An extra from a series being filmed by the BBC
blabbed to the press ,
the question would be if the extra were truthful.
Or just wishful thinking.

new series called COBRA

The same source [snitch] stated

the prime minister was at the bedsides of those
wounded when a plane crashed into their town.

The first episode airs this Sunday.

One of the adversaries faced by his prime minister character
is the Home Secretary who is power-hungry and ambitious.

When a natural disaster threatens,
not just the UK but Western Europe as a whole,
said Home Secretary argues with the Prime Minister
about: why give aid to France when we have greater need ourselves?

To which PM 'Robert Sutherland' retorts:
"You voted to leave the EU, Archie,
not the human race!"

Thanks to you folks I've just noticed the man. I didn't make the connection to "Trainspotting". I'm gonna follow him a lot more carefully now. We discussed his part in the recent BBC rework of "WOTW" (War of the Worlds).

I just now read the part he played in "Yesterday"!! The man was BRILLIANT! Damn I've got a new movie hero!

And he should have been in GOT. With his features and ability I can think of a dozen parts he could've played.

Dragon trainer.

We finally got round to watching The Legend of Barney Thomson..
For the most part a very fun movie...
I expect there wasn't enough money for reshoots, to sort out the problems,
to make it a really good film...???

I like Robert as an actor but he doesn't seem to have much knowledge about the Scottish Borders where I am from. In the interview with the Irish Times about the not being allowed back into Glasgow joke he says about his character

"He's Scottish, but he's 'rugby player Scottish' if you know what I mean, like a Borders type thing: public school, Oxford-educated – that type of guy"

That type of guy though is not your typical Borders rugby player. We are more similar to south Wales in that rugby here is what we played in all the local schools. It is the working man's game in the Borders. Virtually all the big name players from the Borders I can think of were just folks who went to the local town schools. The Public School posh rugby player stereotype thing was much more a city thing than a Borders thing. In fact up until the 1960s and 1970s we were supposedly way under-represented in the Scotland team despite Hawick and Gala being the two dominant clubs in Scotland. Maybe more than one reason and I don't think the SRU liked the independent streak in Borders rugby with the importance we gave the Borders League and Sevens Circuit - but seemingly the ruling body was dominated by Public School types and didn't want to encourage the Borders oiks too much. ;-)

Maybe "didn't want to encourage the Borders oiks" is a bit of a bad way to put it - maybe I should have said was pre second half of 20thC the posh Public School SRU tended to favour their own kind when picking players for caps. :-)

The premise of this entire suspense-plot is a natural event
which has already occurred once in recorded history,
in the 19th century.

I don't know what service it is,
but the entire six-episode series can be purchased
to be viewed. Streaming? something like that.

I've already seen a still photo or two from
an episode that has yet to be aired on television.

And in one of them, Carlyle's Prime Minister
has his lips pulled back, his teeth bared,
and a terrifying scowl in forehead and eyes.
Not so far removed from Begbie, after all ...

The success of this first mini-series
(Episode 5 out of 6 airs tonight)
had resulted in
an order for a second year of this show,
so another six episodes probably to be shot this calendar year.

Sky is the network doing this show,
and Sky is an acquisition of Comcast, I read.
But I can't say who the streaming network is.

This scene does not feature Robert Carlyle's character,
but it is from "COBRA" and shows
other characters responding to crisis.

actor Richard Dormer in COBRA
