Tom in 'Strange'

Postby mikotyk on June 29th, 2010, 3:13 pm

I found some background for Tom's role in 'Strange' which was asked by Tracy as a question this month (june). Tom appeared in episode six of the BBC series, 'Strange' where he played a blind monk named Father Barnard. Tom's character discovers a locker full of human bones and an ancient tomb with the inscription, Asmoth, written upon it. Asmoth appears to spend his time gnawing upon the bones of it's victims. I guess he (Asmoth) didn't have cable television and nothing better to do?

Enjoy.
Mike

Finally saw this episode.

It is interesting whom he had appeared with here including series lead Richard Coyle (formerly Coupling created by current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat), future Primeval star Andrew-Lee Potts and the legendary Ian Richardson not to mention the very Samantha Janus.

Sounds like another winner in the wily world of Tom and his acting career! :lol: Question: How did his character know the locker was full of bones if he was blind? :shock:
