"Cockleshell Bay is a town near the sea, with sunshine and seagulls that screech,
There are shops that sell ices and buckets and spades, so that children can play on the beach..."

Cockleshell bay feels like the sort of puppet seaside town where a puppet David Tennant and a puppet Olivia Colman are about to turn up and investigate an horrific murder. A puppet murder. I'm sure nobody reads these show notes. If you read this, tweet @spreadthewhimsy with #ireadtheshownotes. It will make
Martyn's day.

"A Suitcase full of clothes, everybody knows, when you're dressed in your Sunday best... anything goes!"

"Oh come with me to the rolling sea where the weather's calm and still..."

Mark and Martyn watch the adventures of three men in a lighthouse, where there's nothing weird going on at all honest, and all the shipping forecast references are lost on the children it was meant for.

This show is called "Tugs." Make up your own jokes. They'll be a lot better than ours.
