October 22, 2014 update: Years ago, I used to have a blog on LiveJournal before
common sense prevailed I decided to switch. Some of the more choice entries will be uploaded here for your reading pleasure. Here’s what I was thinking in April 2005. My opinion of Billie Piper is a bit more complimentary these days….
So here I was, thinking 2005 would be great – some old shows returning and some new ones to look forward to. Well, Nathan Barley was all hype and no trousers; the new, extended Look Around You thought it was more funny than it actually was – and don’t get me started on the new Doctor Who.
Well, do actually. The new version of the theme tune is rotten. Billie Piper should stick to what she does best (i.e. hang out with blokes old enough to be her dad and booze herself under the table on a daily basis). The TARDIS interior itself looks like an abandoned warehouse and takes the “bigger on the inside than it is on the outside” principle a bit too far….I’m going to come back to this later when I don’t feel like doing myself a mischief with my Tom Baker scarf.
