Posted · 39 Comments

A burning question, for those of you who’ve read The Cuckoo’s Calling and/or The Silkworm: who, in a TV or film adaptation of the novels, would play Cormoran Strike?

I’m so terribly sorry; I have been too busy cooing over my niece, Baby Edith, to even consider doing any work. She’s a total distraction.

Caroline Hirons searches through the contents of my handbag and finds them to be very disappointing, then I try and sort through her handbag and the five thousand items that she has shoehorned into it.

OK look, I think we may have come to the end of the road with Celebrities who have hair like my Dog. We’re on the tenth instalment and finding victims is getting increasingly difficult.

Yep. The ninth celebrity with hair like my dog. Who’d have thought there were so many of them? It’s obviously a very “in demand” kind of style. I’ve given you a diverse selection of shaggy-maned celebs – Owen Wilson, Richard Branson, Courtney Love – but now, as we begin to scrape the Google Image proverbial [...]
