mark-gatiss:

At a certain moment, after all, every man chooses: will he go forward, will he go back? There was nothing dishonourable in not being blown about by every little modern wind. Better to have worth, to entrench, to be an oak of one’s own generation.

-John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Smiley: You’re going to do something for me, Peter. I need the duty officers log book from last November. I’m going to have to send you up a floor, into the lions den. If you’re caught, you can’t mention me. I’m sorry, but you’re alone.

Guillam: Last November?

"Guillam sits alone at the table reading a newspaper. After a moment, a man, his lover - Richard - a decade or so older - walks behind him, stroking his hair tenderly, and joins him at the table. Guillam automatically checks the window - the flat opposite, a lit window - could someone see them? He gets up and closes the curtains, settles back at the table, passing Richard a section of the paper. The two sit in domestic contentment, reading."

The brilliance of saying it without saying it. From an early version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy script. One of many scenes that were written, then left to viewer’s imagination.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Peter Guillam.

PS In the version of the script quoted above, Peter does not cry after Richard leaves. In fact, that might not have been scripted at all; actors are artists.

Could not resist one more of wonderful Peter/Benedict…If you’ve seen Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, you know what Peter is boggling at. I actually made two versions of this gif, the one above and another a bit longer showing what Peter is looking at. But I didn’t post the second since it is a…

I don’t know why, but the grey three-piece with the blue trimmings does things to my ovaries that are entirely inappropriate. I just can’t explain it, it’s not human, I don’t even know.
