It allows nothing inside that doesn�t make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'Hmm'.

Episode 1 released: 22nd December. Although Terry left the party early, in March 2015 the echoes of the conversations we had, the jokes we shared and the drinks I brought, still rattle around in my head. So, with help from some friends, I’m sharing them. Stories about great men sometimes miss out the human being underneath. Terry was a world-famous author and a genius. He also possessed a wonderful sense of humour. Sometimes delivered in the same way you wrap an iron bar in a sock. In his ca ...
