So I am watching every mystery/crime-solving series Netflix throws at me (EXCEPT NOTHING BASED ON CHRISTIE YET FOR SHAME FOR SHAME) and I’m watching “Cadfael”, which is about a crime-solving crusader-turned-monk and it has the most fabulous Derek Jacobi and he’s a part of my most secret and forbidden of loves: the old gay British Shakespearean actor league.
Also, I realized I love Sean Pertwee as the sexy sheriff sidekick, but he’s only around for 4 episodes before he is replace by two sub-par actors.
And I’m sorry but I must mention the Doctor Who connection: Sean being the son of third doctor Jon Pertwee (and wanted to be the eleventh doctor?!?!!), and Sir Derek being the secret reincarnation of the Master before he turns into the beautiful John Simm.
Sorry, I have probably had one too many glasses of wine (that is, one) and I wanted to express my love of Sir Derek through drawing (I really love his little lips…I can’t explain it):
This is really him, though:
(ALSO I JUST GOT DEADWOOD THE COMPLETE SERIES. TOO EARLY FOR A RE-WATCH?! I THINK NOT)
