This was a journey like no other and one i will never forget. We arrived in Bath on Friday afternoon and spent our time getting our bearings because Bath is a place i have never visited before. In the evening we visited a few pubs , finally finishing our evening in a pub called "The Garricks Head" this pub is situated in a side street adjoining the theatre next to the stage door. This is when things took an incredible turn. We were sat at a table at the bar near to the door when a woman approached our table and asked if the chair that was unoccupied was availabe, "of course, please help yourself" i said. So she took the chair and sat down at a table behind us, in the meantime a table became available in the corner of the room right next to us, "i'll move here " she said "away from the door" . I nodded at her and left her to it. About ten minutes later who comes walking through the door, Martin and his girlfriend. He took a seat at the table with the woman who had earlier asked for the spare chair. At this point i am open mouthed and trying not to stare. Right !!!! Do i approach him, do i leave well alone, he is now deep in conversation with this woman (maybe it was a family friend,i'm not sure ) but the three of them were discussing the show so i decided to leave them alone. They stayed for about half an hour, nobody approached their table but he did smile and say hello if anyone recognised him, so he got an hello from me.

Saturday arrived in which we spent our time exploring bath.The evening couldn't come soon enough as i was looking forward to the performance.

I won't go through the play with you because i think this has already been covered on here but Martin was fun, the audience loved him and i could see more than one resemblance to his character "Doyle". Before too long i had eaten my ice cream, the performance was over and the cast were taking a bow and the lights were coming back on. Out of the theatre now and we decided we would have a drink before the night was over so back around the corner to the pub from the previous night. As we turned the corner i noticed 10 or more people stood outside the stage door waiting for autographs. I don't expect Martin to appear but i approached just to have a look. He appears in a blur , girlfriend in tow , past the autograph hunters and stops within a foot of me, "i apologise" he says "i can't stop to sign autographs tonight, i have a long drive home, i'm very sorry" and with that he disappeared around the corner and away. It's been fun, Martin filled and a wonderful weekend is now over and i am back home.

This was my view of the performance from the Dress circle.

Greetings from Devon, yesterday's evening sunset from the village of Instow

The lads got a mention on Sunday night on a programne called "It was alright in the 1970's" which looks at what wouldn't be shown on today's tv and what would be allowed back then. This weeks theme was sexism and certain celebs give their view on the scene being played out before them, this is what was said about this scene

"Enter the professionals with tough guy government agents Bodie and Doyle" then the scene cuts to our lads talking whilst knelt down behind the car and then the celeb gives his view " oh my god no". "she actually does have a hand grenade down her bra"
"in this 1978 episode Bodie slaps a terrified Pamela Stephenson out of harms way, undressess her to safety then galliantly shields her from the blast" celeb then says "he even concocts an excuse to jump on top of her whilst ripping her clothes off and throwing the bomb into the bin" "is she going to be grateful and those glasses are fantastic" the celeb ends with " i mean what we get here is pretty extraordinary, it's an exploitation of a film makers dream, violence, sex and an explosion and all somehow brought together in the same dramatic moment, full marks to them for ticking all of those boxes, actually what i think emerges most from tv of this period is the utterly casual sexism that is never the issue but is always the background buzz of the culture"

"so while sexism was in the background, sex itself was front and centre"

The celeb viewing this was Matthew Sweet, a journalist and viewer in the 70's.
At this present time there seems to be a lot of new facebook groups springing up and for the record i am not on facebook but that doesn't stop me seeing what's being posted. Having spoken to people here on lj and over on tumblr it seems there are certain people who think nothing of stealing other people's work without any credit to the artist involved and certainly without any permission. I like many others have had my work posted (especially on the Lewis Collins tribute page) by the likes of Julie Ann Smith, Wendy Nicholson Nergaard and Christian Davies who think nothing of posting anything they can get their hands on. I know my own screencaps and artwork and while there may not be anything that can be done about this i would like them to know that a bit of courtesy about crediting goes a long way or even asking permission first, it's amazing how many people like a certain person's work especially when it shouldn't be up there in the first place.

PARTY ON !!!!!!

what a night....YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE (and thinking of you Lew)

Birthday rememberance
