    Re: Gene hackman

    Gene Hackman also nearly directed Silence Of The Lambs. He was rumoured to be in line for the Lecter role, either that or Scott Glenn's FBI veteran.

    I saw Arran Bell once as an employee of The Firm in EastEnders back in '88. Didn't look at all intimidating or scary. Not like Ziggy Byfield or the guy who played Dolly's husband in Widows.

    Re: The bill (1984-2010)

    Ted Roach's final episode as a Sun Hill copper was a hoot.

    In recent years, people have wanted The Bill to return. Not very likely, but if it did return, it would be on Sky or Watch.

    Re: The bill (1984-2010)

    I think when it was a 9pm show and had more violence and bad language in it added to its realism. It felt as if you were watching real coppers in action. I heard the 1st series got lots of...

    Re: Soft Cell and Marc Almond

    Where The Heart Is makes for a great tune. I saw it being mimed to on TOTP2 I think or Sounds Of The Eighties back in the '90s. It's on my USB player in my car.

    Excellent actor who gave 100% in everything he did. A powerful presence and I personally think his best period was in the 1970s.
