08:34 pm: doctor who
so, the big companion news is that Charley & C'rizz are, as long guessed at, leaving in the near future, and another series of Paul McGann/Lucie Miller audios has been announced, but not for BBC7.

Having missed it on Saturday due to being away; yesterday I listened to Valhalla. This features an aged, companionless, 7th Doctor, investigating a mystery on a Jovian moon, almost despite himself.

"for sale. one doctor. excellent condition. six previous owners. only 900 years on the clock. extensive experience in cross-cultural affairs and science. practical, witty, highly clubbable. (even if i say so myself) wanted in many major - oh, no, no, not putting that - much sought after - that's better - in all major star systems. available at all times. has own transport! would make an excellent companion"

It's rather an improvement on the last few plays, which have been lacklustre : Renaissance of the Daleks was particularly silly (toy daleks?; it's hard to know whether the silliness is despite or because of writer Christopher Bidmead) and the subsequent two releases were saved only by their one-part bonus adventures: Urgent Calls in particular being a fun little vignette. Release 100 in September should be a particular high-point, featuring 1-part stories from each of Rob Shearman, Joseph Lidster, Jacqueline Rayner and Paul Cornell.

What, you mean it's on television, as well?

That sort-of reminds me of a friend who was hard-core into Stargate SGI fanfic despite never ever seeing an episode. In the end, he never /wanted/ to see it on TV as that would spoil his mental image of O'Neil, Carter, et al.

Well, people might conceivably be avoiding spoilers for Big Finish. And hey, it's a punchline...
