Loz Cola

Call it compulsive, call it impulsive, call it insane...

So, I'm watching Vanity Fair and Phil's Dobbin is just killing me with his sweetness. It's the strangest thing seeing Phil play someone who isn't bastard coated bastard with marshmallowy goodness. Of course, I had seen him as Lawrence in Calendar Girls, but you get the distinct impression that Lawrence could be a jerk if he wanted to be. Dobbin, on the other hand, is pure unmitigated anti-bastard. I want to pet him.

Oh, Phil.

Meanwhile, as severa pointed out in a comment, Dobbin is about the only character who isn't wholly comprised of all that is despicable in humanity. Needless to say, I am enjoying this adaptation quite a lot, but it might not be for everyone.
