“The Terror”: Real Versus Reel

While I’m working on screencapping Tobias’ work on both OUTLANDER and THE TERROR I thought it would be interesting to find out the truth of what happened during the fated Franklin Expedition. Being a huge history buff much like Frank Randall, I really thought some information about the real expedition would be fascinating to post. There is a channel on Youtube called History Buffs. This channel deconstructs films and shows using history or historical facts to either debunk, demystify, or outright blow a hole in these reel versions of real history. I agree with the creator in there was no need to create a monster to haunt and stalk the crew members of The Erebus and The Terror. The conditions in which the men lived were horrific enough, and the depths of the depravity they had to stoop to in order to survive. Dan Simmons’ book was fantastic in its attention to detail, however, writing it more from a historical perspective rather than a fictional one would have been, at least I think, more practical to show what those of the Franklin Expedition went through in terms of those years trying to forge history. Yeah, I’m that much of a nerd. And just like OUTLANDER where I see some things truly lacking in Diana Gabaldon’s writing, I wish Simmons had just written the book and allowed the supernatural elements to rest on that tundra. If anyone is interested in an actual historical film based on fact with no ooga booga please check out the A&E film Shackleton starring Sir Kenneth Branagh and directed by Charles Sturridge. The mini-series is excellent and the production values pre-GAME OF THRONES are exceptional.

Flashback Friday: Tobias “Outlander” Interview From 2014

Because I was late in putting this site up, I missed out on Tobias’ OUTLANDER work including interviews for the show. Here Tobias talks about the show and his two characters of Frank Randall and Captain Black Jack Randall. He discusses the challenges of working in Scotland, explains he had his first love scene with Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser) that in effect popped his on-screen cherry, about filming the scenes in Wentworth Prison with Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and teeth. It’s a cute interview.

“Game of Thrones” Season Six Uploads

Following up on season three’s events, Tobias wasn’t seen on GAME OF THRONES again until season six. Here Edmure had spent years in Walder Frey’s (David Bradley) dungeon having fathered a child on his wedding night. Season six saw The Blackfish (Clive Russell) retake Riverrun from the Freys forcing them to call on the Lannisters to come and take it back. In a pivotal episode Edmure is told by Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) he’ll take drastic measures in the form of sending Edmure’s son over the walls on a catapult if Edmure doesn’t do as he’s told. All in all heartbreaking for Edmure as he ended up back in the Frey dungeon likely still not having seen his son. I find it kind of ironic that as Black Jack Randall on OUTLANDER Tobias tortured Jamie Fraser played by the amazing Sam Heughan, only to be tortured by a Jaime in a Lannister.

Hello & Welcome To Tobias Menzies Online …. Or Late To The Party

Hello and welcome to TOBIAS MENZIES ONLINE a fansite dedicated to the talented actor and activist TOBIAS MENZIES best known for his roles as Edmure Tully on GAME OF THRONES, Frank Randall and Captain Black Jack Randall on the history hopping series OUTLANDER, Captain James Fitzjames in THE TERROR, Marcus Junius Brutus on ROME, Nathaniel Bloom in THE HONOURABLE WOMAN, Geoffrey Dromgoole in THE NIGHT MANAGER and currently being seen as Prince Philip on THE CROWN. The aim of this webiste is to provide the most up-to-date information on Tobias’ career, public appearances, and other things related to his public life.

It is to my shame I didn’t put this site up sooner after first discovering Tobias as Villiers in CASINO ROYALE, and again discovering him as Edmure Tully on HBO’s GAME OF THRONES. However, he came full stop to my attention in the dual roles of Frank Randall and Captain Jonathan Wolverton “Black Jack” Randall on the STARZ show OUTLANDER along with his co-star Sam Heughan, however, there is a sizable site already dedicated to Sam and I didn’t want to step on toes. It was to my shock there were no sites dedicated to Tobias. So this site is it. Please come back often to check out the various things I will be getting up on the site. Which brings me to the fact there’s nothing much up as you can see. I’m hoping to take you along as this site grows. So please keep track of the site on our Twitter account at Tobias Menzies Online On Twitter for any notifications and updates.
