Fear of Fanny

HD
IMDb
Poster

In the seventies British TV cookery was dominated by one person: the fearsome Fanny Cradock. Dressed like a drag queen and barking orders at her assistant-cum-husband Johnnie, Cradock terrified and delighted the nation in equal measure. Brian Fillis' dramatisation of Cradock's career is based on interviews with her friends and family, and reveals the private vulnerability behind her tart public persona. Nighty Night creator Julia Davis cakes on the make-up as Fanny; The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss dons Johnnie's monocle.
