ST. JOHN’S, Nfld.–Holy crap, things happen a whole hour-and-a-half earlier out here.
The view of St. John’s harbour looks mighty fine from the sixth floor of the Delta hotel but that’s about all I’ve seen of the joint so far. Even the cab driver sounded like Rick Mercer so I guess I’m in the right place.
I’m here to visit the set of The Republic of Doyle, the new CBC drama that is set to debut in January. Allan Hawco is the big noise here, he’s the creator, producer and star of this series about a dysfunctional family who run a gumshoe racket out of St. John’s. Off to the set, reporting back later.


  1. Hey Bill!
    Have a great time on The Rock.
    Make sure you get ‘Screeched In’ while you’re there.

  2. Bill,
    Take it from a Newfoundlander – we don’t drink that stuff.
    It’s rotgut.
    Try a nice Appleton Estate and Coke.
    Have a great time.
