Thanks Mike but I didn't do that much

Such a modest man, is our Alain. The truth is that Mike could not have trained under a better master when learning to eat a four-foot diameter pizza with extra cheese without taking a breath...

Says the man who ordered half chicken and chips and when the waiter asked if he could get him anything else said yes the other half chicken then proceeded to devour the other half

I felt sorry for that half chicken - couldn't have it separated from its other half, could I...

Speak for yourself - the only thing we do with sheep in Geordieland is eat them... As for vindaloo, I tried it once; much as I tried siphoning unleaded petrol through a quarter-bore hose. I remember both experiences for the burning, choking, certain conviction that I was about to suffer an agonising death - never again!

Wonder what the inhabitants of Coniston must have thought at the time the film was being made, and having Bluebird K7 - at least the replica of her - on the surface of Coniston. It must have brought back a lot of memories to when Donald Campbell and his father were setting records.

I've heard a few people say how spookily Anthony Hopkins captured Donald's character.

Anthony Hopkins certainly looked the part. From what I have seen of Across the Lake, I think he's got Donald's mannerism down perfectly.
