Little does he know that it's only a front for an escape plan. In Cyrano de Hancock, Sid is besotted with Miss Pugh, and asks for Hancock's help in expressing his love, while The diary finds Hancock looking back at 1956, and falling into a reverie where he imagines himself as a surgeon, a lion tamer and a test pilot. Finally, in The impersonator, Hancock hears an actor in a cornflake commercial imitating his voice, and promptly takes the impersonator to court. Once again, the master of misery is supported by a star cast including Sid James, Bill Kerr, Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques, and four sparkling scripts by the masters of mirth, Galton and Simpson
