So *rubs hands with glee* I have finally been able to get my hands on Season Seven of Foyle's War, a British detective drama set during World War II. And it's brilliant! (Well, the first episode anyway :)
But...I caught myself doing something in the middle of the first episode that I have been previously unaware of doing. (I'm sure I've done it before.) See...I started telling the characters what to do. Picture this: London, June 1945. Our..hero and heroine (or the lovely young lady in the photo and the gentleman to the far right [FYI - they have a father-daughter type of relationship]) are being chased by someone with a gun. And where do they decide to go? Into a crypt! Yes! A crypt! Not towards lots of people, thus making it harder for the gunman to shot them (but I suppose also increasing the risk of collateral damage), but away from people. Towards somewhere that is just bound to have a dead end. (Which this crypt did...in more ways than one :) Hence the 'No! That way!' comments.
So, I'm curious, have you ever found yourself talking to the characters of a book or to those in a movie or TV episode and telling them what to do?
