Just a small tribute to Nicholas Courtney, who played Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart in Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures. A fantastic, charming, talented actor who will be sadly missed.
So I've made a few icons.

[1-17] Doctor Who: The Three Doctors
[18-38] Doctor Who: Inferno
[39-54] Doctor Who: Mawdryn Undead
[55-64] Doctor Who: Battlefield
[65-76] The Sarah Jane Adventures: Enemy of the Bane

Just once, I'd like to face an alien menace that wasn't immune to bullets! )

For those interested, the subject quote is from Dimensions in Time. And again, Rest in Peace, Nicholas Courtney.

So, my Press Gang/SJA fic is coming on well. Almost finished the first chapter. I might post a preview soon. Anyway, onto icons. I was taking a break from writing and other stuff and made a few icons.

[60] Classic Doctor Who - Terminus
[52] Press Gang - Page One
[44] New Who - Time Crash
[40] The Sarah Jane Adventures - Secrets of the Stars
[40] Absolutely Fabulous - Menopause
[20] Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer

So I lied. It's more that a few...

Day 24 - Best quote


It was really hard choosing a quote for this, because there are many really good ones, I though of Press Gang first though, because the dialouge is always fantastic and witty, and then I thought of the episode 'The Rest of My Life', because it was perhaps my favourite episode ever. There were a few quotes that really stood out for me, but the one (which is more of a scene, really :P) that I eventually chose was...

Lynda: Make it good. Give it some zap.
Sam: Some zap?! Am I getting this right? You want me to liven up an explosion?!
Lynda: I want you to give me the best work you’ve done Sam, and make it stick. This is our big chance to show what we can do!
Sam: Well that’s a new angle!
Lynda: What?
Sam: Gas leak, bomb or career opportunity. Lynda, there are people in that building!
Lynda: I know!
Sam: Do you? We’re talking about the dead and dying here, Lynda, and I’m supposed to put in ‘some zap’! How about I just do the obituary column in colour?

This really established the characters of Lynda and Sam. Lynda, the editor who will let nothing, not even tragedy, stand in her way of being the best she can, and Sam, whom one might see as a brainless bimbo, was a compassionate person who stood up for what she believed was morally right.

other choices (without explanations) )

Day 22 - Favorite series finale


There Are Crocodiles was very ambitious for children's television. It was very ambitious for 'adult' television as well. It was very funny, very thought provoking, and showed that deep down, most of Lynda's problems stem from David Jefford's suicide at the end of series one. It gave a wonderful insight into the mind of Lynda Day, and it was well written.

Day 23 - Most annoying character


I found Adric hard to like. He was really annoying at times, and he was an insufferable child who believed he knew more than what he actually did. But that's just my opinion. That being said, his death in Earthshock is one of the saddest moments in classic Who ever.
