Part 4 (of 5)
Part 5 (of 5)
The Radio Times were quite critical of the ending. Personally, I liked it -- it was a nice little twist that tied together most things appropriately, not ridiculously. Plus I thoroughly support its ultimate moral message ("all insects should die because they cause this", clearly).
[Watch parts four and five (again) on ITV Player.]

Friday Night with Jonathan Ross
17x10 (6/11/09 edition)
Yes, last week's.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

The Sarah Jane Adventures
3x10 Mona Lisa's Revenge Part Two
Another fun story for SJA. Last one next week -- shame.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]


Ashes of Time Redux (1994/2008)
[#71 in 100 Films in a Year 2009]


John Simm: 'My Master is unhinged' by Mayer Nissim
(from Digital Spy)
No no no, it's too soon to be getting excited about the Christmas specials! We've got the, er, 'Autumn' one to come first. Still, Simm does make some amusing/insightful comments about his incarnation of the Master.

Russell T. Davies planning Torchwood 4 by Dan French
(from Digital Spy)
He doesn't say it's definitely a go, but does say he hopes to start work in January. Considering the success of the last series, they'd be foolish not to want more.

Collection Count

We're into the fourth week of Collection Count now. For those who've missed the start, this series tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics. For the last time, here's a link to my initial post.

Once again, all the numbers are on the up...

Number of titles in collection: 1,078 [up 6]
Of which DVDs: 1,043 [up 6]
Of which Blu-rays: 35 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 2,649 [up 16]
Number of films in collection: 1,121 [up 4]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,696 [up 43]

Statistic of the week:

DTS soundtracks:
Just 185 of my DVDs have a coveted DTS soundtrack, which is under 18%. Of the Blu-rays, 37% have one.

See you next week, faithful reader.
