Re the below video: Hopefully he actually has a far better batting average than his on-screen matches to date---Is that what's driven him into a womanless hobbit hole;)
Food for thought: lines from ep 8..
From Lucas: "they didn't need to kill him"..."I really hope that he does"..."you always underestimated yourself Ruth"..."be brave--you've done enough, like me, say yes"..."five miles outside Dakar--that's where Lucas North is"..."we love each other"..."this isn't like you Harry--committing treason for just one life"...[Visual inspired by scene in Spooks7: split second flash of Lucas AND Harry lying down side by side on a safehouse floor][Another visual - St Edward's Church...Was it sacrilegious for Harry to hide the top secret Albany file in that location?]
Dimitri question: Why didn't writers have him expeditiously shoot the hooded 'running-away' Lucas?..why did they take precious time to instead send in a team to neutralize the threat?
Do you ever peek in on ubiquitous Christmas markets all over the world? Certain ones set the traditional scene far better than others. Can's you almost smell the sausages & chestnuts roasting by the open fire...hehe...that is, if there are still chestnuts anywhere in the world. Will be posting links now and then to various holiday season festivities around the globe..
Seems like an appropriate spot to deposit today's headline...
>Bush: Waterboarding prevented attacks on Heathrow Airport and London... <
Has anyone else looked at the LastBroadcast website Hot Spot: Guys feature?[link below] There are 188 pics but by the time I reached #36...went mehhh..not worth the time. What was interesting to find is that 3 current spooks are mentioned on the mostly 'still wet behind the ears' list, including the hottest - though far more mature - Richard Armitage. Doesn't that prove yet again that we're women of discriminating taste? *patting all on the back*:) Could not find in the 36 pix perused one other actor who would ever inspire me to pay such close attention to his career. Only other male in this world who gets that sort of attention is my adorable soulmate and long-time hubby.
Here are the results of fav spook character run-off at that site:

[It must be gratifying for RA to rank higher on the below list than Ros or Malcolm. Great to see Jo included...always had hopes Lucas & Jo might've teamed up as a Spooks couple. Wager that one would've turned out with less tragic ramifications than all the others---assuming of course that writers did not insist on the same storyline for Jo;]

Ep8 cont'd: Appears to be more emotional passion/chemistry between Lucas/John & Ruth than w/Maya...
All that angst and treachery for the woman he loved who sadly didn't seem to offer nearly as much love in return..
