So these are the covers of the Short Trips volumes I got yesterday. These are relatively old, about 6 years I think. I’m looking forward to listening to them.
Only a few days in Lyme Regis, but you can see that they’re really serious about it being the Jurassic Coast.
“Mr. Rockford? You don’t know me, but I’d like to hire you. Could you call me at…my name is, uh, never mind. Forget it.”
I posted this photo on Instagram the other day, but I was really pleased with it. So here it is again. In case you’re interested it was taken just outside the BFI on the south bank.
There were some good offers, but in the end I only went for one, which is fine, I didn’t end up having to break the bank. I hope that they do more stuff like this though. They have some great stories and series. I’d like to see them do some other new stuff of course, like UFO, like Space 1999. That would be brilliant, well it would be in my opinion anyway.
Well the first deal today from Big Finish that was useful to me was the first 4 volumes of Short Trips. That’s a lot of stories so I thought I’d get it and give it a listen. Of course that deal has gone now, but it was a good one, or at least so I hope anyway.
And I really enjoyed it, enjoyed it a lot. It was a little disjointed in terms of the connection between the three stories. Even so, they were all good in their own right, each story that is. And it was a good follow on from the first story too. The cast was excellent to say the least and it was really great to hear David Warner in there with Mr Hurt.
In fact, the first story was quite unusual for a Dr Who story. I shan’t elaborate as it would really give the game away, but it revolved around David Warner’s character.
Anyway, I’m interested to hear the next set of stories in the series.
I finally finished listening to this. I’m not entirely sure how to describe it. It isn’t really a book or audiobook, it’s more of a poem or piece of art or something different entirely. What I can say is that it is a thing of somewhat rare beauty and I can recommend it to anyone who likes John Foxx’s work or is at all interested in different and beautiful art which is both mesmerising and entirely thought provoking.
I have mentioned this before, but I was a big fan of Rome when it was on and I think I’ve watched it several times since then. One of the best things about Rome was legionary Pullo and his amazing, and at times quite inappropriate sayings. He came out with some absolute classics and I didn’t want them to be lost. So I had an idea to set up a twitter account (a twitter bot really) which would tweet some of his best everyday.
