David Robbins: Better than Mitchum -- me, our lodger and the late TP McKenna
I never met the great character actor TP McKenna. I never saw him on stage. Nor can I say I ever noticed him in the many small TV and movie parts in which he specialised.
Yet we were linked by one of those odd, random, tangential associations that connect so many people on our small island.
If everyone on the planet is no more than six degrees of separation away from the actor Kevin Bacon, then I am a mere two away from the bould TP.
