Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

The Times of the Cybermen

There's a picture of a Cyberman ('80s version - didn't look at it long enough to be able to tell which actual story...) on the front cover of the Times.

Something to do with the auction at Bonhams, I think. But it fair made me squee.

Two things that are cheering me up at the moment.

One - Bravo are showing Leverage season 1, so I'm finally getting to watch it properly, and loving it to bits. It's lots of fun, it's unashamedly geeky, and it's got Gina Bellman in it. What's not to like? Well, their scheduling is weird, admittedly - last week, they showed episode 1 on Monday, episode 2 on Wednesday, and episode 4 on Friday (no episode 3, as far as I can tell). This week they showed episode 5 on Monday, they're showing episode 6 tonight, and then that's being repeated half a dozen times through the week before they show episode 7 next Wednesday. Whisky Tango Foxtrot? Oh well, it's good to see the show.

Two - in the ad breaks for Leverage, we're getting trailers for Supernatural season 5, which is being shown on Living TV. This is just setting off my fanboy squee like there's no tomorrow. Did it ever get all this kind of publicity when ITV was showing it?

Oh, and this looks all kinds of awesome and win.

Mmm...not the most romantic of ideas.

I was just reminded of a Doctor Who fic I had an idea for way way back in the mid-80s, all fanwanky ('cos, seriously, epic Cyberman/Dalek battles over the pyramids, and the return of Ian and Barbara) and I was thinking, ooh, why don't I sit down and properly write it?

Well, because I don't know much about what it's like in Egypt apart from a.) sandy, b.) hot, and c.) prismatoidal.

Aah, but...you're going on honeymoon there at the end of April. That could be research time.

Yeah. Yeah, I can really see that going down well with Sarah... :o/
