who alerted me to the presence of Google PageRanks, and pointed out to me that I was unranked, and you know, I have absolutely no idea how I can fix this. *eyes side of page* but adding links will mess up my layout, y'all!
Philip Glenister (Y'know, Gene Hunt, everyone's favourite comedy misogynist*) is going to be in a "vampire-drama" later this year on ITV. The London Paper is calling it a
"contemporary spin" on the classic Bram Stoker's Dracula
[sic]**. Glenister's official site
is calling it The Last van Helsing,
but as much as it grates having everything with vampires these days being compared to Buffy
, I think in this case it's looking pretty strongly like they'd copied Joss' concept, stripped it of any of that nasty 'feminism' shit and pasted it on to Grange Hill
Christian Cooke - who played Will Scarlett's brother Luke in an episode of Robin Hoodie
, and Luke Kirkwall in Where the Heart Is -
plays Luke insert-surname-here, a 17 year old kid who is surprised one day when an older man from across the pond turns up and tells him that he has a dest - sorry, a Destiny - handed down from generation to generation : to kill vampires, fight demons, and otherwise stand between humanity and the evil vicious creatures of the night. Which include Mackenzie "Him off the Office
what was in Pirates
Did you get the important part of that summary?
Philip Glenister is going to play a Yank.
This is going to be rather silly, I feel.
*Ashes to Ashes topped last week's swoon by this week informing us that an intelligent successful 21st century career single mum really just wants to get pissed and recklessly shag arseholes. I'm sure Gene's misogyny would be easier to watch if the writers didn't so obviously share it.
**I'm assuming they mean "Bram Stoker's classic Dracula", as opposed to "the 'classic' Bram Stoker's Dracula", because that would be Very Silly Indeed. Almost as silly as the attitude to grammar that free-rag hacks seem to have.
