magicallaw: (dw: Two/Jamie; and the Doctor seemed to)
Am still steadily making my way through the Two era. Just finished series 5 and more specifically, 'The Wheel In Space' which I loved A LOT. Erm, spoilers... )
magicallaw: (dw: Two; it's how I'm programmed to)
Now, I always thought that I found the Cybermen to be very 'meh', but I keep watching serials with them that I enjoy. I mean, yeah, in The Tomb of the Cybermen they still look bloody ridiculous - perhaps the most ridiculous I've seen them, actually, especially the leader. Of course, at this stage, I'm beginning to think almost everything with Two 'n' Jamie in is pretty fab. My Two tinted spectacles, let me show you them.
magicallaw: (DT: Casanova)
1. I keep thinking I'm going to run into a Troughton serial that I don't like, but it is yet to happen. Okay, so The Faceless Ones sort of... happened, but I didn't hate it and would probably watch again one day. The Evil of the Daleks is really good so far, and I'm only two eps in, so there's not even much Victoria yet. Am very much in love with how gay Two'n'Jamie are.

2. I signed up to [ profile] tardis_bigbang as soon as I saw the sign up post. Prepare for lots of faily posts about me, well, failing at it. There will be Ten and Donna and NO EMO WHATSOEVER. I can't wait to forget about what happened in JE to Donna and just write them being them. Will obviously have Martha in too because I'm that predictable.

3. It is snowing. I don't like snow. I don't care how miserable that makes me sound because people who usually tell me now to be so bloody miserable don't have to walk to work. That will be no fun. Woes.

4. Being Human is on shortly. I can't believe how long it took me to work out where I'd seen the new Annie from (Gridlock). At least it distracted me from thinking about how she isn't Andrea Riseborough. I'm slowly getting over that fact.

My Classic Who watch is still coming on steadily. Had a wee break over Christmas but I'm back into my old routine of watching one serial a week. This week just gone I watched The Moonbase, and I made notes and EVERYTHING. Spoilers )
magicallaw: (Buzzcocks: lesbians mmmmmm)
1. There has been moaning on teh flist about the new LJ profile page. Personally, it really doesn't bother me. However, it appears you're not alone in your dislike (NSFW).

2. GIP. Jack Dee wins at life.

3. I have just watched One regenerate into Two *sadface*. I am looking forward to Two, don't get me wrong, but One was brilliant. He giggled a lot, you see, I have a thing about gigglers I think.

4. Tony Parsons is breaking my heart; I both love him and hate him for being such a brilliant writer. My Favourite Wife is superb and it had me crying on the train home from work the other night. BASTARD.

5. I go watch more West Wing now.
magicallaw: (classic who: the first)
Well, I finished watching Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Not fantastically glowing comments under the cut )

I was also introduced to Ben and Polly via The War Machines, and are more awesome than me, you and pretty much everyone else ever. Yes, I realise I say this everytime I see a new companion, but still, he is cockney and loveable and she is posh and blonde and lovely. Plus, her wardrobe is awesome, as is her hair. I do not covet it as much as Jo's, but that is one fantastic fringe.

I haven't got much of One left to watch now, which is sad, as I love how he giggles at stuff and that. And his voice gets quite high-pitched too. Anyway, that will lead my on to Two and I haven't seen much of him yet so hooray. I hope I can get over my general dislike for recons soon. Eeep.

Am going to watch Friday's HIGNFY on iPlayer now as Mr Smith is presenting and my mum tells me he was fantabulous. It be Tom Baker time soon though. \o/
magicallaw: (classic who: Ian)
I've completed the 500 TV shows in a year challenge. This is a good thing, it has to be. It shows how, erm, much I love telly? IDK. Anyway, I realised the other day that it would have been over a lot sooner if I kept a record of EVERYTHING I've watched but that's just not possible. So, here's the list, but, because I am supposed to be writing fic but have no motivation whatsoever, here is a summary of what exactly it is that I've been watching. Under the cut, of course. )

In conclusion, I need to get out more. Or, you know, not.

So, in a bid to keep me in the house this week and out of the pub, here is a list of things I wish to watch accomplish:

1. Watch Lost in Austen as the Mothership and my flist are telling me it is brilliant. I preferably want to do this before Wednesday when the last episode airs.

2. Finish watching Galaxy 4. I fear this may well be the most difficult as this is the second time I have attempted to watch this serial. Doesn't bode well for the umpteen recons that I have coming up on my Old School watchlist.

3. Work on my [ profile] dw_femslash fic. It's going well so far, actually. I've just left it alone for a bit and it needs some attention.

4. Write a little something for [ profile] doctorwho_100.

5. Finish reading The Eight Doctors. Yes, I totally failed at finishing this week. I'm afraid sleep happened on the train home today and not reading.

6. Begin reading New Moon. PROBLEM?

Erm, that's it I think.

On another telly related note, just how bad was Merlin last night? I saw the first 15 minutes or so but then had to leave. I mean, it had UNEXPECTED WHO CAST MEMBERS (and thanks to the anon meme, I realised that Merlin is actually Jethro from Midnight), but it really didn't save it. Maybe I shall watch it for the lols.

My plan of writing a few hundred words at least of my [ profile] bluesuit_fic fic (yes that makes sense, kthnx) and watching an episode of old Who a night is going rather well. Well, it's only Tuesday and the plan started as of, erm, yesterday but I'm sticking to it, K. I'm watching The Android Invasion which I'm enjoying rather a lot but it needs MOAR HARRY and less Sarah Jane falling over but Four was just lying on top of her and it was a little bit hot.

In terms of writing, I'm confident that this will be the first ficathon fic I've written that I wasn't working hard on the night before it's due (that's me jinxed that then). Should be finished soon which is good and I'm actually happy with it now and, unlike yesterday, I feel as though it doesn't totally suck. PROGRESS, I MAKES IT.

Sarah Jane is limping now so I must pay attention. *goes back to watching Who*
magicallaw: (Teachers: Brian and Kurt)
I am watching Six. Just because fandom tells me that I might not like him and I don't want to have just Six stories left to watch (not that I'm anywhere near watching all of them, because, you know, I have a job and stuff).

It's not that bad, actually, and I am surprised. Well, The Twin Dilemma was, um, there. Attack of the Cybermen is better because it is set in the best scrap yard in the whole entire universe and mentions Jamie and Zoe and Susan and Tegan (I think... I forget who now). Plus Peri is wearing a lot of pink and I like pink. The cybermen are lame as ever BUT I AM NOT HATING IT. YAY ME.

ETA: I should point out that I have seen The Mark of the Rani before, but how can I hate that when it has old school friends bitching at each other?

The Spooks rewatch is going well. Up to 2x10 now and it's quite fun to watch because the Keeley/Matthew is hot like burning. In 2x9, or The One With The Columbians, they are being brother and sister and OMG DLKRHDSANLKSAFSD IT'S SO WRONG TO SHIP STUFF LIKE THAT BUT FUCK ME. But alas, spoilers, I guess )

I also watched Pyramids of Mars today and I wish I had something coherent to say about it. It's perfection in four 25 minute slices really. My Ancient Eygpt kink was more than satisfied. I also think that my Grange Hill watching inner child is going to like any serial with Mr Bronson (Laurence Scarman) in it.

I'm running horrifically late but before I go, I have to say...

The Romans > nearly everything ever.

Snagged from [ profile] settai: When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who on your LJ.

One day, I shall come back, yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

The First Doctor, 'The Dalek Invasion of Earth'.

I chose this quote because I watched this serial for the first time at the weekend and I just thought it was the saddest thing ever. Plus, I then watched that Doomsday vid thing with all the companions leaving and it makes me all emo and stuff. Wah. It's just such a lovely quote, though. Just the perfect grandfather type thing to say, I think.

So, as well as participating in the watchathon/rewatchathon over at [ profile] greenbubblewrap, I've also been making my way through a number of first Doctor serials (OMG IAN FTW). However, thanks to the watchathon, and my mother acquiring a copy of 'The Green Death' on DVD for me, I have fallen in love with Jo Grant, so I've been watching some third Doctor simultaneously. Today I watched 'The Mind of Evil' a small review where in which I don't comment on racial subtext )

Back to more first Doctor now; 'The Reign of Terror' is next.

Also, you shoud check out [ profile] doyle_sb4's Classic Who Serial Love Meme and squee over your fave.

Slight spoilers for Doctor Who Season 17. Yes, you read that right )

It's The Honeymoon next- err, I mean, City of Death. I can't wait to be in my happiest of happy places.

. . . and the sight of Harry Sullivan wearing black combat gear and carrying a rather large weapon has made me come over all unnecessary.

Someone donated Ghost Light to a charity shop. More specifically, the charity shop where my mum works which means I now have said copy in my hands . . . .

magicallaw: (Four - Ooooohhh)
1. Watched Episode 2 of Secret Diary of a Call Girl )

2. Froze my arse off. Twas very cold today.

3. Finally finished watching Robot. Not a particularly great first story for the 4th Doctor. In fact I lol'd at several places for all of the wrong reasons. Well, mainly the effects and hammy acting. And Miss. Winters' glasses. No one can be that evil in glasses like those, can they?

4. Found that you can play old Nintendo games on Facebook, so have been playing Super Mario 3. A LOT.

5. Watched Strictly Come Dancing. Don't like Gabby Logan already. In fact, I never have done.


7. Squeeed at the advert I saw for Spooks. Adam Carter is love.

Your Score: The Fourth Doctor

You scored 21% intelligence, 37% compassion, 45% sense of humor, and 31% weirdness!

Where you're concerned, priority one is having fun. You're not as absent-minded as you look, but you are pretty irresponsible. You would never, say, allow one of your companions to die in a space freighter explosion, but you might let him THINK he's about to die just before you go in and save him. (You know: for shits 'n' giggles.) Your turn-ons include yo-yo mastery, Harry Potter enthusiasts, jellied confections, and strong wine. Your turn-offs include imbeciles, falling rocks, quarries, and radio antennas. Chances are, you're a dog person.

Ha! This is all so fucking true. 4th Doctor FTW!
