The man who lost his head
Watched Martin Clunes in 'The man who lost his head' last night. I have always loved his acting but have been a huge fan since the TV series 'William and Mary' in which he played a funeral director in love with Mary, who is a midwife. The way the series depicted midwives was excellent-very true to life, and promoted natural childbirth. Anyway, I really enjoyed last night's show which told the story of an English museum director who visits New Zealand to look at the possibility of repatriating a Maori artifact. My favorite line was a joke that one of the characters told-what do Maori families do when they cannot afford a camera and want a family photo-they drive very fast past a speed camera!
