Was listening to the Mark Kermode movie review podcast (It's a radio5 broadcast I think?), and he mentioned he was on the Isle of Man this week, Port Erin beach apparently.

 

That's all :)

His father is Frank Kermode, Manxman and one of the foremost English scholars in the world.

Are you sure about that? Mark Kermode's real name is Mark Fairey.

Nobody would willingly change their name to Kermode - it sounds too much like commode. I'd sooner be a fairy than a commode........... ; ))

Frank Kermode (Eng professor) is on record that his name is only pronounced correctly on the Island - apparently no longer - the old manx prononciation was as kermod (at one time often spelled kermott) ie mod not mode and not like commode

They're not related, but as rumours go, that's a pretty good one to start. The best rumours are all lies.
