a great loss to the drama of politics

very sad to read today of the death of Ian Richardson – what a great actor; what a real loss. House of Cards was another seminal series (alongside West Wing) – and an improvement on the books – not least because of Richardson’s incarnation as Francis Urquhart. awesome. I’m tempted to find a way to include the words ‘You might think that but i couldn’t possibly comment’ into this posting – but will resist the urge.

    That’s too bad. I really did like his work. I recenty rediscovered him in that 2003 supernatural series on BBC, “Strange.” as the acerbic Canon Black.
