Side Dishes: Speaking of Aidan Turner

He’s got one of the best parts in a notable ensemble for the BBC production of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. What would Miss Marple say about some of the language?AIDAN 4Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 5.58.15 PM 1

Sorry about the quality of the screenshots – And finally, could Aidan Turner be the next James Bond? It must be discussed if he’s in a tux.

  1. Oh my…he looks quite good in a towel doesn’t he?

    I’m pleased AT has got so much good work – he’s a fine actor and seems like a decent man. However, I can’t see him as Bond, but then I didn’t see him as Poldark either – and still can’t quite warm to him in that role. It would be great to see him do more original roles.

  2. It will be nice when this comes around to be seen locally. I’ve enjoyed the stage play Ten Little Indians, and marveled at the slight of hand involved with the figures. (Lots of clever redirection and misdirection involved.)

    But I do imagine Aidan was quite good in this and looks fetching in (and out of) a suit. But I am still in Richard’s camp as far as Bond goes, sloppy articles or no.


  3. AT is embracing the ‘hunk’ business for all it’s worth, the other guys wore dressing gowns! Still who could can blame him the BBC has certainly kept the momentum going.


      • Yes, he was – both AT and TS are fleetingly each shown wearing only a towel ! (Though strangely, most people only seem to have noticed AT!) It’s a great production – really ramped up the tension/peril and the background music added to it! AT, Toby Stephens, Charles Dance and Sam Neill were all excellent (and SN ages amazingly well!)

        Don’t see AT as Bond either – in the UK there’s quite a lot of debate about Idris Elba doing it but another favourite is Damian Lewis.
