Chasing Matthew Goode
Archive for the ‘TV Projects’ Category

A glowing review in The Times…

Oh, but hang them all — they pale into insignificance next to Matthew Goode’s deliciously reptilian Lieutenant Durrant. What a beauty of a performance. Whether hissing “confess” at Tina or doling out piping hot home truths over his breakfast grapefruit, Goode didn’t just steal every scene he was in, he convinced us that the scene belonged to him in the first place and, what’s more, he had the original receipt to prove it. How — spoiler warning — will we survive without him?

There are loads of positive reviews on-line – just a few here…

Reactions on Twitter ….

Ordeal by Innocence has been dubbed the “best show on TV” as viewers rave about the Agatha Christie adaptation following its debut episode.

The new BBC drama, which was meant to be released in December last year, is centred around the mysterious murder of Rachel Argyll (played Anna Chancellor), a rich philanthropist and mother to five adopted children.

Set at an estate on the Scottish coast, the show kicked off with her lifeless body being discovered, before quickly turning the attention to her seedy family members.

Naturally, the relatives became suspects in Rachel’s murder and viewers soon found themselves gripped as the story unfolded.

Rushing to Twitter to share their excitement about the new drama series, one user wrote: “That was bleeding brilliant.”

“Ordeal by Innocence is already the best thing on Easter television by a country mile,” another added.

A third said: “Ordeal by Innocence this is going to be my new favourite drama! So hooked first episode! Loving the cast, can’t wait for next Sunday now.”

Others shared their relief about the show finally airing, with one fan writing: “Love Ordeal by Innocent. Worth waiting for!”

“Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence @BBCOne @agathachristie bl***y brilliant! Worth waiting for,” penned another.

Meanwhile, some expressed their dismay at having to wait an entire week to watch the second episode instead of over three days this Easter holiday.

One tweeted: “It was great! Such a pity it’s not on three consecutive nights though. Don’t want to wait till next Sunday. No idea ‘whodunnit’…”

Another raged: “Absolutely FURIOUS I’ve got to wait till next week for the next Ordeal by Innocence. Perfect Easter viewing.”

Ordeal by Innocence was set for release on Boxing Day last year, but was pushed back after sexual assault allegations were made against Ed Westwick, who played Mickey Argyll.

The actor denied the claims but producers decided to reshoot scenes with replacement actor, Christian Cooke.

He stars alongside Alice Eve, Crystal Clark, Bill Nighy, Matthew Goode, Ella Purnell, Eleanor Tomlinson, Anna Chancellor, and Luke Treadaway.

Bill admitted the show would be somewhat gruesome, saying the drama series was “pretty dark”.

“There’s a degree of psychological drama going on so it’s not just about wondering, ‘Is it Mrs Whatshername in the library?’ It’s pretty dark stuff!” he told TV Times.

He added: “Revisiting the murder explodes the household. The relationships within the house are very complicated and there are some strong feelings on the loose.

“Hopefully the audience will bounce around wondering who is guilty and be completely convinced it must be him or her. Agatha Christie was very good at that.”

Ordeal By Innocence continues Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.

Matthew played the bitter, vile, Phillip Durrant with relish!  He must have really enjoyed getting his teeth into such an unpleasant character.  The reviews are all very positive and we’ll pick out a few to post later.  Don’t forget that if you are not in the UK – Amazon will be showing this mini-series soon.  A must see for Goode fans.

Meanwhile here are some pictures –

As we are giving thanks for the magic of @adiscoveryofwitchestv as we wrap the first season of shooting, we mustn’t forget the other half of our team leadership. Matthew will likely never see this as he is not a big social media person, but even in that respect he so perfectly embodies the elusive, reclusive Matthew Clairmont. And he is smart, fierce, and wicked to boot. Thank you Matthew Goode for making the dream a reality and bringing this most challenging of characters to brilliant life. ❤ you and @teresapalmer—truly my dream team. — view on Instagram
