One of the benefits of blogging to a global audience is that even though Friday has already passed in Australia (by 30 minutes), it’s still Friday somewhere in the world so I can still do a Friday Photo post! Today it’s the lovely Ruth Evershed. I know I go on a lot about Ros on this blog but the truth is, of all the female characters on Spooks, I’m most similar to Ruth (but I want to be Ros!).
So that’s the photo… but wait, there’s more! Thanks to Shaijinx, today’s Friday photo also comes with a word of the day: Ruth. It’s not just a name, it’s a noun! Have a great weekend!
