#ManCandyMonday A Different Shade of Jamie Dornan

So I know lots of you have run out to see the latest installment of that story, but today I’m sharing a more intriguing side of Jamie Dornan – his role as serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC’s THE FALL.

I’m a little late in the game to see this crime drama. Season 3 just ended this past October and there are talks of a Season 4 in the far off future.

I did my equivalent of a binge watch, catching two or three shows at time when I could. It was really fascinating to see the police procedures in another country and how a female Detective Inspector (Gillian Anderson) deals with men in power, her own demons, and the reality of a serial killer who is highly intelligent, methodical, and scary. Handsome. The face of an angel with a soul filled with evil. Fascinating.

If you get a chance, check it out. It’s available on various streaming services.

#ManCandyMonday Idris Elba

I’d noticed Idris Elba off and on in various programs and movies, but he really snagged my interest in the BBC One series LUTHER where he plays a detective with very deep and scary secrets. It’s a fabulous dark psychological crime drama and we binge watched it on Netflix. I highly recommend it if you love police dramas and if you love London. It was awesome seeing them running around in places we had been lucky enough to visit.
