Blogging Doctor Who, Series 7 [Apr. 6th, 2013|01:48 pm]

(I know, I know, I know; Doctor Who again. I thought I was done with it too ...

But I ain't; in fact, my intention (because working on a full-length book and driving 26 days in March doesn't take up enough of my time) is to blog every god damned episode of Steven Moffat's fershlugginner version of Who.

In order to spare those of you who don't give a damn, I'll keep this entry brief.

  • The teaser is up on here, currently at the top of Rex's front page;

  • The new Series 7 section introduction is here; and

  • the review proper is right here.

One of these days, there will be something personal in this space as well. But not today. (And possibly, a poll: I really wonder how many people on my friends' lists — LJ and DW, but especially Livejournal — still actually pop in to read their lists. Lord knows, few enough of you are posting anymore.)

But for now, I'm off to cross-post, while the Habs game is playing in a small window at upper left. Ciao!.

Still here, still reading. Not always with anything useful to say, but still reading.

I had no doubts about you

As per the subject-line, you're showing enough activity (and we have enough interests in common) that you were on my list of positives.

Twitter, much?

As you might have noticed, that's a platform that has allowed me to opine without actually doing a lot of work. I still read LJ pretty religiously, and spot-check Facebook. Some days I think I catch most of it, other days ... not.

I'm half in agreement with ou about Who. As you've seen, not impressed with the first episode this year, but I really enjoyed the second. Going to watch it again, but rather suspect I'll be giving it a very positive (and probably much shorter, therefore) review.

Of course, Moffat didn't write it.

I'm here! I just don't have many intelligent comments half the time so don't comment much.

Same here

Since there's no "Like" button (and I ain't asking for one, LJ gods!), I too almost always stay silent unless I have something (I think is) useful, insightful or funny to say.

Which means a lot of dead spots ...

Re: Same here

Yeah, if I can't upvote or 'like' something, then there's not much else to say sometimes... which the more I think on it, the more lazy I feel...

Still reading, just not a lot to post about myself - work takes up most of my life at the moment.

You're one of those I was pretty sure of

But you do both post and comment now and again, so I had little doubt you were still here.

Really? All of them!?!

Of course, I don't know whether my "all" or your "whatever series" refers to three programs or 300.

Re: Really? All of them!?!

Weeellll there are lots of authors and creators I won't look at anymore, but lots of my childhood stuff I'll come back to, inadvertently.
