    He was also excellent as Archie Kennedy in A&E’s Horatio Hornblower series. Don’t forget to mention that!

  2. Heidi says:

    Can’t wait to see Jamie back on American TV!

  3. Rachel says:

    Great to see him guesting as always, but someone give Bamber a lead soon please?! He was devastating in The Smoke, which hopefully will see the light of day in the U.S. eventually.

    I cannot wait for the Bamber thread to start. Rizzoli is only 3 months pregnant and we are
    already bored to tears. Why in the world to writers have to write a baby into a detective
    show; we are already fed up to the ears with SO MUCH of Mother Rizzoli – now we have
    six months of cooing and aahhing of this irrelevant pregnancy . UGH. Mine were interesting
    to me and my husband, only.

    Bring on Bamber – ASAP – he is teriffic !

    • Zeph says:

      Because they’re being faithful to the books and in the books Rizzoli gets pregnant….

      • Scamp says:

        No, the previous showrunner left a cliffhanger or two for season 5, one being Jane’s pregnancy. The show was initially inspired by the books but is in it own world now.

  5. cherie says:

    unfortunately what may work in a book often does not work on a TV show –
    pregnancies are BOOORRRIINNG unless they are your own ! – – -and even then !

  6. Julie Deeds says:

    Great actor in a great show! He’d be perfect in the new show Reckless. So many great actors in that show!

  7. I wouldn’t be too concerned about Jane’s pregnancy. on “Rizzoli & Isles. “I’ve read some upcoming episode synopses and they are very interesting.
