Just knocking off a quickie for this month's edition of Fanficcer's Friend. In case you haven't been following this new feature at Inner Toob, I offer up a picture from a movie or some other source outside of Television for writers of fan fiction to use as inspiration for their projects.
This month, is a screen capture from a horrible movie with a fantastic cast, "Parting Shots". Felicity Kendal played one of the main roles and Joanna Lumley was a featured guest star. There were plenty of great actors in these featured spotlights - Diana Rigg, John Cleese, Ben Kingsley, Bob Hoskins - and the other main players were Oliver Reed and Peter Davison. But the main actor, Chris Rea, was like a living black hole and his lack of talent drains the movie of its energy. (I understand he was a musician, not an actor.)

At any rate, here's Felicity and Joanna together in a scene. Transferring these great actresses into Toobworld, this could be a picture of Barbara Good from 'Good Neighbors' meeting the 'Absolutely Fabulous' Patsy Stone in a pub, or Rosemary Boxer of 'Rosemary & Thyme' questioning Purdey from 'The New Avengers'. Or the combination could be remixed.

Have fun!
