LISTINGS B@CKROWBLOGS Sendyourreviewsto blogs@thelondonlite.co.uk Sholto makes a great Spike ADOLF HITLER: MY PART IN HIS DOWNFALL, HAMPSTEAD THEATRE NW1 I CANT believe that his role as young soldier Spike Milligan in this dramatisation of the comic writers memoirs is Sholto Morgans first professional outing. Not only is Morgan a riveting actor, he even looks a little like Milligan did during the Second World War. And his trumpet-playing is beyond reproach. Indeed, I was pleasantly surprised by how expertly musical this touching, witty and wholly likeable production was. Great fun.
