George Adams hinted on Facebook that 2018 may be the year of the TDBM Book. If there is a book what would you like to see as a plot line? Maybe Murder on the Honeymoon Express? Lucien Blake - The Spy Who Loves Jean? Suggest some titles and share some details!

Because this is Valentine’s week, I thought it would be fun to discuss Lucien and Jean’s romance – as if we need an excuse! I was thinking about all the times Lucien and Jean choose to stay – to stick it out and make their relationship work. For me, it started with Episode 1.2 when Jean applies for a job with the Royal Cross Hotel. After pretending to be indifferent and saying it is her business, Lucien asks her to remain in the house even if she gets the job. He wants her to help him - a blind eye, a good talking to from time to tiime. She agrees. At the end, when she tells him she doesn’t expect to get the job, he tears up and says he's rather glad. What times do you remember when they choose to stay?

One of the things that hooked me on TDBM was how tightly scripted the episodes are - not a wasted word or action. The flip side is that sometimes we're left wanting a bit more. For example, in ep. 5.7 Jean was upset with Lucien, but in ep. 5.8 she has forgiven him. What happened? We may have a clue in the Season 5, ep. 7 & 8 bloopers on you tube. There's a scene where Lucien and Jean are holding hands in his study. She hands him Munro's notebook and tells him that everyone deserves a second chance. That scene never made the final cut. If you'd like to see it, here's the youtube link:
What's your "missing scene"? (I have the feeling "Adelaide" may be mentioned. :)
