There was something of an elegiac feel to this year’s final, as Len Goodman, Strictly institution, finally hung up his “Seh-ven!” paddle, gave us one last scrambled metaphor and waltzed off to the great golf course in the sky. We can only hope ballroom doesn’t follow suit, but continues to hold its own among the themes, props and ever-encroaching contemporary – it was lovely to see a pure ballroom pro number, in tribute to Len, sadly now a rarity on the show.
