I will cut it some slack on the whole "has the same plot as Horns of Nimon" thing, because it's nothing like as bad as Remembrance/Silver Nemesis being the same danm story and right next to each other. And, to be fair, it's bloody hard these days to think of a plot that DW hasn't already done. (Imagine the meetings. "Ooh, what about giant maggots which are killed by Quorn?"/"Nope, done that.")
It is the Isolus and Chloe, and the ship is a bit of why I do actually rate Fear Her as a good episode. Sure it looks cheap and the plot's a bit thin, but there's more to it than Tennant licking marmalade of his fingers. I am totally down with the alien clinging to the little girl and ruining her sense of reality because he's lonely and he needs a friend. It's one of those S2 episodes that makes what comes after Rose-wise very WTF.
I mean for reals! Why was Sarah there if not to serve as a cautionary tale? Why Reinette if not to bring down the One True Love concept? Why does Mickey gain self-respect in the wrong universe if he's not going to get the girl? It's like the moment - the very moment! - Rose is out the door the show forgets everything it set up and just runs with boring lovey-dovey sap that never actually happened. That's why S3 bugs me, because it's all fucked up reacting to a retcon of something that happened five minutes ago.
You can get S2 for like a tenner on Amazon. I might get it, not that it's not a bit shite, but that I could dig it a bit if I trust my own reading of the text. Love & Monsters was pretty grand (apart from The Paving Slab Issue), and there's Fear Her and the non-shite bits of The Impossible Planet. Oh god when she asks for a mortgage. I really felt for the poor girl even as I was like "wtf makes you think he wants to live like that haven't you been paying attention?"
Rusty is so the darker writer out of him and The Moff, because Rusty doesn't always let on about how horrid it's being and you're sat there wondering what he's doing bringing down Harriet Jones or whatever and all the other characters being okay with it.
Also I need to see the remaining "specials" that I missed. Are they Any Good At All? I kind of liked Planet of the Dead so my standards are pretty low as you can tell.
Which is MOST AWFUL?
The Doctor's Daughter
The Sontaran Stratagem
Daleks in Manhattan
Curse of the Black Spot
The Long Game
Rings of Whateveritwas
Victory of the Daleks

was revealed. DID NO ONE EVEN WATCH THE TRAILERS?? The girl beside me went ‘It’s his frieeeeend!!’ and I giggled a bit. Anyway, it was probably even more fun on the second viewing. :3
I work in a village. Although I say village, it's actually just one road and our office is at the end of it. As I was coming out of the car park on my way home I stopped to look round the corner to see if anyone was coming. I thought to myself, "No one's coming, I can go, but there's a horse." The horse was a long way off, I should point out. Off I went and then had a second though of: "Wait, there's a horse?" I had another look and sure enough there was a horse.
It's not the first time I've come across a horse. When leaving my sister's wedding (she got married in a village) I looked before going across some crossroads and decided to put my foot down and go before I ended up having to wait for the horse. I once saw a horse going down the main road through the town. That's not a very quiet road (I used to live by it). I have had to pass a horse before.
All these horses had riders, I should point out, they weren't just running around in the road on their own.

Rather than re-hash arguments about why creating public SFF recs lists that largely feature male authors is kind of dickish, I decided to fight books with books. Here's a list of 15 SFF books1 by women that I'm excited to see published in 2014. Token guys need not apply.
