Great stag, nice calves

By now you have probably heard the rumour that the human leg on Terry Urbahn’s stag is female. No one was more surprised than Urbahn’s (you'll see we got the spelling right this time) mate –and Govett-Brewster technical magician – Bryan James. It is after all a casting of the James’ leg that has been cobbled on to the White Hart stag. We checked out the Film Archive where the stag is revolving in front of Urbahn’s video of the White Hart reunion. Sure enough, it’s as manly a leg as you would find in a bunch of Saturdays.
