. There's not fic that has been posted there yet, but I think the fact that a community now exists is a good sign. I feel a bit guilty wanting some good Harvey fic but not contributing any myself. Blame my work load and RTD, I'm too busy trying to fix the ending to Journey's End
Speaking of Doctor Who
, a fanvid rec: Glorious
vidded by rhoboat
. More than any song Muse has ever recorded (except maybe for Knights of Cydonia) this song has been asking for a Doctor Who fanvid to be made of it (and that's quite something to say when you take into consideration I'm talking about Muse. Half the songs they've written seem to be about lonely emos in space). Anyway, rhoboat
's made an absolutely wonderful one about Rose, Martha and Donna. It's just such a prefect summary of them and their journeys and nearly everything I love about the news series and it's the kind of fanvid I'd show non-fans to get them hooked.
I only just discovered both this community and this ship: donna_gene
. Possibly the best cross over ship ever, because somehow Donna Noble and Gene Hunt would just be perfect together. It totally happened in Turn Left
after alt!Donna got hit by the truck. If they ever do decide to bring on the show the (ex) Missus, Catherine Tate would be my first choice of casting.
And speaking of Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes
, I've been re-watching both the second season of Mars and Ashes, one episode after the other (so the first episode of Mars, followed by the first episode of Ashes) and have discovered something: I've prefer Ashes to Ashes to the original, and I'm not actually sure why. But also, I desperately want Annie to show up on Ashes to Ashes in the future. I want to know what she's been up too. Hopefully she's still the most competent cop in the Manchester area, but whether she's been struggling to get recognition or whether she's been promoted. And she possibly would be able to give us more about the mystery of what happened to Sam. Plus, she's was Sam's confident so I'd like to see her take on Alex.
I'm still incredibly 'do not want' about the American remake. I think my dislike of the show has been made worse by the executive meddling, because now it's looking like it has a chance of being actually half-way decent, which means it might not be cancelled and instead it gains a level of public recognition that makes it overshadow the original. That, and not a Viva Laughlin, is the worst case scenario in my view. Harvey Keitel (as much as I love him) and Jason O'Mara should not be people first thoughts as the actors in the roles of Gene and Sam over Philip Glenister and John Simm. So, any people on my flist who want to watch the American version, I implore you to watch the British version first. It's only sixteen episodes in total and it's fabulous.
My mother has been watching both the second and third series of Stargate SG1
and because of this so have I. Years ago I was so into that show, but I seemed to have lost interest about the time they started with the cast changes, first the Daniel-Jonas-Daniel and then they killed off Janet. By the time O'Neill was promoted I'd given up. And then last episode I caught it had mysteriously turned into Farscape. It's one of those shows where the team dynamic is the draw for me, and once they started messing with the team, it just wasn't the same. But season two and three have the old team, and it's wonderful: O'Neill! Daniel! Teal'c! And Sam, who is one of my favourite TV characters of all time.
