Happy Birthday

Many happy returns of the day to The Great Gambon – Sir Michael celebrates his birthday today.

His unorthodox Phillip Marlowe in Dennis Potter’s The Singing Detective remains one of our favourite incarnations of the great character.


His Maigret for ITV is a fave here at The Hornet, too. George Simenon’s great French cop features in 75 novels and 28 short stories. But whenever we read them, we picture Gambon.


Both characters are great hat wearers!


Happy birthday sir, and many more.
