BritCom Q&A

ARE YOU BEING SERVED?

When they have lunch, what is toad in the hole and can it really be made???

Toad-in-the-hole is a classic English dish consisting of sausage cooked in a batter. Sounds a bit like an English version of our corn dog, doesn't it?

AS TIME GOES BY

Is there a fanclub/web site for As Time Goes BY? I love the writing and acting in this show and miss it terribly.

The Web site (by a fan) at http://atgbcentral.com has tons of information--almost every article and photo of Judi Dench that is available plus much more. It would take days to read everything there. There is a search function, which helps one find information about the various actors, etc. It's the most thorough site that we've found that is still active and constantly updated.

WAITING FOR GOD

What is the name of the theme music for the program "Waiting for God"?

It is the last movement from Franz Schubert's Piano Quintet in A, Opus 114, nicknamed "The Trout Quintet."
