Because It Is Way Too Late

. . . to call Miss Nemesis and squee like 14 year-old girls.  I was checking the TWoP forums for Sense & Sensibility when I got sidetracked by their thread for North & South.  And I was informed that one Mr. Richard Armitage will be joining the BBC's Spooks.  You can read about it here.  I am seriously too excited to sleep now.  I started watching Spooks ages ago when A&E still ran shows worth watching.  Then life got busy and I lost track of it.  But I still remember it fondly and it is occupying quite a bit of space on my Netflix queue.  It was where I first became aware of Mr. Matthew Macfayden AKA the new Mr. Darcy.  Right now Mr. Rupert Penry-Jones (the new Capt. Wentworth) is the lead on the show.  And starting soon, our beloved Mr. Thornton will be taking his place amongst the agents of MI-5.  If there is anything as dreamy as a gruff, but lovable, literary hero, it is a gruff, but lovable, secret agent.  I think I just might spontaneously combust.

All I have to say is Yummy! I just need to break down and by North and South. I find myself talking about it when every Jane Austin is mentioned. People just give me a funny look. Then I have to say it's not the Civil War one with Patrick Swayze. Then I have to explain to them about Mr. Thorton and how he is even more lovely then Mr. Darcy. (Deep Sigh!)

Heather - Spooks is known as MI-5 in the states. And looking (more) at that picture, does anyone else think he would make an excellent choice to play Old Harry at the end of the HP 7 movies?

Uh, yeah! That would be fantastic! If they ever make it to the end of the movies.
