I spent the years, from my teens onward watching Benny. The man was pure genius. I didn't notice back then. So often we do this. It is when we lose such a treasure that we realis what we have actully lost.

Thank you for your brillant site.

For "Louise Whatling": Perhaps I'm expressing a minority viewpoint but I very much enjoyed the sketches featuring the "Little Angels" who, often enough, behaved more like "Little Devils!" It was refreshing to see Benny "victimized" by somebody other than a bimbo or a battle-ax. So what if the kids weren't polished actors; Benny wanted it that way.

Great site - long time fan, as are my sons. Great place to visit. It's nice to see that the Angels were as beautiful as I remember them being. It's also great to be reminded of some very funny, funny skits. Certainly wish that the shows were currently airing. Ah well!
Thanks,
Vince

Trawling through the guest book I noticed a few comments about Britains all pervasive political correctness. This brought to mind an article in the Australian magazine People. Benny was apparently considering resuming his cancelled show in France. People magazine summed it up this way. BENNY HILL FLEES DREARY POMS.

Hi All, I was very amused to find my name on google. Yes I am Louise Whatling "Hill's Little Angel" and to Ian who disliked the Kid's sketches and thought they were too painful to watch too bad they were fantastic to film. Thank you for all of you who have shown support for Dennis & his family, its a great loss. Thanks for all your support Benny would have been deeply touched.
I will be emailing the editor of this site to commend him on his amazing job.

Thanks All again.

I enjoyed Benny up until about '85 when the comedy became laboured and the dance routines were no more than aerobics exercises. The Little Angels were excrutiatingly painful to watch. I imagine Benny must have cringed at times to see what his show became. Best years were from about '76 to '84. The show copped a lot of of flak from various quarters but in the main it was no more than a case of ugly fat arsed feminists resenting good looking girls unashamedly strutting their stuff. I recall that boring tosser Ben Elton having a go at the show. Well I know who I and millions of others would prefer to watch. Favourite Angel was Louise English. Favourite dance scene was Runaway. I am presently enjoying reruns of the show on UKTV.

Marian Davies worked with Benny Hill for 20 years as a Ladybird. These days she offers presentations through the SpeakersAgency. One of her talks is entitled: "Benny Hill - the man behind the clown." Perhaps, NewVideo/A&E would be willing to hire Marian to participate in a Bonus Feature for the final Set 6 of the "Complete & Unadulterated" Benny Hill series of DVDs. (Ex-Hill players Bettine le Beau and Johnny Hutch also give talks for the SpeakersAgency and should be considered as possible Bonus Feature participants.)

For Simplesteps: Thanks for all the info. I think that Lorraine Whitmarsh was the girl who was in Pan's People mark 2 with Sarah B from 76-77. She joined Hot Gossip at the same time as Sarah and stayed till 1980. Do you know what happened to the other girls from the last Hot Gossip line up and did any others become Angels?

For David Hawkins: As far as I know there isn't a dedicated site for Hot Gossip, although I agree there should be one! I don't think that is Virginia Hartley in the Unknown Angels. Annie Dunkley was the blonde in Peugots 'Thelma & Louise' ad's, she was (is) a fantastic dancer!

Does anyone know where I can get copies of the scripts for the sketches from the Benny Hill show?
I'm sure i found a site a couple of years ago but Google as I might don't seem to be able to find again. He was without doubt one of the funniest men in the history of TV and I'd dearly like to find some of his stuff to do (albeit poorly in comparison) a bit of a comedy thing at a charity concert we're doing. Can anyone help?

For Simplesteps: Is there a site for Hot Gossip? If there isn't there should be one.
Lorraine Doyle was only in a hand full of Hot Gossip numbers inc Shaft & Contact. I think Ann
,from Hot Gossip's last line up,is acting now and has done one or two adds.
There is an unknown Angel on the 'Who are Hill's Angels', Is she an X Hot Gossip Dancer, I'm thinking she may be Viginia Hartley?

Hi, Lorraine Whitmarsh was in the original Hot Gossip line up and Starship Troopers Video with Donna Fielding,Perri Lister,Virginia Hartley,Carol Fletcher,Dominique Wood and Ms.Brightman.Susie and Frances were a couple of years above me at The Arts Educational School in the 80's. Frances still models you can find her on www.motmodels.com. Last I heard of Susie she was living in the West Indies

For Simplesteps: Do you know when Lorraine Whitmash joined Hot Gossip? Lorraine Doyle and Lorraine Whitmash arn't the same. You are right about Frances and Susie. I have just had a look at my collection of Hot Gossip tapes and the Human Snooker number from the first show of 89. Susie is already in the who's who page, Lindsey I didn't know the last name of but she is in the Angel Con 2 page and I will send info to WB on Frances Wingate so he can send Shawn a screen grab.

Wicked site!I thought the Lorraine from Hot Gossip was Lorraine Whitmarsh. Are her and Lorraine Doyle one of the same? Susie Waring and Frances Wingate (She's in the human snooker routine)danced with Hot Gossip & both were in their final line up. The Lindsey from 'Club Chic A Go Go'is Lindsey Cole (later Ashton)She was in Gossip's final line up too.

I have e-mailed Networkdvd about the Benny Hill UK Annuals and the fact that they have no extra features on the discs.They replied by saying that if I have any ideas that they will be passed onto the heads of Networkdvd. If anyone else in the UK have any ideas on extra features let me know here and I will pass them on to Robert Mair.

re Benny Quickie: This Just Ain't Your Day ["Naughty Early Years - Set 3, Vol. 2, Episode 7(28) - Apr 21, 1976, final minute of Chapter 5.] This sketch attempts to get laughs from a gang rape. Earlier (my #79), "The Lad" made light of rape at the office. Both rape sketches were directed/produced by Mark Stuart. What were he and "The Lad" thinking!

To 'mel': That "short illness" could've been the culmination of years of lingering resentment at Thames over their dropping of Mr. Hill - and Mr. Kirkland had never forgiven the company for that, and remained bitter about it the rest of his life. Of course, it's just speculation, but let's say I have a sense . . .

To Mel: I don't think it was said what Mr Kirklands brief illness was. I didn't even know that he died untill I read it on Benny's Place. Not many of the UK papers reported his death. If I find out, I leave a message here.

To 'mel': One factor in difference is who's distributing them. The "Golden Greats" and "Golden Classics" DVD's were distributed by HBO Home Video. However, they've been taken out of print, because of A&E Video's "Complete & Unadulterated" issues of Mr. Hill's complete Thames TV shows. And the "Golden Classics" set consisted of compilation edits from different shows, rather than complete episodes as was the case with "Golden Greats." (I myself never got either DVD compilation, because of the A&E sets.)

For Mel: The new DVD's that are out are the original one hour shows as they were broadcast in the UK. Video's like One Night Stand, Video Sideshow ect are compilations taken from years 1976-1983 and the Golden Laughter videos like Golden Titters are also original one hour shows which covers the years 1984-1985,1988-1989.

For Muesliboy: Jo Thomas only did the one Benny Hill Show Jan/6/82,however, one left over sketch from that show, The one where she is blind folded, was used for the next show, 10/Feb/82. She can be seen on the R1 dvd Benny Hill the Hill's Angels Years 78-81 and Sep's 82-85 doing an interview. I'm not sure about other show's she has done but I do know that she is still a model.

I remember The Love Machine! Claire Lutter was my favourite....but they were all were great. Does anyone remember them performing 'Walk on the Wild Side' on Wheeltappers and Shunters Social outing to Blackpool I think it was? So sexy.

Plus does anyone have information about Jo Thomas? She was both a good dancer and actress as she appeared in quite a few of the sketches.

Benny was a legend and a comic great.
