BUT IS IT ART?
Art dealer, star of the internationally popular BBC ‘Fake or Fortune?’ series and neck scarf aficionado, Philip Mould is a hugely likeable cocktail of tv’s Lovejoy (as played by Ian McShane) and, believe it or not, The A-Team’s ‘Face’ (as played by Dirk Benedict, older but uncannily identical).
Precisely as you hoped he’d be - urbane, wry and devilishly rakish - he was value for money in every sense, delivering whodunnit after whodunit about his extraordinary finds, discoveries and losses.
With a rapt audience and genuinely savvy interviewer, Steven Parissien (director of The Compton Verney Art Gallery) this was a star vehicle with flair to spare.
