Film 4 announcer. The phrase is derring do.However, as it is from Middle English and meant 'daring to do', I can almost see my way to letting it go.No, actually. I can't It's no wonder so many people have crap grammar, when the tv announcers get it wrong.
I was just getting on my high horse to correct your spelling.So, now I've climbed back down again.
What sanity said. I saw your title ans said out loud "It's derring do, isn't it?"
Definitely Derring Do. Tweet them, or something.
Sanity, Pookamoo.Stealth, I would, but my Twitter account was opened so long ago and has been so little used that I can't for the life of me remember my password. TBH, I don't even want to remember my password.
Daring do bugs me too. Also 'he did it off his own back' instead of 'bat'.My granny used to say 'calm as a milk pond'!
