Has anyone else watched ITV's excellent biopic on Tommy Cooper, titled as above?
I thought that David Threlfall (of 'Shameless' fame) gave an astonishing and mesmerising performance in the lead role! Surely, there's an award already with his name on it being polished-up somewhere in the halls of Baftaville?
He was supported by excellent performances from Amanda Redman as his mostly devoted but betrayed wife 'Dove', Helen McCrory as his long-time stage assistant and 'mistress' Mary Kay, and the always sterling Gregor Fisher as his long-suffering Agent Miff Ferrie.
I was entranced the full two hours, a marvelous portrayal of a very, very difficult man to portray.
