When I ordered this dvd early March, I could never have thought how it would have turned out. I am a big fan of the late Ian Richardson and I just bought it because everyone was very enthusiastic about it, but I didn't carry any interest in it. So when it was up for € 12,99 on Play.com, I couldn't resist. I bought it with a whole lot of other dvds, it arrived and went straight to the shelve, I'm ashamed to say. It wasn't until a couple of days ago that I decided to watch it.
I was literally blown away by it. Michael Elphick is brilliant, but Ian was even more. I found myself laughing at every sneer Major Neuheim gave, at his characters of Stan and Melfort. Just goes to show what a great actor the man was. I'm really ashamed that I was so careless in thinking that I might not have liked this series: I watched all 6 episodes in two days. And now it's become one of my favorites.
Thank you Jack. Thank you Michael. But above all, Thank you Ian. RIP guys.
