What, never? No, never… well, hardly ever

do I go to see Gilbert and Sullivan productions.  And good as tonight’s am-dram performance of “HMS Pinafore” was, I still left dredging from my memory Tom Lehrer’s assessment – “you can always rely on Gilbert and Sullivan for a rousing finale full of words and music and signifying …. nothing.” (Clementine)

And also, I now know where Russel T Davies got all those ridiculous hand-waving shouting and wrapping up of plots in 30 squeezed seconds at the end of an otherwise acceptable episode of Doctor Who.
