Week 25: Dr Death, The Two Ronnies
So staying with the two Ronnies for another week this sketch seems strangely appropriate given death is on everyone’s mind given the sad passing of the Queen.

It is ironic to think when this sketch was made, he had probably already started murdering the many victims. As I said in my introduction to this collection, we live in a dark world where comedy gives us a powerful respite from the reality of our present existence.
