  • Tracer:Trouble at mill.
  • Mercy:Oh no- what kind of trouble?
  • Tracer:One on’t cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
  • Mercy:Pardon?
  • Tracer:One on’t cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
  • Mercy:I don’t understand what you’re saying.
  • Tracer:(irritated and with exaggeratedly clear accent) One of the cross beams has gone out askew on the treadle.
  • Mercy:Well what on earth does that mean?
  • Tracer:I don’t know- Mr. Morrison just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that’s all - I didn’t expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

  • Junkrat:NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency...

Michael Socha Interview

How did that experience compare to working on something like Once Upon A Time, then, for US network TV?

Socha: Fuck me, yeah. Massive, massive deal. When I first got there and did the spin-off [Once Upon A Time In Wonderland], I was working an awful lot. It was great to work in the green screen studios and all that sort of stuff. It opened my eyes and I got to see a completely different world. I got to see LA. I got to live in Vancouver for two years, eventually.

But then I joined the main show and I wasn’t really used, so I found myself in Vancouver for a long time not really doing owt, which fucked me up a bit really. I thought, if I’m going to be here, fucking do something with me. I’ve got a boy at home and it’s crucifying me being here and not working. If I was here working, I’d feel I was doing something at least, but it kind of fucked me up a bit really.

Wonderland was incredible, but Once Upon A Time, I found it quite soul-destroying. My mam came out for three months eventually because I just wasn’t doing owt. I found it sort of unfair. It wasn’t the fault of the powers that be, it was just the way the cookie crumbled I suppose, but I didn’t really enjoy it by the end.

The fan reaction was definitely that your character, Will, was under-served on the main show.

Socha: Originally, they asked me to come and said I was going to be in all these episodes. So the contract was written. The fans are so loyal to the characters that are already there and there’s so much that they have to conclude with the characters that were already there, I think I became more of a hindrance than anything. I didn’t really know what I was doing there.

Apparently Michael Socha got screwed over by OUaT.
