Day 360: Boxing Day Trainers

Little boxes everywhere…

December 26 main

Some sci-fi boxes for Boxing Day, along with a pair of Stan Smiths (with blue trim this time) on loan from Will Guyatt. They’re brand new, so I’ll wear them around the house, but I think I’ll swap them over later for a more practical pair that I won’t mind getting wet and muddy when we go out later.

Loved Doctor Who “Last Christmas” just as much on third viewing, and thankfully, the FX and old-age make-up did stand-up well even on a proper TV. If you read my review on the SFX website, you’ll see that I covered my arse as regard those aspects, because it’s difficult to tell for sure in the BBC Previews site’s pixel-o-vision. For example, I really couldn’t tell before last night if there was snow on the TARDIS in the opening titles; I suspected there was, but it wasn’t entirely clear on the preview version.

I’m also wondering if by the end of next season we’re going to be seeing “Team TARDIS” with both Shona and Ashley becoming companions before Clara leaves. That’d be… interesting. I think either could make a great permanent companion. (But with Moffat in control, who knows? One of them may be Missy in disguise.)

Great to see Carrie Fisher on QI as well. Surely you need to be British to be that eccentric?

And so now I have a load of new Blu-rays to watch (they were presents), and staying with APs who have no Blu-ray player. It’s like some form of mental torture! Home tomorrow, though.

Last few days to get some sponsorship money in!

See you tomorrow!
