Masterpiece Theatre redux

When I was a kid, one of the few tv shows we watched was Masterpiece Theatre. Recently I've discovered how much fun it is to go back and watch those old series again, trying to spot later-famous people. Until tonight, my best "Aha!" moment had been the discovery that the villainous Sejanus from I, Claudius was Patrick Stewart (with hair!). Thanks to years of STNG this scene, which did very little for me at age 11, now gives me a serious "hubba hubba!" moment.

However, I think I've topped that. Tonight I was watching the first episode of Lillie, about Lillie Langtry, and I discovered that her brother William Le Breton is Rupert Giles!! Here he is at first (such a baby-face!), and here he is with a mustache (shudder!). The funny thing is, I don't know if I would have spotted it but Spouse was sitting in the other room and shouted, "Hey, that's Giles!" just based on his voice, heh heh.

So yeah, that's my idea of fun on a Monday night :)
