The Smoking Room

I have managed to injure my leg yet again and have had an enforced break from running (well jogging) for the past 10 days.  To try and maintain some level of fitness, I have been spending the odd hour in the gym (the room I built at the end of the garage).

As I loath sitting on the exercise bike, I have to do something to pass the time and have been re-watching one of the best ever comedy series - The Smoking Room.

Set in a North London office, a few years ago when smoking was allowed indoors, it features 10 main characters who come in and out of the room. It is brilliantly written and it's such a shame that the writer, Brian Dooley hasn't written more comedy - the man is a genius.
If you see the DVD, which is bound to be cheap, buy it and enjoy!  Here's a clip where Robin comes out... after years of being in the closet:


  1. Sorry to hear about your leg. When is your race?

  2. Calf problems - and I was behind schedule for the race on the 26th anyway!
