    Basil Brush's Misters

    I'm with YW on this. Some of us old farts have got longer memories that go back further than Yes Minister/Prime Minister & Heartbeat. To us he'll always be Mr. Derek.

    Basil Brush's Misters

    Many years ago, I pointed out to TMIB, in his role as DDP-meister, that Derek Fowlds' DDP bio made no mention of Basil Brush. He suggested I take a closer look, whereupon I discovered, to my delight and amusement, he'd been listed as "Mr. Derek Fowlds". Alas, this year, perhaps as some portent to his demise, the 'Mr.' is missing! Hopefully this is just temporary as a result of setting up this year's DDP, and it will reappear with the next update.
