1. The second series of Being Human - one of the few things with vampires I can bear to watch - is due to start on 10 January. What I’ve been dying to know since the first season finished is what is going to happen with Nina.

2. In case you haven't seen it: David Tennant and Catherine Tate in Nan's Christmas Carol (Risotto! Risotto! Risotto!). I love the return on the Tennant and Tate double act, even though there wasn't much of it in Doctor Who. Those two should be in everything.

3. Oh, and just in case you need another reason to love Catherine Tate:

"I love love love In the Thick of it - it's fantastic. I'd like to get my nan character with Peter Capaldi's Malcolm Tucker character and they can have a swear off."

Okay, so I’m not advocating a Nan-Malcolm swear off namely because I have a gut 'hells no!' reaction to mixing naturalistic-comedy characters and sketch-comedy characters (although it's hard to pick. Malcolm is more foul mouthed, but he would have to be provoked to pick on an old lady), but a Thick of It/Doctor Who crossover needs to have happened last week (no, The Fires of Pompeii does not count). Actually, no. Malcolm and Donna would probably get along really well. But Malcolm vs. the Tenth Doctor, now that would be one for the ages.

(I don't know why I'm forever pitting characters against each other in my head. It's certainly fun though.)

4. And something for Thick of It fans and Peter Capaldi fangirls: News at Bedtime. A Radio Four news spoof about nursery tales with Peter Capaldi, and also with Chris Addison guesting in the first episode and Alex MacQueen guesting in the second.

I want so much for there to be fic wherein Malcolm and Ten are forced to work together. They would hate each other so much and it would be hilarious. I am delighted to not be the only one who sees that. :D

I actually have an idea for a fic. Now if only I could for once commit to finishing a fic, I may get it down.

I volunteer myself as beta if you want one, if that helps any. :D

The inspiration was I thought 'Oooh gosh I've got to do something, I've been off the telly for four minutes'.

I love her so much.

A Thick of It/Doctor Who crossover would be amazing. I should probably mention that ever since Nicola said that her eldest was 'a bit of a rebel', it's been my personal crack!fanon that she's off traveling with the Doctor.

Ooooh. That is awesome personal crack!fanon!

Damn. Now if Amy Pond's mother isn't a stressed out, idealistic cabinet minister played by Rebecca Front, who comes with a foe!yay relationship with a foul-mouthed but charming spin doctor who happens to be the spitting image of Caecilius and John Frobisher, I shall be very disappointed.

Thanks for the link on #2. I'd seen caps, but OMG.

Those two must have had so much fun doing that.

Ahh, I knew there was something else on the 10th January that I had to remember alongside the Chuck season premiere! :D I need to rewatch Being Human. My memory is so bad.

I've been re-watching it - it's been so long since the first series aired - and falling in love with it all over again. I can't wait until the 10th.

Catherine Tate's Christmas Special was brilliant. <3 David Tennant was pretty hilarious too. ;)

I thought it was hilarious - particularly the three ghosts.

Can David's ghost of Christmas present get his own show? OMFG

He was brilliant. If my dream comes true and Tennant and Tate get their own show together, he should be a regular character.
