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!

Yesterday, the filming of Smash‘s second season officially ended. With the show’s ratings coming in at an all-time low, it’s unlikely that the show will be renewed by NBC for a third season.

On a brighter note, Jack’s next project, a six-part TV medical drama called Breathless, begins production in London next month. So he’s staying busy, and that’s a very good thing!

Here are some photos of him from yesterday during Smash’s final shoot. (Take note of the nice comment made about him by one of the actresses on set.)

Good luck to Jack and the rest of the Smash cast as they go their separate ways. And let’s all enjoy Smash, season 2!

Finally, Jack’s newest film, Mother’s Milk, is available for online viewing! (In a very limited capacity at this point, but still.) Those of you on Facebook can stream it for a rental price of $6.69 from the Mother’s Milk Facebook page. Just click on the “Watch Now” button below the site’s main photo (see screenshot below), and you can watch the latest and greatest cinematic Jack!


Also, you can pre-order the Mother’s Milk DVD at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mothers-Milk-DVD/dp/B00A8MBR0M/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1355949885&sr=1-1


Although amazon.co.uk lists the DVD as Region 2, we are assured by the Mother’s Milk PR folks that the DVD is REGION 0 PAL, which means it can be played on any PAL system. This includes some countries outside Region 2. Check this site to see if your country uses the PAL system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PAL-NTSC-SECAM.svg. You’re not in these countries? Check to see if your computer will play PAL DVDs. (But don’t ask me how to do that!)

The going rate for the Mother’s Milk DVD is £9.00, and the release date is April 2. And amazon.co.uk promises that if their listed price decreases between the time you place your order and the release date, you’ll be charged the lowest price. What a deal!

Also according to the film’s PR folks, they don’t have the rights to release the movie in cinemas outside the UK and Ireland. The film is still making the rounds in these countries – it premiered in London in November and has since opened in Cork, Dublin, Brighton and Sheffield. There are rumors that it might open in Dorset in February. So if you’re out and about in these areas, you might be able to catch the movie on the big screen.
