Still :-(

There have been so many heartfelt, eloquent tributes to Lis Sladen today that are still bringing a lump to my throat. I told the girls the sad news this morning and they were as stunned as I was, my eldest especially.

Anyway, I've been fiddling around instead of doing anything useful and before I head off to rewatch School Reunion for the umpteenth time, thought I'd stop fiddling and just post something.

Sarah-Jane's Greatest Moments... well, some of them.

I've been away for a couple of days and haven't had a chance to catch up with anything yet, but I've just opened up my LJ to read the incredibly sad news about the death of Lis Sladen.

I'm completely stunned.

Sarah-Jane Smith was MY companion - we all have "our" Doctors and our favourite companions, and she was, without a doubt my favourite when I was a kid and I think I probably squealed like a banshee when she returned to our screens in 2006, first of all in Doctor Who and then later with her own spin-off show.

I don't know what else to say right now - other than to express my sorrow and my sympathy for her friends and family.

Goodbye, Lis. We won't forget you.

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 )

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 )

It occurs to me that I haven't posted much about anything other than work lately.

time for a telly round-up )

It is entirely possible that I am more excited about this than I am about the new series of DW.

Spoilers! )
