R.I.P John Hurt


Time doesn't stop just because it's a new year. I needed to have tried harder in 2016 to keep up but on some level I've been holding my breath and waiting for it to end. It's not going to.

Someday cancer and I are going to have words.

Storyteller, Doctor, doomed Spaceman, Wand Seller, paranormal Professor Broom, Horned King. And everything else. What an IMDB page, this guy. Caligula AND Jesus?

My favourites among Mr. Hurt's roles in my preferred fantasy genres have brilliance and greatness mingled with great suffering and tragedy. This is a loss keenly felt, and it's his role on Doctor Who that asked us to take hold of The Moment.
