I'm going to see Doctor Who Live in November!
Here on the Beeb. Also here on YouTube, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] calapine for the link.

That's two good reasons to look forward to Easter. (The other being coffee.)
For the first time since New Who came back, I am not feeling bereft on the first Saturday after it finished.

To be fair, I have been a little distracted this week. Or perhaps I'm turning into an adult. Or a mundane? Oh noes!

Go to YouTube and search for Dalek Masterpiece Theatre. I think the best one is this one, but the cover version of the Wurzels is lolarious too.
Oh please let this be true!

An episode by Gneil would be beyond brilliant.
So. Latest cracked-out speculation for DW S4.

DO NOT WANT. I mean, what's the point? Sadly, I suspect Team Cardiff may think this the best concept since sliced bread.

Christmas is going very well so far, with only one minor kerfuffle. The haul is quite satisfactory; as well as clothes, I have the stuffed owl toy I mentioned yesterday, a wooden owl ornament, chocolates, coloured sketching pencils, Miles, Mutants and Microbes (it's lovely to have a book where the print doesn't smudge. I wonder if it's worthwhile to replace Young Miles, Mirror Dance and Memory with hardbacks.), and something that [livejournal.com profile] elerrina_amanya forgot to order from amazon until after the deadline.

The dinner is cooking, we have watched the Queen and sorted out videotapes for Voyage of the Damned and Shrek 2, went for a short walk, I have picked at a jigsaw with some help from [livejournal.com profile] elerrina_amanya, and now I'm catching up on LJ and browsing Yuletide. sadly there are too many fics to read before dinner, which is meant to be in five minutes.

In today's 'Oi, Rusty, nooo!' news:

Ever heard of Godwin's?.

Asked who from the past would he [RTD] would most have liked to play the role [of the Doctor], he replied: “Hitler. He was stern and strong. He would be great.”

Just...take the programme away now, plz?

Doctor Who Christmas story by Paul Cornell. Very cute!

So apparently Rusty said that the Doctor is messianic or something. Oi, Rusty, just stop now, please?

Skinny idiot! Decorative vegetable! The back of our head! Brainy specs! Two minutes to Belgium!

Has anyone else noticed that the transition bits between series and specials, and now this, seem to involve David Tennant repeatedly going "What?!" He has about four different inflections, too.

Okay, I expect that I'm really behind the fair on this, but is anyone else vastly amused that Kylie's releasing a song called 'Two Hearts' just before she appears on Doctor Who?
I'm sure by now everyone has seen this.

DW Specials possible spoilers )
I'm sure all of us have seen this by now.

I'm not sure what to think.

owl: Martha Jones is interested (martha2)
I read a fic at the weekend set in the last scene of Last of the Time Lord, with the Doctor thinking that he can never say 'I love you' to anyone, and now I can't find it. It was posted quite soon after the finale. Anyone recognise it?
I am rather chuffed to notice that Children of Hurin has made the Tesco's value books list. A mythological tale by an author who's been dead for 30 years. I suppose it might be the incest factor.

I happened to be in the children's section of Waterstone's the other day and the done thing is to cash in on Harry Potter—2/3 of the books are about magic. Hardly an issue novel in sight. This started me thinking a bit: loads and loads of children's fantasy, but very little children's sf. Are children just not considered capable of understanding enough science to make it worthwhile?

A couple of quick recs:

[livejournal.com profile] matril ponders common complaints about the SW prequels.

Back to Where You Once Belonged, DW fic by [livejournal.com profile] sensiblecat. One of the best fics I've read about the Doctor and Martha stranded in 1969. Just enough angst, and a great Martha.

And then came 1969, and suddenly there was absolutely no money, and more time than they knew what to do with.
