  1. WHO's that girl?

    The Ergon, Arc of Infinity. I'm not proud that I know that.
  2. Vertigo back on the ledge

    You have been! Admittedly I've not been back up for a few years, but when I lived in Embra in the 90s, it seemed pretty much to be the Goth capital of the world – but largely incomers rather than natives. I blame all the pointy architecture and lack of sunlight. They all read Sandman, of course.
  3. Vertigo back on the ledge

    Have you never been to Edinburgh?
  4. The beauty of this analogy is that Rankin has to be McGann.
  5. Revisitations 6: The Mike Carey Years (2002-2005)

    For those who like his writing, Carey is doing a thing at the University of Huddersfield this evening – http://litfest.org.uk/?q=diary#Festival%20launch Apologies for the short notice – I'd probably have spotted it sooner if he'd been billed as Mike rather than MR.
  6. WHO's that girl?

    Probably my favourite season, even with the dodgy Dalek story. 'Blink' was the weak point of that second-half run for me, though I realise I'm in a minority there – how did you feel it held up, given that so many of its narrative tricks have been, let's say, revisited more than once by Moffat?
  7. WHO's that girl?

    I'm happy, obv. For historical curiosity value, here's the 2006 interview which mentioned Gomez's ambition to "in the longer term, be the first female Doctor Who" – http://www.theguardian.com/media/2006/apr/27/broadcasting.arts
  8. WHO's that girl?

    You're possibly forgetting the business with her parents in 'The Rings of Akhaten', which is understandable. It didn't help that it was an entirely different dad. But yes, it's certainly shaping up to be Moffat's best season, full of pretty solid episodes that try to do something different and (mostly) succeed on their own terms. Let's see if he can pull off a decent finale for a change...
  9. WHO's that girl?

    I recall that Moffat said he commissioned 'Journey to the Centre of the Tardis' because he remembered being disappointed by the chase through the Tardis's interior in 'The Invasion of Time'. I suspect that he also decided that what that story was really missing was an extra six episodes of Leela and Andred flirting.
  10. WHO's that girl?

    It could be significant that Missy's garden and tearoom are both at Dyffryn, the same location as River's virtual afterlife. But it's probably not – it was also in 'The Girl in the Fireplace', 'The Girl Who Waited', a Torchwood or two, and at least one Sarah Jane Adventure.
  11. ranking authors

    Top to bottom – Jamie Delano Garth Ennis Denise Mina Peter Milligan Warren Ellis Paul Jenkins Brian Azzarello Andy Diggle Mike Carey Although pretty much everyone between the first and last couple could move around depending on which specific stories I can remember. If they were ranked on best stories, Azzarello would probably rank higher. If ranked on worst stories, Ennis and Mina would be a lot further down.
  12. Vertigo back on the ledge

    Sorry to say that the finale to The Wake makes me think less of the pretty decent first half. The second half was a bit of a mess, but the big reveal at the end is both barely coherent and horribly mawkish – if not actively offensive.
  13. That's commendably self-aware of you, sonny. Top of the special class.
