Stephen Fry is an eloquent and erudite host on any topic. That's what makes him the natural choice to present BBC2's QI and as well as countless Radio 4 documentaries and panel shows. But Stephen Fry on a subject as close to his heart as this? That's a different and special proposition. The last film he made that was this personal, 2006's The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, won an Emmy.

There is nothing like a really good pantomime dame to satisfy an audience's deep desire to be dominated. This is proved again, to deliriously enjoyable effect, in Dick Whittington and His Cat at the Lyric Hammersmith. It's hard to believe that Shaun Prendergast is making his first foray into stage-damehood with this magnificent performance as Sarah the Cook. Modelling a succession of outrageous outfits and dominating the proceedings with his raucous gravel-voice and his wickedly glinting, manic personality, he comes across as the gaudy love-child of Dame Edna and Timmy Mallet.
