I just bought the third episode and i am quite happy about it.......B)

I do realise that for the actors new things have come into their paths.....but...i also missed them...

Its just that we can´t see everything in the Netherlands.
(although we have had Mistresses.....:woohoo: )

In my opinion American series can´t compete with the English ones....they still have a long way to go....

But so many people so many tastes....(is this good English....:unsure: )

Ahhh, we shall see what will come into Dutch air.......in the mean time...i will have my dvd´s........

Greetings, Jolleke.

Just to put in my tuppeny-bit... I agree that the ILM are the thinking-person's detective series (not that there wasn't the occasional blunder, but nobody's perfect). I think they are just great. I own the sets of DVDs and always enjoy watching them.

However, I think it's very good that Nat now has a chance to remind people -- especially the casting people and directors! -- of his tremendous versatility. He's commented many times that people tend to box him into upper-class roles a) because of his accent and b) because of his association with the character of Lynley. Yet he's done so much more than this -- including his amazing readings on tape and CD. Even some of the reviewers of Quartermaine's Terms couldn't seem to grasp that his portrayal of St John is not 'just another toff' part! If I find this frustrating, I can only begin to imagine how frustrating (and insulting) it is for Nat himself.

I can think of several stories and characters that he should be playing... I hope his agents in the UK and USA do him justice. He deserves to be associated with and remembered as more than Tommy Lynley.

Hi Jolleke,

I agree with you, Jolleke!
I also love the English ones!

And if it is good English or not, it sounds good to me.
That doesn't say anything, of course, because I am Duth too!

Let's say it in Dutch: Ieder z'n meug!

Greetings, Erika

I now have all 6 series of Lynley on dvd. I too was totally upset when the show ceased. I enjoy watching the dvds over often.

I agree though that Nat is great and dives into every role with everything he has. I just think he should be the lead in everything he does. From Othello & Hamlet to Far From the Madding Crowd to Trust & Pretending to be Judith, etc. he was wonderful in each and made you know he WAS the character he was portraying.

I am just very anxious to see many of his other works. Lynley was my introduction to Nat, though, and I will always cherish my dvds of all the series.
