Sorry, Mr. Bond. Nobody does it better than Lucas (and RA)


Like everyone else, I found the Bond/Queen Elizabeth scene filmed for last night’s Olympic opening ceremonies absolutely delightful. Your Majesty, I love a monarch with a sense of humor and I admire you more than ever.  However, like others I couldn’t help but wish you’d had a different escort, one who is even more attractive in a tuxedo than your Mr. Bond.

He’s in Your Majesty’s Secret Service, too, and dedicated to Queen and Country (don’t believe all that John Bateman hooey).  He’s clever, resourceful, he’s quick on his feet, and, oh yes–bloody gorgeous.

And frankly, nobody does it better.

And if you need any more proof to his desirability as an escort, well, here goes . . . and this one might make you want to put on your boogie shoes, ma’am.

  1. What a way to get my Saturday going and to set my pulses racing!! Two of my favourite Lucas videos of yours Angie so thank you for reminding me of them! Yes he simply is THE best! I’ll never tire of looking at him in all his blue-hued glory!! šŸ™‚ Oh the sight of him, whether in pea-coat, blue or olive sweaters with the ever-present snug jeans; in a nicely tailored suit – or out of it as the case may be šŸ˜‰ is enough to make a girl weak at the knees! šŸ™‚ I’m SO thankful that I have DVD’s of all the Spooks series so if I suffer from Lucas withdrawal symptoms I can pop in a disk and watch him to my heart’s content!! You’re right – he is SND!!!

    • After seeing last night’s events, I could only think of how good Mr. A would have looked in a tux alongside the Queen. I am glad you enjoyed the stroll down Memory Lane. šŸ˜‰ Lucas was, for me, gorgeous in all his phases, from disheveled, fresh from prison Lucas in his tatty jumper and track pants, to Pete the Banker and yes, wearing nothing but a set of pretty blue sheets. šŸ˜‰

  2. I had to record the Olympic Opening Ceremony as I was out for most of the day, but this afternoon I settled down to watch. I have to say I thought the whole thing was spectacular and beautifully done from start to finish! šŸ™‚ But I’m with you, Mr. A would have looked stunning in a tux with the Queen! šŸ˜‰ Who knows he may get an award of some kind in the future and we will see him being presented to her!! Wouldn’t you just love to see that? I live in hope!! šŸ˜€

    All these wonderful views of London just made me think how much of it we’ve seen in Spooks and made me love the city even more and all because of . . . . . . . yes, you guessed it . . . . . .our gorgeous, talented, luscious (you know all the superlatives) Lucas. I can’t see pictures of London without thinking of him. Somehow London and Lucas have become synonymous to me!! šŸ˜‰ I found myself yelling not only for the Canadian and British athletes but also for the NZ contingent when they came into the stadium and again you will guess why!!

  3. Ah. The Queen meets Bond scenario must have happened while the signal from my satellite dish was down, so I completely missed the whole thing. I spoke to our English IT guy this morning and he said that it was the best part of the entire opening ceremony. He also thought Sir Paul was “rubbish” (his word, not mine)…
