I understand they're a form of commode popular in a certain district of New York. These townies, eh? Damned unhygenic if you ask me.
Indeed so. They have no clue of the quality time one spends in the "shed" under the extremely healthy grape arbor reading one's toilet paper. Plus for our "climate change" friends it is ever so "sustainable" and carbon neutral.

Never saw him live on the stage but I am sure his characters would have all been played with the same skill and realism as those he portrayed on TV or in film . Another great actor who will be sadly missed . Agree his Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill in Sharpe was superb .

He was as despicable as the other great villain, Major General Sir Henry Simmerson played so well by that other great character actor, Bernard Cornwell.
Slight point of order. Bernard Cornwell was the author who created all the characters. Sir Henry Simmerson was played by Michael Cochrane.

Er, that incompetent boob (he who lost the King's Colours!) was played by Michael Cochrane, not Byron Cornwell (who wrote the Sharpe stories) You're just pulling my leg, aren't you? :?
