Things that remind me of Albert Flight
Permalink  
 

Love the Hal-based topic so thought perhaps Flight deserved some love too!

There is a line from the Tired Pony song "All Things At Once" which reminds me of Flight:

"These wings ain't for flying, these wings are just for show"

Obviously the reference to flying/wings and the name Flight but so much of what we see of Flight is just for show and the line reminds me of the sadness I see in him. He just doesn't seem to be able to achieve what he wants - he'll never be able to 'fly'.

And yesterday I got an email about a flash sale which reminded me of how Flight is so proud of himself for finding Werner just before things all go horribly wrong.

Hi Rosie, sorry I have not commented in this topic yet... thanks for starting it!


We need to point out perhaps that this is not like the Hal topic in that we don't know yet about the future of Flight (atleast, I am not ready to do a retrospective yet)

I guess an obvious one for me is anything lemon or lemonade related... lemon

Thanks for commenting domino. Ah yes, lemonade :)

I guess I hadn't really thought that we haven't yet seen the end of Flight like we have with Hal - I just like things that remind me of Flight particularly as we haven't seen him for a while!

In full Flight fan fic mode at the moment so Flight is on my mind. Even my desk at work is decorated with pictures for inspiration!

Very cool.. but impressive that you actually manage to get any work done with Albert Flight all over your desk!

We need to see a photo of this!

Yes he is rather distracting! I'll have to have a tidy up first but will post a photo soon!

Excuse the mess but here is my desk complete with Albert Flight pictures. Not sure why the photo seems to be in soft focus!

this is all kinds of awesome Rosie! I want that desk!

As an aside....Jack Weston could take inspiration from you and have a few more personal things on his desk

still surprised you can get any work done at all though...

I'm glad you approve domino! I'm stuck at my desk 8 hours a day so I need something nice to look at!

But we only want Jack to have more personal items on his desk so that we can get some kind of clue (any clues!) to a life outside the police station...

I'm surprised that I've managed to get away with having so many pictures on my desk and not be accused of sexist behaviour! I've even managed to get it to spread to my colleague/friend/fellow Ripper Street fan, Vicky who sits next to me. She has a picture of Jackson and Hobbs together and one of the awesome Sergeant Atherton! Vicky can never forgive Flight for what happened to Joseph Merrick but has conceeded that Damien is 'pretty'.

Things that remind me of Albert Flight:

When I said, quite unintentionally in the manner of Inspector Shine, "don't give me those eyes" to a friend's miniature dachsund puppy last night! Nobody in the room got why I was laughing so much!

I read today about Finnish Dr Jari Louhelainen who discovered who was the real Jack the Ripper, I instantly thought Albert Flight and had some fantasy that he did lock him up to madhouse and knew he was Jack the Ripper but nobody didn't believe himbiggrin

Read the story about mystery finally be revealed here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2746321/Jack-Ripper-unmasked-How-amateur-sleuth-used-DNA-breakthrough-identify-Britains-notorious-criminal-126-years-string-terrible-murders.html

I took "Jack the Ripper" London walk with Laura and went to London Dungeons experience and it seems that because Jack the Ripper was never revealed and it had this mystery floating around, it is still famous story.

I wonder, how much this will change things? Now that it seems we got our killer finally, 126 years late but anyway..confuse

Do you remember Laura who we thought that Jack killed?biggrin I don't remember well but Kosminski wasn't my guess!

I read quite a good novel called 'Mayhem' by Sarah Pinsborough. Aaron Kosminski was one of the characters but he helps the police surgeon to find the perpetrator of a set of more gruesome murders occurring at the same time as the Jack the Ripper murders. Chief Inspector Abberline is also in it and it reminded me of how he bullies our lovely Albert.

I've done the Jack the Ripper walk too. I liked walking Inspector Reid's streets!

The article about how they discovered the DNA is really interesting but the mystery of it was always so fascinating, it almost spoils it in a way. I wonder how this will change the tour? It's sad that at the time there was so little understanding of mental illness. Kosminski could have got the help he needed before the women were murdered.

That's brilliant, domino! I always wondered whether there would be a story in Ripper Street where Shine would come under suspicion as the Ripper. He was certainly psychotic enough!

I'm not being particularly serious about it Jozie and Rosie (your names rhyme, there's a poem in there somewhere!) but the thought did cross my mind that Shine was as you say psychotic enough but also his murder of choice as to 'rip' people ..although I am not sure he would be the man to go as far as Jack The Ripper did...in episode 7 of the last series he did appear to atleast show the potential of an inner tremble when Flight shed a tear over his mrder of Nathaniel Hinchcliffe......

That heinous character Silas Duggan however... and he was a barber...

Shine always preferred the garotte as his method of killing anyway! I love that scene where Shine says to Flight "Don't give me those eyes". Was he feeling the Molony effect?!

Funny that you say Jozie and Rosie rhymes, I sometimes get called Rosie Posie which also rhymes with Jozie Mozie!

Whee! I can't wait!coolbounce Maybe now you can add real Jack the Ripper to the story?  Maybe Jedediah Shine could be related to Kosminski...

I have my murder victim, I know how he has been murdered and who did it, but I just haven't figured out why yet!
