10 years of Flick Filosopher: there IS a Doctor in the house…

Well, this was a nice little surprise I came across as I was transferring old reviews to the new blog: my current boyfriend David Tennant from the latest iteration of Doctor Who, appearing in a British indie called The Last September, which I’d totally forgotten about:

The high-spirited Lois (Keeley Hawes:) lives a pleasant life in Ireland’s rural County Cork, at Danielstown, the manor of her uncle, the almost doddering Sir Richard Naylor (Michael Gambon), and his wife, the cold and manipulative Lady Myra (Maggie Smith). The year is 1920, and Ireland is fighting for its freedom, but even the battles that rage nearby between the British army and Irish nationalists are little more than a romantic notion to Lois. “Determined to be in love,” Lois allows herself to be courted by a British soldier, Capt. Gerald Colthurst (David Tennant), though it’s more the uniform than the man she fancies. Gerald seems drawn to her dreaminess, though his heedlessness to the fact that she is Irish, no matter how English she and the other Anglo-Irish appear, will be a problem.

Added it to my Netflix queue, though — can’t wait to see it again.
