Author's Notes:
I've lost count - is this my 3rd drabble for week 2 of Challenge 288 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100?

Anyway, for this one I used the episode title 'The Man Who Nearly Knew Pavarotti' as my prompt.

Summary: Jack and Ianto tell each other about famous people they’ve ‘met’.

Browsing his record collection one evening for something to play, Jack turned to Ianto.

“Did I ever tell you I knew Pavarotti?”

“Really? What was he like?”

“Well, I didn’t really know him as such, but I met him. Once. In passing. Okay, I nearly bumped into him outside a restaurant in London.”

“Ah.” Ianto smiled. “So you knew Pavarotti the way I know Charlotte Church.”

Jack looked intrigued.

“Saw her once from behind when she was opening a summer fair. Could’ve reached out and touched her but a crowd was in the way.”

Jack laughed.

“Yeah. Exactly like that.”

The End
