lost_spook: (S&S - Sapphire & Steel 3)
I finished this weeks ago, but I'm continuing to try and post and not hide things, so, again, finally...

Check out [livejournal.com profile] sapphirensteel, AO3, ff.net and [livejournal.com profile] element_flash for more. [livejournal.com profile] sapphirensteel is the central place - most things are linked there, even if posted elsewhere (although you will find one or two only linked via [livejournal.com profile] element_flash instead).

By and large, spoilers are few, save for post-Assignment 6 fics. Also: this post became epic, so apologises for any (rather appropriate) time-stealing. (I left out my Yuletide gift-fics, as I'd recced them before.) It's also worth noting that most S&S fic tends to be good, anyway.

lost_spook: (X-Files)
I'm about to finally be caught up.

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence:

Now, while Doctor Who obviously has the best theme music of anything anywhere, and probably should win this, I decided to go for:

The X Files intro (and, sorry, this was the best version I could find!)

It sets out to be as scary, weird and indefinable as an opening set of titles can be and pretty much succeeds on both the visual and audio. And, like DW, it's not your run of the mill theme.

Day 19 - Best TV show cast:

Probably any BBC Classic drama ever done should win this, because their line ups are always incredible. However, I vote for Spooks. Many shows by S8 & 9 would be flagging, but Spooks has always excelled in finding up and coming actors and attracting household names in regular, semi-regular and guest roles. A quick roll-call off the top of my head: Peter Firth, Matthew Mcfadyen, Jenny Agutter, Hugh Laurie, Keeley Hawes, David Oyelowo, Tim McInnerny, Anna Chancellor, Rupert Penry-Jones, Miranda Raison, Raza Jaffrey, Hermione Norris, Richard Armitage, Robert Glenister, Gemma Jones, Hugh Simon - oh, and Nicola Walker... Do I need to go on?
