elisi: (Doctor Who)
Partly just to prove that I am actually watching Classic Who and have Opinions...

As I have explained previusly, I am watching backwards, by Doctor. I find this a very good way of acclimatising myself to the slower pace (Seven's stories are paced quite similar to modern TV, and then it gets slower as you get further back), and it really helps to follow a TARDIS team and see how they grow & develop. Watching random 'good episodes' never managed to make me invested enough to watch more, but this has worked a treat! (Even the dull/annoying episodes are worth it when you care about the characters.)

I have now done Seven, Six and Five, and have just finished S12 (Four's first). And I luff them all very much. (I watched the movie years ago, and should probably watch it again, although I know that Eight is basically to be found in Big Finish...)

Anyway. Opinion time. :) With thanks to Promethia. (As always.)

Now: The Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU petition has just passed 5 million.

Yesterday: The Guardian: Put it to the People march: a formidable sea of humanity and powerful strength of feeling
They came to London from across Britain and Europe, filled with enthusiasm for the new three Rs: revoke, remain, reform

Last week: Christchurch shootings: The people killed as they prayed
In order to remember the victims, not the killer.
