Talk about R.E.G, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and the others here

Some time ago, before I'd gotten the Wall-O-Withnail blog up and running properly, I printed out all the photos of the Wall, along with the screen-caps from the movie where the items appeared. It turned out to be around 30 pages. I made three copies of this booklet, with a cover letter explaining the project. I sent one to Richard E. Grant, one to Paul McGann, and one to Bruce Robinson.

Have not heard back from Mr. McGann yet, but Bruce Robinson was kind enough to mail me a Withnail poster and inscribe it with my name and the phrase "you are quite possibly insane" - and his signature, and the date.

This morning, I opened my email and found THIS:

"Apologies for taking way too long to respond to your amazing collection of 'Withnail and I' memorabilia.

Your dedication is extraordinary.

Many thanks for sending me your nostalgic compilation.

Cheers and 'Chin-chin'


Excuse me while I run outside and scream my head off.

... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.

They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...
