Talk:Pennies from Heaven (TV series)

Does the bit about the use of the term "pennies from heaven" by charities really belong in this article? I would suggest moving it elsewhere. 16:02, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

You're right, so I moved that section to the Pennies From Heaven (disambiguation) page. — Loadmaster 19:40, 8 September 2006 (UTC)


Could someone add at least a very short synopsis of what the series is about? The article doesn't say anything much about it. Ben Finn 22:47, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Project Tags[edit]

Why is the musicals project tag here? Is this even a musical? -- Ssilvers 14:19, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Reference inadequate.[edit]

The "The Independent" reference, the only one in the notes section, does not have a link to the article in question. Could someone possibly fix this? (talk) 22:09, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

John Christie/ Timothy Evans[edit]

Is there any written evidence from Potter that links many of themes from Pennies From Heaven with that of the hanging of Timothy Evans in 1950? Evans was wrongly hanged for murdering his daughter and wife. Three years later John Christie was caught and he admitted to the murder of Evans' wife. When he went to the gallows, Christie, like Arthur in Pennies From Heaven, complains of an itchy nose, but is hanged regardless. Similarly Evans had a fractious relationship with his wife and Christie was a user of prostitutes. Both lived meagre lives in rented accomodation. I am not saying Potter based the whole of Pennies From Heaven on the case, but that he used elements of it to help form his plot and characters. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goldgreen (talkcontribs) 19:13, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Moonlight on the Highway[edit]

Potter uses miming to song briefly in this 1969 play (not Midnight... as I say in my edit summary) so its use in Pennies from Heaven is not an entirely new feature in his work. Adding "extended" to the opening summary seems to add the necessary clarity without an unduly lengthy explanation. Philip Cross (talk) 20:29, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
