For any non-UK readers (puzzled by my reference in the post below), here's some pics of Bertie Bassett, The Liquorice Allsorts Man who haunted the candy-induced nightmares of many a Brit child...

You may be surprised to find that he even featured (kinda) in a vintage episode of Dr. Who (so that's Doppelganger's next Who-related essay sorted out then! - like the cybermen, his earlier (eyeless/noseless) incarnation is more sinister I reckon...and also has a sort of Residents feel to it...)

In Finnish: "Englannin lakritsi" or Englannin laku" - "English Liquorice" lol.
