No sooner did the first fan video in honour of Jeremy Northam’s Dr Proctor in Miami Medical appear on YouTube than another has been made, this time by the very talented princessamerigo, who has made a number of Jeremy Northam fan videos.
princessamerigo (named after Jeremy’s character Prince Amerigo in Merchant Ivory’s adaptation of Henry James’ The Golden Bowl, 2000) has been rather clever in picking up on Doc Proc’s “I’m here to live”. If you cracked this character open like a stick of fairground rock perhaps this is what it’d say through its centre. I don’t know about you, but I have been pondering on it quite a lot. So far, HotDocProc’s brush with the Grim Reaper, resulting in his being “slightly left of slightly left of centre”, has seen him hanging precariously off the edge of a building with his shirt off (thank goodness for the behind the scenes clip reassuring us that Jeremy Northam, who along with me doesn’t like heights, wasn’t actually dangled off the edge of a roof some hundreds of feet high…), referring to sandwiches in theatre, roping in janitors for surgical procedures, calling a man impaled on a very long metal pole lucky, and offering coffee to a completely shocked Dr Zambrano when she unexpectedly wakes up, sans clothes, in what looks like his apartment. So far, his colleagues may well be thinking, along with Mr Spock, that “it’s life Jim, but not as we know it”. I wonder what he’s going to get up to next!
We don’t have too long to wait: the next episode of Miami Medical, All Fall Down, airs on Friday night at 10pm on CBS.
