Poor old Maddy
Aw c'mon Steve, she deserved everything she got - a silly little girl seduced by mere power. Surely not a sympathetic role, however doe-eyed & breathy it's played... ;)
Ian Richardson on the other hand, is sadly missed...
She was a naive child who was used by a master manipulator I can't help but feel slightly sorry for her.... and her breathy doo-eyed acting :)
She may have been naive but that doesn't mean she wasn't calculating. At least part of his attraction was that she thought he would advance her career, so they're both taking an instrumentalist approach to other human beings & thus ought to have their legs slapped 'til they say sorry like they mean it...
He still pushed her off a building, that's mean in anyones book!
True, that was very naughty of him, but by then I was ready to push her off a building myself on account of her being such a gormless drip (& her creepy coital habit of calling him 'Daddy') so couldn't entirely condemn him.
Fair point well made
I was really quite young when I first saw this. I don't think I'd read any Shakespeare. It was still my favourite programme. Such a precocious child.
Was it Matty... arse.
I hope so. I was only watching it last night. Hope my memory/hearing's not quite that shot.
Ha "Mattie Storin" we are both wrong
But I didn't see her name written down. Hmph.
Nor did I until I searched then Double Humpf
Mea culpa, I compunded your error.
What strikes me is that it must have been an excellent bit of work - I rarely retain plot & never character names (spelling trouble notwithstanding). All I usually remember is the mise en scène, the direction & the editing.
It can make chatting about movies quite awkward. ;)
Oh yes, and books.
Usually the characters are 'that girl', 'the other girl'... 'that man with the...'.
Oh and neither of you can tell jokes either due to a biological disadvantage.
or read maps
or open jars
You might very well think that...
But you could end up somewhat damaged.
Refuses to go up to the roof with either of you
Steady, Steve - it was a woman who came up with the A to Z, I know an ex SAS guy who turns the map round, despite being able to do 6-figure OS references, I'm sick of my neighbour bringing his gherkin jars round for me to open (He's 5 foot 5, I'm just over 6 foot, do the maths on relative hand size.) I can do a Dave Allen routine word-perfect after but a single hearing & Helen may very well thump you if you carry on.
(Edit) Who needs you on a roof - what about all those up-in-the air lighting arrangements you have to make?
Fair point, remembers something about girls with big hands....
