Bringing together some of his favourite work, there were unicorns, dragons... okay, that's a lie. In fact, he asked the whole audience to lie about what we'd seen so we didn't spoil it for others.

There was the bit when, no, forget that. Or where, no, never mind. The magnificent finale when... oh I give up. I can say it was tour-de-force performance from Derren, who bewildered, bewitched and befuddled a near sold-out Regent with his trademark tricks of the mind.

Billed as a best off, it didn’t feel like it. If you’ve followed him religiously you might have an idea of the path he’s leading you down but never what’s waiting at the end.

There was a bizarre moment when he was discussing mediumship when somebody yelled what sounded like “you’re a fraud”. Odd given Derren’s always honest about his dishonesty. Sillenced with a single shush, the interuption was brief.

Derren’s still at the top of the game, I feel his best is yet to come. Read my chat with him here.
