Coronation Street Fears The Hours of Darkness

Continuing my unlikely look-alikes, have you noticed how Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) with his shaved head looks awfully like Count Dracula (Klaus Kinsky)? I think we should be told about this.

The Monk Raises A Question

At the weekend I watched The Monk, Dominik Moll‘s supernatural thriller adapted from Matthew G. Lewis’ 1796 gothic novel of the same name. I really enjoyed it and must persist with the book which has been on my Kindle for the best part of two years.

I do agree that it’s far superior to The Woman in Black which bored me so much I dozed off – something I usual do only while being forced to watch action films! Here’s the trailer:

 

 

 

Now you know how my mind works and I wonder if you’ve had the same thought – how come Vincent Cassel (French film superstar and playing the lead role in The Monk) looks exactly like English soap actor Ian Reddington? I think we should be told.

Well, it’s that date again when Europe is subjected to the audible and visual disappointments of the Eurovision Song Contest. So today I’m doing a little twist on my Look-alike series. Not look-alikes, but name-alikes.

Mantel

 

Author Hilary Mantel (what is it with that exaggerated pronounciation?) has been having a go at future Queen Kate for being a bit plastic. I couldn’t help noticing the amazing similarity between Queen of the Prizes who writes about old royals, and Queen of the People who used to keep young royals in line. Are they related? I think we should be told.
