A question for the more experienced Avon worshippers* out there (* I really should have said “fans”, but I got carried away…): Suppose I wanted to explore Paul Darrow’s work a bit further, what would you recommend?

akahades said: I’d recommend the Legend of Robin Hood.

That makes two then. I’m almost convinced. The box set’s not even that expensive… Just for the hell of it though, persuade me some more: Does he do a proper nasty Sheriff of Nottingham? I don’t expect the full-blown nutcase like Alan Rickman, but… I just hope he doesn’t just sort of fade into the background? (And yes, I know we’re talking about Paul here, and yes, that still is a serious question.)

This should have just been put in the movie, as mr and mrs weasley probably dance just like this.

carefullylaidoutinfamy answered: Murder…

He’s throughout a majority of Murder Must Advertise , if memory serves (definitely more that the 9-10 minutes). The whole Ian Charmichael!Wimsey series is great, if you end up liking that one, once you’ve seen it! I’d offer to help you out with that story, but like a lot of other cool stuff, it got lost in a hard drive failure and I don’t have the files anymore, bah.

As for Robin Hood, I was never that into the story/legend/what have you? But I enjoyed that series - and a number of the actors might have had something to do with that. I can’t remember what clips are still on youtube, but it’s worth a watch, even if you don’t end up liking it - a lot of his pre-B7 stuff is kind of hard to find (then again, I am American and we don’t even have Blake’s 7 on dvd here), and I believe that Robin Hood falls into that era.

Edit: Also, if you do listen to Kaldor City and need your brain fixed afterward, feel free to ask me any questions. :D

wait what why would I need my brain fixed? I’m a bit scared now (but in a good way).
