Oh, I'm quite fond of that dressing gown.  It really brings a whiff of "Eau de Liberace" to the series....
I agree however that Frid looked fabulous in the smoking jacket.  The shots of him actually smoking while wearing the jacket on the OH drawing room set (which I assume were snapped during a break--probably while Bill Chu was working on his book) are sooo deliciously HIP.

Just chipping in my two drachmae--the fact that he is listed in the IMDB notice on Grayson's page as Ted (Bradbart) Brooks (if I'm remembering it properly) is a tip that he's not the same as the Ted Brooks who is bro to Conrad.

Historical research is largely a wearying process of endlessly taking pains...

Would have been even more fun if they had staged that scene with Jason in his smoking jacket and Barn wearing his dressing gown.  Poor Willie--the beaten-down butch fought over by the rival daddies!

I think it first got switched to 1797 during the Lady Kitty period (towards the latter part of the 1897 storyline).  I have wondered whether the writers changed it deliberately to make it 100 years previous to 1897. They seem to have liked doing things in periods of 100 years--think back to the original Laura Collins story (which they also messed with in the 1897 version).

As regards Roxanne, [spoiler]I believe that "originally" she was the victim of a different vampire.  There are a LOT of discrepancies between what we are told about 1840 during the Summer of 1970 story, and what actually happens in 1840 once they get there.  A huge discrepancy is that the children were supposed to be central to Gerard's interest in Collinwood... yet, when we actually get to 1840, the children are only peripheral to what happens.  In part, this was because David Henesy left the show during this period.[/spoiler]

If you're a Roxanne Fan, I think Kathy Resch wrote an entire novel which tried to reconcile the discontinuities of what they showed about her (the Roxanne of our time, not the Roxanne of PT).   You can write to Kathy at the World of Dark Shadows zine address and ask her if the book is still available.

Best, G.

Mscbryk, I actually find this fascinating!  Thanks for letting us know.

I think these photos were from an episode of the Dream Curse storyline; am I right?  Or is it the one from the original Adam "Experiment" sequence where Vicki was telling Barnabas how terrified she was of Cassandra and he found himself staring a little too intently at her neck?  (I do love that scene.)

cheers, Steve

I'm not sure that "your" Ted Brooks is the same bloke to whom Grayson was hitched. 

Hopefully Julia will be able to clear this up for you.

I bought it when it was fresh, hot and brand new on the stands way back in that Summer of 1968.  I kept it with a bunch of other DS related mags for years.  They disappeared mysteriously while I was away at college.  To this day my Mother disavows all knowledge of what happened to those zines.

Hi Josette, I've been a DS fan for 38 years and I've STILL never watched the whole thing from start to finish.  There are episodes from 1966 and 1967 that I have yet to see.

I'm not sure when I will ever be able to watch the whole series starting from episode 1 and ending with 1245.  Maybe when I retire if that ever happens (I find it doubtful).

Would love to see your cake. Enjoy your party.  It's nice that the whole family enjoys the show!

How intriguing.  Have any other photographs of this Barnabas portrait been published?

It looks as if this incarnation would have been the most Byronic Barnabas yet... glad to see they finally got the hair and clothes right for the 1790s... (although I'm a huge fan of the actual series' OTT let's-go-rococo version of 1795).

Best, G.

Thank you, David, for letting us know.

I will keep Craig in my prayers.

I love the Thayer David one.  Pity that doesn't circulate more widely.  I believe Bobubas does sell it.
