I am quite enjoying Homeland on a Sunday evening [although I think the plot is moving rather slowly at the minute]
I read somewhere that President Obama enjoyed it when it was shown on American TV. The male lead is Damien Lewis – like Benedict Cumberbatch, he is yet another Old Etonian [but DL is 5 years older than BC so they probably weren’t schoolmates]
He has quite a long list of acting credits, on both sides of the pond. This week I have also listened to him on the Radio[on iPlayer as I cannot usually manage to hear Radio 4’s Afternoon play ‘live’] It has been series five of ‘Number 10’ – in which he plays Simon Laity, a Tory Prime Minister. Where was I when series 1 – 4 went out? I’ve found this series clever,witty, poignant [and – as it is about MPs- very irritating in places]
How did I miss the earlier stuff?
Is anyone else watching Homeland? or listening to Number 10?
What do you think of them?
