I loved the old TV series, so, I think I will give the remake a miss. I’m not much for upgrading nostalgia – but this is not a discussion about originals & remakes.
Though it is, in a way, a reflection on things past & present. Temps perdus & temps perfides, if you must.
In the original BBC TV drama, the genially evil Francis Ewan Urquhart has this ur spinny catchphrase, “You might think that; I couldn’t possibly comment”…
… and however much I love the little word, you might think that it is a rather sad reflection on the times that the above phrase translates into today’s mono-syllabic “Duh!”
