I could have sworn there was a thread in here which asked the question, "If they were to render Flashman on either big or small screen, who should play him?" But bollixed if I can find it. I started reading them at Christmas (sadly days before GMF popped his DMS) and this question has continuously bothered me. I have always thought that (when I get there) Stephen Fry could model the older Flashman. Last neet, Wor Lass caught up with some episodes of Upstairs, Downstairs she is currently lifting from dark o'clock TV. I couldn't help but notice John Alderton playing a servant in some capacity or other, with long sideburns and tache and thought that physically he fitted the bill. His attempt at an accent was so poor I never worked out whether he was meant to be Irish, Sweaty or Sheepshagger, as he used all three accents in consecutive sentences. But he could probably do cavalry officer very well. Shame he must be even older than Stephen Fry. The floor is open.
