Uniform November Foxtrot  
Emphasis on the Uniform...

It's a thing of mine - I'll cheerfully admit it. 'Red Cap' was like crack...



Anyway one of the things about shiny new fandoms is getting to catch other things the actors have done you may have missed. Thanks to 'Sherlock', recent viewings include Martin Freeman's 'Who Do You Think You Are?' and Benedict Cumberbacth in 'Forty-something' (with bonus Hugh Laurie, lovely!)

And then I found out Rupert "Lestrade" Graves had been in two episodes of 'Waking the Dead' as a character called Lt Col John Garret... so I got hold of those...



DO WANT!!

He's got a riding crop FFS!!! And don't even get me started on the dress uniform...



And no, there really wasn't any other point to this post :)

You're welcome.

Bill's Air Force uniform and liberal doses of alcohol--that's how I wound up married...

LOL Love it. I married an AF man myself. :)

Don't they look great in their dress blues? :-D

I think the rule is you're weird if you don't have a thing about military uniform.

Argh. Why must that be one of my least favourite eps of Waking the Dead? You realise this will lead to my having to watch Subterraneans again afterwards, right? *g*

I LOVE a man in uniform too!

FFFF. Dress uniform. *faints appropriately*

Have also been enjoying snippets of "Forty-something". Have you gotten to the sex noises, yet?

Also, have you seen Maurice, yet? Young!Naked!Rupert Graves is worth seeing...

TOTALLY there with you on the uniforms. :D My sister's getting married in May to an Army guy, so they'll all be in dress blues (including an ickle uniform for my Boy-child, who's the ringbearer-- the cuteness of that is sure to be immense, lol!), and my other sister's already married to a Navy guy, where they were all in dress whites...

...why do I only have two sisters?? ;)

And meanwhile, I am keenly awaiting the eventual release of this film. :D

OH MY GOD I THINK I AM DEAD NOW AFTER THOSE PICTURES. GOING AWAY TO LIE DOWN IN DARKENED ROOM TO RECOVER.

(Sorry for capslock - dying.)
