    Oh Sophie, I’ve just bought a signed copy from the Classic TV Press, I’m so excited. I was 11 when the film came out and I was already a huge S&A fan. I loved the film and you, well Titty really, she became my first ever crush. Thank you for the excellent portrayal of Titty. Thanks also on behalf of my own daughters who also fell in love with the film, probably due to my regular screenings! Kindest regards Mike
