aahhh….the McGann hands. Watching Rebound (Sea of Souls)

aahhh….the McGann hands. Watching Rebound (Sea of Souls)

How much did I like The Hanging Gale? I went looking for fanfiction. For some of you, that is all that needs to be said.

Two of the Phelan sons are farmers; one a priest; one a teacher. This covers various bases and points of view; and the Phelan brothers are played by four brothers. the McGanns. Who, to be hopelessly shallow for a moment, are all quite good looking.

Hopelessly shallow?! :-) Moi? Non! (via like-an-officer-and-a-sergeant)

Rebloggin’ myself. Because the simple truth is that even if  the McGann brothers are fabulous, they kind of *fade away* when Michael Kitchen is on stage, and he IS SO MUCH SO in The Hanging Gale. Sorry, brothers, happens to the best of us, no hard feelings, it would happen to Robert De Niro.

We had an actor in my native country, called let’s say Jack Jackson, and there was a saying that don’t go on stage with an animal, a child or Jack Jackson, because they all steal your scenes…..

this is like hipster!smcganns or something

Reasons Patrick Turner is having a bad day:

— His car won’t start

— He’s out of Henleys

— He’s got a stain on the front of his favorite vomit-colored jumper

— He thought a certain nun might have smiled at him that morning, but turns out she was smiling at Timothy instead.

— The Internet called him a hipster

— There are still approximately 250 days until the Call the Midwife Christmas Special

I am kind of hoping that he would be having just a tired day, because as smcganns, he is practically a single parent with a wife busily writing Series 4 (AND preparing Gigi on Broadway). And he might be worried that there are not enough hand-holding scenes in Turnadette S4 and he has to stop pontificating about chastity….

*sarcastic laugh*

Raise your hand if you have watched so much British television that is has actually changed your speech patterns.

I’ve not the slightest idea how you’ve come round to that idea.

Exactly. I haven’t the foggiest idea of how you’ve come to that conclusion.

What in the bloody hell are you blabbering on bout you twat?

Behold, people that have never been within 50 feet of anyone even remotely British.

What-ho, Horatio! Jolly good….

He spoke about the British actor Stephen Dillane (95% sure) in both panel sessions as someone he highly regards and with whom he’d like to work

—He has such a good taste, that Cumberbatch (Oz Comic Con comment, by Tumblrers…)

"We’ll find a way, I promise you." — Patrick says this/some version of this to Shelagh so many times….

…and then, Episode 7.

I mean, they do find a way in the end…but still…Episode 7.

still lost in the fog…..partially
