"New Darcey video"
 
   I thought I'd give myself a little Xmas treat, so ordered the new Darcey video, which was reported to be her in rehearsal for various roles sometimes partnered by Cope and Cooper. Besides a few jetees and bourees, I thought we might get some pensees from the girl, too. No chance, it is awful! Badly shot, no talk, except for the artist who has painted the most naff portrait of her I have ever seen (Mabel Lucy Atwell incarnate) and a little bullying of camera crews. Lots of repetitive stuff (putting on makeup)and a long deliberation over her shoes (sorry Jim ) and some nasty shots of her bunyons. She smiles a lot...well, of course. Only highlight (for me but maybe not for everyone) was a glimpse of Adam fluttering about in his little yellow kilt.... Deborah Bull did better in the BBC's Dance Night. What a waste of money.

   Oh dear! I have had the video for some time and I consirdered posting a warning for people not to buy it as it was so bad!

But I did not because I reckoned that many people would see it as part of my supposed campaign against Darcey.

   Eugene, you and I have not always seen eye to eye on some things, but we do agree on this. I don't suppose I've ever been a great Darcey fan, but having seen her in her 'Friends' show in Edinburgh, I thought I'd give her a chance. But...too sweet, too much smile, too little acting ability? And definitely not a Forsyth person. But this one is real rip-off. 12.50 plus postage for 40 minutes of ..well, not a lot. Rather her 'Friends' got together and made their own video.

   Have not seen all the video (only a clip) so can't comment on it!

My only query from the part I saw was on when it was filmed! I think the footage I saw was from 95 or 96 so it seems strange to have brought the video out at this time?
