TX: BBC TWO Tuesday 13th April 2004 The story of the early years of world-renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, is to be made into a one-off drama for BBC Two. Written by Peter Moffatt (Cambridge Spies), Hawking stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the young Stephen Hawking who, as a bright and ambitious PHD student at Cambridge University, is diagnosed with the debilitating motor neurone disease and given two years to live. Against the odds, he goes on to achieve worldwide acclaim and success, in particular with his astounding book A Brief History Of Time.
Dedicated to my idee fixe, London, and to all the characters created by Benedict Cumberbatch.
This work is a crazy attempt to unite two objects that are the sources of author`s inspiration. It is an extremely surrealistic endeavour to compare with and combine place and person. It was created in three nights and is an embodiment of all the children of Echidna and Typhon.
The essence of every character is the person and yet, we are capable to see only the magnificence of your works, thank you, Mr. C for such an infinite universe of diversity and inspiration.
If only hot water could wash away the sins,
as well as it washes away the blood.
TELL ME WHY THIS EXISTS OTHER THAN TO HAUNT ME
I MEAN, JESUS CHRIST, SCULPTORS
THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING
I’m pretty sure they’ve created the most terrifying Doctor Who reference ever.
Count the shadows and whatever you do, don’t blink.
Someone calls the doctor…the winchesters…someone!
I do believe that the original picture is supposed to be of Hel from Norse mythology. She was half woman half skeleton/corpse. o-o
and, if someone’s interested, she was Loki’s daughter
God damn it, Loki. Keep it in your pants.
No, the writers did not pull that name out of thin air but rather from a pastiche biography of Sherlock Holmes by William S. Baring-Gould.
