Flashing back to Coupling

Jack Davenport, who starred in the BBC sitcom Coupling, has been cast to play Lloyd Simcoe in ABC's pilot based on my novel Flashforward, and, in honour of that, Carolyn and I, and our friends Nick DiChario and Bev Geddes, watched the first two episodes of Coupling this evening. Carolyn and I had seen the whole series previously, and loved it -- and, I've got to say, it's just as good on a second viewing, and Jack Davenport is fabulous (as is Susan Walker, pictured with him above).

Why did you decide to name him Lloyd Simcoe if he has a son and a dead wife instead of a fiance and a dead step-daughter? Or did someone else make that decision?

Hi, Connor. David and Brannon, who wrote the pilot script, made that decision.
