I've had a few answers for this meme done or semi-done for a while, so it's about time I posted one, and here goes - From [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan: Favourite TV shows almost nobody knows about and should watch? (Seriously... I need more stuff)

Shows that nobody else knows about seems to sum up my entire fannish life of late (and always, really), but since [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan specified "and should watch", that's a whole other thing. I have plenty of strange things I love - I don't necessarily think anyone else should have to watch them!

I avoided anything with its own (reasonably active) fandom, like Blake's 7, Sapphire & Steel and The Avengers (obviously, people have heard of them, if they're being fannish about them), and anything I thought was too inaccessible to count as something people should watch. What counts as something 'nobody's heard of' is so relative anyway. (Some of these things really don't count if you're British but do count if you live anywhere else. What can I do?). Of course, much of it assumes some willingness to watch studio-bound, video-taped old British TV of some kind, which I know not everyone is up for. If you are, or you're willing to try, these aren't bad places to start.

Anyway, here's a list! Not in any particular order, really. (I numbered them so I would know to stop if I went over ten, because that would be silly.)

Under here for the list!! )

Icons I've made but somehow never posted over this past year. Maybe some were even longer ago? Anyway, FINALLY...


Credsit: Textures by [livejournal.com profile] tiger_tyger and [livejournal.com profile] twinstrikeish & probably some others. The usual rules apply: want, take, have, credit. No hotlinking, comments are ♥

The last of the batches that were hiding on my hard disc (although another is now building up quite nicely, too. :-D) These were lurking there the longest, as they are a bit rough, and I was going to do more and betterer (and I will). But I think they're quite nice as a small-ish set. There are also a handful from my screencaps of Peter-inexplicably-in-a-tux on the DVD extras. These are pretty much just bases, though.

As ever: want, take, have, credit is nice and comments are ♥ (and beware dreaming alone).

I watched one of the extras on the new Caves. It was one of those clips from a chat show, with Colin and Peter, and I was expecting it to be mildly interesting. What I wasn't expecting was...

Gratuitous picspam of Colin and Peter on Russell Harty in 1984. Not dial-up friendly )
lost_spook: (jc - jonathan & Maddy)
(with unexpected naked!Ancelyn, as I promised Clocket).

Naturally, possible spoilers for the S2 episodes Danse Macabre and Mother Redcap under the cut (although I have done my very best not to reveal any of the how/whodunnit aspect, I promise!):

In which Peter Davison turns up at the door dressed as a vicar and Jonathan wants Maddy to check his underwear... )

In which Jonathan chats up WPC Nicola while Maddy discovers that Ancelyn (all right, Marcus Gilbert) has an interesting hobby... )
lost_spook: (Turlough hero)
Hey, I spent some of my birthday money on this... and have made some icons. I couldn't help it (plus, yet again, Friday insomnia strikes, so I have little brain for writing). You will be relieved to hear there are none of Turlough in speedos.

There are also some extra I did last week for Vengeance on Varos. (Now that my skills have improved a bit.)

I love hunting for books and videos in charity shops.  You never know what you might find.  Yesterday I found a very old (1985) Miss Marple with Peter Davison in it for 99p.  What could I do?

Spoilers (if you can call it that after 23 years and however long since the book was written)
