Bit of a mess.

It's fine. You're doing fine. Just stay calm.


There's always a bit left over, isn't there?  We're all stories in the end...  Doctor who?  

So let me get this straight.

Has anyone listened to “Second Chances”? I really want to but I don’t know if I can. : (

Second Chances is great, although quite bleak. Zoe really goes through the wringer, emotionally and physically, and it’s sort of an epic season finale for her. The script is clever - just when you think you can see what’s coming, things take a turn for the worse and everything fits into place. It has a thoughtful tone, reflecting on the theme of whether you can really get a second chance at fixing what went wrong in the past.

Christ, I’m so glad I got out of the habit of going on a big whinge about whatever nonsensical talking points wanky Doctor Who fans are harping on lately. I did WAY too much of that in the olden days. I mean I still whinge sometimes but not as often. I think mostly because I’ve weaned myself off of plumbing the #doctor who tag for things to get annoyed at.

I went repeatedly through all my phone photos of the sky over Brownes Beach, Barbados, looking for one that I could artistically title “Death in Heaven” (after the eerie leaked DW episode title that I also did an un-amazing graphic of). I went with this one because it looks like a faint distorted figure is falling over in that really bright patch.

The covers for the Twelfth Doctor’s first three novels, Silhouette, The Blood Cell, and The Crawling Terror, have been revealed. The books will be available on Amazon 11 September.

Bit late on this, but good lord. Capaldi’s face was made for book covers. I’m not being funny here. They’re pretty well designed covers in their own right, but Capaldi’s face is like some kind of incredibly punchy illustration. He brings a new level of impact to it just by being there. Part of me wants these books just to ogle the covers.

I’m two parts into Breaking Bubbles & Other Stories. (I know the last one, the Curious Incident pastiche by Nev Fountain, is supposed to be phenomenal so I’m very excited.) These are really flying past, Breaking Bubbles was fairly simple and Of Chaos Time The felt like it was over in half the time.

The latter had a quite great element in the use of the Doctor (Sixie)’s internal monologue, something you don’t always tend to hear since the Doctor’s mind is usually presented as a bit unfathomable. I was wondering how they’d even do the “Doctor gets jumbled up in his own chronology” but the way you get to hear what he’s actually thinking, while he’s pretending to the others that he knows wtf’s going on, is dead clever.

I have to remark on Peri at the end of Breaking Bubbles. Not to spoil anything specific, but she outright - passionately - confronts someone over their morals and manages to convince them. It’s a small and not massively dramatic story but it just struck me how powerful Peri was there. If there’s some sort of ranking of which Classic companions have been the most lovingly treated or expanded by Big Finish, Peri has to be up there, top 5 surely. (I think Sara Kingdom would be in the top 10 somewhere just based on the mindblowing Home Truths trilogy.)

Regarding that Capaldi quote - a focus on the drama side with longer scenes between characters, more gravity and less spectacle is pretty much exactly what the show needs.

We still blow a lot of shit up. That’s very important, but it’s going to be a bit different from what we’ve seen over recent years. A bit more gravity. Some situations are more sombre and I think there are more rooted dramatic scenes. Over the past two or three years, which I’ve loved, there has often been a breathless vigour; we still have that attack, but we have another level of drama, another tone. And the scenes are longer.

On how the series will be different from before.

The Widow’s Assassin

Once, long ago, in a land of monsters and corridors, a fair maiden was captured, and placed in a deep sleep.

She was used to being captured, and she had a hero who rescued her on just such occasions. But this time the hero never came.

And the fair maiden slept on.

Eventually, a King rescued the maiden, and made her his bride, which many wise old women might that tell you is just another way of capturing fair maidens.

And still the fair maiden slept on.

Then, the hero had another stab at rescuing the maiden from her prison, but he was too late. And, more importantly, he had forgotten the rules of fairy tales.

He didn’t slay the dragon.
