I realise now that when people say "Burn the witch!" they've probably been referring to a specific incident (in Trumpton? really?) rather than using a generic historic phrase.

You never saw the famous episode when Mrs Honeyman (the Chemist's wife) was accused of being a witch and burnt at the stake as she floated when ducked in Farmer Bells pond ?
It's the episode after the one where Mrs Dingle (the postmistress) was caught having a gang bang with Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb by Mr Robinson (the window cleaner) which was embarrassing for her and it's revealed that this is the reason Windy Miller drinks, she had promised him that time with the boys from Pippin Fort was a one off.

;D


But I dont get the joke. Or perhaps its a 5-second joke, perhaps better suited to 2 frames in Private Eye.
"Epsiode of Trumpton turns into Wicker Man". Yeah ok ...  but for 4 minutes?

Perhaps I expected a lot more, having read this thread first and delayed watching the vid! Still, at least they tried to do something clever, so kudos for breaking the mould a bit.

I wondered if it was a reference to the middle english utopian village so beloved of That Woman's supporters.  Those places are always full of sinister goings-on.  Witchcraft is still alive and well in the woods above Hawnby on the Yorkshire Moors y'know!

‘It is my belief, Watson, founded upon my experience, that the lowest and vilest alleys in London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.’  Sherlock Holmes.
Sic transit and all that..

Dear Noris McWhirter,

I have a black, circular, vinyl disc, with a small hole in the centre.  Is this a record?
