London Screening #1: The Incredible Mr Goodwin

The first of our London Screening events took place this week, and what a way to kick start the series with The Incredible Mr Goodwin.

The face says it all as the bed of nails arrives on stage

The 45 minute show is real edge-of-your-seat stuff, and we’re not sure we’ll be able to look at a needle and thread in the same way for a while!

Andrew Collins was our jovial chair for the post-screening Q&A with Jonathan Goodwin and Matt Crook, the Executive Producer of the show. Initially addressing the question, are we all as brave as The Incredible Mr Goodwin, the clear and definitive answer is no! We were then all ears as the pair shared tales of how they conceived some of the amazing stunts and how some of the Health & Safety forms, as you can imagine, were a slight headache to complete… 

Lying on a single nail!

Nobody could help but be impressed by the sheer amount of craft and time Jonathan extends to his stunts - the hours and hours and hours of practise and planning he does was inspiring. For a minute we thought if we practised hard enough we could pull off similarly crazy stunts until we watched him lie on a single (sharp!) nail for ten seconds without flinching and we had a rethink! Mr Goodwin truly is Incredible.

We’d like to thank everyone at UKTV and ObjectiveProductions who helped make the evening possible.
