IT was sad to read of Brian Llewellyn’s loss of his wife and co-star of his Punch and Judy show (Echo, Aug 19). Punch and Judy is one of those long traditional fun loving shows that bring a smile and laugh to one no matter the age, young and old.

Little seems to be known but there was one other Punch and Judy man and that was Malcolm Wood with his wife Jackie, and I never saw them mentioned in the local press.

Unfortunately, a serious road accident on their way home from a show brought it to an end. I saw them perform some years back at Saltburn Folk Festival and I’d never laughed so much.

So, with their show at an end and the possibility of Brian’s being discontinued due to his loss, will Punch and Judy be seen in Darlington ever again?
