Series 2... filming starts Jan 2016

Yes orph my sulk is still a huge part of me indeed and doesn't intend on going anywhere. Also a slight eyebrow raise today as to why no word on BA yet. I think we might be in for a bite of another s**t sandwich I fear.

As for Tom Hardy. Yes extremely rugged and pleasing on the eye in Mad Max especially when he has his desert gear on. I thought him tasty in Inception too (fantastic Leo DiCaprio film).

Yes ilove every time I see a certain model of Audi-i say to DH 'CJ car, CJ car'. Yes my poor DH has had to learn to live my CJ fascination. Although he sometimes asks 'who's CJ again' and I have to remind him 'don't ask crazy questions'.

Jens fab chapter should be the cameo scene in Series 2! Let's get on it. smile

I really should go to bed. Up v late watching Glasto. Is it too late to admit an enormous girl crush on Mark Radcliffe? 20+ years and still going strong. I have a massive weakness for men from Lancashire.

Hello to thread 21! Not sure about Odyssey - I watched it all apart from when I nodded off here and there. I couldn't really follow the story in detail - not sure it's really necessary though - but got the general gist.

I wouldn't read too much into there being no other cast announcements yet. I reckon TG will be having to rewrite things without having LT in it. He did say the plan was to have CJ in the 'series 2 so I am trusting him on that. They don't start filming for 6 months so no real rush (apart from putting all our minds at rest). They won't be daft either they've gotta know the pull that BA has on the female audience!

Morning smile bit early, but I'm off on a school trip with littlie ... Ooh, the excitement wink.

I agree ice, I don't think they would normally announce any of the cast so far in advance, they don't seem to on other shows, so I wouldn't expect to hear until nearer filming time.

Think we need some pics for a new thread ...

I was rather distracted last night and wanted to add a cover photo but 5yo was sick.

Excellent choice * nickel*

icemistOBE Mon 29-Jun-15 07:18:50

On way to work extra early due to work on tramline <grrr> and it's rather warm already

Richtea19 Mon 29-Jun-15 07:27:02

Lovely pictures this morning. I really don't want to go to work...
Have fun today and I look forward to reading all musings later!

pixieg1rl Mon 29-Jun-15 07:29:26

Ooh, don't you just want to fiddle with his fluffy helmet?

Good morning thread 21!!

Lovely pics and I do have such a soft spot for Operation Bulge.

icemist I had to stifle a sob when you said TG would have to rewrite cos LT's not in it. The thought of what he originally had in mind...

Anyway, cheered up by picking sweetpeas although had to spend ages debugging them of little pollen beetles. ilove do you have any sage advice as to how to avoid them?

Onlygirljen Mon 29-Jun-15 08:50:48

Wow, the pics are so good this morning!

orph I do like the Jo Malone Amber and lavender on a man, I have pomegranate noir for me, but lime basil and mandarin is lovely. Total indulgence but I buy it duty free when i go away for work, love it!

Went and looked up stonemouth on rhus recommendation. Think I'll try and catch it on iplayer, quite fancy him it grin. Scottish accent sounds spot on. Wasn't Christian Cooke the sulky son in where the heart is?

Just re-read Jen's latest chapter and got so wrapped up in it that I almost forgot I am feeding my neighbour's cats! She booked a last minute trip to Greece last week. Not sure it would be my destination of choice currently.

Happy Monday and happy 21st thread.

pixieg1rl Mon 29-Jun-15 09:23:45

W--a--orking from home...

pixieg1rl Mon 29-Jun-15 09:24:53

Onlygirljen Mon 29-Jun-15 09:36:55

CJ finger pic may assist...

pixieg1rl Mon 29-Jun-15 09:43:00

It's Going to be an exhausting morning

SoEverybodyDance Mon 29-Jun-15 10:02:53

Oh my God that poor man...

BA not CJ!

KellyHb Mon 29-Jun-15 11:53:59

Orph that is a very sad thing indeed that TG will probably have to re-write without LT in it. Sulk back with a bang. But then I think how much screen time would they have had together however it would have at least been something.

Did anyone watch EE last night?? There was an unexpected OG moment! The greeting that Molly & CJ did when they entered Sohail's tent and it involved them putting their hand on their chest (I wont embarrass myself to trying to remember how it goes) but one of the EE cast said it in a scene. Aaahh!

KellyHb Mon 29-Jun-15 12:02:44

MK picture perfect and pouting and apparently just been to gym. I come out from the gym this morning, bright red face and can barely walk. confused

Ilovelblue Mon 29-Jun-15 12:28:13

orphan those little beetles are annoying but harmless I think.

Other than just knocking them off your sweetpeas, you could try spraying with diluted Fairy Liquid. As my Dad used to say, if nothing else it will make their eyes water. I'd be tempted just to pick the flowers, leave them outside for a bit to see if the beetles leg it elsewhere and any remaining ones just shake off gently.

pixieg1rl Mon 29-Jun-15 12:40:18

We've got loads of those as well orphan. And greenfly. And blackfly. Is it a bad year for pests or are they just more of them in the country (been a city gardener until now)
