{February 21, 2012}   The Promise of Geek Paradise

Ok, my plan for the week became a bit more complicated yesterday with the advent of possible BBC work experience and confusions about certain technicalities in Doctor Who lore, so the short story project is being put on hold until next week when I’ll actually have a clue what I’m talking about – and the time to talk about it. When that time comes round, I promise you this:

  • 1 instalment daily for 7 days, leading to a story of over 3,500 words (each ‘episode’ at least 500 words).
  • Each ‘episode’ will be published at 7:00 daily, so you can enjoy it like the TV show.
  • An intrigue-packed story including the Eleventh Doctor, an original companion called Lyra and a Haunted House with lots of locked doors.
  • Will try to have 1 accompanying sketch per instalment.
  • With 1 blog afterwards explaining the experience with a music playlist. Like Doctor Who Confidential.

In other news, I’ve nabbed myself a tour around the TARDIS (*skips away in joy before anyone can ask questions*)


{January 15, 2012}   A Holmesian Dilemma

How do you go about showing off some brilliance of yours if you hate spoilers with a passion and it means revealing a spoiler? Ugh. Then of course, the only way I can reveal it without revealing the spoiler is by shutting up until the show-runners reveal it themselves, but then I can hardly get any credit for revealing something that’s just been revealed. Unlike Holmes though, I don’t have enough confidence in my abilities to write down my almost perfectly assured theory into how it was all pulled off to seal it in an envelope and give it to a third party. I must kill this fear of failure. I’ll say it again: I’m a cowardly lion.

May give my family an envelope later. At least once these ideas have had some more time to ferment.

I loved it anyway. This particular episode was much better than the film… Watch this site if you happen to care about my opinion on which of the new Sherlocks is the best. The answer may surprise.


Just saw ‘The Holiday’ before Sherlock. Jude Law’s head seemed wider in that. The Watson role makes him look better than modern him. Kudos to him for making a beardless moustache work.

{September 28, 2011}   Today Is A Sad Day

They cancelled Doctor Who Confidential.

They say it’s to cut costs.

Wandering around a set with a camcorder costs NOTHING. Please BBC3, if you’re going to axe anything on your channel, let it be Lee Nelson’s Well Shit Show, or that Great Movie Mistakes thing that Robert Webb voices. You could re-allocate Rob’s talents elsewhere and make something that is actually enjoyable, or even good.

Also if it helps Doctor Who, you know I’ll work for free, right?
