A Favourite Scene In Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling!

    The scene of the open swimming pool or Village lido, brrr I bet that water’s cold! No doubt that’s why none of the young women are actually in the water. Mind you they are always there, always in the swimming pool. They were there when Number 6 passed by that way after leaving Number 9 in the Stone Boat on his way to the helicopter. And then again in ‘Fall Out’ when the order to evacuate The Village had been given and helicopters were taking off from all parts, there they were messing about in a boat and playing with a beach ball. They didn’t take a blind bit of notice! And here they are again as the helicopter was arriving bringing the Colonel to The Village in ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling.’ Didn’t these three young women have anything better to do with their time, like work of some kind? I suppose on one occasion they might have been on their lunch hour, but it can’t always be lunchtime in The Village.......can it?

Be seeing you
