The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 7th October 2016

The charming and charismatic wooer of women, Chris Aikman, was off ill today, so listened to the show from the safety and warmth of his boudoir at home. When 6.30pm rolled around Chris expected to hear the comforting sounds of Simon not having prepared properly and not being too fussed about it, while Danny tried to keep the sinking ship afloat yet again. But alas, when the time came, all that could be heard was weeping. This went on for quite some time, so Chris rolled himself out of bed and headed to the studio to find out what was wrong.

When he arrived he found a stricken-looking Simon, who was taking crying uncontrollably on Danny's shoulder. Chris gave Danny his 'What's wrong?' and Danny replied, 'I've got a steak defrosting.' In Danny's defence, Chris' 'What's for dinner?' and 'What's wrong?' looks are remarkably similar.

Once that confusion was out of the way it was established that Simon had just discovered that the Moomins were fictional creatures. He had been saving up for the better part of a decade so he could go on a Moomin safari in Moomin Valley. He did eventually cheer up a little though, and after wiping his nose on Danny's sleeve, said, 'well, at least I'll have more money for when they eventually start space missions to visit the Clangers.'

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
