So I’m chatting w @dramione-vincet-semper and we’re talking about young Lucius bringing a peacock to Hogwarts instead of an owl and getting in trouble and that sparked me to think of this:
Now I’m picturing in Lucius’ study amongst all the dark arts and ancient spell books he has a single book called “How To Care for Your Peacock” and then hidden even farther back in the recesses of his study is a book that just consists of pretty pictures of different peacocks. It calms him down.
No, nothing to do with the US political dynasty, this is a comedy about
family and friends living in the decade that style forgot

Loosely based on Emma Kennedy’s memoir The Tent, The
Bucket and Me, this sitcom is about her childhood growing up on an
ordinary British council estate.
Emma (Lucy Hutchinson) is a
10-year-old Star Wars-obsessed tomboy, happily tagging along with her
mum and dad, Brenda and Tony Kennedy, played by IT Crowd’s Katherine Parkinson and House of Fools’ Dan Skinner.
Scatty: Katherine Parisnon as Brenda

- who some viewers will know as Matt Berry’s arch-enemy Ray Purchase in
the award-winning sitcom Toast of London - also stars alongside Emma
Pierson as their best mates, couple Tim and Jenny.
so much fun,” says Katherine. “I really fancy my onscreen husband which
helps… and of course, my actual husband as well.
“I’m ashamed to say that I actually like Harry’s look in this, although double denim is so wrong!
Married life: Katherine and real-life husband Harry Peacock
“We’ve got two young children so often we are just dealing
with nappies and exchanging information about them. So it’s been really
nice working together.”
Katherine reveals she was nervous about the role.
“I was looking forward to meeting Emma’s mum but sadly she passed away
before that could happen. But I do feel I know her through the writing. I
wanted to have her big hair actually, but I was told mine would never
In the opening episode, Brenda wants to host a dinner
party “because that’s what they’re doing in Cosmopolitan”. The only
problem is Brenda has never cooked, except for the time she tried to
boil an egg – in a kettle.
So she asks Tony to make a lasagne to impress their friends. “Where am I going to find pasta not in a tin?” he moans.
Emma and Tony accidentally catch Tim “making love soup” with another
woman, while Jenny is at home crying that she’s pregnant.
woman cries, somewhere in the world a man is in terrible trouble,” says
Tony. And that’s even before the dinner party from hell gets under way…
Who’s Who in The Kennedys?
Emma (Lucy Huntchinson)
10 years old with a curious nature and huge problems, such as Julie, the playground bully.
Brenda (Katherine Parkinson)
New age mum to Emma – she doesn’t cook or clean and fancies herself a bit of a feminist.
Tony (Dan Skinner)
Emma’s dad, most often seen in the kitchen cooking or doing the dishes. Fantastic beard.
Jenny (Emma Pierson)
Brenda’s emotional and needy best friend, and also long-suffering girlfriend of Tim.
Tim (Harry Peacock)
Tony’s mate and Jenny’s boyfriend, usually found with a beer in his hand and his shirt off for no reason
Dee & David Palmer (Shola Adewusi and Clive Rowe)
The Kennedys’ unassuming and often confused new neighbours.
The REAL Kennedys
Actress, presenter and ex-MasterChef champ Emma, 48, on how it was thrilling and “slightly weird” to see her childhood on TV
was a brilliant time to be a child,” she remembers. “You’d have your
breakfast, you’d go out the door and you wouldn’t come back until dark.
No one cared where you’d gone.
"My abiding memory – mentioned in
my book The Tent, The Bucket And Me – is of disastrous holidays. My dad
never, ever gave up trying to have a nice time and there was a real
sense of adventure.
“My mother very sadly died three weeks before
we filmed the pilot. In her final weeks I sat with her and read her the
scripts, because the show is really all about her.
"At one point she stopped me and said, ‘You’ll have to change that name, your father still sees them in Sainsburys!’”
Toast and Ray Fucking Purchase are head to head (cough) in a voiceover session for European gay porn. I swear I don’t know how they kept a straight face for this. I would love to see the outtakes from this scene.

So my sister and I were playing Draw Something and she had to draw “Peacock”… Because it’s too obvious to draw an actual Peacock she decided to draw Katherine Parkinson (or like her version of her, with red hair and the red shoes from IT Crowd xD) and her husband whose name is well Peacock…. xD
He kinda looks like a grasshopper in my opinion xD
Channel 4 has commissioned a third, six-part series of the Rose D’Or winning comedy, Toast Of London starring Matt Berry.
Made by Objective Productions and again written by Berry and Arthur Mathews, the comedy stars Berry as Steven Toast, an eccentric actor with a chequered past who spends more time dealing with problems off stage than performing…
For some reason this is the only way I can get this video to repost. This is a blast from the past. First posted 4 years ago, this was the first thing I ever saw Miranda Hart in. Also the guy in the office sketch I just noticed is none other than Harry Peacock aka Ray Purchase.
