All good things must come to an end, and who am I to argue with Nelly Furtado? Unfortunately, it was never possible to fully restore the Goodboy, Sparky! Website, and the days of website are probably over, anyway, what with everybody hanging out on Instasnapfacetwitindr (or like me, binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. So sue me, Dorothy).

Also, the last three years have been a bit of (well, monumentally) bollocks, healthwise, and while things are luckily looking much better now, I had to set priorities: Jack Davenport’s fans don’t really need a fansite, but I need my energy to live and make a living, sooo… I’ll pull the plug on the website on 4th of June, 2018. If there’s anything on Goodboy, Sparky! you like, download now, last chance!

Tumblr, Twitter and LJ accounts have already been deleted. This account here will stay up, because there’s a lot of information here which is still often visited, and I don’t want that to take away from you people. Have fun with it, my dears!

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the website for twelve marvellous years, to Jack Davenport for his work and of course to Sparky for inspiring the whole thing in the first place. Dismissed!



… unfortunately, he didn’t bring anything.

“We have unfortunatele to notify your about a MySQL1096 database losst of your Webhosting content.”


If you ever get a mail with that content, your website will look like this:


“We are very sorry about this issue and kindly ask you to create new database and import your backup.”


Too bad he backup of the new website is, for whatever BLOODY REASON not accepted, and all you get is error upon error upon error.


Bollocks to that. Christmas is just around the corner, and I will not spend it hitting my head on the keyboard. I’m currently uploading the last backup of the old website, which is outdated, but at least there and has many pretty pictures of Jack Davenport to look at. I’ll see what I can do about this problem next year.

“As a compensation we have added 1 month of free hosting to your account.”



Only if they threw Andrew Buchan into the mix, but as things are, this is going to be fantabulous as it is!

Thanks to Karen and the fine folks over at James Darcy.net for the heads-up that the casting for “Gernika” has been confirmed. Our very own Jack Davenport and the very lovely James D’Arcy! Mr Norrington and Mr Pullings in the same movie, be still, my heart of oak…



If you hear “Guernica” you think, of course, of Picasso’s painting with the same title (Gernika is the Basque name of Guernica). It shows the horror and devastation of the bombing of Guernica/Gernika during the Spanish civil war.

According to IMDB:

The fates of Henry (James D’Arcy) – a cynical American correspondent who has lost his soul – and Teresa (Maria Valverde), one of the Republic’s censors and in charge of overseeing the news that journalists can send abroad, cross in Gernika.

Jack Davenport will play “Vasyl” – more information will follow as it becomes available.

Finally a trailer for The Key Man! And you will not only get to see Jack Davenport, but also the great, the fantastic, the one and only Mitzi, Elrond, Hugo Weaving! Woo-hoo! Yeah! Applause!

And now for something completely different.

If you don’t need visuals: here is something while you wait for Jack Davenport to finally record a reading of the telephone book:

In 2004, as Pope John Paul II’s reign enters its twilight, a mysterious exhibit is under construction at the Vatican Museums. A week before it is scheduled to open, its curator is murdered at a clandestine meeting on the outskirts of Rome. The same night a violent break-in rocks the home of the curator’s research partner, Father Alex Andreou, a Greek Catholic priest who lives inside the Vatican with his five-year-old son.


Huzzah, it’s Sparky-Day!


This just in: Jack Davenport will star in a yet unnamed comedy thingy for HBO next to Sarah Silverman. It’s written by Secret Diary Of A Call Girl *cue eerie organ music* creator Lucy Prebble.


Jude (Silverman) is a “pathologically honest woman” having a modern midlife crisis. Blake (Davenport) is a “broken Brit” (so he’s on a zero hours contract?) who ends up in a relationship with Jude, despite getting caught up in his own virtual reality in Seattle. – Quoi?

More news as we get it.


Jack Davenport talks about his role as Lancelot in “Kingsman: Secret Service” at the New York Premiere of the movie.


And another soundbite!


Thanks to Karen for the tip!
