I've seen this around a few LJs, but I stole this particular version from [ profile] chloris67

not too many surprises here, I suspect! )

It’s no secret that I've become rather disullusioned with Doctor Who of late. I don't plan to stop watching any time soon, because on some levels, I still enjoy it - I just have to accept that much of what I'm watching is going to be pretty much bereft of decent characterisation and character development and overly concerned with convoluted plots that don't make much sense in the end.

Anyway, that mini-rant isn't the purpose of this post. Instead, I wanted to suggest to any of my fellow fans who are a bit fed up with Moff's version of DW, that they turn their attention towards the work being done by those splendid chaps over at Big Finish.

You are the Fifth Doctor
You are the Fifth Doctor
Take The Doctor Who Personality Test and Horoscope today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You are a kind hearted and somewhat shy person. You love cricket and celery, in that order. You like to walk with big strides and always speak as if you are out of breath. You like to have a large group of friends, some of whom will do nothing but complain, but you always remain civil to them. You will kill a teenager in front of your friends who will resent you for it. You will sacrifice yourself to save some chick with lucious rack.

There are certainly a number of teenagers I'd be tempted to murder on a daily basis! And I'm not sure about the cricket, but I DO like celery ;-)

Despite the almost continuous rain, [ profile] hooloovoo_42 and I had an enjoyable day out in London yesterday. Since our days out consist almost entirely of what I can only liken to a pub crawl, although we substitute "Starbucks" for "pub" - and talking for hours, we didn't do anything exciting, but given that between us, we've got a couple of gammy legs and two bad backs, I think the fact that we actually manage to get anywhere at all is cause for celebration!

caz963: (Much Ado 3)
Yesterday was humid and rather overcast, but in any case, I headed off to London to meet up with [ profile] canterlevi to join her on the first stage of her "operation Fangirl" (!) trip. We nattered a fair bit (surprising, I know!) and then traipsed around Tate Modern, where I duly took the piss out of several installations and pieces of so-called sculpture. I'm such a philistine, but really, what else do you call a piece of "art" that is essentially an irregular octagonal piece of white paper stuck onto a pale grey wall other than I'm sorry - you've missed a bit?!

I tend to prefer paintings.

and then... )
caz963: (DT & CT Much Ado 1)
I seem to have spent much of today looking for things. Not many things, it's true, but I am absolutely anal about knowing Where Things Are. It's horrible sometimes. Kids have toys with lots of bits to them - jigsaw puzzles, dolls' outfits and the like - and I have to hunt like mad for missing bits before I can put them away!

Today, I've been looking for a piece of sheet music that I think would be a good song for Cazlet #1 to learn. I know I've got it but I've looked everywhere I can think of and it's not around. It used to be on the keyboard because Cazlet #2 used to like singing it and I'd (attempt to) accompany her - but it's not there now. (Mr Caz tidies up and I never know what he does with things!) I've looked in the folder I keep my sheet music in - nope. In/on my desk, in the kitchen, on the bookshelves - also nope. And it's driving me bonkers. I can buy it again for just over two quid, but that's not the point!


On the other hand, this icon makes me very happy :-) As do the promo pictures it's made from. It's about time there was more Tennant/Tate awesomeness in the world :-)
caz963: (Eleven sitting TIA)
... but i'm so tired I can't think straight anyway, so I thought I might as well add my crackpot / exhaustion induced theories to the pile.

I watched The Rebel Flesh again the other night and remembered some of the stuff I forgot to put in my original post.

ETA - I refer to the synopsis for ep 7 in this

exhausted DW ramblings this way... )
I'm about to take a nose-dive into the laptop, so I'll stop there although I'm sure I've left something out. I'd love to hear your theories, too - crackpot or otherwise :-)
caz963: (DW allons-y)
Amid all the hoo-ha surrounding the advent of S6 of DW on telly, I had a chance to listen to a few more Eighth Doctor audios while I was on Easter hols. As with the ones I've already heard, the last lot I’ve listened to are a mixed bunch, including a couple of blinders, something that should have been awesome (and sadly wasn't) and something I didn't really care for at all.

cut for rambling and spoilers for several EDAs )
caz963: (DT in Red smile)
Time for a picspam! This didn't start out as a "birthday" picspam because I've had it on the go for a while but... er, time kinda ran away with me and I couldn't get my arse into gear to finish it. And as I won't be around on Monday to post it, it's still not technically a birthday picspam. But is anyone going to quibble about that when there's so much pretty on display?

Thought not.

I admit, it took me a while to come up with a theme for this one. I could just have posted lots of random sexiness, but then I'd have been here all week, so in the end I came up with this. One of the things that always comes at or near the top of the list when I’m considering what I find attractive about a bloke is “a nice smile”.

Well, obvious connection is obvious ;-) Many’s the time that thousand-watt-grin has brightened up a crappy day, so here, in one handy helping is probably the world’s greatest pick-me-up.

And just for the hell of it, and because I might just be the teeniest bit obsessed with his bottom lip, there are some pics in here to which my initial reaction is pretty much always – MOUTH.

So without further ado, I present to you (a selection of) The Many Smiles, Smirks, Grins and Pouts of David Tennant.

WARNING: Prolonged staring at this picspam could be dangerous to your ... oh, who the hell cares?! )

I always have the feeling that I should Be Doing Something when I'm on school holidays. I managed to get the bulk of my planning done before the end of term, I finished my marking earlier in the week and all I've got left are a few odds and sods. The girls are at my mum's so Mr Caz and I have been doing stuff we've been meaning to do for ages - he's ripped out the bathroom carpet and put down tiles instead, we've been out and bought some odds and ends, got some dry cleaning done, took my watch to the repairers...

For the last couple of hours I've been sitting here wasting time on teh intertubez. I don't do tumblr (and tbh, have no idea what it is really!) but I stumbled across a link to something there which amused me and then wasted even more time by following other links... you know how it is.

There's a comm (I think) called Time and Relative Dimensions in Space which has some excellent DW related posts. I don't know what the reposting etiquette is, but here's some of the things I found to pass the time. I hope crediting that particular tumblr is sufficient - if I've done it wrong, please let me know and I'll correct it.

I told myself that I wasn't going to get too involved in all the spoilery speculation about Doctor Who this year. Last year there was all the stuff about Jacket!Doctor, the identity of the baddie, who - really - is River? - and countless other threads which, while fun, also made my head ache.

There are also spoilers in comments.

Spoilers! )

On another subject - I believe normal userpic service will be resumed as soon as possible :(
caz963: (DT heart)
If this is true (and makes the final cut) I'm not going to survive looking at the publicity photos, let alone the actual film!

Thanks to [ profile] develish1 for the link.

... into a not so crappy one.

First of all - this )

And secondly - To the Death is out a couple of weeks early!

I've pretty much mainlined all of Big Finish's "new" Eighth Doctor Adventures over the last few weeks, and I listened to Lucie Miller last night. I was Mrs Grumpypants today, thinking I'd have a couple of weeks to wait for the finale, but no - it's out today. Squee!

I've been writing a (long) post about the fact that I've finally got around to listening to some of BF's stuff. I've been meaning to get to it for a couple of years, and I'm very glad I finally have. I've only scratched the surface of what they do, as my listening so far has (mostly) been confined to the Eight and Lucie stories, but once I've finished with those, I've got a long list of other things I want to listen to.

Recommendations always appreciated!
caz963: (DW angel)
Blink was on telly last night, and as a result the girls wanted to watch the S5 Angels two-parter.

What do you know of the Weeping Angels? )
caz963: (Ten leaves WoM)
Things like this tend to happen when I'm at home ill, because I get more time to think than normal. So I'm sure you'll be glad to know that I'm on the mend and will be returning to work shortly!

I read a blog post the other day (sorry, but I can’t remember where it was), the subject of which was Ten things we love about Russell T Davies’ Doctor Who.

And it reminded me that I’ve been meaning to do something similar for ages. Though he left Doctor Who more than a year ago, there’s no denying that RTD left his mark on British telly in more ways than one – although DW is, of course, the best known and biggest dent!

But there are a couple of non-DW things I wanted to mention because they made a real impression on me, so they're in here as well.

I struggled with putting these in order – and decided in the end that it’s impossible. So without further ado – and in no particular order –

Ten Things For Which I Will Always be Grateful to Russell T Davies.

lots of fannish rambling under the cut )
caz963: (DW Ten coat)
Having seen and been inspired by the housekeeping posts made by some of my f-listees, I thought I should probably have a look through all the fandom-related rambling I did in 2010 and see if it warranted organising. To my surprise, there was quite a lot of it.

Here, then are the thinky-thoughts, reviews, picspams, fanfic and meta that I posted last year:

Doctor Who )
Other Telly )
Fandom-related memes )
Picspams. Mostly David Tennant centric! )
Fanfiction )
caz963: (42 specs)
My copy of the OST to S5 of Doctor Who arrived on Monday and I've been meaning to say something about it - I just haven't had a lot of time.
