Peter Cook & Co was a one-off sketch comedy special produced by LWT and aired in the UK on September 14, 1980. It included a sketch where Cook portrayed Roald Dahl in a Tales of the Unexpected parody called “Tales of the Much As We Expected.”

“Ronald was a pretty ordinary name, and until I dropped my ‘n’ nobody took a blind bit of notice. ‘Roald’ makes me sound mysterious and important. If Ronald Biggs
had called himself ‘Roald’ like me, he could have got away with daylight robbery.

[fire spreads to carpet and begins to expand] I’m often asked what it is that sparks up my ideas, what fires my imagination. In tonight’s story we see how a desire to be famous causes an author to lose more than his head, more than his reputation, more than life itself! [shouts as he escapes]
