A whole week to wait for Tom.
Seems to have the makings of an excellent series AND I can hear what they are saying. YAY!!!!!!
He needs to stop mentioning names in public and opening other people's post!
Forgot to set the tivo box! Will try it on catch up. However I have tried Le carre before both in print and on TV and never got very far in.
I am hearing impaired and always use the sub titles - doesn't detract from the performances (but then again maybe I have become accustomed ).
I really enjoyed the book when I read it a few years back - one of my favourite Le Carrés - and the series is living up to its promise. Great casting.
A good opening episode.
The Night Watchman is sooooo beautiful!
It's the romantic light thrown by his brazier.
You've embarrassed me now, rac. I realise that he was in fact called a Night Manager.
The first in a series has to catch your interest to keep you watching the next one. The Night Manager did- although that might just be me gazing upon Tom. I like Olivia Coleman too- a good cast.
At the risk of sounding shallow I think Tom is incredibly handsome but crucially a fantastic actor. I saw him in Coriolanus not really knowing his work and it blew me away. That Olivia Colman woman is just doing the same shouty, annoying, rough 'seen it all before' stuff à la Broadchurch.I read that the original part was for a man. No problems with the gender rewrite but just wish they had hired another actress. I know she has her fans but I can't take to her .
No, no , be fair, @minnie me - she's giving her 'standard Northern' accent, also.
Don't be embarrassed. You think he is as pretty as a picture, a member of the Night Watch.
We were centre stalls Row B. The woman in front got splashed by his "blood". Exciting!
Haven't watched it yet. I hope it's good.
Only just caught up with Happy Valley.
I must be one of the few to find Tom Whatsit really rather repulsive. I have no idea why.
Did anyone else think, however - when Sophie flung herself into bed with Pine after knowing him for about 5 minutes - that this happens irritatingly often in TV drama? I call as additional evidence the way in which Archie Punjabi's character did the same with the Shetland copper after knowing him for about 30 seconds and exchanging around five words with him.
We particularly enjoyed the scenes filmed in Zermatt as we had a lovely holiday there once.
Also. I now can't abide Hugh Laurie. No idea why. I went off him somewhere along the line. Post-Blackadder.
But I love Olivia. I shall have to watch it but I wish they had cast it differently.
And Miss Haversham.
