Is This Different?

This is totally context-less. I haven’t discovered this this weekend but this has been sitting in my download folder for a while. You remember this picture?

Yep, that’s Richard as Daniel Miller in a luscious, hedonistic scene evidently cut from season 1 of BS. Disregard the blue tint of the black light in that Berlin den of iniquity, but dirty sweaty Daniel, possibly a bit loosened up by a few drinks too many? Bring-it-on! And especially once you see this:

Hello chestitage!!! The full extent of the open shirt plus chest hair only becomes evident from this perspective. My-oh-my *fans herself*… Yes, resume whatever you are doing, Daniel, don’t stop now *coughs* *chokes* *dies*.

Right, in all seriousness – this is a slightly different shot than the one we had been served before. Sorry for the bad quality – it is only a screenshot. *Was* this scene ever included anywhere? I don’t remember seeing it. And the “new” picture above I just spotted on Channel 4’s iPlayer where BS was on for a while. I really wonder what Daniel saw there – did there. Fan fiction writers to the fore, here is your prompt. Your opportunity to write some entirely original porn… ooops… fiction I meant, fiction.

Too much for a Sunday? Apologies ladies. I just thought I’d leave it with you – do with it what you want.

  1. I’m certain that scene wasn’t in BS but what a pity! Danel sexy and dishevelled ooh and I love that little hand on his abdomen – plenty to imagine there.. When I started reading your post I thought you were going to say that it was the same crumpled shirt he wore recently (although it isn’t) but he really suits that look. It’s odd that Channel 4 chose that pic (and I’m not sure they should advertise something that isn’t included in the show – mis-selling I call it) but perhapsi it was the striking visuals they liked. Hope you had a lovely break in Germany.

    • It happens so often in movie trailers—they show a really good scene and then it’s not in the final cut. That always irks me. But I like this picture, so all is forgiven. 😉

    • That little hand was what stood out to me, too. Of course, Daniel is not distracted by the temptation of a woman *lol* – he is checking something else out, under the pretense of partying hard. Ah well.
      You know, I am not even surprised that Channel 4 use the picture to advertise – most likely the designer of the Channel 4 site hasn’t seen the show and therefore doesn’t know that that particular scene does not exist. But why is Epix/the producers of the show handing out this shot for publicity purposes? Mind you, you are right – the striking visuals are definitely useable.

      • Dont know but then Epix also that image of Daniel with his hand on the mouth/throat? of the woman journalist for promo, and that was cut from the scene – although I understand why


        • True. Maybe that was just a different location for the same scene where Daniel meets Ingrid on the terrace of the Monkey Bar? Maybe they filmed two versions and then used some as stills?

  2. Ooooooh, now that’s a story that should be written. Just coming to the end of the first section of my Raymond fic. Was thinking John Porter but this………!

  3. Ode to the Blues.

    Haven’t a clue,
    Why he’s bathed in blue.
    And covered in sexy sweat.
    But his shirt is undone,
    There’s some chesty fun,
    So no one cares,
    I bet.

  4. I love this image. It looks to me like he’s wearing a bit of eyeliner, and with the billowing unbuttoned white shirt, I am reminded of the New Romantics from the early 1980s (my teenage era). RA as a sweaty, clubbing Daniel Miller would not look out of place in a Duran Duran music vid IMO😉. Indeed, that may be why they cut the scene from BS with the realisation that the character looked more convincing as an extra in a 1980s music vid than as a CIA agent!!? 😆
    Whatever the reason for cutting this scene, it probably would have been one of the more interesting scenes in BS from a fan perspective.


    • LOL, the return of the guyliner *hooray*!!! That’s not the New Romantics, Zigzag, that’s Sir Guy in his white shirt post-resurrection 😉 But yes, I know what you mean by the New Romantics. I think they were very slightly before my time (although I was a Duran fan later on), but I picture Tony Hedley from Spandau Ballet in his billowing poet shirt… Your explanation why the scene was cut, sounds oddly realistic *hahaha*. “from a fan perspective” *fnarr-fnarr* yes


  5. I’ve wondered when in the nightclub scene the first pic was taken…..seeing your screenshot, after Hector took his phone to bug it? It’s a shame they cut it. It wasn’t in the version I saw on TV, nor the DVD – I would remember that sexy, dishevelled look for sure!
