An evening with Mary Killen and Giles Wood
2nd November 2017
THE DIARY OF TWO NOBODIES
An evening with Mary Killen and Giles Wood in conversation with Martin Thomas
On Channel 4’s hit show Gogglebox, Giles and Mary watch TV in their Wiltshire cottage, sitting in their distinctive sitting room with William Morris willow-pattern matching fabric and wallpaper, delivering deadpan commentary. In The Diary of Two Nobodies they explore, with characteristically dry humour, the bene ts of spending your life with someone who annoys you.
Mary describes their marriage as thirty years of provocation. Areas of contention include class – Mary’s drawn upwards, Giles down – and food: Giles favours scraps, whereas Mary has stated on national television that she would like her ashes to be scattered in her beloved Waitrose. Giles sees himself as a cross between Mr Bean and Basil Fawlty, while Mary identi es with the Queen.
When neither on or watching television, Mary writes for Tatler, The Spectator and The Lady, while Giles is an artist and writer with a column in The Oldie.
