Sir Patrick is one of the few remaining examples we have of the great British eccentric - we wish him well.

Lucky Llareggub - no more cannibals in our village, we ate the last one yesterday..

The article's photo doesn't do Patrick justice but the article is wonderful; almost out of this world.
I can no longer watch Patrick as I'm abroad these days but as I remember, and I never missed his show, he always had wild hair and one eye closed - hence my mild complaint about the photo.
One time I wrote to him with a question about something he'd mentioned on Sky At Night and he sent me a handwritten and signed postcard reply which said simply: "I don't know what you mean!"
Yes, a wonderful article. The best I've read on h2g2 I think.smiley - smiley
