I'm determined to get a line for my [community profile] trope_bingo for amnesty, and I'm so near - I just need to type a couple more things up! So, I went to my notebook and instead typed up this for [community profile] hc_bingo (for "nausea," although mostly the metaphorical kind), because I'm contrary like that.

(I had to rewatch an episode for it. Probably I shouldn't have done it quite so soon after watching the OUaT finale, because in comparison the special Christmas episode where someone has to murder their dearest friend ever felt like a Dementor in TV-form, sucking all the joy out of life. Knowing where it ends up, I have to say Manhunt is the most cynical, bleak, twisted up look at WWII I've ever seen. My experience isn't massive, but even so...)

Anyway, as I may have mentioned, Vincent, one of our Extra Specially Terrible Resistance agents has top Nazis falling over themselves to die for him, one way or another, so I wrote fic about it. Even if old telly means never knowing how to spell anyone's surnames.* Spoilers abound, though, so this will probably be read by no one ever, alas. But I feel accomplished. (I just need to write Nina/Vincent/Jimmy now for my [community profile] trope_bingo "huddling for warmth" square, because if you have a practically canon OT3 who have to hide in barns and hedges in a freezing winter, it would be ungracious not to do it, really. After I've typed up the squares that'll get me an amnesty Bingo.)

Your story synopsis makes it sound like a Manhunt/Ghostbusters crossover. I'm not quite sure what that would be like, mind! Egon Spengler exorcising Nazi ghosts, perhaps.

Congrats on (nearly) reaching a bingo!

One day we will learn that watching modern TV is simpler. ;) These days you can Tweet to a show's writers to ask them details like that!

Good luck with finishing the trope bingo line and for hc bingo (I've given up on mine, it turns out I'm not a natural hc writer) \o/

I wonder how many confused 'Ghostbusters' readers you'll get;)

'Manhunt' is BBC isn't it? If it's ITV I could have a quick look at the TV Times for you.

The TV Times credits stick to first names (Nina, Vincent we meet in the listings again) or Colonel Surname etc. And Egon is lised as Egon! I did learn what the going rates for Nazi memorabilia were in 1970, where it was filmed (Henley-on-Thames. France wasn't France enough) and view Robert Hardy's broadsword.

You could get lucky with scripts on ebay one day. It happened with Callan!
