    There are quite a few sites like that. I think it might be more trouble than it is worth to go after them, but I think if one got big enough, they would have to deal with legal repercussions. You can usually tell if a site is not legal if it doesn’t have any kind of advertising or fees. Although this has fees, the red flag is that they call it a donation. Also, all the legit sites are acknowledged by the productions companies and studios, and they will let you know when the shows will appear on streaming sites that they have contracts with. Netflix is a good example of that.

  9. That, my dear, is impossible to answer. How would I narrow it down to a single one? I can say that, although I find him very handsome, DS Anderson is not a character that speaks to me. On the other hand, I cannot help but be drawn to Cathal and Calum. Merlin has so many sides, I return to him often for both laughter and tears. What a grand beginning that gave our Colin. We will always be grateful to that casting Director. ❤

      As far as personalities, I love them all. But each has a different look, as you say. Tom intrigues me the most because I think he looks so different and this is the first character where Colin isn’t using his expressions to let us know what is going on inside. Merlin had five years to show us many wonderful expressions from sadness to humor (we don’t get that humor much anymore and I miss it). But I would have to say, Leo. Perhaps because he really was the character where I discovered Colin’s range of talent. But that face expresses both child and man, trust and mistrust, and loneliness, yet a complete connection to those who are his family.

        Oh that’s funny. I thought you were responding with personality when I meant face. But I think they seem to be interchangeable since Colin reflects the personality of each character through his face. I would have to add to Leo, great sadness yet a wonderful sense of humor that, almost reluctantly, escapes every once in awhile.

Curiosity discussions, speculations, blatant admiration…things like that. None of it was rude or ugly…just ongoing and in some respects, inappropriate for public social media, in my opinion, but harmless in intention. Knowing your feelings on discussions of that nature, I wondered if you had perhaps seen these conversations as well, and your post was your commentary on that. These same girls/women also recognize his undeniable talent. It’s just that the long conversations generally aren’t focusing on that. 🙂

I came across it the other day and felt it would be a good comment to publish. The reaction kind of surprised me, but then there was a similar reaction to “An Empathic Actor”, along with a couple of others. Doesn’t happen often, but occasionally.

        And, you were right about my reaction. Treating Colin like a lab rat doesn’t go down well with me. That’s why I stay away from most of the Tumblr/Twitter sites. So, it does appear this was accidentally timely.

  12. Good morning! It was a long wait for TLATD. Now that it’s here, I have rewatched it many times. My dvd’s will be arriving next week from the UK. That’s good news. What were some of the scenes which drew your special attention? Do you have any comments about the series as a whole? Any comments about this step in Colin’s career path?

    I think of all of you often, Leah, Jen, Joan, and Drew. What fun we have had sharing. It’s always a delight to see one of your comments light up the notification icon!

    As for me, I continue to be intrigued by Nathan, and as I rewatch, this series draws me even further into the possibilities of the story. Who was the first ghost? The one who came to his mother? I thought I had an idea, but she asked, “Who are you?” … which kinda blew my theory away … on the other hand, this story-teller has many tricks up his sleeve.

    Say, “Hello” when you can. Love, Suntse ❤

    • Good morning, Suntse. 🙂 Funny, when we heard that TLATD was coming out, I was looking forward to sharing our viewing experiences here, like we did with Humans. I was almost disappointed that it was released as it was…as a “box set”. Yes, we could have all decided to wait and watch it episode by episode, but I knew that wouldn’t happen. 🙂 The temptation to watch it marathon style was too overwhelming – we had waited so long. I know Joan hasn’t had a chance to watch it, so I can’t wait until she does (we are mentally standing by her mailbox with her as she waits) and we get her impressions (as much as she has pretty much seen every scene, but not as a whole), and I don’t know of Leah has watched it as we did on FindTV.

      I have watched it as a whole twice, and will watch it again over and over, as I’m sure there’s bits I’ve missed. There’s much to ponder and many questions remain unanswered. It will be interesting to see if Ashley and the other writers clean up the loose ends in a second series, if permitted. 🙂 There’s much more to learn about Nathan and his family…all of it. And no…I don’t know who Victoria was speaking to from her bed at that moment. That is one of the questions.

      You may have read my impressions of Colin’s performance in this series. His interpretation of Nathan’s struggles was marvelous to watch, particularly in the last two episodes.

      Maybe one day he’ll do something more lighthearted. 🙂

I have read a bit of Thomas Hardy since Pharoah mentioned him several times, so will look for those connections too. Saw pictures of the DVD cover and am glad Colin finally gets one to himself.

    So much to comment, but I will start with this. I think when we read that Colin only takes roles that are “daunting” or terrify him we nod and really appreciate that. But reflecting on his words after watching one of his performances, like that of Nathan, really makes you realize how this man has taken something that challenges and scares him and not only confronts it but masters it until you can’t help but think, what a perfect role for him, he was born to play this character. I think for many actors, those roles come along only only a few times in their lives. But with Colin, it is every role he chooses that becomes the role that he was born to play.

      I’d like to add something that I have been thinking about for awhile. I wish that there had been some flashbacks showing Nathan and his son together. I have noticed that quite a few people have commented that they didn’t like Gabriel and some even saying that he was evil. First of all, this was a little boy who only wanted his father. Never once did I see him as evil. I think for the sake of suspense there were scenes where you weren’t sure what he was going to do (like when he was standing near Lara’s baby), but ultimately he never did anything wrong. Had there been a few scenes of a loving father and son, I believe we would have had an opportunity to really like little Gabriel and then feel his loneliness without his father. But, we never saw anything but the ghost.

      Another reason I think we needed these scenes, is that by seeing the two together (and you know Colin would have created a beautiful relationship with this boy), it would have made Nathan’s grief even more real to us, as our hearts would have hurt at the loss of that relationship. As it was, we hurt for Nathan, we hurt for the pain he was going through, but we didn’t necessarily hurt for the loss of the relationship, itself.

      • Regarding Nathan and his son … I believe that it was Nathan who was hurting, anguishing really, for the loss of the relationship. Remembering Gabriel’s voice: “Daddy, play with me. Why don’t you ever have time to play with me?” Nathan was caught up in his work while Gabriel was alive. After Gabriel’s drowning, his attempts to reach his father proved futile because of Nathan’s refusal to believe anything that couldn’t be proved scientifically. Remembering Gabriel’s voice: “You didn’t want to see me.”

        This story reveals the sadness in the relationship which, Nathan knows deep down didn’t need to be and for which he feels a lingering guilt.

        Suntse, I love your pointing out the connections to Nathan not having time for Gabriel when he was alive and ignoring him when he was dead. I agree it was Nathan’s anguish. Also, Gabriel was being raised by his grandmother, so how often did Nathan come to visit? He was a little boy who longed for the company of his father and that continued after death.

        I do stil wish they had filmed a flashback or two. I still think seeing Gabriel before he was a ghost would have warmed the audience to him and also would have made Nathan’s grief all the more emotional for the audience.

        This is reaching, but perhaps lighting that fire somehow set the events in motion for the Applebys. Remember, the mother had never seen Lara before. She appeared on the night of the solstice bonfire right after it was lit. However, she had also appeared to Gabriel. Rewatching this does bring up so many more questions.

  18. Good morning, friends. Early Risers or Late to Bed? I’m up, middle of the night here, and was glad to see your comments. It will be back to bed for me soon; I have a lot to do today. But briefly … … Yes, a story rich in mystery. Nothing easily seen or understood at first viewing. We are still hoping Ashley finds a way to continue his creation.

    It seems we were all taken by Nathan’s mother’s concern that he should let Gideon light the Solstice Fire. A mystery apparently not solved in this (first) series. As for who did she see? My very first thought was a ghost of Olivia … but she says, “Who are you?” So, that doesn’t work! I agree that it must be Lara. Was this the first ‘Time’ overlap? Watching the approach to mother’s room, we see that the house is in a derelict state coming through the hall to the door … very likely Lara’s wanderings through the house … remembering that she brings the globe to Lottie … “Look what I found for you.” (not exact words), as she gives the globe to her daughter.

    More later … just wanted you to know, I will be rejoining you on this next re-watch. My dvd’s will arrive Monday! Having close caption may shed more light on this journey, as the dialogue I missed will become clearer to me. As with any great story-teller, Ashley has left us with much to ponder.

    (I often wonder how many viewers care to look deeper, and for whom, with only one viewing, the story-line has ‘finished’?) I’m pleased that we, here, have a desire to pursue questions and their meaning.

      I had not realized that the house we were seeing, before the door opened to Nathan’s mother’s room, was the one Lara saw. I will have to go back and check that out.

      I have been told that commentaries are no longer generally being done for television shows. I sure wish they had recorded a couple for this. There are so many questions that would have been nicely answered by commentaries. Not only that, but how they incorporated the history of the time, and what they did to achieve the the look of the show would have been interesting to hear about. For instance, the use of drones for some shots, that gave it another level of eerieness.

      I wonder if Ashley might put up a simple website where the story is finished and also where people could ask questions. The other idea would be to do some kind of audio book and perhaps some of the actors would return for that. However, I very much doubt it will be that elaborate. And that might also be my wishful thinking kicking in that Colin someday does an audio book.

Dialogue I had misheard or missed entirely came to light, and I was a kid in a candy store! Perhaps my hearing isn’t what it used to be, and the volume on my pc is rather low even when turned up full. In any case, six more times may be only the beginning.

        My idea that Nathan hadn’t had time to play with Gabriel was dulled in E02 when he tells Charlie that he and Gabriel had played with the soldiers 100’s of times. Still, Gabriel did complain that Nathan hadn’t had time to play. Also, I completely missed that once Olivia died, Nathan stayed in London and sent Gabriel to be raised by his grandmother, Victoria, at Shepzoy.

        So, more to ponder. BBC better have something amazing waiting for us to justify cancelling this series abruptly.

      Watched the BBCAmerica trailer for TLATD yesterday…they've really made it out to be a horror show, I guess for the Halloween crowd. I never found it scary at all – just eerie – and I hope the US viewers aren't disappointed that it's been portrayed that way, but really isn't.

      The Fall is being aired here on Bravo, so I've been recording it, as well as watching it through other means. 😉 I really don't need to record it, though, because, as you say, it will be on Netflix soon enough. Colin doesn't have a huge part in this, at least not so far, but it is nice to watch him in something until a meatier role shows up.

      Humans will be the Channel 4 version. AMC hasn't got their hands on it yet. It will be interesting to see if, when they do air it in February, they have murdered it like they did season one. 🙂 Anyway, I'm REALLY looking forward to watching it, especially after seeing some of the promotional photos that have recently surfaced.

      Anyway, I hope you feel better! We're all just ticking along, waiting for Colin's next projects to roll out. 🙂

  25. “The Fall” has arrived on Netflix!! I will spend the week-end watching all 6 episodes with the additional blessing of subtitles! It is exciting to know I will be able to understand all the dialogue at last. Will all the mysteries be revealed? I know you will all be watching as well. 🙂

  27. Hello 🙂 Apologies for my long absence, which may last a bit longer. My health has pretty much returned, though the illness has sapped by energy for the time being. To add to that, I am moving by the end of the month, have an eye surgery coming on Dec 4th, need to get my vehicle safety checked, repaired if necessary, and registered by the end of this month. Then there are the Christmas plans. We are all busy at this time of year. My beloved blog will need to wait and survive with a very occasional entry for now. I think of you all often and very fondly. Will keep in touch the best I can. Humans 02 is surpassing all expectations, and I am blown away by each episode to date. The philosophical questions raised give entry to deep and introspective thoughts about what is valuable, how we treat each other v. how we appear to treat each other, and the list goes on.
    Until next time, Suntse

  28. Hello friends 🙂 … This has been a long couple of months. I have missed you. Stop by when you can. Let’s touch base again. I know we are waiting now for Colin’s next project. Here’s hoping it’s “The Rising”, at last! ❤

    • Hello Suntse. 🙂 Sounds like you had a busy few months. I hope all is settled and you are well.

      As have we all, I’ve been following Colin’s progress with interest and anticipation, waiting for whatever comes next. My hope is Waiting For You, as at least that one is in the can. I just hope it will come to us in NA somehow, even if we have to wait for a DVD. It looks like an intriguing movie and it will be nice to take the bits and pieces we’ve been given and put them all in context.

      The other movie coming out soon, of course, is The Happy Prince. I await that with some trepidation. It certainly looks as though this role fits the “daunting” aspect of what appeals to Colin, so it will be interesting to see how it’s presented.

      I’ve been quiet on My Whispering Mind recently, except for my most recent post, in giddy response to the latest – no, not the latest now – photos released. Oh My! I do love those photos! You can certainly see in those alone how he could fit into some different roles. 🙂 Plus he’s just flat out gorgeous. None of us can deny that. ❤

      When time permits, I am planning some changes to my blog – it has become less focused on me and more on Colin, and I think I might formalise that change somewhat and remove some of the personal stuff. I find I don't need it so much now. 🙂 But I've been busy with grandchildren and a part-time job, so just need to shuffle priorities to make that happen.

      Anyway, take care, and we'll keep in touch here. Hopefully we will have a new project from Colin to chat about soon.

      Jen. ❤

      • Good morning, Jen 🙂
        Yes! Flat out gorgeous!! You’ve said it for me, as well !!! The move came at a difficult time, coinciding with illness and end of year chores. But a group of lovely friends from work took charge and got everything moved into my new quarters. Now it’s the task of unloading boxes, organizing, and trying to find things until that’s done. It was wonderful, and necessary to get the help, but I currently have no idea where to find anything 😀 . The illness sapped my energy. Many days wanting to sit down with Colin and you but finding the little grey cells uncooperative! At last that seems to be behind me, and I am ready to return to his adventures.

        The role of Bosie … reading about him leaves us to believe he was often unkind, selfish, and manipulative of Wilde. Hard to imagine Colin making him likeable as he has done with every other role thus far. Colin as a scoundrel. How will we absorb that? He not only challenges himself, he is challenging us as well. We seem to continue to learn from him, and our affection grows ever deeper.

  29. Leah, Jen, Joan, Drew … Hello again. 4 months later, one relapse after another, and I am just now beginning to feel tenuously well. I’m trying not to push my luck, take it easy, and rest a lot! I have missed you all so much and hope we can strike up a conversation again. Tell me what you’ve been doing, and how you are faring.

    Do you have any ideas or thoughts about Colin’s role as Bosie? I am rather intrigued, myself. Would love to hear from you about it. Love, Suntse

  30. Good morning, Suntse! I was enjoying your latest post. 🙂 Yes, we are all eagerly awaiting this sure-to-be-wonderful movie, and seeing Colin become Sean.

    I thought i should mention, just in passing, that the photo you used, which is wonderfully done, is a manip by Cathaloreagan. This is her tweet where she revealed it, and you can see from her comments below it that it’s her edit.

    I just wasn’t sure if you knew that, and thought you might want to maybe mention that in your post. 🙂

    Sooo glad to hear about Humans being renewed! Later filming that we would like….have a year to see the results, but it’s something to look forward to, for sure!

    What Colin’s doing in the meantime, is anyone’s guess. Wish we knew.

    Cheers,
    Jen

  31. I made the assumption it was Colin in costume as perhaps a promotional piece for the fund-raising efforts. Will have to be more careful in future. Love the photo though!

  32. Hi Suntse! Enjoyed your recent post, but thought I would point out that the clip that you’ve included isn’t a trailer from “our” Waiting For You. It’s 2 years old, and is from something different. I know it’s probably wishful thinking, and we are all on tenderhooks waiting for something to come out, but this isn’t it, sadly. 😦

    Did you see that The Laughing King will be available to watch tomorrow sometime! Can’t wait! Will be interesting to see if there are many changes from the found version from last year. 🙂

    Anyway, thought I should mention something about the trailer you posted. Sorry about that. I’m as disappointed as you, but hopefully something will be out after Waiting For You is shown at the Belfast Film Festival next week.

    • Oh, Darn ! Sorry to mislead. Apparently I’m not being as careful as I used to be. I saw that the trailer was from 2 yrs ago, but the work on WFY has been going on for at least that long. So, what is this ‘release date’ that was associated with the trailer? It did make me wonder that it was US rather than France. I am VERY confused!

      As always, I appreciate your input. 🙂 Sunny

    • You make a good point. We have been ‘waiting’ soooooo long, we are grasping at straws. This getting in on a film’s beginning is exciting. It is also making us aware of how long and tedious the process can be. We have cautioned patience in the past … guess, I need to remember that now that we are getting close. 🙂 ❤

  33. A new update on the continuing adventures of Suntse ! The rental house I have shared with my grandson since October has been sold and we must move by end April. Still topsy-turvy from the last move. The quiet life I had been living has certainly been turned on its head the last several months! 🙂 😀

  34. Thanks for the morale support. It really helps. We’re going to look at something today. Not many houses for rent here, and pet restrictions apply on most. Justin, my grandson, has a big (120 lb), lovable dog … but that will make it harder to find a place to light. I could find a place on my own, but we will try to stay together for now… not much time left however. Peace and Joy to you both! 🙂 ❤
