Disappointments

I’ll Explain Later

Ah, technobabble. Also known as ‘phlebotonin’ if you’re a writer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m sure that to the casual viewer, all technobabble is equal.

Back and Forward

Two seasons of the new Doctor Who down. I thought I’d share three of my favourite moments of the past season, and my three top hopes for season three. Actually, let’s say four. I’ve got too many.

Fandom, You’re Dead to Me

I had a moment on the train today that warmed the very cockles of my Who fan heart. A skinny little kid on the train was reading Doctor Who novels and trying to interest a cute schoolgirl in them.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Sith?

I apologise for the steady stream of Doctor Who reviews, to all of you who don’t give a rat’s arse.

Subtle Differences

Don’t panic. My weblog has not eaten all the other ones. I know it looks like that, but it’s only because I haven’t made a new graphic and chosen a name for this, the new group grapefruit weblog.

Mostly Harmless

What is it with Physics undergraduates and bad “Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything” jokes? It’s like they think if they just mention ‘42’ in any given sentence, it suddenly becomes funny…

Trailer

Well, the marketing campaign for Doctor Who has started in Britain, and a bunch of teaser trailers have been released. Here’s a few screengrabs, posted mainly because Billie Piper is looking good but also coz the new console room is in the background.

Self Control

So, apparently, a rough-ish cut of the first episode of Doctor Who is out online somewhere.

Books

Hey, look! We have a books section on Grapefruit finally! Though of course I’ve only reviewed a Doctor Who book, so it’s nothing particularly impressive.
