Dept. of Memories

Oct. 27, 2013

I was doing something earlier this afternoon, when all of a sudden I thought, "It must be close to the anniversary date of Mum's death. Jeez, how could I forget?"

I didn't. My subconscious must have realized that today is the second anniversary of her death.

I still check in with her regularly in my head. By now, I've been able to watch a video bit taken of her during our last visit, something I couldn't do until recently. Life is still very much a "before Mum died" and "after Mum died" thing, but it doesn't loom as large for me as it once did.

I miss her, though.

Oh, I don't know - it very much depends on your tolerance for BBC 1970s theatricality! I wondered what I'd done and whether it was worth it even for Mr Collings when I first watched it. Just because it and JM then won me over completely doesn't mean that other people will like it.

You'd be surprised at how high my tolerance for 70s BBC is. I did, after all, live through and often love Canadian Broadcasting Corporation 70s dramas. They had a similar mise-en-scene. Heh. And of course, we did get our share of BBC imports.

Besides, James Maxwell has always caught my eye, as has, of course, Mr. Collings ....

Oh, yes - I mean, you were fine with S&S! It's just that, having watched a lot of old TV for a year at that point, including S&S, I nearly tripped up over the first episode or so of this until it got going. David Collings is in eps 3 &4, and ep3 actually is one of his best performances, I think. And episode 5 is a very unusual and clever piece of TV. But then it has a couple of duff eps in the middle before picking up again. So, unlike some of the old things I really love, it's a bit hard to recommend to people unless they're especially interested in that kind of old school BBC historical drama - or, of course, if they happen to be interested in James Maxwell! ;-)
