recruit', 'Family Man' and 'Close-to-Retirement, I'm-to-old-for-this-sh....ip Cop'. They swap roles to keep things interesting and it was Simon's turn for Maverick. As a result he spent the night chasing down youths, dangling potential thieves from windows to elicit information from them and generally playing by his own rules. He sat in his car drinking whiskey from a hip flask and eating Chinese takeaway from the box until 4am, hence the rather withdrawn look that afternoon. He explained that he has drawn the role of 'Wife-whose-husband-keeps-choosing-job-over-her-forcing-her-into-the-arms-of-his-partner' next week, so he's got to go start practising.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office top 10 and his pick of films on free-to-air TV for the coming week.
