I am totally fed up with waiting for Silkworm to come from the library. It seems like months ago that I ordered it. I checked up yesterday and there are 163 reservations for it. I've no idea where...

Captain Wentworth is high on my (admittedly very long) list of fictional men I am in love with. :)

And he was already on the list before I saw the film with Rupert Penry Jones playing him.

My favourite author!

Her books are all good, except for Mansfield Park, which just isn't. But the best imo is Persuasion.

Sounds like Dalek Caan to me, but I accept that might be just wishful thinking on my part. ;-)

Brilliant post.

Blink was genius because the concept was new and exciting. Now the timey-wimey stuff is just a big yawn, and an easy way out of trouble if Moff can't think of anything better.

I echo the "I'm less tolerant now I'm older" theme.

I used to read anything that was put in front of my eyes. I very rarely left a book unfinished.

Since I turned 60, that's no longer the case. A...

If you like Tennant, you're an irrational fangirl.

If you like Smith, you're a true Doctor Who fan. Definitely not any sort of fangirl.

I did want Elliot to win. And not just because he was from Lancashire. I thought his performance was inspired, and I'm not a percussion fan. (Irrelevant, but I loved his mum, too - "When he was...

That clip shows up what's good and bad about "The Trip". It starts off hilariously, but it goes on too long.

I'll still watch it though, for the many flashes of genius - and the scenery. :)

I see Eleanor Tomlinson has been cast as Demelza.

I'm not overwhelmed by the news, but then I probably wouldn't be whoever was cast.:)

Maybe I'll be agreeably surprised by her when I watch it.
