'HOME FRONT': Damien Molony is 'Hardy Walsh' in BBC Radio 4 WW1 Drama Serial
Permalink  
 

did anyone listen to today's Home Front episode?

It certainly seems Hardy and Emily are becoming closer. I am increasingly moved by Emily and Bertram's father's story and the effect his condition has on his daily living and family. Home Front on a whole is rather moving and engrossing...and is becoming very moreish!

The weekly Home Front Omnibus airs tonight on Radio 4 at 9pm Rosie - you will catch Damien's episode, but it's well worth listening to the whole week! It will also be available online to download as weekly omnibus too.  Enjoy!

Just listened to the latest omnibus edition. Loved the way Hardy Walsh allowed Cyrus Colville to think Harry was his valet! I thought he handled the "there's a war on" quite well, too. Loved his plans for the estate - they could always tell Cyrus the idea was his if he found out about any changes.

Agree Ellie, we are seeing a far more compassionate and understanding Hardy. When he first arrived he had a rigid, kind of administerial (?) agenda, with no context and and not sensitive to the real lives of, and people, involved, especially the hard working women folk. Thankfully his attitude and manner have evolved quickly!

I've not listened to tomorrow's episode yet - want to listen live! listen

What a gorgeous, gentle, heart warming, poignant episode it was. 

Did anyone else catch it?

Just caught the omnibus edition. Lovely episode, a definite spark there between Emily and Hardy when Cyrus thought they were getting married! The way they both said " imagine that" - with any luck. She deserves a chance to be happy and he would be great at looking after the estate. Fingers crossed!

Agree Ellie, that final scene was brimming with possibility... As we are approaching the very final episode of Home Front, a wedding would be the perfect way to end it all!

It was the last episode in this series of Home Front today, another wonderful instalment.

Damien wasn't in it - but Hardy Walsh was present and had a mention ! tangentially

Really enjoyed it, glad Isabel finally got married (an affair with a married vicar and two previous engagements).
Wish Damien was in but at least Hardy got a couple of mentions - and he was dancing with Emily!
Unfortunately, unless the next series is set in Devon, that may be the last time Damien appears. Home Front follows certain families whose base is Folkstone; other characters in areas they visit seem to be those who have a connection with one of the Grahams or their extended family (especially Kitty Lumley). Emily is, alas, a relatively minor character.
However, if part of the next season is set in Devon, I would hope he's in!

Hi Ellie Oh I do hope we hear Damien / Hardy Walsh again in the next series (which I assume will be the last ever series). It would have been more of a certainty if he and Emily not been mentioned in the last episode of this series, because their story needed closure. But the brief mention of them dancing together could (kind of) count as closure, as the audience now are more sure of their romance developing. But it would be great if the final final ep ended on a wedding too wouldn't it? Especially after that "imagine that" scene when Cyrus thought they were getting married! aw
Fingers crossed! fingerscrossed

I would love them to go round all the characters, in Folkstone, Tynemouth and Devon, and have an update on them all. A few months probably isn't long enough for a wedding but an engagement would be lovely!

I'm just really wanting to see and hear more Damien! I just hope "something in the pipeline" isn't code for "nothing right now".

It's only right that all locations are covered Ellie!

I've just read the final series begins 24 September...

You said:
"I just hope "something in the pipeline" isn't code for "nothing right now". "

I guess you're referring to his recent Lovetalkin podcast interview?
That is definitely not the way i read it - you're missing the last part of that sentence, which more than implies particular projects on the way!

"you have a lot of things in the pipeline haven't you, which you can't talk about"

 

Although I do share your yearning for more DaMo... and soon!

I totally have my fingers crossed for a romance between Emily and Hardy!

I love Damien's enthusiasm for radio work. It's probably not considered the most glamorous work in acting circles but it gives pleasure to lots of listeners.

Me too Rosie, and very grateful for it. I often wonder about the radio process from the actor's point of view - it must be a very different experience without the visual 'recording' of the work. I'd love to know more about these recordings, they are very much a ensemble and must be recording that way.

The next series of Home Front begins soon, 24 September.

According to the upcoming episodes schedule it will indeed be set in Folkestone, you were right Ellie.

Unless Hardy Wash moves from Devon, it does sadly look as if Damien may not return for the final series!

 

However, what a treat it was to enjoy his time during the penultimate series

and all his episodes are still available to listen and download worldwide!

Damien's series of Home Front is being aired on BBC Radio 4 Extra at the moment! 

Despite having listened and downloaded many times, it is still a treat to hear 'live' on the radio The Old Fashioned Way

Did anyone see there is a special final, final Home Front episode?

Home Front: A Fragile Peace

It is over an hour long and a flash forward. 

according to lead writer Katie Hims in the series 15 trailer:

"As well as season 15, we have a special which is set on the 10th of  November 1919 on the eve of the first rememberance day, the first anniversary of the armistice, and it's an opportunity to flash forward in our characters lives and imagine where they might be. And that really is our final goodbye, that really is when we try and finish as many stories as we possibly can"

As series 15 is set in Folkestone, could this final special episode perhaps feature a certain Hardy Walsh, if a romance did indeed flourish with Emily Colville? fingerscrossed

I totally have my fingers crossed for a HardyEmily romance. This special sounds like a moving way to mark the end of the programme.
