Paging Dr. Track STAT!


Yes, he can make even a bright orange jumpsuit look sexy. Richard as Dr. Alec Track in a promo still for The Golden Hour. (screencaps courtesy of Richard Armitage Net)

It’s been a dreary, lazy Saturday here. I pulled some muscles in my chest when I inadvertently smacked into the wall between the kitchen and the dining room a couple of nights ago and said muscles didn’t decide to protest until earlier this morning. Boy, once they got started—watch out!! My eyes have, however, improved since I started using the allergy drops. So there is good news, too.

Speaking of health issues and good news, let’s talk about about a certain handsome physician called Dr. Alec Track from Richard’s first starring role after N&S, “The Golden Hour.”

Never has a neon orange jumpsuit looked so darned appealing. The white T-shirt that cunningly bares his shapely biceps is very fetching, too.

Dr. Track is not just a looker; he’s dedicated and caring with a wonderful bedside manner. You know you are in good hands—literally and figuratively—if Dr. Track arrives on his helicopter to look after you.

Call Patrick Dempsey’s character in Grey’s Anatomy Dr. McDreamy if you will; but my money is on Dr. Track—the original Dr. McDreamy.

  1. Oh dear angie, you certainly are having what we call in our family “a rough trot.” Hopefully things are improving, with a little Armitage theRApy of course!
    Gorgeous face aside, whenever I see Dr Track in his snug white tee shirt, I am mesmerized anew by those arms, especially the biceps…*sigh*…I turn to mush inside. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the hair on his forearms begs to be stroked…*sighs again*

    • Cheers, thanks, Mezz. Armitage TheRApy is always helpful, whether to put a smile on my face or make me forget about some of the pain.

      He does an awful lot for a plain white T-shirt, doesn’t he? *thud* His hair looks as if it would be really soft . . . take note of the next post with that nice photo of Richard with his forearms bared. I love the man’s limbs. Those arms and legs that probably seemed far too long and ungainly at 14 certainlly turned out very nicely. *sigh*
      He truly transformed into a beautiful swan.

      • He is certainly one well put-together man, and getting more beautiful with every year; I fear for my future sanity (tongue firmly in cheek) if he keeps it up! 😉

        • He could be an artist’s model . . . except I am not sure I would ever get the drawing finished. I would be too busy trying to not drool on the paper. 😉

          He does get more attractive with each passing year. I sometimes wonder if he has a portait in his attic a la Dorian Gray! 😉

  2. You already know how I feel about Dr. Track. *sigh* I love that Richard trained with the real HEMS people so he’d get it right. And no one has any right to look that good in “international orange”! It has been perhaps half a century since anyone has done anywhere near that much for a plain white T-shirt.

    • We are in agreement there. He’s come to visit in Sloth Fiction, too. His training shows once again how dedicated he is to getting each role right.

      I am thinking Marlon Brando might be the guy who last gave the plain white T-shirt such a big boost. And for me, even the young Brando pales in comparison with Richard. Not that I am partial or anything. Wait, what’s the name of this blog again? 😉

  3. I like Patrick Dempsey, I really do (can’t say the same about Grey’s Anatomy.. I think the writers of that show are/were horrible, I mean WHY do the characters have to repeat everything they say ALL the time???), but he can’t hold a candle to Richard IMO! And I agree with you Mezz and Angie, that RA’s getting better with each passing year! 🙂

    • I like Patrick too, and when he was much younger he was downright geeky–he has “handsomed” up a lot. I have never gotten into watching Grey’s Anatomy.
      Richard is like a fine wine, isn’t he?
