NEW WHO a Play & More Sad News
I'll start with the good stuff this week.
DOCTOR WHO returned to BBC1 last Saturday with the new episode NEW EARTH. It was thoroughly enjoyable and most amusing if a little light. One 'fan' called it a 'crime against humanity' which I thought was a bit off. DAVID TENNANT has moved into the role quite smoothly and BILLIE was as hit as ever. Some nice special effects although there were a few plot holes - the use of intravenous drugs being applied to the skin to cure people. Does the writer know what intravenous means? Anyway, that's a small point, I mean it is about a guy travelling in a time machine. The documentary show DOCTOR WHO CONFIDENTIAL followed it with some more tantalising scenes from upcoming episodes.


A 'chav', yesterday.


Another new WHO publication came to my attention this week, BATTLES IN TIME. It's a partwork thing with collectible cards and games. Got some and promptly sold them on eBay along with the new issue of DOCTOR WHO ADVENTURES. Interestingly, BATTLES IN TIME is only available in two regions in the UK! I am a lucky boy.


'Boe' selecta, yesterday.

Went to INVERURIE, driven by 'Fiona', to see some young folks perform TWELFTH NIGHT and HAMLET. My friend 'Alison' was in the first play and was very good, some stout performances all round. In the latter, everyone wore CONVERSE and Hamlet's mother married a homosexual. Why? It was never really explained, and why would they!


A 'Catnun', yesterday.


Finally, my gran, Elizabeth McLauchlan, died. She was 86. At the wake, held at the golfclub favoured by the family, my brother and cousin did some putting. Grief affects people in strange ways.
