Purdey 1 CropFrom reading about haunted castles and abbeys just recently, it struck me that the stairway is very often the hang-out of choice for ambitious apparitions who want to see some proper hands-on action.

I was particularly interested to read a story about Airth Castle near Falkirk, whose phantom dog lurks in a hallway and has a habit of biting people’s ankles.   Believe me, I would soon sort him out.   A fistful of needle-sharp claws in his nose, and he’d go whimpering off back to his grotto.

But the idea of haunting a stairway got me thinking.   I love stairs myself, and there’s usually a lot of fun to be had on them:   either a fir cone that needs to be followed headlong to the bottom (extra points for doing it in one leap), or a squeaky haggis that is well worth beating up, simply because he’s so annoying.

I’m therefore releasing this short trailer for my new movie entitled ‘Spectre – the Revenge of Blofeld’s Cat’, which sends an important message to all fluffy felines, everywhere.  The moral of this tale is:  don’t put up with any nonsense.  (Also, if you wish to re-enact this at home, be careful not to get your head lodged in the banisters, as it can be both awkward and embarrassing).
