Blast from the Past: Damian O’Hare in “The Royal”

Posted in the royal, tv with tags , , , , on 3 February, 2012 by ambarussa

It’s been a while, but many of you certainly remember Damian O’Hare as Dr. Nick Burnett in “The Royal”. Not an episode went by without him rescuing kittens, Brownies or little old ladies, performing the Heimlich maneuver or smooching the nurse.

One dedicated “Royalist” has sent me the link to some promo shots and a series of pictures taken on the set of  “The Royal” in 2008 during the filming of Damian’s first episode, “Against All Odds”. The pictures are tiny, but you can still tell that it must have been very wet and very cold.



TV: “Foyle’s War – Among The Few” repeat on ITV3

Posted in tv with tags , , , , on 10 October, 2011 by ambarussa

Here’s your chance to catch one of Damian O’Hare’s early TV appearances!

ITV3 will repeat the episode “Among The Few” of “Foyle’s War” on Saturday, 22 October, 9pm.

Damian O'Hare as Sean Halloran and Lisa Kay as Connie Dewar in "Foyle's War - Among The Few"

Foyle uncovers a black market gasoline racket. Two of the girls working at the local depot are seeing Andrew and his best friend from the unit. Sam goes undercover at the depot, but when one of the girls is found murdered, Andrew becomes a suspect.

Damian plays “Sean O’Halloran, an Irish fuel worker who tries to charm all the ladies but has a darker, more dangerous edge. He would think nothing of roughing up a woman to get what he wanted. Suspected IRA links but thankfully his bomb making skills this time are about as successful as his charm.”

While I sit here waiting for the results of “Spray-on Snow Frost” on the windows of my living room (so far, they look as if they were covered in hairspray, but I haven’t given up hope yet), I might as well remind you that

the deadline for the

You still have the chance to win an original autograph of Damian O’Hare and a selection of chocolate.

More “Taking the Flak” Reviews / TV Tip

Posted in festivals, reviews, taking the flak, the royal, theatre, tv with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 12 July, 2009 by ambarussa


“Taking the Flak” seems to be the BBC’s residential Marmite: love it or hate it. For the audience, looking at the conflicting reviews can be confusing:

John Preston, for example, really, really hates the show:

“(…) As well as being unfunny in a kind of sky-darkening way, it’s eerily unlikeable. (…)”

War reporter John Simpson, on the other hand, really, really loves it – in the same paper:

“(…) Good comedy is always sharp and painful, and this is television comedy at its best. (…)”

“(…) I couldn’t fault this comedy. Indeed, it was the best satire on journalism since Drop The Dead Donkey and the first time the BBC has been truly honest about the way news is put together. (…)”

“(…) A highly promising beginning… (…)”

“(…) What this should have been was hard satire. What it was was racist farce. (…)”


Tonight we’ll see if there’s any reason to continue watching The Royal, or if Nick and Marian have been written out of the show. I’ll keep you posted. No Damian, no screencaps, though.


Ultimate Force: “Killing of a one-eyed Bookie”

ITV4 will air one of Damian’s earliest and still finest performances on the small screen. Make sure to catch him as Sean Weir in “Killing of a One-Eyed Bookie” (2002) on Tuesday, 14 July, 9pm.

I’m a carnivore myself, but the cheap shots at vegetarians and vegans are beginning to grate on my nerves. Harharhar healthy food is icky, and sitar music in the background, so original and witty. I suppose the authors have never been to Tibits on Heddon Street in London. They should.
