"Travels with the gloriously gloomy Uncle Mort"

"Peter Tinniswood's comedy drama"

Totally wrong Onan. in my opinion.

Pete Tinniswood's Uncle Mort is a great English character, and a wonderful
send-up of the North Country.

But then I'm just an Essex boy!! :hmm:

Do you need to send up 'oop north? I was hatched in Stoke on trent and my ex was from the very bleak, Bronte style delights of Lancashire. (and not a million miles from Onan's neck of the woods)

Can't get enough of it.....

Since when has Bronte country been in Lancashire? Those are wild and windy Yorkshire moors. They may look the same as Lancashire moors but they are of a much better standard. :hmm:

Come to mention it, what have Yorkshire and Lancashire got to do with the North anyway? I guess that bits of North Lancs might squeeze into the North, but the border is the Tees and that definitely rules Yorkshire out!

Don't be ridiculous. The Norf starts at Watford.

And very welcome to it you are too.

You have my deepest, deepest sympathy----and I think it's very brave of you to admit as much in public. ;) :E

Damn right - the Brontes hailed from the Worth Valley, Yorkshire - though Patrick Bronte was an Irishman.

I wish you could transfer Middlesbrough over the Tees with the rest of the 'north' and blow the bridges.
