Only I would purchase a TV and radio program listings magazine when I don’t even own a TV or a radio. Tut tut, the things I do for my fandoms… specifically, the Doctor Who fandom which, I might add, airs the very first episode of the seventh series on Saturday, September 1st — how fantastic and awesome and wonderful is that?!
*FOUR MORE DAYS AND COUNTING*
Is it just me, or is the angle that our dear Ms. Pond is positioned a tad awkward? It must be painful to have her head like that, not to mention her legs and feet. At first glance the poster looks vivid and dark and you’re just to completely psyched for September to hurry up and BE NOW already, but at second glance… ouch for Amelia Pond.
On another note, after flicking through the magazine I caught a glimpse of Mr Cumberbatch in his period drama Parade’s End. Now, it’s understood that I’m a huge fan of BBC’s Sherlock, but the furthest I can go when it comes to Benedict Cumberbatch’s other works is in the upcoming film The Hobbit, and even then it’s somehow connected to Sherlock because Martin Freeman is THE HOBBIT.
“So what about Parade’s End?” I wonder. I’m not averse to period dramas (I like the costumes). And from the reviews I’ve flicked through, I know that the show will deliver when it comes to plot and performance. Yet, I am still undecided because I don’t feel like the show is for me… It’s too “grown up”, I should say, for the lack of a better way to describe things.
Nevertheless, I can watch it some other time. Not right now.
Oh well. More Doctor Who for me, then!!
