Your judgement was ill considered and irresponsible.

It was neither. We gave the award to William Woodstock as your performances lacked originality.
Edward Lionheart:
Lacked originality? My Julius Caesar, cut down by a drunken mob in an abandoned warehouse? My Titus Andronicus: this is your dish, Meredith Merridew? My Othello, one of the greatest performances in the history of the theatre?

Nothing you can do will sway me
from my original judgment.
Your judgment was
ill-considered and irresponsible.
It was neither!
We gave the award to William Woodstock
because your performances
lacked originality.
Lacked originality?!
My Julius Caesar - cut down by a drunken
mob in an abandoned warehouse.
My Titus Andronicus -
This is your dish, Meredith Merridew.
My Othello - one of the greatest
performances in the history of the theatre.
Nothing you can do or say
will alter my decision.
We shall see.
No! Not one drop,
until you tell us where he is.
Be fair, lnspector.
Think what hed do to me if I told you.
Hell do nothing! Well put him away
where hell never harm a soul again.
- Dyou want a drink or dont you?
- Yes, please, lnspector.
- Im just dying for a drop.
- First tell us where Lionheart is.
You will recall, Mr Devlin, that the last
play in my repertoire was King Lear.
And lm sure you will remember
the fate that befell Gloucester.
