Lark Rise to Candleford
2x07 Episode 7
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]


Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll
Classic nonsense. I suspect this is destined to be a Poem of the Week before too long, though I do try to limit the number of very well known ones.

The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll
Fit the First

I am essentially lazy, hence why I'm reading Carroll's relatively-long-but-not-that-long poem in segments. See above for an infinitely more manageable (in length, at least) alternative.

David Tennant does a Christian Bale

Don't worry, dear Tennant fans, this is a spoof. You can hear Bale's original rant in full here.

"What the FUCK?!"

"I... I..."

"You fucking unprofessional Cyberman! What the FUCK do you think you're DOING?"

"I... I... well..."

"Fucking hell! Put the fucking helmet back ON!"

"But... but I'm really hot..."

"What?! What the FUCK? You don't fucking get it, do you? DO YOU?"

"But... I'm not in shot..."

"Oh! OHH! He's not in the fucking SHOT!"

"And I'm... I'm suffocating..."

"Oh, he's SUFFOCATING, and he's not in SHOT! Well GOOD for YOUUU!"

"I... but..."

"Shut up. Shut UP. Shut the FUCK UP. Just shut up. SHUT UP. I said SHUT THE FUCK UP. Shut up! FUCKING SHUT THE FUCK UP. OK?"


"I SAID SHUT THE FUCK UP. Fucking unprofessional fuck. Get off the set. Get off the fucking set. I'm not coming on this fucking set with this fuck on it."

"But... I play all the Cybermen..."

"Well la-de-fucking-da! The Cybermen can FUCK OFF then. You and me, we're through. Professionally, we're fucking through."
