One great thing about never watching TV is that I can watch both parts of a Dr. Who story back to back on iPlayer. None of this 'tune in next week' rubbish.
The Silence were a good idea even if they did dress like bankers and had faces like Harriet Harman before makeup. Damn, I have just sent out a novel I first drafted five years ago that uses the idea of memory-loss caused by the monster. I really must get my act together on those stories. Apparently viewers are turning away from the new Dr. Who series because it's scary and complicated. Well I like scary and complicated.
Tonight's serious post went into the Orphans of Liberty queue and will no doubt appear at some point. It talks of something scary and complicated too.
Meanwhile, if you want a taste of scary and complicated, look at the new fine-income scam that pretends it has something to do with litter and just watch the suckered-in drones agree. They don't think it will ever affect them. One of them even thinks that cigarette ash is the worst form of litter, and that's one of the top-rated posts! There's not much that's scarier than human stupidity.
The Dr. Who monsters have nothing on our government. I'd feel safer if Davros was in charge.
But then, I'd fit in a Dalek. You'd know which one was me. It would be the one with smoke coming out of it.
