SMCFP 10th Birthday



6680_Simon_MacCorkingdale

In a couple of weeks The Simon MacCorkindale Fan Page celebrates its 10th birthday, now I don’t have much new to offer, however, I thought it would be good to do a bit of a retrospective of Simon’s career.

So starting the 17th of April we will look at what Simon has done on that day in previous years. This will cover almost everything Simon has been in however there are something’s I’ve not been able to find a date for.

So for our 10th Birthday I’m (hopefully) bringing you a year of Simon, this will be a challenge for me as well so hopefully I can live up to it.

Please see our Twitter and Facebook pages to keep up with the posts as we go through each day, and you will shortly be able to see all the years posts here.

What our year will look like, click for a bigger image.  Some very full days and some empty ones:

Series: New Tricks
Episode: S7Ep5 – Good Morning Lemmings
First Aired: 8 October 2010

Description: Brenda and the team reopen the investigation into the murder of graffiti artist Danny Tyler who died from a head trauma caused by a blunt instrument.

Tyler had acquired a level of fame and his work is now quite valuable. They have CCTV footage of the latest graffiti artist but the person can’t really be identified. There was clearly friction among the taggers in Tyler’s clique, not the least of which due to his rising fame and they were also involved in a string of ATM robberies. When the ‘I Killed Flak’ graffiti is shown to be a publicity stunt, they look at an art patron as a possible suspect. Meanwhile, Brian has taken to using Twitter with the user-name topcop999 but his fascination with it results in him becoming sloppy in his daily work.
