"The Eleventh Doctor"

I’m really enjoying the recent revival of the Doctor Who series. David Tenant was, IMO, the best Doctor by a country mile, and several of his episodes instantly stood out as classics. Admittedly I only came on board with the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker, who is my second fave). One of the things that stood out for me with the Ninth and Tenth Doctor was the quality of the writing and acting. Stephen Moffat episodes in particular stand out (The Empty Child / Doctor Dances, Girl in the fireplace, and the frankly matchless Blink), so I was quite excited when […]

This morning’s score was 76kg, which is the lowest it’s been since I started records (the highest being 82.5, not far off January’s […]

I haven’t really got anything to say, but it’s something like 6 weeks since I last posted anything up, which feels like a bit of a poor show. I guess the exciting topic around at the moment is British politics. Extraordinary (and very encouraging IMO) developments in the political world. I have to say I was disheartended by the Tory majority. I am a significant distance away from Conservative policies, and I thought another Tory government would be disasterous for the country as a whole. At present, I’m eating my words. I’m stunned that David Cameron has so effectively and […]
