 For the benefit of those who are interested in the Life And Work Of Mr John Simm, Actor, I present the following screen captures from "Rumpole of the Bailey, Series 7" in which he essays the part of a juvenile delinquent. They date from 1992, and are vintage example of flippyfloppyhair.

Wow! I was doing my GCSEs in that year, and all the boys in the school adjoining ours had that hair-cut, whether it suited them or was appropriate for their hair-type or not. Even back then, most of us girls reacted by pointing and laughing...

I had a classmate called Daniel who had *exactly* this hair, but about 5 years earlier.

Hee - sounds like he was a bit of a trend-setter, then!

He is definitely getting his pout on in those pics!

His craft is chiefly devoted to optimizing the pout at this stage. I don't think there are *any* unpouty frames in this episode.

I am now going mad trying to think who he soooo reminds me of...

I did that when I was watching the episode. Turned out the answer was "John Simm".

I initially wondered if it was someone from The Bill.

I did that watching the trailer for Lennon Naked. I felt very silly when I found out the answer.

He's doing his best.

That's Rumpole's jacket you can see in the other two. You can almost *feel* Leo McKern trying to remember his long speeches.

My flist has also recently been regaled with Mr. Glenister as a juvenile delinquent in a Wexford series--put them together and it's Life on Mars with goatees!

Hah! We keep them on their toes.

Cor! he looks better now!

Somehow the floppy hair accentuates the receding chin.

Is that it? Mind you, the second screencap makes him look about 12...
