And Finally

A unique insight into Spike Milligan, the man.


With contributions from his many friends, it sets out to present a 'living' biography with their memories and impressions of the genius who helped them, inspired them, made them laugh or, quite simply, was their pal.

Many aspects of Spike's character are covered by those who know him best, his war experiences are recalled by his comrades, including a rare glimpse into Spike's battle fatigue and its treatment by someone who shared it.

We have chance to see Spike on stage pre Goons, struggling to make the audience comprehend his type of humour, which would later change the comedy world.

His first great love, Maria Antonietta Pontani tells how she still adores 'Terry'. Professor Anthony Clare takes a hugely revealing look into the Milligan psychology.

Michael Parkinson, Barry Humphries, Richard Lester, Michael Winner, Michael Palin and Joanna Lumley are some of the luminaries who share their thoughts, as do some fans and charities Spike has benefitted along the way, providing many funny and touching moments.

What makes this book as unique as its subject is that these contributions are real, there is no anecdotal guess work, the events and views written here are true and accurate.

In setting out to try and establish why Spike Milligan is special and why he remains so popular, the book has also uncovered something of the real Terrence Milligan.
