City of Death
(City of Love)
Cité de l'amour
Cité de la mort
Running Through Paris - sound (Dudley Simpson)
and vision (the Latin Quarter of Paris, including Notre Dame and the Louvre)
Tom and Lalla: Clever people being clever (something JNT went about dismantling), but also at the time, and clearly, very in love
Duggan (Tom Chadbon) as K9 for this episode or rather Bulldog Drummond but with a touch of an American gumshoe complete with light trenchcoat. Deflates the Doctor's and Romana's loftiness and putdowns - outwitting Duggan at every turn - by saving the day with a punch. Comedic rather than instructive, Adams and Doctor Who being self-effacing - different to Saward...
Douglas Adams' dialogue
David Agnew - originally A Gamble In Time by David Fisher
Julian Glover (the Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and acted opposite William
Hartnell as King Richard the Lionheart in The Crusade way back in 1964) - disco alien in white suit and satin bathrobe.
[Reminds me of Planet of the Ood, when Halpen (played by Blackadder's Lord Percy Percy and Captain Darling, Tim McInnerny)]
Katherine Schell. The Countess is clearly a beard!
Hermann (Kevin Flood)
Professor Kerensky (David Graham)
JNT: 20 pounds cheaper to go to Paris!
Thus was born the
on location run of the early to mid '80s; including,
Lanzarote, Seville, and what should have been Singapore...
The Leonardo 1505 scene - no Leo, a recurringly referenced presence that is always absent - but we see the blind vicar from last month and Packer! in The Invasion (Peter Halliday) before we see Captain Tancredi...
Graham Williams era - his vision in apotheosis, but he needed Douglas Adams to bring that originality.
Tom II - Gareth Roberts
Critique of the Art World
Eleanor Bron (the name was taken by McCartney, and Patsy's mother in the flashback scenes of Ab Fab)
via the forgeries but also commoditisation amongst collectors - art is to be experienced as an eternal but fleeting moment in time and of Time, as an experience of the sublime, which is beautiful because it is subjective as much as it is fleeting. It's not about keeping it under lock and key forever.
Genre: Master thief capers -
Thomas Crowne Affair
but also so Carmen Sandiego!
