6 degrees of separation of Doris the Pig Deity from Wandin Valley

Just cos I'm bored....and taking over the universe was put on hold until after lunch time tomorrow.

Paul McDermott (whom some regard as a God) lent his voice to a movie, Medusa, about a snake-headed Goddess alongside John Safran who is often Speaking in Tongues with Father Bob Maguire who frequently speaks to God and who was interviewed by a tv demi-god Andrew Denton who started out as a delivery man on A Country Practice way back in 1987...with Doris the Pig God.

As you were....

Um. What? Is this an aussie joke? I don't get it? You got some
'splaining to do, Jayne.

Jayne said...

Ooooo, mind-melding, Andrew? :P

Hear, hear, Lisa lol.

Sorry, Debby; A Country Practice was a long-running rural soapie here in Oz and one of the more infamous animals was Doris the alcoholic pig.
Here's a list of them all HERE ;)

I'm with Cazzie, the minute I read Doris the pig I teared up at Molly's death.

Never watched ACP, but still remember everyone talking about it at school the next day. As for Paul - when the DAAS were on The Big Gig I preferred Tim, but Paul has aged better.

You didn't used to be the researcher on James Burke's 'Connections' back in the 70s, did you?

Jayne said...

At this rate I'll be handing around the tissues, J :P

Oh! I voted for Tim when he contested the seat of Kooyong way back when although Paul was the preferred DAAS. I don't think poor old Richard Fidler inspired anyone, Scott lol.

Not as yet, Brian, but we watch his shows on pay-tv all the time knowing it's only a matter of time before he mentions Singleton Thorpe.

Brian Hughes said...

You still watch James Burke? I thought he'd died in 1975.

Jayne said...

No, it was just his dress sense that turned up its toes :P
