Wow, that was fantastic. Thoughtprovoking, humorous, critical, heartwarming and downright funny.

If that man needed any more respect, he's got it after tonight.
I'm sure there will be cries of discontent but I personally couldn't argue with anything in it. It all made perfect sense.
It was sad and almost haunting to see him sit there listening to his speech being read by someone else and sometimes you could think it was the first time he heard it (which, considering his condition, is actually likely).

It's a shame this was on so late but I'm sure it's going to be a hit on iplayer and be repeated a few times across the digital channels.
ETA: It's now on iplayer (for those of you in the UK or elsewhere with some fancy IP masking software).

Thank you, Sir Terry. Few things or people make me cry, you did this evening.

Just remembered a conversation with someone in the queue on Saturday evening. The woman mentioned that her husband(?) had been involved in restoration work of St. Alban's Cathedral and that there was an accident during which a worker fell off the roof and was quite badly injured. During his investigation it turned out that exactly 100 years earlier somebody had fallen to their death which led me to suspect that the Cathedral demanded a sacrifce every 100 years, which - much to my surprise - got me laughs instead of shocked silence. ;o)
