So, I've been doing a LOT of screencapping over the last two weeks or so. Every episode of Press Gang, quite a few Doctor Who, Pride & Prejudice, Torchwood, ect. And guess what? I've made a whole lot of icons. Not very good, I'm afraid, but they're here.
Also, my NaNo entries going really well. When I started, it was a simple novel about teenagers and their relationships that was partially inspired by the masterpeice that is Press Gang. Now it's full of danger, undercover investigations that are almost camper than John Inman and a lot of romatic relationships, inspired by Press Gang. Ethel's still there though. And he's still as confused as ever.

Anyway, on to the icons!

[64] The Sarah Jane Adventures icons (Death of the Doctor)
[48] Press Gang icons (Shouldn't I Be Taller?)
[48] Pride & Prejudice [1995] icons
[36] Doctor Who [2005] icons (Silence in the Library)
[36] Doctor Who [1963] icons (Time and the Rani)
[32] Torchwood icons (Children of Earth)
[24] Sherlock icons (A Study in Pink)

Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)


I'm a big fan of Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who, Lost In Austen... do I need to go on?), and I feel really bad for not having already watched this, but I keep putting it off. I don't know why, but I want to eventually ge around to watching it. It was hard choosing this one, and the other show I want to watch sometime this year is Andrew Davies' adaption of Bleak House.

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season Series finale


I love Grange Hill, and I was shocked when it was cancelled. But the final episode ever was just really WTF-ish. I mean, it just ended. After 30 years, it just ended. Nothing special, apart from Todd Carty showing up. Maybe some people like it this way, but I just think that after 30 years, Grange Hill should have went out with a bang with one of the big issue-based story the show was famous for.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series


Perhaps the best adaption of a Jane Austen novel. What I like about this version is the chemistry each character has with one another, something the 2005 adaption lacked. Julia Sawalha was great as Lydia, no other actress has come close to Alison Steadman's portrayal as Mrs. Bennet, Benjamin Whithrow's Bennet was just amazing, and Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth ARE Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Come to think of it, all the actors were brilliant, there wasn't a bad one! The only actress in the 2005 adaption I felt was better than the 1995 adaption was Carey Mulligan, who played Kitty.
