|Izzie finds a good use for Ulysses|
The headline says it all. If I’d been Ulysses, even Poseidon would have given up. Molly would have had nowhere to shout Yesyesyes, because I would have been hogging the bed.
Humane, cunning, distraught. Andrew Scott – who plays a very camp Moriarty on the BBC’s Sherlock– was pitch-perfect as Stephen. Insufferable but low-key. His straight delivery of some of the big lines – cracked looking glass, history is a nightmare – you know the stuff – made me laugh out loud. It was the first time I really heard them as funny. I kept missing Niamh Cusack as Molly, but have the podcast for later. Stephen Rea narrated.
