Believe this one was taped months ago. That's the reason RA says he isn't sure if Lucas survives for Spooks10. By now, of course that probably is no longer the case. Remember the still shot that was released immediately after the interview...
SATURDAY: UK time 6:15pm, BBC Radio4 interview at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00ts5dw
Paragraph at that website says RA will discuss Lucas's tattoos. This time it's a male interviewer - Clive James - so, Mr A. won't have another opportunity to use what he today referred to as his tattoo chat-up line - when asked if they're real by the lovely hostess, Richard said "come over and find out." WooHoo!
[SAT: also see at link below LN included in SKY's 20 fav spooks list]
Video Part II (see below): Watch master chef RA:) slicing veggies w/a pro's chopping flair..licking his fingers, mmm;) eating what must've been a super hot chili...resulting in his mouth getting even hotter than the rest of him. Very tasty dish indeed....the recipe as well. haha;) Here's the link...
Interview afterthought: Must listen to part 1 again to confirm whether or not Richard replied "why don't you come over and find out?" when the woman replacing Lorraine asked him if Lucas's tattoos are real. Did he actually say it or was that my vivid imagination putting those words in his mouth? Could easily have been the latter.
2nd item: Where's the stubble?...channeling cookie monster -- ME WANT STUBBLE! hehe....seriously, it would be cruel of the man to permanently take it away from us, wouldn't it? Didn't John Porter have stubblelicious?....going to find some evidence...
Part II - Chef RA...
Followed a tweet link that looked as though it might be a new SKY interview - turned out it's a recycle from last wk. However, found the following..
Top Twenty Spies
As Spooks hits screens for a ninth series, we thought it was about time to take a look at the best espionage agents on the box.
Take a look at our favourite TV spies of all time.
p.s. It’s a photo list of SKY’s estimation of the 20 best spooks/spies, with luscious Lucas North as pic #1.(replaced it here w/one more tantalizing) Two other recent Bourne-type favs of mine are included on the list as well.
