64 mins. We dedicate this show to supporting cast members who had their day in the sun, but haven’t been seen for some time. It’s time for misty eyed fondness as we remember some of our favourite characters who never had their own series, but fulfilled a special role. Also Dr Marvin Monroe as Batman, the importance of butlers, and crotch sniffing.
