    Peter Davison's new autobiography sounds rather jolly. Tom Baker's autobiography will be hard to top, but I expect Peter knows as well as anybody what it's like trying to follow Tom. #

    Power of the Daleks recon was about as painful as expected. Lots of lengthy pauses, where clearly lots of non-verbal actor-stuff was going on, lovingly "reconstructed" in the form of cardboard cutouts wobbling from side to side in silence for no apparent reason. #

    @tregeagle I think so, just to fly the flag. I'm not into the reconstructions. I know I'll be frustrated by not actually seeing Troughton's performance, which is too animated for animation to reproduce. #

    Been watching some 70s # A story I don't care for, by a writer I actively dislike, but still I'm compelled to see the next episode. In a pinch, craft trumps art. 21st century "showrunners" wielding "story arcs" should take heed.

    It would be a crime if we couldn't get Sean Pertwee into a frilly shirt, velvet jacket, cape, wig, and of course Bessie. #

    I can't believe Peter Capaldi doesn't have a blog. I thought he'd be all over that. (Last pic is from The Love Child, a mental film from 1987: #
