inspecteur Daan De Winter


Professor T’s Noris

Since Summer I’ve been trying to write a blog post about real, fake and imagined Staedtler Noris pencils in the UK, but I didn’t manage yet to get all the information together.

Luckily, it’s the holiday season, so even though the blog post about the real, fake and imagined Noris is still a while off, we managed to have a bit time to spare and watched some telly.

Discovering another Noris is of course a great bonus if you watch telly and this time the Noris makes  its appearance in several episodes of the Belgian TV series Professor T.

Here’s an animated GIF. If it isn’t animated on your device you might have to click on it first.

Just to set the record straight. The TV series is called Professor T., but the Staedtler Noris belongs to inspecteur Daan De Winter, played by Bart Hollanders. Here he’s seen playing with his Noris while waiting in the hospital. He seems to like this pencil as he is using it in other episodes, too.

While writing this blog post I realised that there’s a German remake. I wonder whether the remake also features Staedtler’s Noris.

In the UK Professor T. is being shown as part of Channel 4’s Walter presents series. Walter presents started with Deutschland 83, a TV series with Faber-Castell’s 9000.

Here a proper video, depending on your device it might play better or worse than the animated GIF.

I have added this Belgian Noris to the Noris in the Wild page.
