Brian & Charles

This is such a funny, gorgeous short from the amazing David Earl aka Brian Gittins/Cumbo. David has been making such fantastic stuff for so long now, but this might be my fave thing of his so far.

It’s also co-written by the superb Chris Hayward, produced by the excellent Rupert Majendie, and of course fantastically shot by Jim Archer. Enjoy…

Friday Night Dinner… series 5…

by Robert Popper on August 23, 2017 · 0 comments


Yes, it’s finally happening. Actually, we’ve known for quite a long time, but it always takes ages before these things can be announced officially, as we have to finalise actors’ contracts, and make sure the dates work with everyone. But anyway – I’m really thrilled, and have been busy writing for several months – currently on episode 4 (of 6).

Thanks so much to everyone that tweeted or emailed me to ask if there’d be a 5th series. I’m so sorry I didn’t reply – it’s hard to know what to say when you actually know, but you’re not allowed to tell anyone, so apologies to all of you and thanks again.

We’re filming at the beginning of 2018 – so see you on the telly some time after.

I am ashamed to say I completely forgot it had been exactly one year. How can I ever forgive myself?

Thanks to @WardRuther for sending me this slice of heaven/hell.

I’m in Soviet heaven
