Morecambe & Wise Thames Special - 18th October 1978
Eric & Ernie's first ever show for Thames featuring Donald Sinden, Judi Dench (my word I never knew she was so young!) Leonard Sachs & Peter Cushing, with help from Barry Cryer & John Junkin who also wrote the script with additional material from Eric & Ernie.
So off to Thames went Eric & Ernie & with this show they got off to a flying start, hilarious stuff from the moment the pair are chucked out off the BBC van to the end of the show via a fantastic Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde sketch.
And by the looks of it this is the last appearance of the gorgeous Ann Hamilton with Eric & Ernie as she didn't appear in their Thames series one?
Two more Thames Christmas specials to follow when this one has seeded.
