Inevitable Torchwood Post

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

Robin Hood men in Gap had me worried. I was concerned the creativity, box ticking types had taken over BBC’s new fun drama output. However I liked Torchwood. Epidsode Two may well mean it never gets a mainstream audience in some countries and it isn’t exactly a new idea although the little piles of ash […]

Robin Hood Just Not Right?

Sunday, October 22nd, 2006

I can’t put my finger on it still but after 3 episodes of the new BBC Robin Hood I just don’t find it satisfying. Maybe it’s the anachronisms. Maybe it’s the desire to be modern and relevant to current events. Maybe I prefer my Robin to be a commoner rather than the Robin of Loxley […]

So I was wrong about Captain Jack…

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

I was wrong about Dr Who bringing Captain Jack back despite the character being confirmed for the Torchwood spin off show later this year. Oh well. I’ll have to watch that now to see how they bring him back from being trapped in the future. Still we got an inconclusive fight between Daleks and Cybermen […]

Captain Jack Week?

Saturday, July 8th, 2006

Went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest yesterday. A very good second part to the series with a couple of really outstanding action sequences. Good character development. Interesting twists and turns to the plot see the characters and their allegiances mixed up from the first film to create some interesting new combinations. […]

One Hundred and Fifty First Post

Saturday, June 10th, 2006

By my count this is 151 posts. I still haven’t released my new website but I’ve only 1 page left to go before I can release it into the wild so maybe tomorrow, if I don’t melt overnight, I let it loose. Other than the heat a good day. Chores done. Shopping done. Tomorrow should […]

No Meaningful Thought Here Move Along Please

Sorry absolute state of mentalwipedoutblankblandness syndrome has overtaken my brain. Not even enough grey matter to comment on tonight’s Doctor Who. I’m going to bed.

Are You Sitting Comfortably Then I'll Begin

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

The teaser at the end of tonight’s Doctor Who for next week’s episode, The Idiot’s Lantern, included Maureen Lipman uttering the immortal line from Listen with Mother of "Are you sitting comfortably then I’ll begin". The Doctor used a bit of it at the start of the episode School Reunion. Are they just teasing the […]

Building a Better Krillitane

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

The new Dr Who episode "School Reunion" that was really good. Liked having a villain who got to be nasty and menacing for a little while and who could act. I think there was either a huge story hole or (more likely) a hook for a later story buried in this one too. The Krillitane […]

Too Busy for a Witty Title

Saturday, April 22nd, 2006

I’ve had a pretty productive day. Got up this morning knocked off about half of a section of my new web site showcasing my old web sites. Covered all the personal ones I just need to dig out pictures of the work ones now. The ones that are still under way will be easy but […]
