The Robbie Coltrane Special

By 1989, Robbie Coltrane had become massively popular as a comic actor, not just through his appearances in The Comic Strip, Black Adder, French & Saunders and films such as Mona Lisa but also in the highly successful BBC series Tutti Frutti alongside Emma Thompson. LWT and Channel 4 commissioned a Robbie Coltrane comedy special, to be produced and directed by Geoff Posner and produced by Geoff and Geoffrey Perkins, the same team who would create that other award-wining multi-character vehicle in Harry Enfield’s “Norbert Smith - A Life”.

Written by a familiar team of top collaborators, headed by Geoff Atkinson, Richard Curtis, Kim Fuller et al, the one hour special show transmitted in September 1989, and featured, amongst other delights, an extended St Trinians spoof with Coltrane playing the headmistress.
