  1. I might be over-thinking this, but I cannot for the life of me think why Kirby has chosen to drop her surname. This is now the third project I’ve seen her credited with only a single moniker. Just feels a curious thing to do.

  2. Farrell is a busy man. He continues to impress me with his acting. I’m looking forward to this and his Penguin spin-off series coming soon too.

    1. I consider Farrell to be a method actor, and he does take his roles to the limit on occasion although not so much recently, as keeping himself busy seems to be his priority.
