Amazing.  I finally remembered something else from my single viewing of this cakewalk!

Roger's scenes were really heavily cut in the final edit, weren't they?  Or maybe some were simply never filmed...

Doctor and K9, the first season of PD comes to a natural conclusion, but the door is left open for a sequel.  I was actually quite pleased that writer/creator John Logan did NOT go for the wearisomely knee-jerk predictable end of season cliffhanger.

Am I mis-remembering, or was it the case that the dialogue in the scene that is starting now played in the final cut (shown at the Festival) as part of the breakfast scene?

In DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS (1965) [spoiler]the Count is imprisoned in the castle moat under ice at the end of the film.  In the following film, DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE, he is released when blood from a victim trickles onto the ice and revives him.[/spoiler]

According to Montague Summers in THE VAMPIRE: HIS KITH AND KIN (a fascinating volume), vampires cannot cross running water.  Since the castle was shown in the very first Hammer film as situated next to a babbling brook that one had to cross over a bridge, one wonders just how Dracula was ever able to leave his own home.

Very cool photo of the (un)Dead Kelly...

I'm not one for award shows but if these dumb little things may anything to anyone in the industry, Eva Green deserves some kind of extra-special one for her performance in Penny Dreadful.

Very cool.  I saw some of the first series of VIKINGS but don't recall Miss Greene.  Perhaps she appeared in series 2.

Great still (or is it a capture?).  I didn't know there was ANY photographic record of Hu's performance in the role.

I wonder if this is the only version of DS where the vampire's victim's body WASN'T "buried in the woods."

Those scenes are a riot, particularly Pfeiffer/HBC.  Thanks so much Midnite!

Those are such wonderful scenes.  I love the earrings Julia wears in the second one. Many thanks for finding these, MB.

I always find the scenes between the two women fascinating to watch.  Angelique is used to using her beauty and charm to get her way with people, and Julia isn't having any of it.  They first meet in the Spring of 1968 when Angelique has become the new Mrs. Roger Collins and is swanning around Collinwood in this big, black, heavily lacquered wig.  Julia is nice to her initially. But that changes.

The episode you mention is, I think, Julia's last episode during her appearance in the 1897 storyline.  Julia says that she's surprised to find she likes Angelique.  Their next meeting is in early 1970 as described above.

In 1840, their antagonism is initially the most sharply defined of any of their meetings.  But then later on they do work together one last time to help Barnabas.

I also very much enjoy watching Julia confronting Nicholas. All the supernatural characters on the series, from Barnabas to Count Petofi, are always impressed by the fact that their powers don't intimidate Julia.

Welcome to the forum!

DarkLady I totally agree.  I did enjoy HBC's campy performance.  She seemed to just hit the right note for what she was given to do.  It seems as if a lot of her material was cut in favor of Depp's excruciating pratfalls and mugging.

I don't recall today's HBC dialogue snippet from the deleted scenes in Depp Shadows.  I really wish I could just see the deleted scenes with HBC.  I have no desire to see any of the rest of it again, ever.

Fabulous scene.  It seems as if many of the best scenes were cut from the final print.  I'll try to restrain my comments about the ending since someone I am very fond of adores it.

Thanks for posting this.  Denise is a real kick.  She should be invited to more DS events!
