A very droll 'presence'.

Wife was watching the 'Ovation' channel on cable the other day, and called me down saying; "you'll want to see this". It was Brian Sewell's 'Grand Tour'.

She was right. This guy had the most arid, drollest sense of humour I think I've ever heard. I don't know whether it's just personality, intellect, or whatever, but the gent had what can only be described as a presence. That and the poshest, almost musical upper class British accent I've ever heard (some research turns up comments like; "Brian Sewell, the only man I have ever met who makes the Queen sound common"). More on what I glimpsed to be 'one of nature's individuals here. The world does have some interesting characters in it - thankfully.
