NEW SERIES: Following is a link to background on the new series 'Revenge' which apparently is a hit. Musa found the following Wiki page for the series. It reveals that the story is based on 'The Count of Monte Cristo'. Believe I've read somewhere that it's written by the same people who wrote the successful series 'Lost'. [Update: scratch that last thought--the 'Lost' writers wrote another upcoming new series called 'Once Upon a Time'] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revenge_(TV_series)
Rupert Penry Jones (the actor RA replaced in Spooks7) is mentioned in the latest issue of EW. In fact his photo is included as well, in the feature called 'What to Watch' - Rupert's Whitechapel series is listed in the shows for Oct 26 (directly opposite a Revenge episode) 10-11pm on BBC America.
Blurb reads "This gripping BBC drama is a Sherlock Holmes mystery for the Homicide generation. As the murder rate in London's Whitechapel neighborhood rises, two detectives track a serial killer who seems to be modelling himself after Jack the Ripper. Prepare for gullet slicing, blood spurting, cop-versus-cop conflict, and more blood spurting. We can't get enough." by Melissa Maelz
EW gives 'Whitechapel' an A- rating.
Sweet Tweets about RA:
Kristina: Also today I discovered that I've never seen the Richard Armitage North & South which made my whole week.
are you on some kind of wonderful period drama marathon? n&s is one of my faves too. she is, indeed, a total bleedin' idiot.
North & South was v. good, though suspension of disbelief suffered early on. When Richard Armitage asks you to marry him YOU SAY YES.
Kristina *swoon* http://www.gifsoup.com/webroot/animatedgifs3/1128967_o.gif richard armitage is made for period shows! ..
[Ricrar: I followed the link expecting to find bccmee’s gifs to no avail. The first 4 or 5 rows are of RA..remainder are Richards of the not nearly as interesting type.
Fun quiz - hope no one takes offense.*winks* Hey guys I was very patient*cough* when every CIA operative was painted as an evil nasty jerk in at least 3 Spooks series;) [and they’re usually such sweeties] *snort* The quiz: Which member of the royal family are you?
It’s your turn to snort - the following is my result..*chuckling myself*...only thing she and I have in common is the fact one of my gggrandfathers was born in Middleton, Co Cork, Irl. I'm still trying to discover why that particular name for that town.[it might simply be common usage for the *middle town*] Although the really unbelievable coincidence is that the area, where some of my paternal ancestors migrated from in Nottinghamshire, England, was once owned by one of the last Catholic king's (Charles II?) peers named Lord Middleton.
Middleton, Co Cork is where the original hdqtrs for the Jameson Whiskey distillery is located. The historic vintage building is today a museum - which we've toured. At the time I'd yet to discover that it was the birthplace of my maternal gggf - could've knocked me over with a feather when a long-lost cousin - another one of his descendants - included that fact, found in a family bible, in her family tree.
