While I work on some other AU requests (I nearly finished the spies and then got a better idea so I'm changing it), some other updates and linkages:

Mo Ryan posts about the lack of women writers on TV.

Doctor Who Miscellany:
Sylvester McCoy does the Doctor's speech from the Pandorica Opens at D*C: http://youtu.be/QhlmNkk5r0k

BBCA is apparently not distinguishing between new episodes and old so my DVR recorded all of them this past week. But they all have the same generic description! BBCA get with it.

Also, watching TOP GEAR US - Arlene Tur from Torchwood:Miracle Day posted the fastest time at their celebrity track, out of some twenty drivers. She ran over two cones and a camera, but she was fast! Apparently not braking beats out experience. lo

"Night Terrors" wasn't one of my favorites. I read that it was moved from earlier in the season (that it should've been where Black Spot went); don't know if that's true, but it would fit Amy and Rory a bit better, if so.

Aw, I loved Arlene Tur in Torchwood. The new female characters are pretty much the only thing I liked about Miracle Day. Well, and Gwen's utter fabulousness.

Oh, thank you. I thought I was the only one not THRILLED with Night Terrors. It wasn't a bad episode but wasn't really a stand-out for me, either and the Amy/Rory stuff was so odd after everything they've been through. I really hope the episode-switch was the cause and not the writers thinking they could just brush all of that off to get on with the adventuring.

yeah, I'm not one who appreciates the stand-alone DW as much as some fans do, and then having it be about children and parents, and yet no direct Amy/Rory stuff made it feel... off-balance? Or like a wasted opportunity, I suppose?

Ugh. We get treated much the same in the wedding video world. I complained that our industry expo only had three female speakers out of 28; men (not the expo-putter-onners) replied that women don't do anything that's good enough to get them to the top. THAT MADE ME SO ANGRY.

Originally "The Doctor's Wife" was #3 and "Night Terrors" was #4.
