    Two tallents, two great actors, two great men and two great poofs.

    Go on boys…time yet. Love to see you both happy and content.

    You know we would line The Mall and wave for two great Queens and probably Her Mag would as well.

    London needs something to celebrate next year you know!

  2. i liked the two characters and the concept but the writing was ungodly awful. not at all funny. not even in the ball park. anybody can camp. they weren’t really earning their pay.

  3. Well, I think he must have been jealous, because Jacobi is so much better an actor than McKellan. His performances of Hamlet and Cyrano are two of the greatest performance ever filmed.

    He might be a jobbing actor following the work but the show is bloody awful.

    What a silly self regarding man.

  6. Personally, I found this show hilarious, and pure joy to watch! Definitely brightened up my Monday nights, leaving me with tears of laughter for the few weeks it was on.

    Lovely to see the two most fantastic of actors working along side each other. A great show and I can’t wait for it’s return to the screen.

    This is a great show – and a very point-in-time show, too. I think younger people will, of course make sense out of it – but the sense they make out of it will not match what older gay men understand about these two.

    What is historical information for younger people is memory for us older gay men, and reading gay history will never capture what actually happened in the past, and what it meant to the participants.

    If you see this only through early 21st century assumptions about life, you will miss a lot of what’s happening, and will miss a lot of the humor.

    I loved every episode of Vicious and can’t wait for a new series plus Frances De la Tour makes a great “fag hag”.[51 year old female]
