David Croft Writes for Silverstone

It was half way through a particularly pleasant lunch just a few weeks ago that my mate Danny dropped the bombshell of bombshells that for once, left me just a little bit speechless.

Everyone should have a mate like Danny, full of fun, generous to a fault and with a stack of stories that Roald Dahl would have given his right arm for. He’s a film designer which means that he’s known a fair amount of famous faces over the years and worked on some pretty impressive projects. But on this day, he trumped pretty much everything that had gone before.
