094: SFFCH – Plunkett & Macleane

094 Plunkett and Macleanr

Get your massive powdered wigs ready, as it’s time once again for ‘Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray’, on this occasion talking about Rich’s choice of ‘Plunkett & Maclean’ from 1999. Listen in as Rich, Ant and Abi chat about this British bit of hokum, with a then soon to be famous starry cast. Is it a modernised historical drama? Is it an excuse to make everyone a bit dirty? Well, listen in and maybe you’ll find out. It is rare to find a sympathetic Robert Carlyle character, the prototypes for the Armstrong and Miller airmen, and common people aplenty in a period romp. On the other hand they do have the old pocket bullet stopper trick, and a slightly problematic female character so the regular boxes are ticked. (Ep 94, Rec 2015)
