Ep1.1 of Perception was on UK TV last night. I have stumbled across something new to obsess over during the long wait for Season 2 of Ripper Street and Season 3 of Sherlock.
Obviously I have a huge weakness for dark, handsome, hyper intelligent men in tweed.
Also I read on tumblr that David Dawson may not be coming back for series two! :(
Awww, but Reid needs Best. The way their relationship developed over the 8 episodes was understated but brilliant. They started out in a state of mutual loathing but by episode 7 they had both realised that they could be useful to each other and that in many ways their jobs were complimentary.
Metropolitan Police officers of the 1960’s pose in replicas of the first police uniforms. Their CO, in the centre of the shot is wearing a modern uniform. The officer immediately to the right of centre is carrying a rattle in his left hand. This was the standard way of attracting attention for an officer on patrol prior to the introduction of the police whistle. The wearing of tailcoats and top hats was a deliberate move to distinguish the police as a civil rather than military force. The tailcoat morphed over time into a knee length tunic which gradually shortened into the more practical thigh length one of the late nineteenth century.
A fantastic night time image of Puma Court, Whitechapel, taken by Rob Clack. This is taken from the Commercial Street end looking towards Brick Lane. if you’ve been to Whitechapel in the evening you’ll know that Puma Court looks like this even today and has pretty much remained unchanged for 200 years. Along with Fournier Street and Artillery Lane it’s one of the best preserved streets in Whitechapel.
