It's a small world after all...
So I caught "Jekyll" tonight - a British series about a descendant of Dr. Jekyll who comes to find he had a Mr. Hyde living inside him.

But... one of the characters looks awfully familiar. It's Denis Lawson - best known for playing "Wedge" in Star Wars, the innkeeper in "Local Hero", and being Ewan McGregor's Scottish uncle.

And when I look it up in imdb, up pops the name "Douglas MacKinnon" as the director. That's right... the director of "The Flying Scotsman"!!!

Which, by the way, I appreciate more and more since I've seen it. I keep finding myself noticing cyclists and bicycle design all the time now. *G*

I still have to wait another 11 days before I can see TFS ...

Am still hoping that they'll release SAH one day. Even if it's straight to video, that would be something.

Really? Does TFS come out on video that soon?

Ditto - but I'm still hoping for much, much more than straight to video for SAH. *sigh*

How are you holding up in the southern heat?

No - We're actually getting a cinema release! And it's in the two big mainstream chains, not the art-house chain. I'm not really happy about handing over wads of cash to the corporate entities in question, but at least I get to see it on the big screen.

The Southern Heat (!) is a balmy 12 Celsius here (high 50s F). Not bad for the middle of winter, actually, and we do usually have some sunshine in the middle of the day.

*L*! Sorry - I was getting you confused with another LJ'er whose name begins with an A and moved to Georgia lately (from the state we both lived in).

I remember her name now - "arevanye". Now that I look at your two names, I don't feel so bad for getting confused! *G* Thanks.

Wow, it IS a small world! I've found that to be true in the 1970's British punk scene too. Very incestuous...but not in a bad way, lol.

I've liked him since Cold Feet, and you should check him out in Murphy's Law.
