Desperate Romantics: Radio Interview


Still no sign on the intarwebs of the tv preview for Desperate Romantics. I've heard it has started playing (the commercial) on BBC 2, but it hasn't shown up on their official page, or on YouTube. But I did stumble on this interesting radio interview including sound clips, and the opinion of an "expert on Victorian art" who seems...a bit bemused by the programme.

By the way, a very big thank you to everyone who kept Tess in their thoughts yesterday. Her surgery took half the alotted/expected time, and appears to have been quite successful.

That is wonderful about Tess. Her website is stunning. I work in pathology and truly understand how serious pseudomyxoma peritonei is and am very glad to hear she's doing well.

Best,
Barbara

PS--the paintings you chose are some of my favorites, especially Night, which is currently my screensaver. Those paintings say it all...

I thought you might like to know that, if positive thoughts and prayers aid healing, you surely helped Tess yesterday with your post. I'm a perfect stranger and I thought of her.

I love your blog. I read it on LiveJournal but I wasn't sure if you get the comments there.

I just read this sentence in a review of Desperate Romantics and it actually made me guffaw:
"The group is led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Being Human's Aidan Turner) a priapic hedonist so lycanthropic he looks as if he's about to collapse to his haunches and start howling."

Thanks. I did find a preview review (does that make sense!) in the Guardian:

but you're quite right, no sign of the video yet.

Keep us posted on Tess's recovery, Grace! She is in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you are hanging in there; it is difficult to see a good friend suffer so. Talk soon, Anita
