At birthday dinner last night, I was telling Husband and oracne that Rupert Graves wore a loom bracelet in his ice bucket video.  (All three of us have been gifted with similar elastic jewelry over the past year.)  Geeklet frowned slightly and asked, "Rupert...Graves?  Who's he?  What's he been in?"

I tried to think where my ten-year-old might have seen this actor.  Um.  Not this.  Not that. Absolutely not that.

"Remember the Doctor Who episode with dinosaurs?  He was...um...the dinosaur hunter."

[Anti-climactic face]  "Oh."

I'm not sure digging up Pride and listening to his voice work there is going to improve matters any. Fast Girls will do nothing to explain his appeal, either...

I don't think so. Sometimes I feel like I'm barely mature enough, myself.

Mine have only seen A Study in Pink, and M wanders off after they find the "Pink Lady".

How odd - because he's got kids, right? And you always hear about actors doing kid-appropriate stuff so their kids can have something to watch with them in it. I wonder if he's done kid stuff and we just don't know about it because we're over here?

Heh. I don't think the Graves fandom has left much undocumented. ;-)

As far as I can tell, he has no strategy whatsoever regarding his career, including whether his oeuvre contains kid-appropriate material or not. *beams adoringly* He does spend a ton of time with his kids and it looks like he mainly accepts public appearance invitations based on whether they're kid-appropriate or not and he can fit them into his daddying schedule, so I imagine they probably don't feel the lack.
