The Sarah Jane Adventures
3x04 The Mad Woman in the Attic Part Two
Makes a nice change to have aliens without a malicious purpose, but to still craft an interesting and worthwhile story around them. It's especially suited to the kiddy-centric Who spin-off, actually

October Filming Roundup by Chuck Foster
(from Doctor Who News Page)
They're currently filming episode one of Series Five (or Series One, as Steven Moffat will be rebranding it), so beware spoilers in this piece. Not too many, actually, though it does reveal Amy Pond's job and her dad-friendly initial costume, among one or two other intriguing titbits -- including our first blurry partial look at the new TARDIS console room.

Collection Count

As some readers will be aware, I have a rather large DVD/Blu-ray collection. It's by no means amongst the largest in the world, but to any sane person it's big. Insanely big. Huge, one might say. And it's increasing all the time. Daily, at times.

So, in the interests of... well, nothing, really... I've decided to post a weekly Collection Count. Every Friday, a little list of some of the statistics from my collection. These will include a few the same every week, but, in case there's little variance (or, indeed, interest) I'll bung in one different stat every week. (If that makes no sense, hopefully it will in practice).

My collection has just been through quite a solid period of expansion, so it's a shame I didn't think of this earlier, and it probably means I'll now cut back and the numbers will barely shift at all... but we'll see.

Here's this week's numbers:

Number of titles in collection: 1,057
Of which DVDs: 1,024
Of which Blu-rays: 33

Number of discs in collection: 2,616
Number of films in collection: 1,094
Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,652

And statistic of the week is...

Total running time of collection (approx.):
179 days, 16 hours, and 53 minutes.

See you next week, faithful reader.
