It was gratifying yesterday to open my copy of Britain’s favourite newspaper (“Just Say Aye” – or even i – as the adverts have it) and discover two letters from readers agreeing with my assessment of the film The Artist, which has been lauded by film critics, but left me strangely unmoved.

Martin Kemp is Emeritus Professor in the history of art at Trinity College Oxford. He so is: he has written extensively about Leonardo da Vinci. He is conceivably the world's top go-to guy for Leonardo studies.

Fred Dibnah is a towering institution in his native Bolton. A statue of the steam-engine loving steeplejack stands proudly not far from the majestic town hall where he was first discovered at work by a television producer in the 1970s. Going beyond the myth of the down-to-earth Lancashire sage with the greasy flat cap could have been difficult in his own backyard but Aelish Michael's play is ultimately successful in getting to the real person. Colin Connor fully assumes the character of Dibnah, perfectly imitating the accent and mannerisms of one of television's original reality stars. He is by turns passionate and funny, selfish and childlike, needy and driven. Ironically, as he points out early on, Dibnah was most famous in the 1980s and 1990s for demolishing the industrial heritage that he so cherished. He would rather have been a creator but alas – apart from the steam engine he built in his dying days and the aborted mineshaft he sunk into his back garden – it was for the spectacular chimney drops for which he was best known and to which hundreds of spectators would turn up as if attending a hanging.
