Can hardly contain my excitement...!!
Aidan Turner (the gorgeous vampire from Being Human - sorry language failure there - 'gorgeous' doesn't begin to cover it grin ) in series about the Pre-Raphaelites.
All long coats and brooding artiness.
Can hardly breathe - must take deep breath.

OOh - now that does sound good. When and where is it on, do you know?

littlepollyflinders Sun 12-Jul-09 00:10:33

Oh, I loved the pre-raphelites when I was a sulky moody, -boring introspective teenager

The jaunty music is a bit annoying.

JackieNo Tue 21-Jul-09 21:36:00

lololol at 'Drink disagrees with me'
'Me too, but I enjoy the argument.'

He's a bit camp, that Mr Gorgeous. Can't think who he reminds me of.

Oh yes David Walliams.

Sorry.

Dammit I fancied him until I noticed that...

kathyis6incheshigh Tue 21-Jul-09 21:44:00

poor Effie.

HerBeatitude Tue 21-Jul-09 22:00:57

ooh this is good, it's a series I didn't realise that.

Every Tuesday you say?

Hurray!

JackieNo Tue 21-Jul-09 22:07:39

I enjoyed it - will be watching again (partly for the very lovely Aidan Turner). Some very funny lines, too, which I wasn't expecting.

MovingOutOfBlighty Tue 21-Jul-09 22:09:39

Music a bit crapola (stop trying to be too hip - you are BBC2) but quite enjoyable and lots of satisfactory breeches action.

HerBeatitude Tue 21-Jul-09 22:15:31

ROFL at breeches action

JackieNo Tue 28-Jul-09 17:41:39

Looking forward to a bit more breeches action tonightgrin.

I found this to be quite the biggest pile of toss that I've witnessed in some time. None of the male actors seem appealing in any way and Rossetti seems to fancy himself as a bit of a Daniel Day Lewis but falls VERY short. I squirmed through the first 10 minutes and then had to turn it off - which is unheard of me for a "costume drama" - the music is irritating and all the swaggering down the streets like a Victorian Reservoir Dogs was just embarrassing.

The writing appears to be aimed at the hard of thinking - its only saving grace is the beauty of some of the women. I am actually watching Episode 2 now because there is nothing else on and have just heard the line "restless genitals" Ha!

I just HAD to vent - when's the news on?
