Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Writer's Block: Say goodbye to Kansas, Dorothy

If you woke up surrounded by doctors who told you that you'd been in a medical experiment since birth and that your entire life had been a dream, how do you think you'd react?

Surprise, shock, bewilderment. Just for starters. And probably a hefty wodge of curling myself into a little foetal ball and crying for my mummy. I think a revelation like that would be enough to drive anyone stark staring mad.

Writer's Block: Merlin revisited

If you were granted unlimited magic powers for just five minutes, what would you do?

Rid the world of homophobia, racism, sexism, and ageism. And generally disease and illness. And guns. And the desire to kill or harm other people in general. And make Sarah not allergic to cat hairs (if that isn't covered in disease and illness) so that we could own a lovely cat or five.

Is my five minutes up?

Doctor Who - Eleven

Fandom crossover... Attn: @steven_moffat & @Markgatiss #doctorwho #sherlock

The cover of next week's Radio Times is Rather Nice. In a "pic of Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch on the cover" kind of a way. It's technically to tie in with the BAFTA TV awards that are being held on Sunday evening (IIRC, both Matt and Benedict are up for "best actor"), but...come on, I refuse to believe that Moffat and Gatiss haven't at least thought of the possibility of a crossover. A proper, for real crossover, not just for Children in Need or Comic Relief, but a 45-minute episode of Doctor Who featuring Holmes and Watson, followed the next night by a 90-minute episode of Sherlock featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory. Same story, two different perspectives, with the science fiction-y elements kept solely in the Doctor Who part of the story.
