Ep 263: The Great Dangerous Davies 40th Anniversary Walk

We're back! To celebrate the start of a brand-new year, CheapShow has decided to make a very special podcast. This week, to celebrate it's 40th anniversary (ok, we just missed it but...) Paul and Eli are taking to the streets of North West London to try and track down the locations of a film no one has probably even heard of! In 1981 a TV movie called "Dangerous Davies" was broadcast, starring Bernard Cribbins, based on a series of barely popular books. As it turns out, it was filmed in the area Eli grew up, so he decides to use this expedition as an excuse to revisit some of his old childhood haunts... and Paul has to put up with it! Is this our most pointless episode to date? Probably! Come join the Cheap Chaps on yet another walkabout episode that quickly strays from the path.
