Hello, Anon! Apologies I didn’t get to your questions the first time around!
There has been very little, if anything, said about the fate of John...
(For a special lady as her Xmas present)
Mycroft had unnerved John at first; that mind...
Quick and dirty point-form theatrical wee cap of the Rourke Coriolanus (the full recap is coming, will be on the londontheatrerecaps.tumblr side blog) - so, just to satiate those of you that curse the endless waiting for press night [*ahem*rachel], point form, scattergun thoughts under the cut…
Huzzah for technical Coriolanus recap-age. And Mark/Menenius feels…
"He has an ease and a grace with the dialogue that lulls you into a sense of being in exquisitely adept hands. You think it’s all relaxed comedy and parables, and then comes the heartbreak."
I’m leaning towards probably not now as well, but whoever that is: kudos on the arse, sir.
Mycroft is an oft misunderstood character. Certainly he’s not misunderstood by all, but there is a larger number of fans than I would have expected that feel some negativity towards the elder Holmes. I dare say he’s seen by some as an uncaring, cold fish. After great thought, I’ve put together an analysis in defense of
the QueenMycroft and in attempt to shed light on some of his words and actions throughout the show thus far.
[NOTE: This post could be considered a tad spoiler-y as it includes some bits that tie in with my own personal Reichenbach theories.]
So if you don’t want to maul each and every one of these guys you are wrong. That is all.
Sneaking in just one more delightful ginger chap:
Mark Gatiss in The Web of Caves sketch
Earlier last week there were a few photos circulating that all the tiles in Baker Street Station were being taken down. In fact, I went there myself and saw the entire place devoid of Holmes’ silhouette. Incredibly depressing.
HOWEVER! Instead of pouting like myself, BSB Taylor got in touch with Transport For London and it turns out that the tiles are just being refurbished and are going to be put back up!
Big sigh of relief.
I was genuinely upset at the gorgeous tiles being taken away - I’m always ridiculously excited to see them when I travel through Baker Street, so huzzah indeed!
You’re safe lovely tiles of prettiness. <3
