Starting at 10pm, you can see Damian O’Hare as Declan Toole in “The Search”, the Hell on Wheels episode where everybody is looking for Eva’s baby, in all the wrong places. CSI HOW, of sorts.

Damian O’Hare in Hell on Wheels and The Royal

Not at the same time, though that would make a fun episode.

ITV4 has picked up “Hell on Wheels” and is currently running the first series of the show on 10pm on Tuesdays. This is the perfect way to catch up with the story until the start of series three, which will premier on AMC on Saturday, August 10, 9|8c. It’s a rather darkish Western Drama and far more realistic than what’s usually running under that label. I’m not much of a Western fan myself, but if you enjoy that genre or gritty history drama, I can really recommend the show. Good story, solid acting, high standard of production.

And yes, Damian O’Hare will be on the show. I know he isn’t listed anywhere. I didn’t make it up, just give it time. I’m sure we’ll get an update, latest for the premiere of season 4. 5. Whatever.

ITV4 will rerun series 7 of The Royal starting on 12th July, 2.45pm. Don’t miss Damian O’Hare as Dr Nick Burnett, saving Brownies, lost kittens and girls in bikinis nurses in distress!

I made a mistake when I last updated the calendar and put this under the wrong date. Sorry about that, the episode is on tonight.

More “Taking the Flak” Reviews / TV Tip

“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.
