In nominating Henrietta Vincent in Brief Encounter as his all-time worst screen portrayal (Darling, you were dreadful! The best (and worst) big-screen performances of all time, 23 September), Peter Bradshaw seems to have forgotten his entertainingly excoriating review of the Cole Porter biopic De-Lovely, in which he wrote that Kevin Kline “gives the worst performance of his or anyone else’s career” (1 October 2004).

• Re Adrian Chiles on poor public toilets (21 September), the persistence of a retired headteacher means there is now a community toilet scheme in Penzance. Businesses provide free toilet facilities and are reimbursed by the council. I can recommend them all.

• Another “regrettable modern tendency” (Letters, 21 September) is that nobody is ever affected by things any more but always “impacted” by them, which always conjures up the opening sequence of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

• The last King Charles arrived at Westminster for his coronation on the royal barge. Might Charles III consider using Gloriana – built for the Queen’s diamond jubilee – for his? It would be the green option, and heaven knows the cost of petrol by that time next year.
