Ok who hasn't seen this, and if not why not?? (Search Amazon for Death on The Nile to find a copy)

It's brilliant - Simon is fantastic, and rather cute. You've got to love a 25(ish) year old Simon, longish brown hair, blue eyes, and DIMPLES when he smiles! :oops:

Also it's interesting to pick up on mannerisms and habits of how he does things, (like saying 'What?' the same way then and again in Casualty - does anyone know what I'm talking about here? or is it just me again?)

Favourite bits, hmm, probably the end bit when he's 'found out', cos his charater starts to get's a little cocky before he's caught.

Will come back when I think of more

I was so shocked at how star studded this is when I first saw it!

Simon's awesome, he's so adorable!

And yes, if you have not seen it, why not??!!?!?! No excuses people!

I only watched it because Shelli prodded me when it was on a random freeview channel agesssssssssss ago. I'm glad she did! It was really good.

I should watch it again, though, I can't remember much of it lol x

Yeah it's HUGE, and considering how young and 'inexperienced' he was at the time - it doesnt show at all he's as capable as the rest of the cast who most would have had at least 10 years experience on him, thing the average would have been 20 years, I think that says a lot for Simon's ability.

I think he tends to 'down play' things - some people tend to do things OTT, Simon is generally more subtle (expect in Sword and Sorcerer where he's a little OTT, I don't think he's OTT in Sleuth either, which I he could have done)

People should watch it over this long weekend

Mine's a short weekend, work on Sunday, Birthday on Monday. :D :D :D

But yeah, I think it was a fantastic place for Simon to sort of start his career from.

I LOVE Death on the Nile!! :wub: It's the film that got me hooked on Simon, and yes, the blue eyes and dimples - and the hair - all had something to do with it. I also love the music, especially the big juicy love theme (when they are at the pyramids). It was on twice last August bank holiday weekend - watched both, then bought the DVD and have watched it loads. I can iron for hours if I'm watching this film!! - and of course, if it's on DVD, who says you have to stop at once??!! :P And yes, it is an amazing film to start a career.

Yeah I like Death on the Nile, was a great place for Simon to start really, wasn't it his first major film? Haha, the blood makes me laugh though, verrrrry red. I watched it with my mum and her boyfriend the other night when he came over, and they were both like Oh! look who that is, it's such a body, that they knew (not personally) from waaay back in the day but I hadn't a clue who they were, but must of been famous then, big names. I think though it does start to drag as it gets closer to the end and could do with a little faster pace, but Simon's in it so can't complain!! :)

The film has a fantastic class of cast but I must admit to it not being one of my preferred Simon career projects, I do fully appreciate that goes against the general consensus of opinion. It was an amazing start off point for his professional aspirations and, as a 25 year old in 1978, to star along side Bette Davis, Maggie Smith & Angela Lansbury etc must've gave him massive confidence in himself.

That smile (and dimples) and those eyes do look amazing, I'm glad to see those qualities havent' changed in 30 years.

This film remains one of my all-time favorites of Simon's roles. The entire cast was wonderful. I loved the material (Agatha Christie plot with a script written by Anthony Shaffer???) and Simon did an excellent job portraying an utterly charming rascal.

I thought it looked familiar! :oops:

Looking at those mischievous sparkling blue eyes, I can easily believe that Simon is a rascal -- but not as big a rascal as Simon Doyle, thankfully!

I found an interactive game - only played a demo so didn't get too far

But I have to complain as the character didn't look anything like Simon :(

Actually none of the characters looked like the film of TV versions of them - would of had more fun if he actually looked like 'our' Simon :roll:

This film is on over the festive period on UK terrestrial tv for anyone who hasn't seen it, I believe about December 30th. You just have to check your regional tv schedule.
