Richard Armitage decennial

We’re only a few weeks away from the ten-year anniversary of the first broadcast of North & South. While Richard Armitage had fans before then, that night in November 2004 lit the true explosion — the first time Armitage’s viewers crashed an electronic venue on his behalf and, a bit later, the birth of the expression “Armitage Army” to describe those fans. Here‘s the first public event I’ve seen announced. I’m sure there will be more.

  1. There it is! My moment. The moment he shouted “Stephens!” Though it wasn’t 10 years ago for me, it’s the moment he not only came onto my radar, but overwhelmed all my senses and sent me on a very interesting new path in life. =)


  2. The first time I “noticed” him was when they opened the door to Biblo’s. It wasn’t until I saw North and South 6 months later that I made the connection. John Thornton standing at the top of the stairs did it for me. He does know how to make an entrance.


  3. North and South was on Drama channel this last Sunday. Wonderfull


  4. Do you remember: Edith wrote to Margeret about her honeymoon from Corfu? (Klar erinnerst du dich!) Btw: Greetings from Corfu 😉


  5. I can’t believe how much it shocked me after having seen Proctor live, just started watching again yesterday and still went ‘wow!’I honestly didn’t expect all that intensity and presence to be there 10 years ago, silly me


  6. I saw ya!!
    It wasn’t love at first sight 🙂


  7. Where has that time gone?? I remember I was doing the ironing as I do in front of a good drama. Not much ironing was done during that hour for the next 4 weeks! For me, like Margaret, it was when we first saw him in the mill. My ovaries exploded and that was it.

    I have “met” and met some wonderful people and I am forever grateful to Mr A for enRICHing my life in so many ways.
