The cover of this book always looked so cool to me. I've been meaning to read it.

Oh no, not Eli! I like that series more this season than I did the first. I'm looking forward to series 3 of Torchwood in 2009 and hopes it starts in February on BBC America.

We haven't even had this in the UK yet! Apparently it's going to be shown in 5 parts, all in the same week. There should be some info about it on the BBC's website.

It's fab :D

And who knew John Simm could be sexy? ;)


I'm watching it, quite enjoying it although finding the history a bit confusing. John Simm is very good, quite like Cromwell too though I don't think I'm meant to!

For anyone in the UK who can get ITV3, there's a nice little series this week at 8.00 each night about costume dramas. I missed Monday's and saw half of last night's, it's basically actors, producers etc reminiscing about their time in these shows but there are some nice anecdotes and good clips - tonight's is about romances so there will be Poldark, the usual Austens etc. Looks quite good.
