Watson's a woman in 'Elementary'.

I'm a few chapters in. It seems to be going much quicker this time - possibly because I now understand what's going on, and am not puzzling over the mystery. I'm still loving the writing - such wonderful, witty descriptions. But I need to finish it by Friday, when it's due back at the library.

...save me the mither...

Oooh, do I detect a Northerner? First time I encountered that word was when I was newly-arrived in Manchester, working on an ep of Coronation St, and had to ask somebody what it meant!

Well while I am not prejudiced I will have to say boo to the new dr! She should be her own dr!
Plus it was a mere jest! Wink

Nowt at all wrong with Northerners, some of my best friends etc, but I was very conscious of being a Soft Sootherner during my 10 years living in Manchester.

I mispronounced 'mither' when I saw it in the Corrie script (I said it with a short 'i' like 'mister' ) - to much amusement from my colleagues. And the first time I said 'nowt' brought cheers from down the corridor!

Being interested in wordy things, I've now looked up the source of 'mither' -

Late 17th century, unknown origin, possibly Welsh moedrodd to worry or bother. Possible alternative from the Welsh meidda (“to beg for whey" ) or perhaps meiddio (“to dare or venture" ).

Bearing in mind the Welsh 'dd' is pronounced 'th', seems logical.
My views are my own.

Can you kick a ball against a wall and burst it with your head. Grin
It's a bit of old Potteries talk. Almost disappeared.

A friend of my dad who spoke strong potteries talk went to live in Yorkshire and picked up the lingo big style. When he came back for a visit nobody could understand him unless he spoke in BLOCK CAPITALS!

I worked on two series of Shameless in Manchester with a Geordie director. In between, I had jobs at Yorkshire TV. Such a joyous melange of Northern accents!

After the excitement of rewatching Deliverance, I hopped straight into bed to start reading Gaudy Night, the next part of my Lord Peter Wimsey re read. TV version of this with Edward Petheridge and Harriet Walters is excellent.
