Another string to Trevor Peacock’s versatile bow (Obituary, 9 March) was his ability as a screenwriter, demonstrated just once, sadly, with the admirably bleak He Who Rides a Tiger, an underrated British film noir from 1965. Peacock’s screenplay was loosely based on the exploits of Britain’s most notorious cat burglar, Peter Gulston. While researching his script, Peacock was apparently invited to go on a “job” by Gulston, but wisely declined.

• Zac Goldsmith says “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets” (Report, 10 March). In the 2019 election he lost his Richmond constituency. Miraculously, he reappeared almost at once with a seat in the House of Lords, and got his old job as minister for the environment back. What Zac wants, Zac gets?

• Your potted CV of Piers Morgan looks rather familiar (Piers Morgan: end of the road for the man who never knew when to stop, 10 March). Do we have to brace ourselves for the elevation of prime minister Morgan in a few short years?

• Re the purpose of the bobble on a bobble hat (Letters, 9 March): “Bobble” is a noun and a verb. If the bobble bobbles, the wearer of the bobble is moving, if the bobble isn’t bobbling, the wearer of the bobble is still. The hat is merely to stop the bobble bobbling off the head.

• The purpose of the bobble is to allow those of us not interested in marmalade to start a new conversation on the letters page.
