No wonder Doctor Who was so good last week.
Richard Curtis wrote it.
He, along with Rowan Atkinson wrote some of the Blackadder series (maybe one of the best things ever on TV), Four Weddings and a Funeral along with Love Actually and Pirate Radio which are two of my favorite movies. He also directed the last two.
And Bill Nighy is in both of them.
Of course he is...
Really, Pirate Radio is just a great flick with a fantastic soundtrack...if you have not seen it go rent it.
