Our Newest Crusader

Yes, this wonderful story is still being discovered and the lastest one to fall under the spell of North and South is the very talented Nalini Singh. I know she had to wait for quite some time for this one so I Double Delighted that she loved it.
And now she too *g* is wanting to get her own copy.
I haven't watched it for a while myself - but this will be changing Christmas Eve. It's going to be my Christmas Eve treat - four hours of John Thornton and Margaret Hale - *shiver*

And thus - in honour of our newest Crusader - this certainly calls for...........a video

I bought N&S over the summer, but waited until a blustery fall day to watch it...OMGosh! - I loved it!!! I've watched it again since, and wish I could stay in from all the snow today to watch it again!

I've replayed the ending for myself a few times! ;)

No one can ignore the luscious Richard as John. Hmmm the man wears a cravat so well.

Zeek said...

heh heh I just watched the entire 4 hours last night myself! It's still as delicious as the first time ...

Nalini Singh said...

Yes, another one falls! I think I'll buy this for myself as a Christmas present. MUST. HAVE. *grin*

My library is so awesome. I borrowed it over the summer. I wasn't so convinced about RH in Robin Hood (I like long hair, but not his in RH), but boy, is he an awesome leading man. I LOVED N & S.

And actually, the actress who plays Margaret is really good. I remember her from her bratty teenager role in the BBC series My Family, and I'd a never thought she'd be so good as Margaret.

Hmmm... thinking about this makes me want to watch it again. I may have to invest in my own copy. :-P

I watched it a couple of days ago again. As good and awesome as ever. :)

Lynne Connolly said...

He is awesome in the latest series of "Spooks" ("MI5" in the States)

Rats, this just reminded me that I forgot to put N&S on my Christmas list this year. Looks like I'll need to buy it myself. I haven't watched in a long time and I really feel the need to watch it again soon.

Kristie, between you, Marta Acosta,and the rest of the Crusaders, there was just no escaping the pimpage! Resistence was futile.

So, N&S went on my Christmas list and my kids and hubby came through for me. Now, all I need is time to actually WATCH it. :-(

Kristie (J) said...

Bev: I'm thinking you won't be sorry!! I watched this one again on Christmas Eve - it's been a while - and I STILL loved it :-)

Renee: It does stand the test of time;)

Lynne: I can hardly wait until I get a chance to see it!! I've read the storylines and it sound wonderful - very tortured (literally) character - and still in love with his ex-wife - yummers

Taja: *grinning* Isn't it just!!

Renee: As good as RA is as John Thornton, you're right! Daniela makes a Very Fine Margaret Hale. She just lights up so many of the scenes and I think she did a fabulous job of playing the character.

Nalini: It is grand isn't it? That train scene - watch, rewind - watch, rewind, watch - rewind - heh heh heh

Zeek: I had a friend over when I just watched it and she loved it too. We were both commenting on how sexy his voice is. Every time I see it, something else pops out at me :)

Katie: and even better does he do the 'not wearing a cravat' as in the train station scene!!

Kristin: It's wonderful that people are STILL discovering what a gem it really is! It's such a good blustery not have to work movie. Leaves you feeling all mushy inside

CJ: I know she's been wanting to watch it for a while so I was skippy happy that she did - and loved it!!

Cheers to the new Crusader!! I so need a copy of my own but I'm afraid I'd never get anything done.
