De rerum Tennentibus

Remarked last night at the Tavern, on Tennant's performance:

"You know how that tabloid reviewer said that Christopher Eccleston looked like he should have a tin bath and a whippet? Well, it seems they've found the whippet."

Doctor Who: Season 2 Review

As promised, there's now a Doctor Who Season 2 Overview on the Kaldor City website, for those who want to know what I thought of it in any detail.

David Maloney

No, I didn't do an RIP for David Maloney. I didn't really think it was right, and after thinking about this for a long time, I realised that it's because when I actually know the guy (and I knew Maloney well enough to go to the funeral), it somehow feels stupid to do a brief "great contribution to society... sorely missed..." thing. Alan did a tribute on the KC page, and I think that's enough for both of us really.
