Character: Uptight Wing Commander Ian Tully
Fashion statement: Hitler hairdo (a wig and not Peter' real
hair thank goodness!)
Deathless dialogue: TBA
Over Here is a comedy drama about British and American soldiers
sharing a British army base during WWII. Though individual scenes
are well-written, the juxtaposition of hilarity with somber meditations
on war ultimately gives the miniseries a disjointed feel.
Peter plays a relatively small supporting role whose main function
is comedy relief. Tully is a by-the-book buffoon who is awkward
around women and has uncontrolable erections at inopportune moments
(prompting one wise-cracking fan to ask Peter at a convention how
he prepared for the role!).
(above) The fan-nicknamed "Tully face." After seeing Peter in Over
Here, Valentine Pelka (Kronos from Highlander) nicknamed
him Squadron Leader Wingfield because he looked like a comic book
character Val remembered from his youth!
Over Here was broadcast in the U.S. as Over There.
