So I have an admission to make, I didn't watch Doctor Who when I was a kid because I really did hide behind the sofa. Not at the show, but at the closing credits. I don't even really know which era it was, but I remember there was a POV of spinning through space with stars and other asterological *things* flying past the camera. It freaked me the hell out. So much so that when I started using a computer (Windows 3.0...) I couldn't even look at that particular screen saver because of the childhood traumas!

But now I'm a fan, and I'm going through and watching old episodes when I can find them.

Yesterday I spent a huge amount of time watching season 17. The Tom Baker and Romana II era.

Even with the dodgy special effects and some of the more interesting mysogyny going on in the scripts, that show rocked.

I even got a hold of the unaired episode Shada which is incomplete. The version I have has an older Tom Baker filling in the gaps where footage is missing with narration and some voiceover work. It's fantastic. And not just because it was written by Douglas Adams.

So my Whovian nature is coming back, nice timing for the new episode due on Saturday!

In other fandom news, I have some reactiony things for SPN 4.16 & 4.17 which I 'composed' whilst watching them at the weekend. Unfortunately they're on my pen drive which is currently plugged into the USB port on my computer. That's in my house. I'm in the library. I'll post 'em when I get a chance later this week!

Sweet Charity rocked - I didn't get any of the people I bid on because my budget was so limited but the people who won me have given me awesome prompts so far. One Dark Angel fic, one Angel fic and as yet undefined graphics. *mock glares at graphics buyer* *realises she hasn't responded to emails about the prompts from any of the winners* *looks suitably ashamed*

Dollhouse gets better - I'm definitely a fan now, not hard core yet. But I like it.

Speaking of things of which I am a hardcore fan - Leverage. Rocks. LOVE that show. (although, I've been having conversations with myself about the pronunciation. I automaticaly say it to sound like 'leave-arage' but shouldn't it sound like 'lev-erage' (as in 'left')? How would Sophie say it? *g* Could still live without the apparent need the writers have to pair off the characters with each other, but it doesn't detract from the awesomeness so I can deal!

Please to be remembering that I'm a little behind others in the rate I watch the shows and I don't want to be spoiled. I'm not expecting you to feel guilty about using icons or whatever from an episode I haven't seen because that would be ridiculous of me, but my current rate is:

Supernatural: 4.17 It's a Terrible Life
Dollhouse: 1.07 Echoes
TSCC: 2.13 Earthlings Welcome Here
Leverage: 1.13 The Second David Job (season finale)
