The time: 7.45pm UK time

Starring Gareth Thomas, Sally Knyvette, Paul Darrow, Jan Chappell, Michael Keating, David 'Gan' Jackson, Peter Tuddenham, Stephen Greif, Kia-ora The Mutoid, some lady without a bra, and an old crone.

In which... there's a duel!

Plus Avon steals the best lines, and there's not a lot happening up that tree, much to Jenna's disgust Grin

And filmed just up the road from me in the New Forest....it had to be near a pub...question is, which one?
Perhaps in the line of duty I should check this out...I may be some time.....
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

And to be baited with the rabble's curse.
Though Birnam wood be come to Dunsinane,
And thou opposed, being of no woman born,
Yet I will try the last. Before my body
I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff,
And damn'd be him that first cries, 'Hold, enough!'

Macbeth Act V scene viii

Thanks, Brad. I was also thinking about Macbeth, but primarily because of the Weird Ladies (Jenna actually calls them that). Do you think there's a connection...?

Could be a connection. Leave it to the Beeb to cut out one witch to save on the budget.

When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

When the hurlyburly's done,
When the battle's lost and won.

There's certainly hurlyburly, thunder, lightning, and a battle lost and won. And perhaps we can think about Kierra (and Jenna as her counterpart) as the third female presence on the planet.

Have you seen Patrick Stewart's MacBeth? It's set in a alternate reality soviet style totalitarian state. MacBeth's Charmed Life is proved false when his pistol misfires, and he has to fight MacDuff with a knife. The famous last line is cut short, "And cursed be him who first cries Hold..."

And after a fight scene, when MacBeth is beaten, he sees one last vision of the witches (dressed as WWI combat nurses, real nightmare fuel), he finishes the verse, lamenting, 'Enough..." and surrenders to his fate and MacDuff's blade.

One of the most riveting adaptations of Shakespeare I have ever seen.

I have - thanks for the recommendation! I agree, it's one of the very best versions of Macbeth I've seen (and I've seen quite a few - it's my second-fave Shakespeare play). It's on YouTube, if anyone else wants to try it - Macbeth
(My other fave screen adaptation is the 1971 movie with Jon Finch and Francesca Annis - and Martin Shaw as Banquo!).

At the moment (because I have seen this one most recently) my favourite movie adaptation of Macbeth is Kurosava's "Throne of Blood", where the entire story is transfered to the feudal Japan. Kurosava also introduced some elements of Noh theatre -- it's very powerful visually.

Throne is quite good. Also Ran as a Japanese Lear.

Providing my garage doesn't flood due to the mini-heatwave we are expecting, I should be able to join you.
I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me.

Just getting ready. Tea, biccies, warm blanket.
We've had a helicopter flying around here this evening. It seems a young lad got knocked of his scooter and the police had to close one of the main roads here. I'm not sure where the chopper landed, probably in one of the local schools playing fields I expect.

No flooding though there's a small trickle of water alongside the edge of the door where it's not fully sealed.

Lucky you! I have a helicopter flying around every day! Sad It's the rescue helicopter based on the roof of the hospital just around the corner.

I'm here for this one, hurrah! I got into work 1/2 an hour early this morning, so left 15mins early and caught an earlier train home. I've even managed to eat supper, so now it's a cup of tea and B7 - ah, bliss.

One flies over our house from time to time. Usually during the very important and very quiet dialog in the movie we are watching.
