Lynley's mom chooses her friends pretty well. I didn't think of that. I do love horses but i must agree with the helmet. I am glad that Nat didn't wear the one that Judith was wearing.This pink/blue thing.

See the positive side Paddy. You will see these episodes again on Belgium tv (if yuo can get that as i thought you were from Holland like i am) and the Dutch tv will broadcast them too but i don't know when. They still have to air season 3 here.

I'm getting sad to know that it's almost over but on the other hand I'm excited to see what they do for the end of this series. I hope they plan on continueing the series and there is a series 5 after this one. But one thing I do hope comes from this series is that they don't leave us hanging about Helen, what happens to her and Lynley. I understand the thing about the cell phone, I hate it when my hubbys phone rings during dinner/lunch. Coz then they get up and walk away just like Lynley in the show. Lady Asherton does have a way of picking friends. Maybe she needs to check them out better...maybe have her son run a check on them first...lol!!! But I do like seeing Nat on a horse he looks good on one. He has a way about him. And the jeans they looked great too. ;)

You know I have a real problem with Gabriel Drake as his mum, I haven't read the books so don't know if she's meant to be like she is in the show but i find her all wrong, i just can't picture him being her son. Now maybe thats because I've seen pictures of Nats parents and his father in particular here when he was Chairman of British Rail,maybe psychologically I just know that his mother is nothing like her, or maybe its because I don't see a single resemblance of any kind. I'd imagine a darker, bigger more aristocratic type of woman and I'm sorry but where in godsname did they get Judith, blonde hair fair features, so differant as to be....well...maybe that Doctor and his mother were having an affair for a long long time!!!! Peter is dark isn't he? I think in reality Nat will eventually look just like his father, he really is a chip of the old block.

As I sit here typing nats on the t.v. in the trailer for IL in that blue shirt and blue tie again, very dapper! very suitable for the House of Commons or is it the House of Lords...now can't you see Nat in his ermine and robes, I suppose if hereditary peers hadn't been disbandoned his brother Oliver would sit in the House.....now if if wasn't Ollie it would be Nat what a sight that would be! WOW

Hu Hu Saskia,

I usually prefer to keelhaul people rather than hang ‘em at dawn... being the water rat that I am. :whistle:

How’s your groom, I hope that she’s alright? Yep, I recognize a good horseman when I see one, actually I tend to get a little nervous seeing some actors pretending that they are. While watching them you’re always a bit worried about them just about to be getting unseated. I know Nat has been a keen rider all his life, so consequently he has to have his experiences with falls and smaller accidents (I have that Frost scene before my eyes right now - silly me). I know how it is, whatever one loves doing, no danger will ever keep you away from it. No risk no fun! :P

As for the blonde haired fair featured Judith. Who knows, maybe the writers had a certain flashback. I mean just a short reminder here: Nat would have been the last actor to play our Lord of Crime when it comes to thinking about the original Lynley in EG’s books, right? Alright just had to say this, being a natural blonde myself, hem hem, gotta fight for “blonde rights” here (we are dying out anyway). :S I don’t mind having ONE blonde in the Asherton family tree… Ok I am biased. However she came to be blonde? Maybe one of those rare specimens of spontaneous peroxide blonde? Well, a little infidelity might be another solution to that riddle... and more fun for the ones involved that’s for sure. I personally think that Nat has the best half of both his mom and his dad – an optimized mixture. Seeing Oliver I believe he’s more his father. Besides, the important thing is what you’ve learned and internalized from your parents: love, support and respect. It’s not about being the genetic blueprint of your parents (oh mi god I am being ethical). :blink:

Which makes me think about Lynley’s mom. I like Gabriel Drake as Tommy’s mum, but I had my difficulties with her reaction towards Lynley’s openness and willingness to speak to her about his separation from Helen all of the sudden. I mean sorry: I am waiting for my son to talk to me for weeks, I know it’s hard for him to express his feelings, finally he does and what do I do: send him to the garden to serve my guests some TEA??? :sick: Excusez-moi, je ne comprends pas. Is this the famous British understatement I am not getting here? Am I on the wrong track or is my mom being sooooo much different from aristocratic mothers? I leave it up to you. But that’s nothing to do with the actress, that’s the script. Yours forever wondering….

Cheers!

Hi, I haven't read the books so I haven't a clue what IL is supposed to look like, is it entirely differant from the series? Also I think the way she portrays the mother is very aristocratic, you know rather cool and somewhat distant, I think thats the typical upper class mum who's son been a boarding school forever, but she just doesn't look right to me, sometimes I think she looks too young! Now I do agree with you about Nats real parents, he has alot of his mother as well, and oliver is 'exactly' like his father, but I also think that Nathaniel has very much his fathers face, I reckon when he gets older he'll really look like him, thing is ....he has the hair! Poor Ollie is balding like father whereas lucky old nat has the full head of hair, no thinning at all, makes such a differance don't you think. Maybe Nat'll lose it when he's older......sob sob...methinks he probably won't, I think he'll be like Alan Rickan hold on to his fine head of hair forever. Just hope he doesn't dye it though, I mean it can't stay jet black forerver and ever then he really would look a bit 'sad'. Can I just say something ........I hope I don't offend people when I joke about nathaniel parker, i just don't take it 'seriously'. I kind of thought nobody else did, but when I mentioned what the critics said and how I sort of could see where they were coming from, some people sounded soooo upset and honestly I didn't mean to offend. I just think its all a bit of fun, Nat Parker is cute but he's not 'perfect'. well almost not! and I think Inspector Lynley is excellant but certainly not the best thing he's done. But I don't want to upset people by being blunt. No offence intended...honest!
