I’ve been feeling a bit “whatever” about being an RA fan in recent days…
Before I get bombarded, let me explain why.
I was hoping that by this time SOMETHING, ANYTHING Armitage had done during the Christmas break would have popped up by now.
Here’s Easter around the corner and there’s just nothing.
Excuse me,but how many Christian holidays are we expected to wait for something juicy?
So, I’ve decided to do as RA did during the Peter Jackson Vlog 6
Courtesy of Richard Armitage Alter Ego, I’ve mentioned this page before, its super funny!
I’m just going to turn around, Mr. A and I’m going to write a post on…
The pig heads parked in front of the Hale residence in Milton!
So, pig heads in a cart on a busy Victorian street in Milton is the topic of my post!
This is what I feel I have been reduced to!
Please feel free to ignore the centre of the picture and turn your focus on the right hand side.
Ever since I watched North and South for the first time, I have been playing a game of “spot the pig heads”.
They seem to be parked there in quite a few scenes.
It is unclear whether they are there because the local butchers conducts his business on the opposite side of the Hale house, or whether this is indeed the same batch all through the episodes, that has been abandoned or going through some strange Victorian meat pickling process.
I’m no meat specialist, if fact I’m a vegetarian, but I doubt the Milton smog would really smoke them to a satisfactory level.
My guess is the BBC prop department found them and stuck them in the shot for authenticity, hoping to get their moneys worth.
Maybe we would be able to find these in Pride and Prejudice or Doctor Who?
The proximity of the pig heads to the coffin has me a little nervous, but perhaps it’s a Milton thing…
I’m afraid to research online what a Victorian lady would do with a pig head, what fine dishes she would prepare.
I’m sure it was yummy…
