I've just found out that Lewis Collins - one of the stars of The Professionals has died. Aged 67.

The Professionals (with the wonderful Bodie and Doyle) was one of my early "must watch" TV shows. I was totally drawn to Bodie and Doyle's magnetic partnership. It was so slash worthy (before I even knew that slash was a thing). Lewis was wonderful as Bodie. It feels like an era has (really) ended. :(

One of my first crushes...

Sending hugs x

Yeah. One of my first addicted to bromance crushes.

Oh! Such a shame! I used to love the Professionals too...I didn't know you got it over in the States?

I'm in Australia..;) And yeah, we got it here. Not sure if it aired at the same time as the UK though - maybe a couple of years later (?). But I loved it (I still bring out the DVDs and watch certain episodes).

Ah you're an Aussie! That explains it. (The Professionals thing not other things --- although it probably does...LOL). We are still getting it aired regularly on one of the freeview channels.

haha..it really does explain things…;D

I haven't seen it aired here for ages. It's a classic though.

I'm still in shock. Still the fandom I've been in the longest and written the most in.

I did think of you when I heard the news. Sad to hear he was battling cancer. :(

It feels like an era has (really) ended.

I was thinking... this might actually be the first death among the bigger early slash pairings, mightn't it? I mean, Shatner & Nimoy are still with us, Soul & Glaser too... what was the next big slash pairing? The Professionals, I do believe. :(

Yeah. Good point - and you're right. The first to go from those early pairings. :(
