The Great Global Pros Watch: Foxhole on the Roof
The Lads are back for more squeeing and general lusting from us. ;)


* So this senior criminal gets out of jail and decides to really show them all.
* OOh! Doyle's wearing his read plaid scarf, but the hair is too tame.
* He sighs when Bodie tells him that a lot of weaponry is out on the streets again.
* The old crim and his young partner are dragging the guns and ammo up some stairs
and are sussed out by a young couple who don't want to spring for a hotel room.
* Hmmm. Box of grenades.
* Doyle looks quite dorky as he listens to music. :)
* Hee! Bodie calls him Ace.
* Doyle want to storm the roof; Bodie and Cowley want more information.
* Nice interplay as they run up the steps:
DOYLE: You out of condition?
BODIE: Have sense. There's a guy up there and we don't want to be breathless,do we?
* Cut to a hospital room with a doctor and nurse.
* The Lads are ready to shoot at the door when fire starts from the roof. What
creeps they are to shoot at a hospital!
* With all the broken glass and all, it is a miracle that the patients weren't
killed.
* Cowley's speech to the patients doesn't work for me. Get them all doing
something? They are barely conscious!
* Yay for Bodie shouting warnings about the grenades.
* Bodie looks good except for the grey jacket.
* He's got them by the short and curlies. Hee! The imagery!
* Bodie and Murphy have radar going for them as they walk out of Cowley's briefing.
* Nice little conversation between Bodie and Murphy. Doyle should be very jealous!
* Now for the Benny Hill skit! Kiss kiss.
* Okay, were these two cellmates in prison? lol
* Back to Bodie and Murph: Watch where you put those hands!
* Back to the climb up the phallic symbol tower.
* I'm starting to be annoyed that Cowley is monopolizing Doyle.
* Has Cowley noticed two of his men have been missing for a while.
* Bodie smiles all the way up the tower. ;)
* Doyle breaks in to Paul Stacy's house. Big shouting match ensues.
* Ooh! Tower Bridge!!
* Why is Bodie so far down on the tower?
* Bodie has made it to the top of the tower with Murphy.
* They've got the money. Murphy is not a very good shot.
* Bodie is ever the renegade, but he drops his rifle.
* Doyle's bum still looks cute in those jeans. 8-D The jeans are at least a size
too large.
* Poor Murphy! Ouch!
* LOL at Cowley asking the crim where he will be going once he's in the car!
* Doyle is off by himself solving this one.
* Why does the guy keep changing his clothes? Get in drag and stay that way!
* Tower Bridge again. :)
* Bodie shoots the fake girl.
* The crim commits suicide rather than be caught.
* Bodie looks very well-padded in the final scene on the roof. Was Doyle's comment
about his condition a jab about weight gain? Hmmm...

While I enjoyed many bits and pieces of this one, I really missed having the lads together.

I'm afraid I find this a boring episode. As with all eps, there are some great B&D scenes, but all in all, not one I run to when I want a fix.

I know! This is not a good ep for the first one in the new year. :(

Great summary, I laughed out loud.

Has Cowley noticed two of his men have been missing for a while?

Just one of many plot holes. But I still liked this, lots of suspense and action. And Murphy! Doyle looks tired but the jeans are wonderful.

And the panoramic views of Tower Bridge just for you!

Great icon! I'm glad I made you laugh. :)

I was torn between wanting to see Bodie and Doyle together and really enjoying the scenes with Bodie and Murph.

Oh, not the same without the lads working together - Doyle looked tired and alone... Stoopid Murphy... *g*

Doyle did look tired, but you grabbed some great caps of him. :)

Thanks for your lovely review!

Agree with Kat, this is *not* an episode to run to for a Lads-Fix. And it could've been, because the plot's blistering..

There are times when I wonder about the plan. I really want to see the lads together, but they are separated way too often. :(

Definitely not one of my fav episode. Maybe saw it twice. I think it's quite boring and as you said not enough B/D togetherness. I like the scene when they shoot a the look in tandem, Bodie and Murph on the chimney and the last one. It looks like Doyle shivers slightly before stepping up to his Bodie to get warm again *BG* And the zoom out is rather nicely done. Otherwise - boooring!

I think this was only the second time I have watched this, and it still annoys the heck out of me.
Hardly any "lads together" and I don't get why Bodie thought it was a good idea to talk Murphy into the climb without letting anyone in on the plan. It might have worked if Cowley had known and they could have coordinated a distraction. Or if Bodie had listened to Murphy and had tried the shot himself.
Cowley was a nervous wreck throughout and I can't believe he wouldn't have missed two of his agents for all that time.

Doyle had his wits together and saved the day, but he had to do it all alone. No partner to back him up.

I love reading all your points. Not a favourite because of the Lads not being together very much. Doyle used his brains to get to the crux of the matter, while Bodie used his brawn to get a pot shot at the baddies.

I love reading all your points Thank you!

Yes, it was a brain versus brawn ep. I would have prefered the lads have a chance to communicate and at least argue over which method is best.

Sometimes I have to search for the parts I really like. I fear we've already seen my Top 10 eps, but I will find as many of the moments I can find in the rest. :)

Ooh, which would be your top 10? Just wondering, because I'm always interested in which handful of eps people think are the best/slashiest :)

And thanks for the review! Pity there's so little of them together :(

I like this epsiode, but the lads aren't together enough. The Bodie/Murphyness is good, but it doesn't quite make up for it. I do like their individual approaches to the case though *g*

Hee! Bodie calls him Ace.

I love this too!

Cowley's speech in the hospital really annoyed me, and the fact that the lads weren't exactly together in this episode didn't help much either. Though I did enjoy seeing how the two of them operated differently when apart. And yes - Bodie does look a little padded, doesn't he? Too many swiss rolls and bacon sarnies, methinks! *g*

Thanks for this!

Erm... Isn't Doyle nearly always dorky listening to music? *g*

Well you definitely hit the most significant two points for me... the Benny Hill skit and the phallic symbol. *eg*

It's not a very satisfactory episode and it is... odd. Murphy almost seems to be crushing on Bodie... O no you're the best shot, all right I'll climb it 'cos it's you... no wonder some ff writers have dragged him in to the slashing. *g*

Thanks Petal. ♥

Yes! But he's much better if the music is classical. (I won't even go into DiaG!)

The Bodie/Murphy stuff has fueled a great many fanfics. I'm currently chuckling over how much I enjoy the thought of B/D/M!

You're welcome! :}

I'm told there are quite a few B/D/M stories. I'm not normally a very big fan of the 3-way story but that would at least be very pretty. *g*
