Abbey of Heretics is out!

So excited to wake up this morning and discover that The Diary of River Song Series Seven is out! It seems forever since I wrote it, and it's such a thrill to know it's finally out in the world. It also remains utterly bizarre to me that I *wrote words* that *Alex Kingston* acted, and…

So You Want To Start A Podcast

There are hundreds of articles about starting podcasting online, full of helpful and relevant advice. Is this one of them? Uh, maybe. Sort of. I guess. I mean, why not? I have experience though! It's coming up to Verity!'s seventh birthday (how??!) (also, you can enter our seventh anniversary giveaway!), and Hammer House of Podcast's…

Sunday Is A Day For Very Little Blogging

So here's a lovely mosaic of pics of the best of all Doctor Who companions. Also Ian is there. It has been A Bit of A Week, but having a lovely Verity! podcast recording last night really helped lift my mood. (Also we are almost seven years old now! And doing a competition to celebrate:…

Things I Would Do If I Was Falling Into A Black Hole

PANIC. Stretch. Lots of stretching. Like gum. Or spaghetti. An infinitely long piece of human spaghetti. Call for help. Then remember that sounds doesn't travel in a vaccum. Consider how neat that Stargate episode is, where a black hole attaches to the Stargate and tries to such the Earth through. Remind myself that Romulans use…

Five Brilliant Odo Moments in Deep Space Nine

I always find it a bit weird to be so saddened by the death of someone I don't know, even though it makes perfect sense: just because you don't know someone doesn't mean they can't affect your life, bring you joy, inspire you, give you comfort. They're still a part of your life, and when…
