More Dr Who

I sat down and watched more Dr Who last night.

Other than the pilot I haven't watched any of the Dr Who episodes when they were actually being shown. I've been taping them and watching them later, usually two at a time.

Last night I watched episode 7 (The Long Game) and episode 8 (Father's Day).

I never really liked Adam (too smarmy for me) so I think he got what he deserved. *click*

As for Father's Day, wow! I enjoyed that one. Well played and it explains why the Dr doesn't try and deliberately go back and fix things.

One thing I will say about the new series is that it has certainly improved from the more modern camera shots they are using for the storytelling and mood setting, like the child's shoe and the leaves blowing in Father's Day.

Well done.

It's always been my intention to pick up Dr Who on DVD as they release it, and the new series is definitely being bought.

The next episode The Empty Child is on video at home, but since it's the first part of a two part I'll wait until I borrow the next part (The Doctor Dances) to watch it.

In related Dr Who news, it has been confirmed that Elisabeth Sladen has been confirmed to be returning to her original series role of Sarah Jane Smith for part of Series 2. Interesting! Plus Anthony Stewart Head, Adam Garcia and Penelope Wilton (Harriet Jones, Flydale North) are also going to be in Series 2, as will the Cybermen.

You're going to love the next two. Absolutely brilliant - creepy and funny. And some out and out gay references about a major character...

Oh yeah :D

The last 5 episodes are the best.

You should animate that icon so that the TARDIS fades in and out...

It'll be good to see an old companion return to a Doctor far removed from the one(s) they knew. And Sarah Jane was always a fan favourite.

I have to say I like the look of the next Doctor as well. It'll be interesting to see how they go with the characterisation, will they get the concept of the Old Man in the Young Man's body that nobody listens to right this time?

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
