Mad Dogs on the Road
With the cast (John Simm, Philip Glenister, Marc Warren and MaxBeesley) about to fly out to South Africa on 20th Janaury to begin filming Series 3, we rejoin the Mad Dogs just moments after the final scene of Series 1, when you’ll recall that Quinn had shot dead the crooked female detective to prevent her from shooting Baxter…. we left Baxter, Woody and Rick sitting silently in their hire car, and we were all wondering ‘Will they go back for Quinn?’ Because he had told them to go, electing to stay and face whatever came next….
Well, of course they do go back for Quinn… and Baxter decides to put some of the drug money in the boot of their car. The usual Mad Dogs chaos ensues…
I’ve added screencaptures from short movie Devilwood, and from episode 2 of The Devil’s Whore (Thanks again to Kari for these!)
Screencaptures from the final episode of Exile have been added to the gallery, along with screencaptures from the first episode of The Devil’s Whore (thanks to my lovely friend Kari for these!!).
I am in the process of trying to get the gallery back up to date with screencaptures, but with a busy family/work life at the moment, it’s been taking longer than expected. Today, screencaptures from Exile’s second episode have been added to the gallery. I am in the process of sorting from the final episode too, so hopefully they should be up by the weekend. Then, hopefully I shall be able to complete the Mad Dogs section too.
Television Drama > 2011 – Exile > Screencaptures – Part 2
Sky1 has commissioned a second series of John Simm and Philip Glenister drama Mad Dogs.
Simm, Glenister, Max Beesley and Marc Warren will all return for the second run and have also signed up for a potential third series. Filming for the four-parter will start this summer in Majorca and the show will air in early 2012.
The first outing for the dark thriller was a ratings hit for Sky1 in February and picked up a BAFTA nomination for ‘Drama Serial’.
Characters Woody (Beesley), Baxter (Simm) and Rick (Warren) will kick off the second series where they ended the first, returning to aid their friend Quinn (Glenister) in Majorca. However, the guys soon regret their decision as they end up involved in another murder and drug money incident.
Exec producer Andy Harries said: “Mad Dogs had such an impact that it was as obvious as a dead goat that we had to do more and all the our amazing cast felt the same.”
Fellow exec Suzanne Mackie added: “Before we had finished the first series of Mad Dogs we felt that there was so much more to do with these characters. I have been working with Cris Cole on the scripts ever since we finished shooting series one and the ideas for series two and three are every bit as explosive and inventive as they were at the beginning.”
Sky1′s directer of programmes Stuart Murphy said: “Customers loved this show so it’s great to commit to more. At Sky we work hard to bring our viewers high quality original entertainment made by the very best production companies with fantastic talent so I’m delighted we can confirm Mad Dogs’ return just a few weeks after the first series has finished its run. This also marks a growing investment in British scripted content, to sit alongside our great American shows.”
Over 550 HD screencaptures from the first part of Exile have been added to the gallery.
Screencaptures from part 2 coming soon!
Life On Mars star John Simm has revealed how he was so badly hit by stage fright last year that he thought he was going to have a heart attack.
Actor John, 40, said the ordeal almost put him off taking on his new role as burnt-out journalist Tom Ronstadt in BBC1 drama Exile, which started last night.
John said nerves got to him as he played Hamlet in Sheffield. He added: “The pressure backstage on the press night was ridiculous. I just thought, ‘I’m going to have a heart attack’.”
“I was absolutely adamant I wasn’t going to do anything else. Then this arrived and it was so good I’d have been an idiot to say no, because someone else would have done it. And I’d have spent a long time regretting it.”
Exile (part 1) screencaptures will hopefully be added tonight!
John Simm has bemoaned the fact that his wife and son watch “bloody” reality television programmes.
Speaking to the Radio Times, the Exile star revealed that he and his son Ryan, however, have found a shared enjoyment in watching Laurel and Hardy together.
“My dad would go red in the face and fall off his chair, crying with laughter at Laurel and Hardy,” he told the magazine. “I laugh at it, too – not like that, I don’t laugh like that in general! And my son laughs at it. That’s unbelievable – three generations, and how old are those films? It’s like it’s from a time capsule. It’s mad. I’m so, so glad that my son likes Laurel and Hardy.”
Yet he admitted: “He won’t watch them in black and white. It’s the colourised ones for him, which is hard for me. But at least he’s watching them. His generation don’t get things that aren’t in colour.”
Simm concluded that his absences due to work mean that he cannot always control his son’s viewing habits, saying: “He watches those bloody reality shows with his mum, which I’m not happy about. The ballroom thing and the popstar talent s**t things. Which, I’m a bit p*ssed off about.”
Simm will appear alongside Jim Broadbent in psychological thriller Exile on BBC One at 9pm from next Sunday, May 1.
For all of you lovely Brits – tomorrow John will be appearing on television show The One Show. This is on BBC1 at 7pm!
Some HQ promotional stills and images have been added to the gallery!
