I love ATTWN, and all the films

The Finney 'Orient Express' is on another list (!) of mine - Top Ten All-time Movies. I think I'm nearly word-perfect... AND THAT MUSIC!

REALLY liked the Brannagh version up to the point of the murder, then it all fell apart. A real 'game of two halves'. Looking forward to the next one, though.

The Ustinov 'Nile' was quite good, but I vastly preferred the Suchet version. Magnificent bit of telly, that. Conversely, the Suchet 'Orient Express'...well, it's just wrong, wrong, wrong.

Oliver Reed version is best.

Finney did HP brilliantly. I also liked Peter Ustinov's version for different reasons. Branagh is terrible, nothing to do with HP and the film was awful. I wasted money on that at cinema. Too much Daisy Ridley, not enough of anyone else especially Judi Dench - what a waste of talent. Really love both Niles but edge more towards Ustinov on that one. I would have to rewatch Suchet's MOTOP. I didn't like it much on 1st viewing.

I like that one, sparepart, and Ten Little Indians, there is another before that, quite rare, I enjoyed Lansbury in Mirror Crac'ked, mainly for the interplay between Taylor and Novak, chin up dear both of them...

Throwing out some very old computer magazines, I found an issue of DWB sandwiched in between them and an old VOX magazine.

The DWB, no.63, March 1989, includes an article about Paul Darrow's soon-to-be-published first novel, 'Avon: A Terrible Aspect'. The article is "Avon Calling", written by John H Elsen. It includes a great head shot of Paul, with photo credit: Jackie Ophir!

OMG! I have no recollection of that. Any chance you could scan it for me?


I haven't got as far as scanning it, but here's a picture I took at the time as a reminder.

The Man in the Brown Suit Agatha Christie. I SHOULD be reading The Mirror and the Light but my brain is dead at the moment. Well, it's not very lively at the best of times. Also, starting the Pratchett read.

I struggled with that one TBH. Brown's evidently not my colour.

Well, the female narrator IS a bit annoying. I am not flying through it myself.

Caved in. Haven't got the patience for man in the brown suit so sought an alternative easy read to get my reading going again. So now - and I am already half way through - I am reading Firestarter Stephen King.

good book and film,- you mind if I put my feet out first...?

I don't think I ever saw the film. I know Charlie is played by Drew Barrymore and that's about it.

He was doing a few horror flicks about that time. Remember The Changeling? With Jean Marsh briefly playing his wife?

Just finished listening to the Lord of the Rings - the BBC Radio adaptation. Gets me everytime. Will re read The Return of the King soon and get emosh all over again. Part way through The Dead Zone, one of my fave Stephen King books and made into a fantastic film with Christopher Walken. Just about to start Guards Guards for the Pratchett joint read.
