  1. I’d forgotten how much I love spy Armitage…. I really, really love him.

    • I took a look back at a bunch of stuff I haven’t spent much time with in recent years and fell in love again, myself.

  2. Hope he’s not afraid of heights. Or suffer from vertigo….

  3. Don’t remind me of Lucas and the roof.

    I’m in complete denial about the whole plunge off the roof episode- we didn’t see it so it didn’t happen ( stamps foot and pouts)

    • I didn’t post a picture of that, but he was on a roof at least FOUR times in series 9. So weird.

    • Stamping and pouting right there with you Bolly! I have the DVD’s of all 10 series and watched Seasons 9 and 10 only when they were on TV. In fact they may still be in their plastic wrap! I naturally haven’t forgiven the writers for S9 😦 Maybe Berlin Station will help to erase the triggers?

      • Is it too much to ask that he doesn’t die in this one?

        • I am kind of wondering how it ends. It occurred to me yesterday afternoon that they could turn it into a series with a complicated mystery at its core that could go on for several seasons (like Lost). I mean, the title is Berlin Station so the likelihood that they’d change the venue for possibly subsequent series has to be low, no?

  4. Is that the Belstaff jacket I spy in the FSB threatening picture?

  5. Hopefully Mr. Miller won’t need the crime scene cleaner squad after his roof top appearence!

    • Seriously. Particularly in S9 there must have been a cleaning squad dispatched after Lucas everywhere he went!

  6. Did you notice how stealthily RA was climbing past that roof top obstacle as Daniel Miller? Whoa, very feline-like.

    • I agree. He’s the only actor I know who can simultaneously leap tall buildings with a single bound AND look as graceful as a ballet dancer.

  7. I wonder if this role will generate some new fan fiction? I can only hope

    • inevitably, I think. I actually saw a fanfic the other day that put Heinz Kruger together with Everett Ross (the character Martin Freeman was playing in the latest marvel film). So I guess the question is whether we’ll want to read it … 🙂
