At last, a companion I take to straight away! I didn't really expect to, but I really liked her! Still can't really see the point in Nardole, but at least he wasn't too annoying. And the Doctor was on top form, fabulously quirky and eccentric and just completely adorable.

Looking forward to the rest of the season, and hoping it will be even better than last year. :-)

I was looking forward to getting to In the Dark in my Angel S1 rewatch and it was just as much fun as I remembered. But the moment it started, I couldn't help thinking of the similiarites with KKBB. Mainly because they both start with James Marsters up on a roof giving us a nice little introduction to his character. And of course because he's basically playing the same part in both of them. Old shag (I would say love but that's not really true in either case) of the leading man - the dark, mysterious, older-than-he-looks leading man - with whom he has a love/hate relationship. Meeting the team and chatting up the girls (Cordy/Tosh/Gwen) and the girls falling for it, even if only briefly. And there's torture in ITD while in KKBB Jack's just got back from the year on the Valiant. Both episodes even end with another rooftop scene and a sunset! (Or is it sunrise in KKBB? I can't remember. Same coloured sky, anyway!)

I know it's nothing deep, but it amused me, and I can't help wondering how much of the mirroring in KKBB was deliberate!

I've started watching Buffy again after a bit of a hiatus, due to the fact that last year I finally (after 8 years) finished my viewing of all seasons in order. The reason that took so long was that at the end of 2005 I became a mother and everything else pretty much went out the window! And also the fact that Buffy was over and I got into the Doctor Who/Torchwood fandom instead (and started writing fanfic and role-playing), so watching Buffy and Angel moved a long way down the list of priorities. But actually, the slow-down was good because it meant that by the time I got to the later seasons of both shows which I hadn't liked so much originally, I really, really enjoyed them.

I loved this. There's just SO MUCH in there! But... there's just so much in there! I kinda wish they'd show these as two-parters so that those of us who can't keep up with Sherlock could have a week in between to assimilate it all and try and work stuff out!

I think I've finally worked out what my problem is with Russell T Davies. It's his belief that drama is only drama if it's on a massive scale. He doesn't get that human drama, the drama of the people we're invested in can be just as epic.

[livejournal.com profile] hellenebright has managed to put what I've been trying to say about CoE into much better words than I've managed: here.

I think I dreamt Avon/Jack slash last night. Unfortunately, I can't remember any of it, except Avon's grating, sarcastic voice in my head (though not the words it was saying).

And I watched (bits of) LotTL again yesterday and how weird is it that it wasn't until this viewing (which must be something like my sixth) that I noticed the big conference table wasn't there in the final scene. I get why, for shooting purposes - nice big space for Martha to walk up, the Master to run down etc. - but I'm curious as to why the Master would have had it removed. It's a pretty big table to get rid of. I don't think it would have fitting through the door and down the corridor!

I've made several comments recently about the fact that Russell T Davies should get himself a canon-checker (or beta reader, as they are sometimes known *g*).

I've got the Doctor (Ten) talking about his TARDIS a lot and I can't for the life of me remember if he normally refers to it as 'it' or 'she'.

Anyone help me, please? :-)

Yes, I've actually managed to tear myself away from my computer long enough to watch some telly :-)

The first of the two-parters. Pretty good stuff.

Just in case there's anyone on my flist who's not already there, [livejournal.com profile] fandom_me is hosting an absolutely fascinating discussion here about the quality (or lack thereof) of fanfiction around here, and what could be done about it.

Definitely a subject close to my own heart! :-)

Nicked off [livejournal.com profile] fandom_me:

One (in any way fandom or writing related) question.
One honest answer.
That's all you get.

You get to ask me one question.
Any one question.
Anything, no matter how crazy it is.
