Dr Astrov screencap spam

After the whole US election certifying crap and mobs breaking into the Capitol in Washington, I needed a little break. TV was switched off this evening and I threw myself into screencapping Richard Armitage in Uncle Vanya. Not too bad a way to self-soothe. I might as well share my screencapping results with you all before I pick some fave images to add to my screensaver. So, here goes, first the beginning of the play with Nana (Anna Calder-Marshall). By the way, for a better look you can click on each of these images to enlarge them…

Then Vanya (Toby Jones) and Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) join Dr Astrov. I always love Richard’s hand acting..

We get the Astrov, Vanya and Telegin (Peter Wight) drunk scenes at night which are quite funny and a bit sad too…

… followed by Sonya trying to figure out if Astrov returns her romantic feelings.

Then we have the whole Astrov showing his passion for the woods and his maps and flirting with Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar) scene. That’s all quite sexy, the man sure knows how to flirt on stage!

Astrov and Vanya talk things out…

Astrov and Yelena have their last goodbyes…

And then it’s time for Astrov to reluctantly leave as well…

This screen adaptation of Uncle Vanya also had nice impressions of the actors coming into the theatre at the very beginning and these two images of Toby and Richard (who is only seen from behind) were my favourites…

At the very end, after the play had ended, the actors all came on stage to hug each other. I especially loved the Anna and Richard hug. Anna Calder-Marshall was lovely at the stage door when she signed my programme last February and she was gushing about how she loved doing the play and how she loved Toby and Richard in it. The Richard love is quite apparent in these pictures.

Now I got all that out of my system I think I am done with Vanya for a bit. Although, I will never get tired of looking at Richard with long hair and beard, that is just about my fave Richard look.

        1. I don’t own the images, haven’t edited them or anything, just clicked and saved. So go right ahead, they are free for anyone to use! I’ll be selecting a few for my screensaver this weekend… πŸ™‚

            1. If you have a windows PC, then it’s very easy. I have Windows 10. You can do as follows:

              – You make a folder on your computer and name it Screensaver. You save all the pictures in there that you want to show in your screensaver

              – Then in Windows click on the small windows symbol (Start) at the bottom left of your screen and choose Settings

              – Then choose Personalization > Lock Screen and scroll down to Screen saver settings

              – In the Screen saver box choose ‘Photos’ > then click on the little Settings box beside that and choose the folder (via Browse) that you made on your computer where you stored the pictures. Click save

              – I have my wait time set to 3 minutes so that if I don’t use my laptop for 3 minutes, the screen saver will automatically start playing.

              – Click on Apply and OK and you’re set!

              Hope this also works for you.

    1. I really needed to take my mind off other things, although I admit to screencapping fatigue when I was at the 3/4 mark. Pushed myself through to finish it up and then it was bedtime. πŸ™‚

  1. Wow you’ve captured some beautiful Astrov-butterflies in your net, Esther. Also, seeing all the stills in this way really shows what a fantastic range the man has. Thank you (and hope you don’t have a repetitive strain injury.)
