Phillip Adams’s latest column in the Weekend Australian (12 May 07) is a superb comment on the famed interview between Melvin Bragg and Dennis Potter.

Potter’s works have provoked disgust in the more easily shockable segments of the British public
CBS’ new show, Viva Laughlin, is described as a mystery drama with music. Was anybody thinking Cop Rock when that show was first announced.
Of course they were. But I hope a few, like me, were also thinking Pennies From Heaven, the brilliant British series from Dennis Potter, perhaps the finest TV writer ever, particularly since the show is based on a British Import.
At this years’ BAFTAs, David Tennant, currently the lead of BBC1’s Doctor Who, presented the Dennis Potter award to ‘his boss’, scriptwriter Russell T Davies. Russell is a great writer in my opinion too! :)
