So, in other news, 2016 is an utter bastard. Yes, I know. That's one headline that's shocking precisely no-one. The latest in its string of victims is Joe Mascolo, who is not terribly well known in the UK, I know. He was eighty-seven, which isn't bad going really, but I've been watching him for the best part of twenty years, and I really liked the character that he played on TV. Also, turns out he'd been fighting Alzheimer's for some time, poor man. Never have known it - he was recording new scenes until late last year, so I guess he found ways to cope as well as possible. Why didn't we just jettison this year back in January, when it showed early signs of going so badly wrong?


But behind all the grumbling, I did actually come here for a rather more cheerful reason than another 2016-flavoured moan. Somebody just pointed me at this video, and it's utterly marvellous. Christmas on Deep Space 9! The creator of this has put together the best edited video that I've seen in a long while. It's completely ridiculous - it's slightly scary that they even thought of it, let alone managed it - but trust me, you need it in your life. It even made me smile, and I'm allergic to smiling.

Simply having a wonderful... )

I only ever seem to post about Torchwood these days. That's probably a huge breach of internet etiquette, but it's Torchwood, and I tend to lose all sense of proportion whenever it gets involved. Sorry about that.

Now that felt like vintage Torchwood! In fact it almost felt like watching vintage Torchwood, too, back in the dark days of 2006 - certainly it ended the same way. Yep, the morons have started again. Ohmigosh, there were men kissing! How dare the BBC! You'd think we might have moved on a little in the last five years, but no. Same arguments, same nonsense. Hello 2011.

Things get distinctly more cheerful under the cut )
