Look who’s calling!

We were in a book shop (Foyle’s to be precise) when I saw this book saying ‘Now a major BBC drama’ in its cover and I was like ‘What the what???’ I googled it and lo behold, there is a BBC series coming up for the Cormoran Strike series. If you notice the comments in that trailer, one of them reads “That feeling when character’s appearance doesn’t correlate with an appearance that you have in your mind after reading the book.” that is exactly what I felt when I saw it. I thought Strike was a bit older. It has been a while since I read those books, so I have forgotten about the storylines but I remember what the character was like and it definitely doesn’t match this actor from what I can see from the trailer. Hopefully, it will be OK when we actually see it. I hope so. Looking forward to this. Mr George Gently is making an appearance in this series by the looks of this trailer. When are they going to show the 2nd episode of the latest series btw?

Thank you, Mr. Gently

When I saw this during St Patrick’s Parade I had no clue as to what it was referring to. Not until I saw the latest episode of Inspector George Gently (Series 5 Episode 1, Gently Northern Soul), where the sentiments of ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish‘ was portrayed. I kind of like George Gently. It is not like Lewis or Jonathan Creek. It has a subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) social undertone to it. John Bacchus isn’t Hathaway for sure 🙂 And Martin Shaw is a lovely actor to portray that strong character.
