David Hewlett’s Oct 2nd Blog Entry

During hisĀ latest blog entry David Hewlett has directly addressed the escalation of rumours on the net. It appears the actor has been inundated with emails from fans,

“I’m getting frantic emails about all sorts of things”


You can read the entire text concerning rumours from David’s blog on the ‘Rumour Mill Log’ page. It does appear that the actor gives an answer to the question we’ve all been asking but that answer depends on how you ‘read between the lines’. To the staff of SCB we are taking this as a positive sign that FINALLY people are stopping the denials and FINALLY starting to address our concerns. Whatever purposes you intended this entry to serve, THANK YOU DAVID for at least saying SOMETHING.
We’ve also added the Bridge Studios email address bridgestudios@bcpavco.com to our ‘Addresses’ page. PLEASE REMEMBER this is NOT A SUBTITUTE for directly mailing a snail mail letter. We need AS MANY fans as possible to send letters of concern and support for Carson Beckket and the man who brings the character to life, Paul McGillion. To ALL the addresses supplied! KEEP THE LION RAMPANT: SAVE CARSON BECKETT!!!

  1. I’ve been hearing a lot of rumors circulating about the potential demise of Carson Beckett, and the only thing I’m sure about is, if Beckett goes, so do I. He was the first character I cared about and he remains the highlight of every episode he’s on. For me, Carson is a reflection of how I would feel in many of the same situations, so he’s the character I most relate to. I’ve become emotionally invested in him, and if his character’s no longer around, then there’s really no reason for me to keep watching.

  2. Hello.
    Take a look at my e-mail address.
    I’m one of those Enterprise fans who will NEVER FORGIVE Bermaga for murdering — yes, MURDERING — Trip Tucker.
    I DON’T CARE that it was the last show of the series.
    I DON’T CARE who wrote it.
    I DON’T CARE who directed it.
    I DON’T CARE who the “guest stars” were.
    Never forget. Never forgive.

    Killing off a character is the lazy writer’s route to shaking up a show and “creating” drama. If Paul wants off, of course, let him go. But please please please, don’t do to SGA fans what Bermaga did to Enterprise fans!

    I love Carson. I love his accent. I love his gentleness. I love his fear of Ancient technology. I love that he “gave” us Michael. I love that he’s funny in a sweet, touching way.

    I want to see MORE of Carson!
    More Carson. More Carson! More more more more more more more more MORE CARSON BECKETT!

    ]Spare Carson. Spare us. Please!

  3. It makes absolutely no sense to kill off Carson. He has been a major player since day one. Didn’t make sense when they killed off Janet on SG-1 either. Shock value pure and simple! It will take away from the show if this happens.

    Long live Beckett!!!

  4. I feel the need to agree with JP- he’s a fantastic aspect of the show, and indeed, sometimes one of the only reasons I enjoyed an episode of Atlantis. Why kill him off? There’s no good reason, and quite frankly, unless it’s the actor leaving the show for his/her own reasons, it’s a bit of a slap in the face to fans. Please do not remove this beloved character!! We love Beckett!

  5. Same here to Mary Fultz! Shock value I absolutely DO NOT NBEED! I need my gentle, caring, sweet teddy bear named Carson Beckett!

    This is a slap in the face to not only the fans but to Paul Mcgillion and his fantastic portrayal of that wonderfully lovable Scottish needle-pusher name Carson Beckett!

  6. I agree with several of the fans in that Carson is an essential character that gives the story depth and life. I think his demise will leave a whole that can never be filled or replaced, much like Janet on SG-1.

    I certainly hope this isn’t simply a means to create drama on the show. The stories that have been created and developed for Atlantis and SG-1 are absolutely wonderful and complex enough to avoid lazy techniques that simply take away from the overall framework that makes a show so good!
