Murder, She Wrote: A Waitress To Die For

Finally! It’s been a long time coming.

The BBC have been showing the TV series Murder, She Wrote for quite a while now and they are, at last, approaching the end of season 12.  Why is this important to us?  Episode 22, titled What You Don’t Know Can Kill You, sees Kathryn get an acting credit.

First broadcast in May of 1996 in the USA, over 13 years ago now, it is one of Kathryn’s earlier small screen appearances.  The part, credited only as Doreen the Waitress, is likely to be very small.  Of course Kathryn later crossed paths with Angela Lansbury again in one of the Murder, She Wrote TV movies that followed the end of the TV series.  A Story To Die For (which crops up occasionally on ITV) saw Kathryn in a far more substantial role as the personal assistant of one of the main protagonists.

I’ve been tracking the progress of the show on BBC2 for nearly a year now having noticed it was getting regular showings (normally once a day, five days a week), and that they were progressing through the various seasons in order.  I predicted that the one episode I actually wanted to see would be broadcast around this time.  It was looking tantalisingly close a month ago but various horses races and tennis championships, including the Wimbledon fortnight, got in the way.  Well now it is in the schedules to be shown in a couple of weeks time.

Make a note of this date: Wednesday, 15th July 2009.

Make a note of this time:  3pm.

Make a note of this channel:  BBC2.

Details can be found here on the RadioTimes website.

Look out for a reminder nearer the time, and a post and Gallery update shortly afterwards 😉

KM UK Exclusive! Yet Still More Pensacola Screencaps & Videos

Nearly there.  Three more episodes (ep17-19) worth of screencaps and videos of Kathryn as Lt. Annalisa “Stinger” Lindstrom have been added to the Pensacola: Wings Of Gold gallery.

Annalisa’s “will they won’t they” relationship with A.J. is really building.  Lots of great smiles and in echo of the recent Stealing Home episode of Cold Case we get Kathryn playing baseball.

Please do leave comments, here and in the Gallery (images can be rated too), it would be good to hear some thoughts on how this new site is going.

AOAHSP – “Coming Soon”

posterI’ve seen reports of an Assassination Of A High School President preview trailer appearing on some recent US DVD releases.  So far Powder Blue and What Goes Up (a Sony Pictures release, as AOAHSP is likely to be) have been mentioned.  Neither, apparently, gave an actual release date for the film, just a “Coming Soon” message.

It may not be definitive proof, but it does at least suggest that the intention is to release AOAHSP on DVD in the near future.

In case you needed reminding Kathryn has a small role in AOAHSP playing Nurse Platt.

Images and a video clip from the movie can be found in the Gallery.

If The Rains… Update

A quick update to the piece posted previously.

Ben Patrick Johnson, author of the new novel If The Rains Don’t Cleanse, posted the following comment against the YouTube version of the audio excerpt recorded by Kathryn.

benpatrickjohnson:

Kathryn was a DREAM to work with.

Believe it or not we had just one hour to record this … she got the character quickly — Eva is in her blood, so to speak.

The book was inspired by my real family history. The character Kathryn is reading is my mother! It was surreal getting to direct Kathryn playing my own mom, let me tell you! :-)

If the book sells well, maybe we can get Kathryn to read the whole novel for audiobook! Nothing would make me happier.

Hope you enjoy the novel.

Ben is clearly a fan, and why wouldn’t he be?  Let’s hope that there is enough interest in Kathryn doing this for it to become a reality.  I certainly like the idea of Kathryn reading a book to me in that accent, or any accent :-)

If The Rains… KM Book Excerpt Reading

If The Rains Dont Cleanse book cover

Author, activist, commentator, model, narrator, voiceover artist.  What doesn’t Ben Patrick Johnson do?

If The Rains Don’t Cleanse is Johnson’s latest novel, it tells the story of missionary schoolteachers and their families in the 1950s Belgian Congo.  Principal character Eva Dunagan is based on Johnson’s mother Ava, the story is based on her experiences.

Ben details in the 26 May 2009 entry of his MySpace blog that Kathryn recorded this excerpt in the week before the Memorial Day weekend. The implication is that just this 10 minute section was recorded, so hold off on any thoughts that Kathryn has recorded the whole audiobook. I’ve found no evidence of an audiobook recording being made available in the future. Perhaps if you let the author and publisher know you really like the excerpt they will get Kathryn to do it.

You can listen to the 10 minute excerpt on Johnson’s MySpace blog, on YouTube or in the Gallery.  The book’s official website can be found here.  You can buy the book here at Amazon UK or US, and I’m sure all good retailers.

Thanks to silversideup @ Look Again for the heads-up.
