Axegrinder is full or respect for thesp Kenneth Branagh after his sterling work for the BBC on Sunday night. First, he appeared in the title role as a Scandinavian detective in the new drama series Wallender.
Then, immediately afterwards, he popped up on the BBC News to defend the corporation’s behaviour in the wake of the latest voting controversy in Strictly Come Dancing. This time round he was playing the role of Jon Beazley, controller of the BBC’s entertainment production.
At least, that’s how it appeared to this pair of eyes. Or perhaps they are somehow related.
