consider going is priceless. You find out some of those things you wondered about in his Time Team Series. ("All we found was a lead toy horse.")
I am really impressed by Sir Tony. His walks at his age amaze me, because I am a bit younger and could only dream about such a feat.
Still, I am not sure I really want to know about his use of drugs, being lazy in school, and all of that. Seems to be a British thing. Stephen Fry
is much the same. But, back to the good stuff, want to know what happened when he was knighted by the Duke of Cambridge? You know
it was not boring. Hang in there Tony. Mick Aston said that he was really good. And he was right.
Sir Tony Robinson always comes across as someone you wish you could get to know, when you see him on t.v. You'd love to have him for a next-door neighbor, or at the very least, shake his hand and thank him for all his great work. By the end of No Cunning Plan, you'll be wishing that more than ever. Well worth the read.
It begs the question though on how did he get a knighthood? There is nothing he reveals here that would make you think he was a significant contributor to something worthy of a sword touching his shoulder and being called Sir Tony. It might be him being modest and downplaying things or I just didn't see the tree for the forest.
He provides interesting insights into the creative process with writing, writing and rewriting, read throughs and rehearsals and some of the actors of his time. We also learn of another dimension in his life story and that is of politics and union work. I enjoyed the book and if I could give it 3.5 stars I would have rather than 3. It is well written and with a degree of candour, self deprecation, honesty and humour.
