This too hard but has anyone noticed the type of characters the league play and our responses to them.

I challenge you to name one Reece Shearsmith character you warm to. I find it impossible. Even Ross and Benjamin have their flaws and are undearing don't you think? I suppose with the amount of Reece lovers here that may be controversial.

As for Marks characters, i appreciate his characters such as stump hole cavarns dude, ned, dr.chinnery and the corpse shagging dude from series three, as well crafted almost Alan Bennett northern tragics. I think you admire them more then steve and reece's characters to whom you can go nuts for.

As for Steve i feel as though you can warm to his character much more then anything reece or mark play. Theirs a certain amount of love towards Tubbs, Mr.Denton and even Herr Lipp. You can't help feeling sorry for them. I think if Reece had played these characters it would of been a different story and his suppressed anger would of came through, you wouldn't of sympathised with them the way you do when steve plays them.

Not really so much as flaws but say when he trying to escape or when he stands up to the Dentons i, personnally, never root for him. I think this is partially because you can't help but like the Dentons so when he fights against them you can't help saying, well your aunty and uncle are just doing what the believe in.

i understand what you mean jack about all 3.

Reece's characters tend to be have some kind of demented anger or frustrated cruel streak but also strangely charismatic too. I don't think he wants to do 'nice' probably cos he looks so benign and sweet and little in real life. But i warm to Benjamin very very much *ahhh*. And have a certain fond sympathy for Judee, Rich and for Geoff even thought they are very flawed.

Geoff is probably the character I care about the most, warm to, whatever you want to call it. But apart from that I can see what Jack's saying, especially about Mark.

Yeah! That's it! Thats what i was trying to say when i went "go nuts for." Papa Lazaru is the best example i can think of this, who would of thought such a handsome little man could also be a charasmatic devil-esque pimp.

DING - that is the right answer - PAM DOOVE, of course - *applause for PNW* ... how could i forget lovely wee Pam - looks just like a friend of mine too (weird - she is really pretty but reminds me of Pam. I would never tell her she looked like a man in drag but she has the same smile and rosy cheeks and everything)
