For Future Reference

For Future Reference

Having seen The History Boys and Starter For Ten in the past seven days it should be noted that I have developed a little bit of a crush on Dominic Cooper. I'm brushing under the carpet the fact that he spends the majority of the former in a school uniform and has a storming Essex accent in the latter, lest I start getting worried about myself. Because I'm already a little bit worried that multiple people have asked if I want David Tennant/ John Barrowman dolls for Christmas*. I've got to think: where will this end if I throw in uniforms and not very appealing accents?

Two words: Restraining. Order.

*The answer - obviously - being yes, yes and again yes.

I'm reading Untold Stories right now, and there are sections on writing both 'History Boys' and 'The Lady in the Van' - plus Bennett's diaries covering the period while 'History Boys' was written and produced - I have to admit every so often I will come to a passage and think of DA... I hope it's on your list, if you haven't already read it.

lol, billygean, right on cue ;-)

Stephen - on your suggestion I bought Untold Stories and I'm working my way through it at the moment and absolutely adoring it. It's odd, I never thought I'd lose my heart to Bennett - I suspect he might find me a bit giddy and frivolous - but I really understand him and I think he'd understand me a bit. I'm immensely flattered that he makes you think of me.
