Huge smile!
I was wondering when television would bring these excellent stories to life.
We're all behind demanding the quality these books deserve. They are seriously above and beyond a lot of the mystery writers I have dabbled with - not many books make me stop my life to see what happens, and then stay in my head. Mark writes amazing characters who "people" our lives!

Or Every Rose has its Thorne - Poison!

Trust me to know a dodgy rock song. Cool



I love Poison... and Motley Crue! have you bought tickets for EXTREME'S tour yet H?

I dont get how David Morrisey can commit to Thorne what with him being the Doctor and everything!

I`m sure Razzle would have been more polite than old MM. I do agree that to be able to continue with nary a thought for the drummer or his family was/is shocking.
  Now, my fiend Kenny has seen a `Vince Neil/somebimbo` tape and he`s no Tommy Lee. Hung like a Chinese mouse was the phrase used.

I propose Mark and Gungho create a fresh piece of music for the theme (drums by Max, of course)

Can - Not  - wait to see David M as Thorne - he's the one I wanted to play the role, he is a great versatile actor and will do Mark/Thorne character  proud

David Morrissey - I haven't seen him in anything that I remember But looked at his biog, and I agree with an earlier post - too tall, too slim, too damm pretty... but, lets see how it turns out eh?
So, who will play the other characters - esp Hendricks and brigstock.
As to the Theme tune, It needs to be something country, something Johnny cash perhaps...

The sexy guy from The Wire could be Thorne I guess, or am I still thinking about Hayder's Jack Cafferty? D'oh.  Watched a couple more episodes last night, and that Wire guy is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I think I am in love.  He also has the gruffness, and the roughness, the height and weight (IMO).  Also, he was born in Yorkshire of all places, not the USofA as i thought!

Dominic West, that's the sexy guy's name.  Always thought maybe Thorne was a bit sexy ugly.  maybe just ugly, who knows?

But Thorne is supposed to be on the short side... Not Dominic West's 6'. I suppose us vertically challenged people are not in show business...

Anyway, I really enjoyed your 'thought process'. Haha.  Wink

Hi Psycho....Wink

Mmm, yes, he is rather short uh.
Oh well.  Dominic West plays EVERYTHING that Johnny Depp didn't get the role as in my head Smiley

I actually had dinner with Dominic West a few weeks back. He's a nice guy. But Morrissey's my Thorne. David, not Mancunian songsmith.

You're right about Omar, Tragic. What an amazing character...

Are there still plans for a BTZ meet up during filming to be in the background of the Indian? I think it's only fair (considering that before it gets shown next year, I'll be in WHSmith's circling the program in every Radio Times! ... that's if WHSmith is still around by then).
