CHEERIO TERRY... AND THANKS

I had to post briefly about the sad death of my favourite Python, Terry Jones


Hilarious chap and brilliant medieval historian. Obviously there are the well known Monty Python sketches which spring to mind, but for me the scene that captured his humour and medieval interest was from his TV series Crusades, in which he attempts to interview the descendant of a goose which led one of the pilgrimages to the Holy Land. RIP Mr. Jones.

  2. Indeed.. Crusades and of course the script of Labyrinth:) Crusades was one of the last TV series to keep me eagerly anticipating the next episode. The epic storytelling, the reconstructions of siege machines, the little sketches of animated mosaics and paintings and of course the silly humour delivered by Mr Jones in his slightly lisping tones.
