man remembers the highs and lows of his life
31 October 2008 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Part of the BBC Noel Coward collection, "Me & the Girls" opens with a man ("George", played by Tom Courtenay) in a hospital bed, reminiscing about the days gone by with his dance troupe. Then we're back in the hospital room, with a man saying good night to him, and his various friends pop by to say hello and catch up, like Mavis (Nichola McAuliffe). She was also the voice of James Bond's car, and was in Dr. Who. Lots of flashbacks going on, like with ex-lover Robert Glenister ("Harry" ), who was ALSO in the Dr. Who series. Another friend who stops by is Catherine Rabett (Sally), who had actually dated Prince Andrew for a bit. Open, honest, early British story of a charming gay man, dying in the hospital, remembering the highs and lows of his life. Too bad they don't list the music used in this - there is a beautiful classical piece they use over and over, but I can't place it - hopefully someone else can....?
