because her husband Albert had just passed away.

She goes to the mortuary to look at her dearly departed, and the instant she sees him she starts wailing and crying.

One of the attendants rushes up to comfort her. Through her tears she
Explains that she was upset because Albert was wearing a black suit and
that it was his dying wish to be buried in a blue suit. The attendant
Apologises and explains that they always put the bodies in a black suit
as a matter of course, but he'd see what he could do.

The next day, Maud returns to the mortuary to have one last moment
With Albert before his funeral the following day. When the attendant
pulls back the curtain, Dorothy manages to smile through her tears as
Albert is now wearing a smart blue suit.

She asks the attendant, "How did you manage to get hold of that
beautiful blue suit?"

"Well, yesterday afternoon after you left, a man who was about your
husband's size was brought in, and he was wearing a blue suit. His wife
explained that she was very upset, as he had always wanted to be buried
in a black suit," the attendant replied.

Ah, the dear old Whitehall, home of Brian Rix starring in "Whoops, there go my trousers"!

Then it was bought by the pornographer Paul Raymond, I think, to host his artistic oeuvre. In those days, TV stations were obliged to announce, at the end of each drama presentation, the name of any West End show that any of the actors were currently appearing in. Have you ever heard a po-faced BBC continuity bod announce that "Iva Normasnokkers is currently appearing in 'Let's get Laid' at the Whitehall Theatre"? Quality............

The FT reviewed a Paul Raymond show there starring Fiona Richmond (an early pin-up/porno actress for our younger readers). I still roughly remember two lines from the review.

"Miss Richmond's acting was so wooden that it should have been treated for death watch beetle."

"The male stars only had small parts."
