Sir Mark will always be my first love but I certainly wouldn't decline a fling with Pat Keegan.

Or Peter Fraiman or Colin Ayres or Tony Kay or Clark Devlin.

Or Damian or Dr Quincy or Tavvy or Percy or.....

And I'd be more than happy to watch Mickey Ryan/Fredrick Line/Chaz. :D

Wow, I'm a complete floozy.

Mark Brydon opened my eyes to Jason Isaacs, and he will probably always be one of my favourite charachters. But after having seen a lot of them, I'm not able to choose just one. If I name one, I'll have to name another... and eventually, I will name everyone of them. :???:

Wouldn't it be neat for another mini-series with Sir Mark being a special envoy for the PM to various parts of the world to solve problems?

Oh well! It's nice to dream.

I like sir Mark Brydon but...a movie about the life and times of Tavington would be more interesting :cool:
LOL

He is very convincing as a priest I think. The Last Don II, wasn't my cup of tea (way too melodramatic for me). :oops: It's worth watching for Jason as a priest, :oops: but you should definately go for The State Within first, Marilaine. It's is soooooo much better.

And grannybear, I would love to see a second series of The State Within, and I'd like them to double up the number of episodes too! We can only dream, but they can't take the dream away from us! :D

Yes, they need to resolve the cliffhanger we were left with. The whole series built up to that, and then...??? Bummer! :bat

I think I'm going to see the Last Don II this week, I finally got the dvd! (JI doesn't have much screen time in it, does he?)

(I like our dear Jason as a priest in the End of the Affair..ah, Father Smith...forgive me, I'm a sinner)

The Last Don II is about 3 hours long and he is in it for about 25 minutes, Not too bad, but I wish he had more, because it was the only plotline I cared about. To be honest: Father Luca was the only charachter I cared to watch.
The State Within is almost 6 hours and he has about 2 hours and 35 minutes screentime (I am trying to stay on topic :D )
