Before She was an Oscar Nominated Actress…

Turn your dials to BBC America next Saturday (3/20) at 7:00pm. One of the best episodes of television will be repeated. I mention the episode of Doctor Who titled “Blink” on this blog because it features a fantastic performance by the then-little known Carey Mulligan. This episode also has the distinction of being one of the rare Who outings in which “The Doctor” (in this case the 10th Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant) is not prominently featured. All the emotion and drama to be experienced rests on the shoulders of Ms. Mulligan. And she proves to be more than up to the task. As a result of her performance she became one of my favorite up and coming actresses.
