Dear friends,

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Cure Parkinson’s comedy quiz. I hope you had a great time and didn’t feel Tim and I were two men behaving badly.

Now, you’re probably thinking ‘allo ‘allo, what’s going on here? Well, all the missing bits are 14 sitcom titles. How many can you spot?

I’m not going out of my mind or exaggerating if I say Tim Vine was brilliant, and I had a great time, even though I’m sorry to say I did very badly in the actual quiz and came near the bottom.

If you managed to donate something to Cure Parkinson’s, then thank you. You are my hero. It is an absolutely fabulous charity, one of the best in this country.

Its determination to find a cure is increasingly vital because we now know it isn’t just grannies and grandpas who have Parkinson’s symptoms. Some mother’s do ‘ave ‘em as well and so do some dads. It affects both the oldies in society and the young ones so more than ever we need Cure Parkinson’s to help us live the good life and not stumble along with one foot in the grave.

Thank you again. You can find out more at

You can also check out the missing sitcom titles.
