    If the credits didn't say it was John Gielgud, I'm not sure I would ever have been convinced he was Ashenden, never mind Malcolm in the middle all those generations later........

    When Stanley Baxter was impersonating John Gielgud or Malcolm Muggeridge, I was never certain which one he was in fact "doing".

    With Malcolm Muggeridge you feel that if... as a young man... he had entered the church to train as a priest
    (instead of entering fleet street as a pen pusher ) he would have made it all the way to Archbishop of Canterbury....
    with his looks... that amazing voice.... his self assurance.... he was a shoe in for the part.

    But in the end he got his share of fame as a TV pundit and a regular on Any Questions !

    Likewise with Sir John... with those looks and that voice.... definitely Bishop material !
