Someone Comes Up With A Mystery TV Show Starring Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen, And Their Concept Goes Viral


The bromance between Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart is so pure, it seems to be eternal. From movie sets and theater stages to carnival rides and photo booths, the actors are not only working together, but they’re also enjoying their free time together. And their fans love their friendship so much, they’re even writing fan fiction, imagining how it should continue.

Author M.L. Brennan came up with a new version recently. “I think what I’d really like right now is a cozy British village murder mystery show where Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are elderly widower neighbors who bicker a lot about their gardens, and also solve crimes,” Brennan tweeted. They went on to develop their pitch, and it quickly won over the Internet. As of this article, Brennan’s Twitter thread with the concept of the show has over 86K likes and 17K comments, many of which are begging TV execs to make it a reality.

No wonder so many people would like to see Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart working on this project — they have amazing chemistry, and it really transcends the productions they’re working on. Like in No Man’s Land/Waiting for Godot. The two were marvelous together.

McKellen and Stewart met all the way back in the 1970s in the Royal Shakespeare Company, but they didn’t hit it off right away. McKellen was already playing the great parts and Stewart — who worshipped him — actually found him intimidating. It wasn’t until they started working on X Men that the men really bonded.

“We had adjoining trailers,” Sir Patrick Stewart told WIRED. “When you’re in those kind of movies, you spend more time sitting in your trailer than you do in front of the camera, so Ian and I hung out together, drinking tea and later in the afternoon maybe something a little stronger and we got to know one another and the charm of it was that we found we had so much in common.”

To prove how close they’ve become, McKellen even married Stewart and his wife. He was the one performing the ceremony. Yeah, so if anyone can pull off Brennan’s story, it’s these two.

And it pretty much exploded from there
