Unfortunately, the series was dropped after season 1, according to several articles that quote Sam West's tweet on the subject.

“Alas there will be no more Eternal Law,” he confirmed.

“Not enough people watched it. A thousand thanks to those of you who did, and said such kind things.”

I am not sure whether or not emailing ITV about this would help, but I plan on asking them (v. v. nicely) to see whether or not anything could be done about bringing the show back. viewerservices@itv.com, or alternatively http://www.itv.com/contactus/wheretofindus/default.html

I'm not sure how long this will be up before ITV catches on and asks them to remove the video but for now episode 5 is up on youtube. Enjoy!

Hello again!

Bit of news from me this time, although people potentially already know! Tobias is currently appearing in The Recruiting Officer at the Donmar Warehouse in London, the play runs until the 14th of April and details (along with some fetching photos of our boy in uniform) can be found here:

The play also features Mackenzie Crook (the one with the wooden eye in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies) and Mark Gatiss (part of that wonderful but evil team behind Dr Who and Sherlock, for anyone not submerged in the BBC fangirl world). Being the Donmar I can imagine this will be a stellar play, and the venue is wonderfully intimate so performances are often aided by that. I've already requested a ticket for my birthday, so fingers crossed! 

Anyone else think they'll be able to see it?

Hello! I've been lurking about here for a few weeks and I'm not sure how much this LJ is frequented, but I thought I would share some goodies I've come across featuring our dear Mr Menzies as that devilishly handsome Richard Pembroke from Eternal Law (most of which is still airing on the ITV Player for anyone in the UK who might have missed it).

All of these are courtesy of "solidmercury" over at Tumblr -

And just for good measure, an on-camera stare from episode 2 -same one where his oh-so-evil fallen angel character pushed a blind beggar into the river. I wish I were making that up, but that's what the writers decided would make for a good conclusion to that episode. Hrumph.



Sometimes dodgy writing aside (this coming from someone who was a fan of Graham and Pharoah for Life on Mars), Tobias is getting plenty of rave reviews for his portrayal of Ricard Pembroke. Yes, the "amoral, ruthless, charming, psychopathic, alcoholic, womanizing servant of beelzebub" from his press interview is now a qualified scene-stealer. Surprised? Not us, but it's good to know critics caught on -finally:)!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2012/jan/05/wonderland-tv-review?newsfeed=true There are some nice performances – most notably from Tobias Menzies who is some kind of bad demon-prosecutor.

http://www.sfx.co.uk/2012/01/07/eternal-law-episode-1-tv-review/ Tobias Menzies as Richard gets some of the best lines and steals scenes from the rest of the cast in the way only a good baddie can.

http://www.theyorker.co.uk/news/tv/8307 As fallen angel Richard, Tobias Menzies was easily one of the best things about this episode, all suave charm and barely hidden menace.

Since this is the first time I'm posting an entry, I'm hoping it won't create any formatting issues. They're not the highest resolution, but they should give you a good idea of what the series -and Tobias' character are like.





More pics after the jumpCollapse )

Just saw an Eternal Law trailer on ITV! What a nice surprise to have Tobias on my telly.

I just checked and discovered that there is a longer trailer available on ITV's Eternal Law page - no idea if it's viewable outside of the UK but it does have a good bit of Tobias in it!

It also lets us know the airdate: first episode will air on Thursday at 9pm.

Do tune in if you can, I know I will. (:
 
 
Howdy Menziacs! Just in time for the holidays we've got some picspam from Tobs' excellent film appearance in Anton Chekhov's The Duel. Not all of it because he gets such vast quantities of screen time the only way to do it all justice is to split it up a bit!

I'm sure you're all very excited. I know I am, especially given my affinity for hilarious pictures of Mr. Menzies stuffing food in his face. Do you have any idea how much eating goes on in this movie? It's slightly obscene! (Not even kidding...check out those last few images in the picspam if you don't believe me)

A little Menzies-based merriment to stuff your stocking.Collapse )

And thus concludes The Duel part 1! More soon. Stay tuned, kids...same banana time, same banana channel!
