The plot (patter) concept is A+. Is that unique to this version of the trick? It really is impressive.

Re: Houdini and Doyle TV show in Canada

The one surprise for me was that Stephen Mangan (Doyle) really took over as "the" actor, though I kept thinking "Was Elliott Gould born a lot earlier than 1938?" And the unfortunate surprise was that Michael Weston (Houdini) wasn't nearly as scene-stealing here as in "House&...

Was there maybe a second cover for Tihany? This would have been in the '80s I think. Thanks.

Re: RIP: JC Doty

What I remember of Mr. Doty was his sense of humor and the nameplate/badge he wore at the '84 Atlanta Harvest of Magic. He'd lost a lot of weight...a lot...and thus wore a badge that said, "Yes, I'm Doty". Wow, the irony of Tom and then Doty passing on within a few weeks of each other... :-(
