Liz and her Mum
Last year I got to write for Liz Shaw. It was the last thing that Caroline John recorded before passing away. I got to meet her at the recording. She'd brought in jam.
She was wonderful, and I was so very sad when she died.
There'd been tentative plans for another adventure for Liz and her mother, which sadly didn't get very far. Here's the opening:
LIZ'S CAR. NIGHT. (SFX: Engine running. It is raining. Car door opens and Liz gets in hurriedly) LIZ: Drive, mum! Drive! EMILY: I take it the meeting at UNIT didn't go well? LIZ: No. EMILY: And how is the Brigadier? (FX: Distant thumping noise) LIZ: He's in the boot... OPENING TITLES Anyway. That's as far as it got. No idea if I'd have got away with it. But I'd love to have tried. Here also is her son's Just Giving page.
