A Pocket Full of Murder

My take on DH (sort of)

People are asking me what I thought of Deathly Hallows, and I don't want to disappoint them, but the fact is, I feel like I need to re-read it to decide how I ultimately feel about it. Yet I have no desire to re-read it any time soon, so that makes me feel like I'd better just keep my mouth shut. In the meantime I'm afraid you'll have to put me down as "ambivalent".

I will say, however, that I am pleased and surprised that in my Snapefic "If We Survive" (which is SO NOT CANON otherwise, alas) I anticipated by more than five years the idea of Collapse )

I was also right about Collapse )

And with regard to the deaths in general: Collapse )

Finally, some things I really did love: Collapse )

So there, some thoughts. Not a full review, but better than nothing, right?
A Pocket Full of Murder

Thoughts on "The Sea Devils", after watching Episodes 1-3

It is just as I always suspected. THE DELGADO MASTER IS MADE OF WIN.

What I did not expect was to find that Jo Grant is also MADE OF WIN. She has great fashion sense, can communicate effectively by doing charades, take a man twice her size in a badly choreographed fight -- no, wait, make that three men twice her size each in two badly choreographed fights -- pick locks with tools not designed for the purpose, rescue the Doctor single-handed, rappel down a cliff face, and never once lose her purse while doing it. And here I thought Jo was supposed to be kind of weak and ditzy.

But then, I also thought the Third Doctor was supposed to be annoying, and I find I'm quite liking him.

Roll on Episode Four!
