Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My Dreamwidth is mostly for fic, recs, icons, vids and fannish nonsense & fic/vids/icons etc. generally remain open. I'm terribly obscure and multi-fannish, but generally happy to make new friends.

My fic:
lost_spook on AO3
vvj5 at A Teaspoon and An Open Mind (the Doctor Who archive)

My vids:
lostspook1 at YouTube

Current & Past Prompt tables etc: apocabingo card | genprompt_bingo card (Round 11) | Historical for [community profile] who_allsorts | Hurt/Comfort Bingo Card (Round 8) | 100 Element Prompts | Shakespeare Plays Watched.

Notes on permission: Any remixes etc. based on fanworks of mine are fine - go ahead, and do let me know; I'd be thrilled. And, obviously, credit is nice. No posts made here to be reproduced elsewhere, thanks. If you wish to link to any open posts, of course, please do so!


Friending: New friends are always welcome, but if you'd like me to friend you back and we haven't previously interacted, please drop a comment here so I know who you are, otherwise I'll assume that you merely wanted to add my public entries to your reading circle.

I finished this recently (alas!) and I enjoyed it all. There were some duff episodes and things, but overall it was pretty great and a fun, cheering thing to be watching, and as it's an ITC thing, it should be reasonably accessible, or at least more so than most of my ancient British things.

I'll make a proper post about it, but I went YouTube hunting and came back with these, which I think give a pretty good idea about what it's like:

So, that was an enjoyable show for the summer! I will do a proper intro post sometime.

I haven't talked much about Doctor Who, because I tend to enjoy it and find that enjoyment often diminished by discussion, especially in circles that are more negative about Twelve and Steven Moffat than my heart will ever be, but I have indeed been watching and enjoying and loved the finale very much. Anyway, here are some related fanworks I have also enjoyed:


[personal profile] purplefringe has already made a Bill fanvid & it is a truly lovely thing, you will be unsurprised to hear.


[personal profile] selenay has been writing a series of Bill episode tags (for the first few eps, so far) and they're just great. I was trying to think which one in particular to rec, but, really, they're all great.


And, via [personal profile] eve11, who clearly has the best taste in fic:

Love, That Loosener of Limbs by amatalefay (G, 253 words. Bill Potts/Sappho, Twelve.)

“Like, finally here's a poem that isn't just some bloke whining about how a beautiful girl won’t give him sex, and it's basically ‘sweet mother, I’m too gay to do my chores, blame Aphrodite’. Like, honestly? Most relatable thing I’ve read in years.”

Bill meets Sappho.


Tiny but perfect. <3

And The Last Age Should Show Your Heart by Quanna. (G, 1854 words. Missy, brief mentions/cameos of others.)

The Doctor saves the Master, one final time, and gives her the universe to look after in his place.

A post 'the Doctor Falls' AU in which the Doctor dies, and the Master goes on; without hope, without witness, without reward.


What it says; really clever and sharp and a great thing to read following The Doctor Falls.


(I hope you can tell that this is not the sort of post where you tell me things you dislike about DW. If that's what you'd like to do, I recommend instead going to [community profile] who_at_50 instead which is great for proper discussion, squee, grumbling and all the usual sorts of reactions. Consider that my final rec for the day. ;-p)

1. [community profile] fic_corner is still taking nominations, for those who are interested!


2. A couple of months ago, I tried to rec a B5 vid, All Is Not Lost, but the link had died - but the vidder kindly let me know that it's now back, so let me attempt to rec it again (probably a repeat rec anyway, but always worthwhile) - see here.


3. Another vid which I just saw this morning: an amazing Minerva McGonagall vid.


(I feel like there have been more things I meant to link to lately, but that is all for now.)
lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
A few more bits and pieces before I get back to nicer things (and what a week, everyone, :-/), like those ficlets I owe people:

1. Judging by some of the comments I think I wasn't clear in my last post (as ever), here's the thing: I had a think and changed my mind about everything ever and so am going to be mainly based on Dreamwidth from now on because a) enough has happened to make me feel uncomfortable about supporting LJ by giving them any more money (at the very least) and b) the only way to deal with the stress/upset induced by regular LJ apocalypses is to lose it on my own terms and in the most positive way possible - by putting something in its place. I think not something better than LJ as-it-was, because those times have gone, but, feeling like a person who has finally woken up, I hope maybe better than LJ as-it-is now, and that would be something. Why not be quixotically optimistic, I suppose?

But I'm still cross-posting and keeping any commitments I've made, and if I do anything drastic, it would only be to switch off commenting this side to try and break the habit, and nothing more yet (or not without very good reason; I reserve the right to change my mind as often as I need). (Turns out that when it comes to going down with the ship, I want the ship to be fully worth it, and I'm not all that keen on drowning after all.) It will take some work, because the only way to make a proper network is investing in some of the active comms and things like that, though, and that will no doubt swallow many of my online spoons (there's a weird metaphor), so I will no doubt be a little quieter LJ-side as a result, but I've no intention of losing touch with people.

If I don't have you over here already, then please do friend me, or tell me where to find you. I'm aware I was kind of putting my head in the sand all the last few times we went through this, so I probably have still missed out some people.


2. Picked from multiple people in the scuffle, and this is nifty even if you only use your Dreamwidth account occasionally - you can claim your open ID (if you want) and then it magically connects up any of your imported comments on your own or other journals with your actual account. (It was no trouble to do, so I thought I'd pass that on.)


3. I don't know what I'll do in May - Apocabingo or O&B or what. We'll see how the world, online and offline is, or maybe my b'day plans will involve collapsing somewhere and being quiet, online at least. (Offline, my two actual rl bffs are coming to see me at the same time, or they should be. *crosses everything*)


4. Last but certainly not least, I was flipping through my bookmarks for vids this morning, and was reminded of this and it feels like a very good vid for this week. It's my favourite Babylon 5 vid I've seen, so let's end with a positive:

All Is Not Lost (follow the links to watch via download. It's worth it, I promise. I'm pretty sure I've recced it before, but a good thing is always worth as many more recs as it needs.)
(ETA: Alas, it seems the links have broken!)


(Hopefully, as of next post, normal babbling and fannish service will be resumed!)

Festivids

lost_spook: (cat)
If you're looking for some good things, Festivids has gone live!

I don't take part in it, but I watch enthusiastically from the sidelines every year - it's like Yuletide, but for vids, and it's generally pretty amazing and you're fairly safe to find at least one stunning vid for a fandom you didn't expect (and usually more).
lost_spook: (b7 - deva)
It seems to be a Red Letter Day today. First off, Happy Birthday to:

[livejournal.com profile] meneleth, [livejournal.com profile] rosiedlotrfan, [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride, [personal profile] whuffle, and (last but very much never the least) [personal profile] aralias! May you all have a wonderful time (and curses on the heads of all those who combine b'day and Christmas presents (well, unless they're really good ones))!


However, as at least three of them know only too well, it's also B7's Gauda Prime Day. *removes non-existent hat*

I've posted these two things before, including last year, but it only feels right to post them again now, because 2016. The vid is spoilery (as ever), but the meta is not. It's also short and I really do recommend taking a look, even if you don't know Blake's 7. Because 2016.


The Cave (S4 Vid by elviaprose).

Another Man's Freedom Fighter by The_Dancing_Walrus (G, 929 words. Meta.)


(For those who don't understand: I once wrote a non-spoilery guide to Blake's 7. It won't explain, because spoilers, but at least you know what I'm on about in the more general terms. Creaky old TV, as ever, in the even shorter version.)

I love that of all my fandoms, only two of them have a special day attached and one of them is an anniversary that's all about joy and hope and ridiculousness, and the other is... well, Gauda Prime Day. But sort of oddly bleakly hopeful anyway, I think.

My now-regular Thursday feature! (We'll see how long this lasts. ;-p)

1. For some reason I'd been feeling a bit down the last couple of days, but you know what is always at least a little bit cheering at such moments? Multi-era Doctor Who fanvids. I was cheering myself with Marching On by xxdrosexx and then wondering why I didn't have any yet that went up to Twelve, so I went looking, and found this, which is also great:

Cut for embed )

Because Doctor Who is, after all, that great big improbable and ridiculous thing of joy and monsters. :-)


And I'm continuing to enjoy watching (or reading) from the sidelines as the Public Call fics get revealed, so here's two more good ones:

2. A Taste of Home by dbskyler (G, 1784 words. Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan.) Sarah, the Doctor, and home. Lovely glimpse of some 'missing scenes' from Terror of the Zygons.


3. Side Quest by annariel (G, 6388 words. Harry Sullivan, Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith.) Harry is collecting equipment for the Doctor when he runs into an adventure of his own. Can he foil the evil Dr. Richards, while at the same time helping the Doctor and Sarah fend off an alien invasion they somehow never quite have the time to explain properly to him? Excellent missing adventure, with Harry getting to prove his worth.


4. The Terrible Doom That Came To Honeysuckle Cottage by Psychomachia (Teen, 2592 words.) There's a saying old says that love is blind
Still we're often told, seek and ye shall find
So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind.
One of the best and funniest fics to come out of last year's Yuletide: the Cthulhu Mythos meets P.G. Wodehouse's Honeysuckle cottage. (Definitely a don't-need-to-know-canon fic.)


5. By Wise Council You Shall Make Your War by beer_good_foamy (Teen, 722 words. Edmund Blackadder, George Colthurst St. Barleigh, Baldrick, Bob. Crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) In each generation, a Slayer is born. She alone will stand against the etc etc. In 1917, that was a young woman named... um... Bob? Good thing the Watcher's Council have an auxiliary member already in place in the trenches. What it says, oh yes, oh yes. :-D
lost_spook: (cat)
My currently regular Thursday feature...

OUaT: Browned Butter by awanderingbard (G, 1956 words. Emma Swan/Killian Jones, Snow White, Regina Mills, Henry Mills.) It's Storybrooke's first Thanksgiving, and Emma is finding trying to be a domestic goddess more difficult than she anticipated. Sweet and funny, with Emma battling to do something impressive on the domestic front.


Miss Marple: Advice From Aunt Jane by DesertVixen (Teen, 1212 words. Miss Marple, Dolly Bantry, Jane Helier.) Jane Helier needs some advice from Miss Marple and Dolly Bantry Pitch perfect conversation between the three, picking up on threads from The Thirteen Problems.


Doctor Who: At Last a Dragon by paranoidangel (All ages, 985 words. John Chesterton, Tenth Doctor.) John Chesterton doesn't believe in Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy or the Doctor. John Chesterton finally realises that all the stories his parents told him were real. Lovely.


Heroes: Drive My Car by Andraste (Hiro & Ando, Hiro/Ando.) "Our life of legend begins!" Great, fun vid for S1 Hiro & Ando.


Diana Wynne Jones: World Enough, and Time by jamjar (PG, 5408 words. Erskine, Hathaway, Torquil, Awful, Howard, Catriona.) The journey of a thousand miles (starts with sending your siblings to Alpha Centauri). Perfect capturing of the novel's tone, with the remaining siblings starting to both mend their ways and move about more freely.

Even more random than last week. I was going to pick the five previous bookmarks to last week, but they were all to do with my Fourth Doctor recs post, so I thought I'd better mix it up a bit more than that:

The Good, the Bad, and the Hovercrafts by eponymous_rose (All ages, 1814 words. Fourth Doctor, Romana I, K9.) In which various alien entities get held off at the pass, the Doctor and Romana take up jogging, and K-9, to everyone's horror, tells a joke. Lovely, light, humorous piece.


Hourglass by giandujakiss (Multi-fandom timeloops.) And, indeed, need I say more than 'multifandom timeloops vid'?


The Way Back by Meadowlark (All ages, 3942 words. First Doctor, Steven Taylor.) After witnessing the Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve, Steven is disillusioned with life with in the TARDIS and vows to give it up. But when he's compelled to stay, the Doctor offers him an unexpected olive branch. Pitch-perfect fic to round out why Steven chooses to stay after all.


The Doctor Meets a Fantastic Beast by Kass (G, 892 words. Eleventh Doctor, Newt Scamander, Amy Pond, Rory Williams.) The Doctor and his companions meet Newt Scamander. Cute crossover with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.


Soft Jaws, Strong Bite by nonelvis (All ages, 2141 words. Twelfth Doctor/Romana II.) A brief and heartwarming story about the Doctor, Romana, space pirates, and the universe's greatest children's show about prehistoric reptile cyborgs. What it says, and also with bonus pirates.
lost_spook: (cat)
I was feeling a bit down and so thought of doing this as maybe an occasional thing: here are five nice things I've bookmarked recently:

Third Time Pays For All by JohnAmendAll (G, 922 words, Lucy Weston/Mina Harker/John Seward.) Lucy had been vaguely expecting a confession of a clandestine love affair between her fiancé and her best friend. The truth was far stranger.

Written for me in a recent meme, this is a lovely Dracula TV 1968 fic from the prompt Lucy/Mina/John & timeloops.


Appropriately enough, two very excellent DW fics from the [livejournal.com profile] who_at_50 53rd Anniversary Fanworkathon:

The Scientific Method by nonelvis (Teen, 1723 words. Implied Liz/Brig; Liz/Kate Stewart) Five moments in the life of Elizabeth Shaw. Liz, being awesome as ever.

An Offer You Can't Refuse by Shivver (All ages, 4959 words.) Trying to recover an ailing population's stolen medical supplies, the Doctor and Ace come up empty when the smuggler's trail goes cold. Great missing adventure for Seven & Ace (never an offer I can refuse, that's for certain).


Dance Apocalyptic by thingswithwings and eruthros I really really wanna thank you for dancing to the end. Amazing multi-fandom vid about when the world is ending.


I get so used to finding no fic I like when I poke into modern fandoms (just endless fluff and AUs and ships), that I was actually shocked when I looked into Ripper Street on AO3 and found actual multiple good fics. (I suppose it is a fandom where one of the main attractions is its use of language...)

Inspector Reid's Catalogue of Criminals by shyday (G, 6616 words. Edmund Reid, Homer Jackson, Fred Abberline.) An archive fic. Great capturing of the voices - Reid, his obsessions and dreams and his archive project. (set shortly before 3.01).
lost_spook: (dw - amy)
1. Calufrax is back in action and in need of more reccers! It seems to be harder and harder to poke a response out of readers these days, but it's still always fun & worthwhile.


2. Belated, but [personal profile] shinyjenni made a wonderful multifandom vid about the women of SF for Vidukon - her vidpost is here where you can tell her how awesome it is and see the list of fandoms etc.. embed )


3. Following up on the return of King Arthur in the wake of the EU Referendum result, here's one where Lord Vetinari takes over. (Yeah, we continue in limbo; none of the options ahead look good, but hey ho. Have a joke article.)


4. Also very belated - a fab Adam Adamant Lives! fic by [personal profile] swordznsorcery which was for [community profile] fandom_stocking for me and Liadt, and now up on AO3. (Swordznsorcery has now uploaded some of their other fic too and is worth checking out, especially if you like various old telly fandoms like Blake's 7 and Doctor Who etc.):

A Most Unrestful Break For Two (10149 words) by swordznsorcery
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Adam Adamant Lives!
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Adam Adamant & Georgina Jones
Characters: Adam Adamant, Georgina Jones, William E. Simms
Summary: Fandom Stocking fic. Adam Adamant and Georgie Jones tussle with dastardly fiends at the Savoy hotel in London.


5. I haven't forgotten the crossover meme. I just... haven't written any yet. But I keep admiring my prompts, so, hopefully soon...


I feel sure there were some other fannish things that built up between my op and all the national upheaval, so apologies if I've missed something, but in the meantime, these are all shiny things!

It's a very good day, that produced three fangirls - not only me, but [personal profile] st_aurafina and [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan! Happy birthday to both of you! Here's to a lovely day and best wishes for the upcoming year!

And apropos of nothing much, except that I found it yesterday & it's one fandom we all share, here's a vid rec:



This was somebody's anniversary tribute, so I don't know how I've avoided it till now. It's lovely! Very handy for if you ever need to answer the question, "What is Doctor Who and why should I watch it/why is it the best show ever?" (One warning, there's a sequence early on that has some quick cutting if that sort of thing is a problem.)

Happy birthday to [personal profile] whuffle, [livejournal.com profile] rosiedlotrfan, [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride, and [livejournal.com profile] aralias! May you have a wonderful day!

Or, at least, as definitely two (three?) of you know, the best day you can, considering that this is Gauda Prime Day. May you keep your chins up, never lose your snark, keep the rebellion going, and probably you should watch fanvids and sigh?

Here are some appropriate vids I happen to like. It goes without saying that if you don't know B7, they're spoilery as hell. But if you don't know B7, you won't be, ah, celebrating Gauda Prime Day:

The Final Chapter

Intergalactic Space Crusaders

Last Man Standing

Cartoon Heroes (Slightly cheerier S4 vid, if you don't want angst!)

The Cave

My Life Would Suck Without You


And Another Man's Freedom Fighter - the piece of B7 meta you really should read. (♥ Also, it's not spoilery!)

*heads off to rewatch Blake*
lost_spook: (b7 - deva)
1. One of the joys of Yuletide is stumbling over things you never knew about before. One this year that amused me muchly was the music video of Shakespeare's Sister's Stay. Now, this is a song that I recorded off the radio when I was a teenager (onto a tape, I'm a historical thingumy) and I was always fascinated by it - I reasoned that it was all one voice and maybe some fairy queen who seemed nice but wasn't (a la some Tam Lin/Thomas the Rhymer thing, because I had been reading Fire and Hemlock by that point), but NO. That is not what it is about!

As it turns out, voice one is a woman trying to get her dying boyfriend to stay with her and voice 2 is Death. Who in this wears a sparkly catsuit and does an outrageous dance because... er... um... it's an 80s music video? My favourite bit is Death's eye-roll at the end because, frankly someone's who's been doing a sparkly OTT catsuit dance like that has no grounds on which to eye-roll at people. Oh, and for some reason, it all seems to be happening in space because why not?

Cut for embed )

Anyway, I'm grateful to the requester because otherwise I would never have watched that and my life would have been the poorer for it.


2. Talking of amusing vids, it's been at least a year or two since I mentioned that Julius Caesar Poker Face vid, and every so often a person just needs to remind themselves that it exists and laugh themselves silly at the combination of Richard Pasco and David Collings and their ridiculously opposite faces set to appropriate-inappropriate pop music. Do not worry if you do not like Julius Caesar, 1970s BBC theatricality, Lady Gaga, or Brutus/Cassius. None of those things should come between you and it:

Cut for embed and Richard Pasco )


3. And now for something completely different, because otherwise I'll forget again, I wrote some more [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales:

Two in the same AU timeline:
Double Cross (PG, 4367 words. Edward Iveson, Julia Graves, Rudy Graves.) Julia’s having nothing but trouble with men – her brother seems to be in danger and Mr Iveson’s trying to buy her off with sandwiches…

Not Just a Passing Phase (PG, 5262 words. Edward Iveson, Julia Graves, Rudy Graves, Elizabeth Long.) The last thing Julia wants is for Mr Iveson to be lying dead in her kitchen with her brother to blame for it…

Faulty Connections (All ages, 1176 words. Anna, Liesa.) Liesa and Anna have the opposite problem when it comes to family.
lost_spook: (dw - amy)
I had such nice questions for this, but then it turned out I couldn't write the answers once summer really got going. However, it's now Not Summer, so...

For [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon What show did you watch obsessively as a kid?

My first reaction was Dungeons & Dragons and while that would be true, I probably got far more obsessed with that when it was repeated when I was a teenager. However, one childhood obsession was with the serialised French-Japanese cartoon The Mysterious Cities of Gold. Basically, Cities of Gold was a year out of my life - I think I was around 9 or 10? I think everybody in my class was obsessed with it, too. When my best friend had to go into hospital, she made me promise faithfully to write to her what happened in the next episode* (and then she watched it in hospital anyway, the ungrateful thing). Even my Mum registered the fact that we watched a TV series about someone called Esteban.

While there were other serialised cartoons at that time, there weren't many, not like this (and for some reason they were almost all adaptations of literary classics with animals instead of people) so this was something special.

1. My parents are up visiting, so I may be more erratic and less comment-y than usual (or not, we'll see) but if I miss something, that's why. (We had to watch an episode of Public Eye yesterday and Dad was complaining to me about Frank leaving Mrs Mortimer. It was great, but seriously surreal. What have I done, people? I'm only sad I won't be there to see it when Mrs M turns up again.)


2. Marvellous Twelve & Clara vid by [personal profile] purplefringe; seriously, it encompasses so much, it's excellent:

3. [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk is running an X-Files friending meme.


4. As ever, I'd swear there was something else. Imagine it here. It was probably the most important thing. ;-) (Well, other than that swordznsorcery is very kind and sent me a file full of James Maxwell gifs from his ep of The Champions for me to wake up to this morning, and what more can one ask for from someone? ♥)

First, an absolutely lovely multi-era DW vid, following companions after they've left the Doctor. It brightened my day yesterday, so here's passing it on to you all if you haven't already caught it:

Cut for Embed )

The vid post for it is here. It's a joyous thing, but the best bit is the Brigadier, obviously.


***

And two more [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales:

The Past Is Neither Dead Nor Distant (PG, 5182 words. Edward Iveson/Julia Graves.) Julia doesn’t like strangers in the house (or mushroom soup), and Edward doesn’t want to talk about his mother. It all comes down to much the same thing, in the end.

And this, which I had far too much fun making (it's technically an art piece, but actually fic in the shape of letters):

Wolves at the Door (and Other Unlikely Tales) (All ages, art. Edward Iveson.) That time the summer term was one unlikely calamity after another (at least, according to Edward).


***

If I'm a little erratic about commenting for a while, bear with me. At this point in August I seem to suffer from stress (summer is a month too long, apparently, and the strain turns into stress just about... now; so it's been for the past three years & at least this year I went "aha!" and stopped before things got worse), so until I feel a little better (which will be very soon! maybe even today!), I shall focus on the creative things.

Take care. ♥

Well, I still don't have LiveJournal, but I achieved soup, which is something. For various reasons, I can't be particularly productive on the pc just now, so lack of LJ continues to be a pain. In the meantime, I played with random generators (because what else do you do?) and got this:

250) His Counterfeit Condesa by Joanna Fulford
The Major and the wild English lion
Major the Ninth Doctor does not approve of Wellington sending a man on a perilous mission across French-occupied Spain, but he can see that Mr Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart is no ordinary fellow! The marriage-shy major and the English lion must pose as the Conde and Condesa de Ordoñez, travelling to a high society ball, and soon Nine doesn't know what is more dangerous — the menacing shadow of French patrols, or the sensual torment of sharing a room with this tantalising charmer…



Which is kind of priceless, I have to say. I think that may win the random generators contest for today. (Can you see the Brigadier's face?)


And then I looked at the contents of the Royal Exchange Theatre tag on Tumblr, and it really is rather cool. (I am still curious about how a round theatre like that actually works, but it is obviously cool, look, so I can feel happy about how obviously I like the best people, even if nobody else has heard of them. Well, until I go on about them till everybody goes zzzzzzzzzzz...)


And, er, well, yes. Then I made a post? Hopefully productiveness will be a thing later, and maybe tomorrow LJ will come back to me and there will be joy in the world and all that. It's all right today, though. Yesterday I had my thing where I get very panicked and upset when any of the things I can still do reliably gets taken away from me. I'm very fortunate in many, many ways, but that's a thing that happens for obvious reasons.


There might be posts like this every day, sorry. A person has to do something and I already made soup and sugarless scones and that's kind of exhausted the immediate cooking options. I read too much of my book yesterday, so I mustn't read any more today. I may be driven to go and watch that other thing I obtained with James Maxwell in, if tomorrow I have blood tests and still no LJ.


ETA: Also watched this vid. It's very cheering:

The commentfest continues! And talking of obscure and British things...

As threatened, a 'trailer' of sorts for ITV's 1978-80 WWII drama, Enemy at the Door. I made this as an experiment, because I thought I'd solved my issues with sound-editing on my vidding software. Guess what? I haven't, so this is not entirely a success - there are some sound issues, especially at the start, and it was getting worse with every edit. You may take it as read that I'm not doing anything else like this in a hurry. Still, that's what experiments are for, yes?

However, that said, it is still better than anything Network or Acorn have bothered to do for it and maybe it will explain something of why I like it so much. Or just bore everybody, I'm not sure at this point. Inevitably, there are some spoilers (especially for 1.13), but hopefully not too bad out of context (& not beyond 2.1 because Network wouldn't let me rip 2.2-2.13).

I have been a bit AWOL, but for reasons and also now I have a vid! And, all right, so it is a vid of James Maxwell, BUT it is totally a vid containing cute children and animals, paper aeroplanes, stuffed toys, random barometers, wilful destruction of property, Emma Peel kicking ass, vampires, tea and coffee drinking, two Henry VIIs, rocks, Nazis, space ships, and an actual kitchen sink. Also epic hand-holding (but not anything like as much as there could have been).
