Do tell! Unless it's scatological of course. Prunes do have "properties"!


So they do! It was from Blind in One Ear, I believe, one of the many times Patrick had quit drinking. His doctor had advised him to start drinking prune juice. When he showed up at the pub to meet Ian and ordered it, Ian's reaction was pretty funny, as was their little exchange. I think you'd have to read it for it to have the full effect.

Thanks Timeless! I've got the book but haven't read it all through for ages. I'll dip in.

It should be in the chapter for season one somewhere. The other good bit is when Patrick wonders if the title to Hot Snow ought to be changed to Hot Water, not realising snow=cocaine. Ian proves he has more street cred. Laughing

Hot Snow is a brilliant title. I'm surprised it's never been used since as a movie title or name of a TV series.

no doubt about it...the 'sauce' shorted Ian's career, (could have been bigger etc)
and eventually, his life....sorta sad.

I've never seen that pic of Mr Hendry before. Nice colouring job - had me fooled.

Yes, very good colouring, and I've never seen that one of Ian, either. There don't appear to be as many pics of him floating around.

Thanks, both. With that shirt he looks like he was having a midlife crisis before Patrick and his paisley shirts! Laughing

There is another pic like this of him putting it on. Looks like he won his bet! Smile

I've got a jumper I use as a pyjama top, similar to that! Well it beats the knitting pattern cardigan he modelled.

I recoloured the pic above but it's not come out that well. In spite of the nearby window there's a shadow on his face and arm which creates a problem with the skin tone.

I've uploaded it onto my website but I might take it down in time as it's irritating me - Laughing !!

How can you wear anything in bed? I'd feel like I was suffocating!

Of course, we all know we saw Hendry again as Gunner in TNA "To Catch A Rat". He looked very aged there, even though he was 9 years younger than Pat, who looked very good, especially in comparison. Hendry was born in 1931; Pat in 1922.

Pat drank on and off, but no doubt has much better drinking genes, given his alcoholic mother lived to 95. Plus, Pat went back and forth from drinking to eating health foods at nudist spas, and such, so did give his body long breaks from the booze at times, until he gave it up completely around 1980 or so. It seems that Ian simply was an active drinker since Pat worked with him (and probably before). Again, very sad.

I used to live with an Austrian who kept the windows open in the depths of winter. I'd regularly wake up in the morning with ice in my eyebrows. Still, in these days of duvets with high tog ratings it is a bit old-fashioned to wear a t-shirt or cotton top in bed I suppose Smile

As to Ian Hendry's drinking, it does tend to dominate discussions about him which in some ways is a shame, it overshadows his good work which is well worth watching. That's why I was so pleased to see "The Girl on the Trapeze" especially in its restored quality (I had deliberately avoided watching it in its earlier forms or on the net).

He was a smoker too - I don't know when Patrick Macnee gave up cigarettes but that must have contributed to his better health as well. Sadly for that generation (and earlier) smoking was de rigeur - I wish I could persuade my parents to give up, but it's probably too late now.
