lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
I did actually make some icons for NaArMaMo that weren't from Enemy at the Door. Here are the rest (barring a few from Ripper Street that I hope to make a full set out of sometime) - mini sets on a theme for each day, in most cases.

For [community profile] hc_bingo square "Learning to be loved".

I made a Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer fanvid, Helen POV. I didn't even think that was actually possible, but apparently it is if you're me and you don't have much in the way of standards when it comes to vidding. In the middle of looking for some thoughtful, quiet old 50s song or an instrumental piece that would do, I somehow wound up with this. (I worried for a bit about whether or not it still met the prompt, but I've decided it does. I hope.)

They Don't Know About Us
Public Eye: Nobody else understands what Mrs Mortimer sees in Frank. (Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer, S4 fanvid.)

Music: They Don't Know by Kirsty MacColl

Or, in short, this is what happens in S4 according to Mrs Mortimer. Not particularly spoilery as such. Bookended with a little S6. Whether it's ironic, or horribly shippy, or just that Mrs Mortimer is right in fundamentals (and the long-term) if not the immediate outcome, I don't know.

Following on from my last post, I investigated Pauline Delany's IMBD, and guess what? First, I unknowingly recorded her ep of Bergerac when it was on and then deleted it without watching it because I missed her on the cast list, whoops. /o\ However, then I noticed that she was also in The Mind of Mr. J. G. Reeder in 1969, which... is a thing I actually already own (because David Collings was an evil Bertie Wooster-type in it that one time), but I didn't feel impressed enough to watch the rest. So, guess what I watched this morning?

(It was that point that I discovered that 4 out of the 8 episodes of S1 were directed by Kim Mills! I just didn't know who he was this time last year.)

The Green Mamba )

Also the Drama channel has now picked up Bergerac so I will hope very much that they manage to get up to S4 and the episode with Alfred Burke that may have traumatised me as a child. (And don't worry - I can't screen cap things from my DVR so you're safe from any 1980s Jersey shenanigans.)

6. Best title sequence

Public Eye had a different title sequence each series (except for S3), and I quite like most of them. However, while the usual theme is my favourite, you've got to give them points for S4: they not only made a new credit sequence, they recorded a different, slower and more downbeat version of the theme, and then "Welcome to Brighton?" had a separate, shorter credits sequence used only on that episode, in which we flick through Frank's prison file, which doubles up as a way of reminding viewers where they left him at the end of S3. If anybody could have forgotten...

The main/original theme and the rearranged S4 theme. (Written by Robert Sharples under the pseudonym Robert Earley).


8. Missing episode you would like to see found.

All thirty-six of them, of course! Narrowing it down, I'm more keen to see anything from S2 or 3 than S1, but anything would be wonderful. Everything that survives suggests it was always of a pretty high quality, and any tiny piece of Frank Marker than could be restored to the world would be amazing. (Sadly, they were wiped rather than lost, so... it's not likely, to say the least). Especially, I'd like the 8 lost Roger Marshall episodes, the 6 lost Robert Holmes stories, the David Whittaker, and the one that had Jacqueline Pearce in it, and also Pauline Delany's first guest appearance, but if you pin me down and make me choose one, then there's only really one answer...

"Cross That Palm When We Come To It" (S3) by Roger Marshall, the episode in which Frank gets set up and arrested, and there is no escape or proving his innocence for him. Viewers at the time wrote in demanding Frank's release, so maybe it was too heart-breaking to survive, but still, it's a crime that it doesn't.


9. Favourite photo/screencap

I thought about this, and flicked through my epic collection, but honestly:

The obvious one and some other contenders )

The questions! )

Since I seem to be determined to inflict fanfic on the world, here's a Frank Marker & Helen Mortimer picspam. I went to do something else, and then made these graphics under the heading of "research for fic". Probably a bit spoilery, at least as far as this relationship goes, but I'd imagine most people aren't going to watch it, so...

A tale of two mugs )

Since I apparently have no brain whatsoever for anything that isn't Public Eye still (sorry!), I might as well amuse you with a couple of screencaps of things that entertained me:
