effort and error


I was watching "Bikini Wax" last night, and Ducky mentioned Edinburgh University yet again. It got me wondering whether the folks in Edinburgh know about their famous alumnus. Then again, considering that such folks as Alexander Graham Bell (inventor of the telephone) and, er, J. K. Rowling studied there, Ducky pales in comparison.

Does anyone know if David ever went to university, and if so, where? The chancellor of my old university, Stirling, is Diana Rigg (Emma Peel from The Avengers) so there is definitely a precedent in Scotland for electing secret agents as chancellors... (however, the chancellor of Edinburgh University is Prince Phillip, who I guess is a bit more famous than David).
