Apparently Ma Popehater can't understand why Clifton diocese's favourite theologian Professor Norah Batty - head of Cleggy studies at the University of Littlehampton - was dropped from the diocesan winter entertainment schedule.
The problem is that too many people who have received copies of the original script and have been comparing it to Norah's interpretation which hasn't gone down too well with Compo, who says, "She just won't learn her lines!"
Foggy complained, "The rest of us are doing Summer Wine and she is doing Dr Who!"
"The trouble is the viewers want it straight and she is method acting all over the place" said a spokesperson. The big question is can the executive, who until recently have been encouraging improvisation and free interpretation, have been forced to look again a policy, many want to keep her in the cast of Cafod (an everyday story of Catholic folk), but even here viewers are urging a change. Yet Ma P's scripts are still on sale at the back of most retail outlets, so a change seems doubtful, at the moment.
