When she and Thaw became a couple – they married in 1973 – they each had a daughter, Abigail and Melanie, by their previous partners; later, they had a daughter together, Joanna. I felt Old Rage was a gift from the universe, given its positivity, despite Hancock’s righteous rage about various aspects of life. Sheila remembered she had spent the most happiest days of her childhood in her Auntie Bill and Uncle Roy’s minuscule flat on the Rue d’Amsterdam.

Growing up as the horrors of WWII unravelled, getting a job in Paris at 14, hitchhiking around Europe with a friend at 16, climbing a mountain at 84. Hancock is on the extremely vulnerable list, and is supposed still to be shielding, reducing her risk of contracting coronavirus as much as possible. Having just gone through the Covid Pandemic on my own myself I did find it a bit depressing but her spirit is still going strong. Around her neck is a chain, on which there are five rings: her wedding ring, those of both husbands, and of her parents. She had weathered and even thrived in widowhood, taking on acting roles that would have been demanding for a woman half her age.Such an entertaining memoir, full of wisdom, wit and character covering the years from 2016-2021, when well-known British actor and star of theatre and television, Sheila Hancock (aged in her late 80s), shares her thoughts during the tumultuous years of Brexit and Covid. But every page of Sheila Hancock's new memoir shimmers with laughter, defiance and profound insights into life as an old RAGE pensioner ― Mail on Sunday --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

I think I know the answer to this question, but her relish is so enjoyable, I want to be the perfect audience. She remembers the war, she has direct memory of how people behaved and cause that we, as a human condition, caused one another and how long it took to rebuild bridges.View image in fullscreen Hancock with daughters (l-r) Melanie, Joanna and Abigail at the memorial service for John Thaw at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, 2002. Sheila Hancock, one of Britain's most highly regarded and popular actors, received a Damehood for services to drama and charity in 2021.
