That’s Doctor Lama to you

That’s certainly an interesting theory. And it would explain much about the Chinese…

Books Read in 2009: Chris Stevens – Billie Piper: A Biography

From the Cover:

"I had an amazing time in my teens but it was also pretty horrible.  That's why I was so happy to walk away and reinvent myself"

Summer 1998: Billie, aged fifteen, explodes on to the celebrity scene as the youngest artist ever to debut at number one.  A record breaker and a rule-breaker – from the start, her chart triumph marked the beginning of a roller-coaster journey that continues to this day.  From her failed marriage to Chris Evans to her hugely successful switch to acting, Billie has experienced a lot in her blistering career – and now the highs and lows of her remarkable life are laid bare in this, the first biography of the Doctor Who darling.

Following Billie as she grows up in the harsh glare of stardom – achieving exceptional acclaim in her chosen fields, but suffering from health scares, tabloid rumours and even death threats – Chris Stevens takes us on an emotional expedition, revealing Billie and her responses to her extraordinary experiences. 

Billie Piper gets up close and personal with this pop-princess-turned-sci-fi-sweetheart, who grew from her child-star roots to emerge successful, sassy and superbly down-to-earth.

I bought this remaindered, costing 50p, and definitely got my money's worth!  I was curious about Billie – I remember the dread I felt at hearing she was going to be the new Dr Who companion, which she was more than capable of!  And I suspect she would make a good friend and drinking buddy.  It goes to show, never trust what you read in the papers!

David Tennant in a Diet Coke Break

Now, I wouldn’t mind the cold shower if he were in it, too.

Star Wars Dance Off

** Edited to add – if you haven’t watched them, and some say they are not available, they are if you to my video page.  Same goes almost anywhere in Vox.  God knows why it happens.  But nine times out of ten, if a video says it is no longer available, it is on the vids page.  Anyone from Vox know why that happens?

And other strangenesses.  I expect you know I am a Star Trek nerd.  But I am also a Star Wars nerd.  And a Dr Who, Blake 7 and Andromeda nerd.  In fact, just call me SFNerd, and you will be right.

Nicely done.  But it is part of the 2008 Star Wars Weekends Hyperspace Hoopla show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  So you would expect professionalism.

I picked this one for the added bonus of Captain Jack doing the singing.  Not a bad voice, Jack. Not bad at all!

This has the advantage of not only having Janeway & Seven having sex (though not on screen) but talking sexily in French.

And I know I have already posted about Blake’s 7.  Well, fuck Blake.  He was a blancmange.  With bad hair.  But there is only one Avon.  Him of the black leather and studs, the one off sardonic line and the sex appeal.

So, I hope I have managed to happily waste 20 minutes of your time. 

A Clutch of Comics Doing Funny Stuff

They may have been a One Hit Wonder, Maggie, but they are still going strong and are well loved here.  As shown by this parody, done for Comic Relief 2007.

The Peter Kay character is from Phoenix Nights, a dark comedy set in the north of England.  Here is the beginning of Episode 1, Series 1.  It seems like most of it is there, if you decide you like it.  Peter Kay is just fabulous as a comedian, and I loved Phoenix Nights.

Matt Lucas has many faces.  Here he is part of Andy and Lou.  Matt and David Walliams wrote and produced Little Britain, a big hit here in the UK.  And maybe abroad – I dunno, cos I was never struck much on it.  However, all those people cannot possibly be wrong, can they?  So here are Andy and Lou on a Blind Date.

And, because I started with a Comic Relief sketch, here is the best one from this year.  David Tennant and Catherine Tate. 

Catherine has come into a lot of stick for this character, with people saying it encourages children to behave this way.  I dunno.  I just wished I had Whatever and Am I bovvered? in my vocabulary back in the days when I was a teen.  God.

Best TV

Avid SF fan, and I do mean avid. 

Blake's 7 – corny as hell, but it did have Avon, the bad man I wanted to change, in black studded leather.

Dr Who – even more corny as hell, but at 26 (or was it 27) series originally, knocked Buffy and Angel in the longevity stakes.  New series just amazing – Christoper Eccleston was a good choice, and David Tennant an even better one.

Star Trek – Cliched, but good.  DS9 was the best, then Generations – who did not lust after Picard?  I would have made it so, any time.

Babylon 5 – I have now watched this entire 5 season show 5 times, 4 completely and once missing about half of Seasons 1 & 2, before I got hooked (and before I got Sky+).

Coupling – just the funniest thing ever.  And Two Pints of Lager & A Packet ot Crisps – second funniest.  Not forgetting I Deal with Johny Vegas – sorry all you non-Brits out there, you will just have to take my word for it.  No, don't take my word – get out there, search for them, watch them – then you can come back and let me know what you think!
