Would like to see Joanna in...

Is there anything you'd like to see Joanna star in, a TV show or radio programme? Share it here!

I'd love it if she'd be invited as a guest on the brand new French & Saunders radio show. I'd hilarious to hear Jennifer and Joanna chat together but not as Patsy and Edina, but as themselves.

A 6 part comedy show where she's plays different charcters every week. Diana Rigg did a similar show called Three Piece Suite. I'd call it 'Six of the Best off Joanna Lumley'.

Re: Would like to see Joanna in...

I dearly wish she'd popped up in LoM or A2A playing a character somewhat reminiscent of her TNA or S&S roles, maybe a washed up actress in a cult program or something, just as a nod to her early career. That would've made me grin. :grin:

Re: Would like to see Joanna in...

I really desperately wanted Joanna to appear in A2A so all the men could drool over her haha :lol:
Another missed opportunity.

She could have been a suspect or something--Alex could have thought she looked familiar. Why do we have all the good ideas? :lolol:

I would have loved to have seen Joanna in The Devil Wears Prada, I thought that would have been really good.

Re: Would like to see Joanna in...

Gambit & Purdey

A London Weekend Television production

Sunday evenings at 8pm between 1980-1987.

The last episode, where they finally tied the knot, had record audiences of 23 million.

Re: Would like to see Joanna in...

I would like to see Joanna take the lead in a kind of detective/drama series, something like Prime Suspect. I think she'd be great in something like that.

I think it's a great idea. Maybe with Helen Mirren as a partner, that would be something, wouldn't it?

I can see it. It exists in the little TV set in my brain. :lol:

Actually, given all the man/woman flirty detective/crimesolving partnerships that were going on in the eighties, they would have fit pretty perfectly. Hart to Hart was even a married couple--who says they'd have to wait for the finale? :brows:

Darn, I wish this was real. :wub:

The big Purdey and Gambit show. It has a ring to it. Where's the ''like'' button? :whistle:

Yes please. She could have had bitchy conversations with Miranda, haha.

Nice one! She already did Lewis but perhaps Silent Witness? I'd also really like her to do a proper drama movie, I'm sure she'd be great at it.

It's basically the show I'd create if I had a time machine and a whack of funds. Wouldn't it be the best show ever? :squee:

I think it'd be fun to see Joanna in Hustle as some sort of grand dame con artist. She could be an old friend of Albert's and collaborate with the rest of the crew. Maybe flirt with Marc Warren. :wink:
