Today it’s been exactly 5 years that Absolutely Sophia Myles first opened its doors! Back then it was hosted on some unknown free host on a very long URL but it was only a few months until I realized how much I loved running this site and bought a domain. Time has really flown by and I am proud to have kept the site up to date for half a decade. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you loyal visitors who have encouraged and helped me along the way. Most of all thank you Sophia Myles for being such a great inspiration to all of us!!
As a treat for you all I have made screencaptures of Sophia’s guest appearance on one of England’s longest running series: “Heartbeat“. The programme first aired in 1992 and is currently in its 18th season and is a period police drama set in 1960’s North York Moors. Back in 2001 (Season 11) a 21 year old Sophia played a central character in what was, I believe, a Christmas Special called No Hiding Place.
As Christmas arrives in sleepy Aidensfield, Mike and Tricia try to reunite a blind woman with her stolen guide dog – and in time-honoured fashion, they share a drunken kiss under the mistletoe to boot. Elsewhere, the local menfolk have their heads turned by the arrival of a stunning beauty trying to evade the paparazzi
As the series – apart from a few early episodes – have so far never been released on video or DVD it’s almost impossible to catch up with this project of Sophia’s. So the hugest thank you goes to Dawn who shared her recording with me and thus has made this update possible!!! Enjoy the screencaptures of Sophia as the breathtakingly beautiful actress Heather Conway with a secret on the run:
