Re: Jason reading The Emperors New Clothes

That story always makes me think of the old Danny Kaye song from the film Hans Christian Andersen, which I saw as a child in a cinema that no longer exists.

Jason is always good at reading stories aloud. :D

Re: Meeting Jason

I have met Jason twice, I am sure I wrote about it somewhere on here. Once was when he did The Dumb Waiter in London, which I went to with fellow fan Carole from Oz, whom many Lost Girls also know. We were lucky, there were only ourselves and one other fan waiting for him after the matinee, so we ha...

Re: LINK for 2014 Calendar

Char's site has calendar photos. She always compiled the photos and arranged for the printing.

Re: The Dead Spit Of Kelly

This sounds intriguing, and yes, a lot of screen time for Jason.

Jim Broadbent is excellent - he has won 2 BAFTAs, 2 Golden Globes and an Oscar. He was also in Harry Potter.

Re: Jason's Accents

I would add to the English accents - the Lucius one is much more than RP, it's "upper class". He modelled it on art critic Brian Sewell.

Re: The Theatre of War

"Going on holiday" sounds as if he is stretching it a bit, as he said he would see her tomorrow! Perhaps Emma was staying away for one night? But not being sure exactly when that was broadcast and what the local Covid rules were in their area, I have no idea if she could or would go away.

Re: ST:D has a new character . . . are you ready cat lovers??

Only joking Marie. :D

But somebody, probably Michael, did call her a "fat cat" in the script, and Book defended her honour too. Actually she doesn't look fat, just very big.

Re: ST:D has a new character . . . are you ready cat lovers??

Has anyone else started watching series 3? I hadn't realised it had started, but there are 3 episodes on Netflix so far. I have seen the enormous cat - I suspect it will play a part of about the same importance as Spot, Data's cat i.e. not a lot. This show is completely different so far from previou...

Re: The Theatre of War

If I want to know what the time is elsewhere I use this site:

https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

Just scroll down till you find a city in your time zone and the other one.

I can then work out the time difference for arranging a Skype call to Oz at a mutually convenient time.

Re: ST. Ives!

Thanks, Hilary. :D

I found out I could upload an avatar directly to my profile and didn't need my no-longer-working Photobucket account. It's great to have the Supreme Commander back again.

(P.S. She looks absolutely nothing like me!)

Re: ST. Ives!

It's ages since I watched this, I remember it as good fun. The book has the same name: St. Ives: Being the Adventures of a French Prisoner in England by Robert Louis Stevenson It was unfinished by RLS and completed by Arthur Quiller-Couch. If you get it to read, you need to check whether you get the...

Re: Jason on a UK set of Star Trek Stamps.

Thanks for this Anniemouse. Helen, you can see there is a tiny silhouette of the Queen's head on the stamps as well. In the 1960s when Tony Benn was Postmaster General he tried to remove the Queen's head altogether, but the compromise of the small silhouette was agreed on for all special commemorati...

Re: Peter Pan...AAIIEE!

Annie, although this might not have been a hit as a movie, in the UK it is repeated endlessly on TV, generally in the afternoon during the Easter & Christmas periods when children are off school. :cool:

Re: Good DVD

I just saw Anniemouse's comments. I saw Good in Glasgow with another Jason fan shortly after the film was released, during the Glasgow Film Festival. He was supposed to be there for the Q&A afterwards, but I think he got the offer of a free holiday or something, so naturally he chose a sunny beach w...

Re: Mrs Harris Goes to Paris

It's not the first time that eastern Europe has been a stand-in for parts of western Europe that have changed a lot since the time when a film was set. I believe filming is cheaper there too.
