Listening to Benedict Cumberbatch playing T.S.Eliot in “Tom and Viv” this morning, after going to the doctors.
I listened to Tom and Viv went from being in love with each other, having difficulties over life and questions over characters (Viv shown signs of mental health illness). Along the way Viv’s family flew around in between the lines, trying to help Tom get used to the life with Viv. To me Viv seemed a hysterical woman, constantly putting everyone on edge. It wouldn’t have surprised me if eventually Tom had to give her up, as his patience finally ran out. To me, it was always a joy to hear the voice of Benedict, I could listen to him reading all day.
