TV EYE: Doctor Who, week 13: ‘Last of the Time Lords’

I’m late on the bandwagon, but having spent much longer than I expected talking about the ups and downs of New Who, I couldn’t possibly leave Season 3 without sticking my oar in on the Season Finale. My coverage of next year might be considerably sketchier, though, for reasons which may soon become apparrent. Fear the spoilers…

Another day, another dollar, another Who episode that leaves me shaking my head and asking ‘For god’s sake… WHY?!?’

TV EYE: Doctor Who, Week 11: Utopia

Thanks to a holiday, I’m going to miss the Season 3 climax– a scheduling snafu that wouldn’t have happenned if it hadn’t been for the godforsaken hell that was Eurovision. Hey ho. I’ll still be doing a final wrap-up, just over a week later when everyone else will have moved onto other things. Anyway, it’s week 11, Russell T. Davies is firmly back in the driver’s seat, and John Barrowman has elbowed his way into the main credits of the series. It’s ‘Utopia’, and fear the spoilers…

‘Receive my majesty!’

Hard to Make a Stand

I’m on Facebook. Good golly.

Elsewhere, life has been somewhat non-stop busy, hence the lack of blogging. I spent a large proportion of last week doing sub-editing, including a session at a magazine where I spent 70% of my time sat doing nothing. Being paid 12 pounds an hour to do that is fun for a while, but it quickly palls.

Energy is at a serious low. Most of the weekend has been spent in rather a funk, increased by the fact that I’ve got a tremendous amount of work to do. In seven days, I’ll be vanishing off to France for two weeks on a family holiday, and there’s a lot to do in the interim. Most of all, I have to pull myself out of the productivity slump I’m in at the moment.

There will be some more detailed blogging soon. For now, it’s time to slump in the corner…
