I’m still grinning from ear-to-ear because Ciaran Hinds has been announced fo the UV cast. When I heard about that yesterday, I immediately put a Persuasion rewatch on my list – and then followed through. For those of you who would like to see it: It’s actually on YT at the moment, and in HD quality. HERE.
But now on to the other TDH guy. (BTW, I totally think that *he* also would’ve made a convincing, stunning Captain Wentworth. He has that fabulous mixture of an austerely handsome face – that can melt into vulnerable love…)
- I love moodboards. Here is one of Raymond de Merville by fizzyxcustard
- Here’s a thought by grimweaver that I have had, too. Reminds me of that Canadian interview in 2012
- Haven’t read this, but here is a Guy fan fic by fizzyxcustard
- Ok, Craig Parker was a bit of a shit (or am I mixing him up?) but RA in profile? Always good. Gif set by riepu10
- Not sure how come that Lucas is floating above London, but I somehow like this edit by serik27
- LOL – quipped by permanentlymystified. I feel wiith you!
- Reminder of the boyish smile by deepestfirefun
- Oh, um, did we have this before? Either way, it’s too good to ignore. Blacksmith Thorin, hot. Posted by thewarriorandtheking
- And the antidote – wet Thorin. Also by thewarriorandtheking
- I totally love the aesthetics of this fan art, the kind of pared-down graphics. Goregous artwork by fuchsmitbrezel
- Controversial opinion posted by semicolonsimon. What do you think?
- LOL – “incorrect quotes” goes Bagginshield. By blakesblee
- And thewarriorandtheking has also found some fan art hair porn
- There is something called Inktober going on at the mo, where fan artists draw their stuff in ink. Here is a cute one by sodasacd
- oooh, and look at this pattern, also by sodasacd. Cute!!! I can see that as a fabric pattern!
- Guy really always has the best arguments… A What a Guy Wants instalment by nfcomics
Hope you have enjoyed the list.
Happy weekend, all!

There’s a few I’ve missed this week! Thank you another great roundup Guylty. 🙂
Glad you liked it, Mezz xx
I think Craig Parker was okay but I think the Doctor was on the rebound and it was never going to work.
Bit worried how big a part RA will have in UV because I looked in the huge reference book in our local library for the play and their synopsis doesn’t even mention the Doctor it’s all angst between the brother in laws .
I read the play couple of weeks ago and no worries. Astrov’s part isn’t small 😊

It will also depend on McPherson’s version and since they announced Vanya and Astrov casting first and called them headliners, I assume it will center those characters.
Ha, exactly 🙂
Well, in the original play he is definitely one of the main players. And just judging by the fact that he gets top billing with Toby Jones, I expect RA to have a big-ish role in this adaptation. Who knows, maybe McPherson is going to rewrite the whole thing to make it more about Vanya and Astrov?
Meinetwegen könnte er es so umschreiben, dass nur noch Astrov vorkommt. Gäbe dann kleine Schwierigkeiten mit dem Names des Stücks, aber irgendwas ist ja immer…
*kicher* – Ich bin sehr dafür. Sowas wie “Der Landarzt”
Der Landarzt 😱 – ich kann mich grad nicht erinnern, ob ich diese Sternstunde deutscher Fernsehunterhaltung jemals gesehen habe.
Hier wäre es dann “Der Landarzt 2.0” – der Arzt, dessen Anblick zu Herzrasen, Schweißausbrüchen und spontaner Ohnmacht führen kann. Dr. Astrov dürfte bei mir jederzeit auf einen Hausbesuch vorbeikommen…

Yes, yes, yes, I could ship Vanya and Astrov….
Thanks for the great round up Guylty and for the Persuasion link, time for a re-watch
Ooh, thanks for the link, Guylty. It was on my list, next to Lost in Austen but it somehow slipped my mind. Great roundup as always, with something for everyone. #15 Guy just has the best everything imho. 😂 Sometimes I felt quite sorry (not sorry) for Robin.
Watching tonight’s Countryfile programme I thought about Richard’s tweet about planting trees, we all need to plant 48 each year to offset our carbon footprint
I wonder if he went to the plantation near his Dad’s home he did talk about going there in pre Twitter days.
🙂 Je cours acheter de nouvelles bottes de jardinage.
Great idea to rewatch Persuasion. If there would be a new remake RA would be a very good Captain Wentworth, too.
But this evening I rewatch the Hobbit on TV sur France 2. Thorin, hmmmm, not very romantic, but….. memories
Thank you for the round up
Every time I read about RA planting trees I picture him with a little green plant on his head, which was a Japanese craze recently.
Nous avons beaucoup à apprendre des personnes asiatiques sur leur rapports personnels avec les plantes, la nature en général.
“Le Hobbit sur France 2”. Je n’ai pas pu tenir devant la TV longtemps. L’image n’était pas top. La voix de Xavier Fagnon pas assez grave. Connaissant l’intrigue par coeur, j’anticipais l’action suivante. Le pire, le scénario du film paraissait avoir moins de sens, les scènes me semblaient tronquées… Seule, la vue de Radagast m’a apaisée. Dorénavant, la longue version originale sur DVD blu-ray sera la seule que je prendrais le temps de suivre intégralement.
J’adore regarder les peintures de “fan art” dans les “round up”. Merci Guylty, pour ces revues!
I’m not sure I’ve seen Persuasion. Unfortunately the YouTube link has been disabled for copyright here. Maybe I can find it somewhere else. Thanks for the Roundup!
Ah, such a pity that the link doesn’t work. THe 1996 version is such a sensitively adapted film.
