Exclusive Yarns...
Seeing Patricia Hodge playing Mrs Coulter at the National over the last couple of nights put me in mind of what for me is one of her most memorable roles. That of a drunken Nanny Agency owner Estelle in 1987's Exclusive Yarns. "the only Nanny Agency with no naffing nannies on it's books". If you've not seen it you should, it's a hilarious spoof / drama about a TV show about a woolshop in Tunbridge Wells. A bit like Acorn Antiques. It starred Maureen Lipman as Tamara, Lesley Jospeh as Pippa as well as the afore mentioned Patricia Hodge. It even transferred from TV to the West End. Wonderful stuff.
