Keith Allen was brilliant in 'Bodies'. (Not a typo.) It was a medical drama (comedy?) thing. Very good. Max Beesley. Patrick Baladi.

I LOVE the dynamics between him and his secretary - she is so a wonderful change to the books, as is, I feel, the guy playing Terence Smith. In the books I felt he was very two dimensional and just a pretty standard 'thug'. He is quirky here - I adored the way he reacted to getting his nose bitten!! Hilarious. Like a playground bully who loses the fight for the first time.

And that's the type that scares the shite out of me: huge, unthinking brute.
