Cliff Goodwin's new biography adds flesh to the much pored-over bones to bulk out a life that seemed to. .Like any biography on such a fascinating man as Tony Hancock, "When The Wind Changed" will not provide any answers to the questions we all have and would dearly love answered.

Cliff Goodwin's new biography adds flesh to the much pored-over bones to bulk out a life that seemed to define "doomed". In post-war Britain, Hancock tapped into a reserve of frustration and forlornness, and rather than act he learned to react. However, as is the way with such talent, success only begot dissatisfaction. Tony took those with him. At best we can trace the dots and reach our own conclusions.

Loathing catchphrases and 'musical numbers', abusive to pantomime audiences and ever 'costumed' in well-worn clothes, Hancock was a new kind of comedian for the postwar years

I found this book compelling only because as a child I remember my parents watching 'Hancock's Half Hour' on TV. On their black and white box, he was the best thing since EVEN BEFORE sliced bread. Hancock's biography is many things: sad because it documents the gradual, inevitable self destruction of a comic genius; interesting because it gets up close and personal with both his professional and private life (he was not a nice man); and a tad boring and too long because the author has decided to often diverse with mini biographies of every other comedian, script writer, producer, director, interviewer, agent and wife who crossed paths with Hancock. Plus, Hancock's written lines without his performance are just not funny. But Hancock fans, those who are still alive, will probably remember all the minor celebrities that I haven't heard of and love the book.

You probably need to be British to appreciate this book. You certainly need to be over forty to remember Tony Hancock. For years, Hancock drew huge television audiences (black and white pictures in those days) with his weekly 'Hancock's Half Hour. There, he became the nation's idol for his portrayal of 'your average man'. From the philosophical isolation of 'The Bedsitter' through the mayhem and confusion of 'The Radio Ham', and the misguided and self-centred 'Blood Donor', Hancock was finally fretting over his succession: "What have you achieved? What have you achieved? You lost your chance, me old son. You contributed absolutely nothing to this life. A waste of time you being here at all. No plaque for you in Westminster Abbey. The best you can expect is a few daffodils in a jam-jar, a rough-hewn stone bearing the legend 'he came and he went', and nothing in between - nothing!" And, unfortunately, his black humour was echoed in his real life. The more successful he became, the deeper he dove into the bottle until his eventual suicide in Australia.
Hancock was a British institution - a way of life even. A well-loved soul whose private life was little known by the public until his death. This book reveals that life from his grandparents through to his death in April 1968. For those of you who remember and loved Tony Hancock, this book is a must.
