Moses Jones
Part 1 (of 3)
A good little thriller, even if there were one or two logic holes. Hopefully Matt Smith will use a different accent when it comes to playing the 11th Doctor -- that one's a bit too similar to Tennant's for my taste.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Torchwood: Children of Earth Trailer
Looks good! Shame it's not going to be on for ages.

Mouse Guard is bleedin' brilliant, and this is a nice interview with its creator/writer/artist, covering topics from how the series began to where its going to plans for a movie version that are kinda surprising...

Poem of the Week: Poetry

by Edmund Vance Cooke

In the week I start the Poetry module of my MA, I thought this was an appropriate choice.

To deftly do what many dimly think;
     To fund a feeling for the world to borrow;
To turn a tear to printer's ink;
     To make a sonnet of a sorrow.

Edmund Vance Cooke lived between 1866 and 1932. For a bit more info and some more of his work, look to Representative Poetry Online. (He doesn't have a Wikipedia entry! Shocking, I know.)
