Separated at birth

Tulkinghorn was cheered to see that incoming senior partner David Morley has Grand Designs for Allen & Overy (A&O) after posing as Channel 4’s architectural guru Kevin McCloud. Tulkinghorn was pleased as it gave him an opportunity to use the Grand Designs pun, which greatly amused him.

Morley’s sunny smile and immaculate dress sense is the perfect combination for a TV building pundit. A&O’s futuristic new offices obviously offered him a way into the architectural world and Tulkinghorn understands that he has many requests for advice from people who have managed to get themselves in a tangle doing up their conservatories using only organic materials.
