Never really watch much, but was very surprised to see Tilda Swinton playing a swedish arty-type in the hospital last night!
Admittedly she didn't actually say anything- but was so surprised I thought I had to share it with MNers!
(Nice to see her in it- not like she needs the dosh or anything!)

Ooh I've been enjoying Getting On and looking forward to catching up on last episode on iplayer... Intrigued to see this now.

Saw TS in rl once. Unbelievably tall and skinny and striking.

It was funny, wasn't it. I spent the whole episode thinking how much she looked like Tilda Swinton.

Such a lovely episode. All the huge hype for Thick of It seems very very blokey and macho when you contrast it with the quiet gentle brilliance of Getting On.

I started a thread about this this morning!!

I was gobsmacked but grinning like an eejit! Love the woman!

And Getting On is the best thing on the telly.

Haven't seen this series yet(hoping to get dvd) but the knowledge that I will have to endure Tilda bloody Swinton in it has put me right off. If she was as up her own arse making the prog as she was at University, then I hope Jo Brand put her in her place.

That sounds a little bit unkind. If I had known a famous person I don't think I'd use a web forum to insult them anonymously.

It's just a cameo. She doesn't have a word to say. It was a bit of fun. The odd thing was that she looked like someone who had an uncanny resemblance to Tilda Swinton, but who was clearly not Tilda Swinton.

Sorry oaty if you think I am being unkind but MN is littered with people's opinions of 'famous' people. But thank-you for pointing out it wasn't her anyway - that's a relief.

Oh no she was Tilda Swinton (unluckily for yougrin) -- it was just funny how she seemed to look like someone who was not (quite) Tilda Swinton.

It was definitely her - said so in the credits. I thought she was brilliant
