My TomTalks

The man himself, the one, the only Tom Baker has lent his voice to the new advertising campaign for the TalkTalk internet provider. 

As if one big fruity voice wasn’t enough, they’ve also roped in Brian Blessed (King Yrcanos, Trial of a Time Lord: Mindwarp) for what can only be described as one of the most bizarre exchanges in advertising history.

Thanks to the link above you can visit the Guardian website and listen as Tom Baker berates Brian Blessed: "You flash harry!"  This is a radio-only advertisement at present, but how amusing would a television version be?

(NB Kasterborous neither endorses nor condemns any ISP, unless they are able to fulfil their basic, advertised service.  If they cannot, they’re obviously rubbish and you shouldn’t give them any money.)
