Hmm.  It should have been familiar, given that lot, but wasn't.  What 
a mix.  All that's coming clearly to mind is 'The Fisher King' and a 
couple of the MP films.  Any rumours about casting?  Or shall we do 
it for them, as we've done with Howl, Sophie & Chrestomanci?  :)


Now that I brought it up, did someone propose a Tom, or was it that 
someone was _married to_ a Tom?  Memory's very fuzzy.
