The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher

It was the true-life murder case that took the Victorian world by storm in 1860. It inspired Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle, among others, to delve into writing murder mysteries. 

The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher 

Today's spotlight is on the 2011 dramatic retelling of the real-life murder of three-year-old Saville Kent, who was found at the bottom of his family's outdoor privy with his throat slit.

With no obvious motive for the murder, no witnesses, and critical clues--lost or compromised, Detective Jack Whicher, one of the eight original detectives of Scotland Yard, is sent to delve deep into the affairs of all, to try and solve this puzzling mystery.

If you love mysteries, particularly Victorian, than you must check this movie out. It was very good. I watched the whole thing, with my sister and a humongo bowl of popcorn, on YouTube. I could not find this available to us-non-Brits, in any other format. The quality of the video is slightly grainy but you can still enjoy the movie, no prob


 If you're worried about how graphic this is, don't be, it's not at all. It's clean and there's great acting and good detecting to be had for all.


 So enjoy and let me know your thoughts on this one!



Also, a second mystery movie, featuring the lead Detective Whicher begins filming in January 2013.  


Don't ask me why the font color is white in this post.

I have repeatedly highlighted "all" and made it "black"
to N.O. A.V.A.I.L. Grrr...

The Vacuum Monster and Road Trips!

Can I live here, please?
I had a wonderful, vacation day today. Quite niceeee.

I accomplished so many tasks that I have been putting off.  

For like years. 

Like cleaning out my car.

What a dismal way to spend an hour or two of my time.

But it had to be done, and I made a mostly thorough job of it.

Sand that has been in there from probably my first move from Florida five years ago, was evicted.

And you thought I was like this neat freak, didn't you?

Yeah, not when it comes to my old clunker of a car. Or my closet. Ssshhh.

I unearthed 9 pens. 3 markers. One brown colored pencil. And a file folder.
I had a bunch of old scrubs in my trunk that I finally tossed.

Why would I keep them you ask?

Because one never known when a situation might arise where you need to don a pair of old, holey scrubs and you could be like anywhere, which is why it's a clever idea to keep some stashed in your trunk, at all times.

And then, after I did a slightly, pitiful job of washing the outside of my car with no soap and a lame water hose with no handle-grippy thing that my apt complex provided, it was now...

Vacuum time!

I plunged two quarters into the silver, cylindrical, beastly, vacuuming machine and grabbed the hose which was like the diameter of my thigh.

Does anybody else ever break out into sweats the first few seconds of wielding that thing-specifically made for vehicles?

Afraid you might like accidentally suction your fingers and left ear off?

Yahh, me too.

I sucked up everything in range. Bandaid packagings, bobby pins, pennies, crumpled up flash cards and other useless debris.

I mean, that is why the hose is so big, right? I can suck up pretty much anything I like, below the size of a large, frying pan and still be good.

So that was fun. And I did windex all my windows.

So sparkly now. I can actually see out now.

heh heh heh and you thought I was swerving because I need glasses, sillies. Not anymore!

So now I am ready for ROAD TRIP to Miami/Ft Lauderdale for the weekend. Leaving tomorrow morning with my sis and bro. Good times to be had for all :)

And if ANYBODY, gets ANYTHING, messed up OR spilled inside my clean car -- they're walking Alligator Alley all the way home!

See ya on the flip flop!

Looks pretty epic.

Two of my favorite male actors - Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Sheen look like they 
will be fantastic in this. Also love that Sam Neill!

Triple yay!

I'm sure Aneurin Barnard who plays the male lead character will be brilliant, and
after this movie, every girl under the age of, well 
we'll go with any woman breathing and with a pulse,
will be in love with him, probably.

And every boy will want to be him no doubt.
