The Thirty-Nine Steps - Pictures

The adaptation of "The Thirty-Nine Steps" was broadcast last night on BBC One. It wasn't a patch on the 1935 Hitchcock film, but nevertheless a perfectly entertaining 90 minutes on a Sunday evening.

Captain Kell is the head of the Secret Service Bureau, an organisation that is contactable via the operator apparently! A few screen grabs:

Alex doesn't feature in this too much; my best advice would be not to blink!

The film is available here on the iPlayer until the 4th of January.

The whole drama is also available for viewing on YouTube.

I must say, I do love a man in uniform and Alex looks quite dapper in his!

Pity you have to wait an hour and then some for him to show up though. Must be fiddly to get that shirt collar done up...
