Dave's One Night Stand
3x02 Tim Vine
God Tim Vine is good. Even if "Pen Behind the Ear" is too much of a time-filler.

Junior Bake Off
Episode 12 (of 13)
I know who I want to win, and (slightly cruelly) who I don't... but will they? Ooh, tension.

A daily dose of sci-fi - Day 16

A great quote!

Science fiction is full of great quotes -- more than many non-fans would care to realise, I think -- but this has always been one of my favourites...

from Doctor Who: Survival

The Doctor:
There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

Added at the last minute when it became apparent the series had been cancelled, this is a beautiful and incredibly fitting end to the series: looking out to the madness of the universe, but grounded with the mundanity of a cup of tea -- and always continuing.

I swear this one speech has inspired so much dialogue in the relaunched series. And some people would say the Sylvester McCoy era gave us nothing!
