Bob Golding's uncanny impersonation in this one-man show is a great feat of empathy as well as mimicry. He knows how Eric Morecambe's dodgy heart ticked as well as the tics of style that were his trademark. So he's able to transmit a sense of the psychological and professional background to some of the comic mannerisms – the who-put-the-glue-in-the-ginger-beer, goofy stalling-for-time grin (perfected whenever he had to out-stare the camera during cock-ups in the early days of television) or the compulsive specs-waggling playfulness that had him joking with everyone from the one-armed commissionaire at Broadcasting House (joshingly refused a complimentary ticket to a recording because he wouldn't be able to clap) to Luton Town FC (who, if he were to have a coronary on the stands, would at least be able to pick up something before the end of the season). He thought he was being a pal to everyone, but the feeling grows here that being a constant caution was a way of fending off real intimacy. For that, you have occasionally to let the other person dictate the terms of the encounter.

A painter and decorator who refuses to use red paint because he supports Leeds United is embroiled in a controversy over the city council's plans to repaint three large gates on the main roundabout at Crossgates, in east Leeds. The council intend to replace the current white, blue and silver with red, white and black. When told that Leeds fans didn't want them in Manchester United colours, Councillor Pauline Grahame said: "I've never heard such a load of rubbish." Gary Edwards urged fellow fans to contact their MPs to "step in and stop this mindless vandalism", and added: "Repainting the gates will cost £143,000. I will paint them free of charge – in all-white."

By common consent, Ray Wilson is England's most accomplished left-back of the last half-century. But there was a time, a couple of seasons before he cemented his lasting pre-eminence through his peerless displays for the 1966 World Cup-winning team, that Wilson looked to have a serious rival for his place in Alf Ramsey's yet-to-be-settled combination.
