“A whatsit in the morning thingummy, sir?”

As I read this I could hear Bertie and Jeeves so clearly in my mind, could picture them too but it was this sentence, the thought of Jeeves repeating what Bertie had sad that made my smile grow even wider.

“Why, only a few minutes before this broadcast began I was watching another one that featured a British alienist, working for the police. And I could swear I had seen him before, too. Quite recently, in fact. Do we know any British alienists?”

“I believe the correct modern terminology is psychoanalyst. Or psychiatrist. And no, I am pleased to say, sir does not number any psychiatrists among his close personal friends.”

Err I gather that is a reference to Stephen Fry's character on Bones? (Don't watch it so I had to ask to be sure I recognized the reference correctly)

Overall this was a clever and very delightful piece! *g*

Yes, it was a reference to Fry's character, whose name escapes me. Bones used to be on just before House.
Thanks for commenting.
