Anonymous asked: Warning ("Neverland" and Lewis "Expiation" spoilers): Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly sure James Wilby (Deare) is the first actor to play a baddie twice in the Morse-Universe. He also played wife-murderer Hugh Mallory in Lewis's "Expiation." Like I guess that's the only cool or positive thing that I can come up with from the last episode. (Really stretching a bit here).
Wow, good catch, thanks for bringing it up! I’m really bad with faces (I’m faceblind) and tbh I had lots of problems telling people apart in Neverland (Standish and Deare, Chard and Church, Landesman and Wintergreen … ugh they all look alike to me when I’m not paying close attention). Thankfully I watched it with the gf who pointed out who was who (and that Landesman and Wintergreen were in fact two different people lololol).
Hey, well-spotted! [x]
As well as the double Morse-verse credit, James Wilby has played ITV guest baddie twice in the past week:L&O UK S8E6 ‘Bad Romance’ as well as Endeavour S2E4 ‘Neverland’. And a great guest villain in Ripper Street S2 last year…
If you have trouble remembering faces, you need to see him in Maurice (which is an addictive film anyway)
making out with Hugh Grant and getting seriously deflowered by Rupert Graves when he was young and beautiful: [x] [x] [x]
Oh shit, that was *him* in Maurice? Lololol this just goes to show how face blindness works. It’s not about remembering faces; it’s about seeing them in the first place. But thanks for drawing that connection for me. I never would have guessed in a million years. D:
Forever anguished by James Wilby’s abilities as a villain, seeing as Maurice is one of my favorite films and now he’s always the baddy. However, it is fun seeing him pop back up every few years, often in period pieces, and imagining how Maurice would look as an older man.

runaway robot breaks into a workshop to fix a broken leg but is discovered by the mechanic who works there . …..
Okay, so. I saw this post a few weeks ago and loved it. And then I realized I loved the setup so much I needed to run with it, so I wrote a thing.
I now know these characters are the artist’s OCs, in a robot AU, but I didn’t know that when I got inspired, so I made up my own OCs to go with the scenario. I’m sort of proud of it, and figured hey, it’s a Tumblr thing, I’ll contribute my own Tumblr thing based on it. It’s below the cut.
It’s only a half-formed thought of a scene so it ends kind of abruptly, but robots are fun, so I might come back to these two again at another time.
