The Goodies? The Goodies were a watered-down television version of the cult Radio Programme "I'm Sorry, I''ll read that again." The list of stars began with John Cleese and always ended with "Timbruk Taylor and "Bilody" (at least that's how i heard the names).

Tim played many characters in the usual "Prune play of the week", but the real classic was his grotesque aristocratic nymphomaniac Lady Constance de Coverlet. We are mourning the death of Lady Constance tonight.

In this episode (when I can find it) Lady Constance aappears in Macbeth as "Hecate, Queen of the witches". Marvellous.

Hecate; "Yes... we can."
Macbeth; "They say you can foretell the future- Wait a minute, that was very good!"
