Still no Internet, so here I am in the uni library. [livejournal.com profile] biichan suggested I post my entry to the Big Finish Short Trips competition so it can be linked on the Big Finish Slushpile Masterpost, so here it is.

Finished watching The Chase with Anjilah yesterday. (Today, she declared that she missed Ian and Barbara, despite not having started The Time Meddler yet.) This is where the watching Who in order should get very interesting. I absolutely love the first two seasons, of course, but I'd seen all the stories, I was familiar with the characters, I knew their arcs. Now, unknown territory! Yay!

Also, I would like to note that I kinda loved The Web Planet. )

So, in conclusion, there has been a re-evaluation, an about-face; I now really like The Web Planet and that is great. I am glad to own the DVD, even if I did idiotically buy it just a day or so before VAT decreased from 17.5% to 15%.

I have 13 emails marked as unread in my inbox to remind me to reply to comments. I have nothing tomorrow, whoops, today so should do that later.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Doctor Who!

The TV show, that is, not the character, because that's not his name.

45 today! *huggles the show, everyone involved in making it, everyone who makes fandom more than worth the wank (that's all of you)*

Jen was very surprised that I got a question wrong on a Doctor Who quiz on Facebook. I didn't, the answer was wrong. No, really, it was. Or was it the forty-fifth anniversary of An Unearthly Child back in August and it's like Christmas, our counting's out and has been for ages?

I'm not celebrating, although I would very much like to, because I have eight weeks of reading diary to write, due in at noon two pm tomorrow. It's only PASS/FAIL, not graded, so aiming for the minimum of six, five to go.

As a distraction, short picspam of original Team TARDIS group shots )

Okay, that's far too much procrastination

"Because the very first Doctor was an older man - and he came down to Earth with his granddaughter, Sarah Jane."

From the Digital Spy article linked in today's [livejournal.com profile] who_daily, in which Sylvester McCoy suggests that a great way for the BBC to make it up to Andrew Sachs and his granddaughter would be to give them the part of the Eleventh Doctor and his companion.

Characters: Ian, Barbara, the First Doctor
Rating: PG
Summary: A smudge of ink and the story changes

Notes: This is based upon events in the PDA 'The Time Travellers' and therefore is spoilery for those events. For anyone who hasn't read the book and doesn't mind being spoiled, a couple of lines of context are below the cut so hopefully it will make some kind of sense. Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] livii and [livejournal.com profile] purple_bug for all their help!

Well, I really don't have much to say about The Sound of Drums.

Spoilers, I suppose, although I discuss a couple of concepts from the episode rather than the episode itself )

I'm not sure whether to call this a review. I think not.

ETA: Looking through flist- woe is me, this must be 'fannish disconnect'. Hopefully I will appreciate it more on a second viewing minus family.

Which Doctor (from Doctor Who) Are You?




You are the first Doctor! Oh, you can be a bit cranky, that's true. And your ego can be a bit of a put-off at first. However, underneath that sour demeanor is the heart of a true hero! Your compassion for your fellow beings knows no bounds, and you'd happily sacrifice your life to save another.
Take this quiz!
