Philomena talks to Frank Skinner about her favorite BBC shows

We haven’t seen Philomena Cunk (aka Diane Morgan) in a while, but her recent conversation with English comedian Frank Skinner is enlightening—especially if you’re in love with the woman. In this 25-minute clip, she discusses her five best choices for BBC clips archived on the their  iPlayer, although they really only get to three of them. If you have access to the BBC iPlayer—I don’t— you can also see the conversation here.

You can pretty much ignore the man on the right. One thing I was delighted to learn is that Philomena’s Bolton accent is not a put-on.

    Oh for heaven’s sake. She’s fantastic (and cute!); those eyes and that delivery!

    Was interested to find out that Caroline Aherne, referred to at the end for her “Mrs. Merton” show, had died on July 2.

      I’m slightly surprised that that is news to anyone, given the amount of coverage it got here. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of any of her series – though I can recognise the hilarity of some of her scripting – but … were they really so restricted to UK TV?

    Frank Skinner is – sadly – religious – a Roman Catholic.

    I loved the sequence where the bright lights of London were compared with the drab life in the provinces! Hilarious!
