McGanns Doctor vs Richard E Grants ‘Great Intelligence’
would have been pure GOLD.


It’s the secret booster. Withnail & I is such an obvious choice.

Are there any acting siblings where at least two of them got pretty equally the most famous?

Feel like Charlie Sheen always edged Emilio out to a degree, although I prefer Estevez.

The Olsen twins and their other sister.

Hmm, yeah, twins sort of invalidates it and yeah, now MCU Olsen is the clear huge name. How the tides turn…

Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine.

A little more erm contemporary there’s the Mara’s and Fanning’s.


He’s in Call The Midwife. I didn’t know there was a Mark McGann. What a thread this is.

Had no idea they were siblings!

Nah I mean I’m trying to compare a guy in a hit ITV show that I loathe for being mindless weekend TV fodder, but as I say undeniably popular…Vs a guy who did an amazingly huge song and a resoected album I’ve never heard but I really have no time for his level of perfectionism so I sort of have him in the ‘massive cock end’ box.
