06:45 pm - Wherein Let's Keep Going, Post #60
Well, goodness, it's only taken me not quite five months for me to write two months' worth of posts. Sigh.

But I've grown accustomed to the numbering, and so let's see if I can get a month's worth of posts before end of year. It will be a challenge, because I am ridiculously busy at work and thus unable to brain particularly well at other times, but we persevere.

And today's 5 Things Lists:

Five Things I Love About Last Night's Doctor Who
1. MISSY.
2. The Doctor's entrance. In fact, this has become a great test for me: if a reviewer didn't like that moment, then I can skip reading the rest of their reviews, because the gap between their standards and mine is impossibly wide.
3. Missy and Clara scenes. Missy and the Doctor scenes.
4. The sense that the fictional universe of Who is peopled with astonishing women of a certain age.
5. "Gravity." "I KNOW." I love them so much.
5a. P Cap in Wayfarers.
5b. P Cap, full-stop.

Five Things I Love About Late September
1. The sharp blue of the sky.
2. A recognizable cool at dawn, signalling better weather to come.
3. Knowing that apples are almost in season.
4. Buying flour in the happy anticipation of baking season. (I have had a craving for cinnamon rolls like you cannot believe.
5. Finishing my shopping for autumn/winter.

May you have a wonderful start to your week (and if you'd like me to write you something in the next months, tell me here).

I especially liked Kate Lethbridge-Stewart's new second-in-command and her cool glasses. "Pardon my sci-fi, but that's not human technology." :)

And P Cap with a guitar is the most fun thing there could be!

Hugs hugs and a good Monday!

Yessss. Haven't seen it, but between P Cap and the AWoCA, I am ready and charmed.

So glad it worked for you!

This episode of Who is super-fun until the seriousness kicks in. :) (To be fair, the opening scene's pretty chilling...)

Hugs hugs, H_P! Sending strength for your week!

Gravity! Adored that. Adored it all, actually. He may be growing on me. :-) Who taught him those guitar licks, I wonder? Would love for you to write that. ;-)

I'm glad he's growing on you! And P Cap already has given us his headcanon in an interview: he thinks the Doctor spent time with Jimi Hendrix. :)

Hugs hugs hugs! Hoping you have respite this week, C.

Rainkatt!! I am so happy to see you. [hugs hugs]

Hurrah for your garden time, and hurrah for walking, biking, and spinning. I too don't miss summer at all... although in the subtropics the good weather is still a couple of weeks away.

Hugs thrice!

Astonishing that the weather has broken so (apparently) early...so welcome!

I love your list of 5 Who, and I absolutely agree. I kept stopping to rewind Missy Moments and loving them. Who else could tickle the Dalek "balls" and get away with it???

Hugs to you on this department meeting morning!

I'm very happy we're not still in mid-August, that's for sure. Hoping for crisp mornings soonest.

And Missy is the bees' knees, she just is. :)

Cheers! Hugs! And a good week ahead!

I'm glad you liked the new episode :)

I love that late September has the start of good sleeping weather. Not cold like the winter, but comfortable with the sun rising right when I need to get up.

As far north as you are, this must be the absolute perfect time of the year for sunlight! Enjoy, enjoy. :)

Hugs and a great Monday!

P Cap rocks with his axe battle! I'd buy an album with him on it, any day! And yes, all the Missy scenes. Need to go back read a summary of all the past versions of Missy/Master because there must be some kind of Davros connection. ( this discussion makes me want a refresher.) Or maybe it's all too convoluted and better just to watch both of them as we know them now.

As you said earlier, P Cap's hair!

And loving late September, the season that pleases everyone. The perfect time, and we get to have it every year! Apples, baking, blue skies--hints of cool evenings, and the sun at the most amazing angles.

Don't know if they have muscadines where you are, but that's the taste of late September, to me (even though they start appearing in August, I think it's just to let us know what's coming...)

I don't think the Master had too much to do with Davros, but New Who canon tells us that John Simm's Master fought in the Time War, so Missy's changed mood when she realizes it's Skaro makes all kinds of sense.

Hurrah for autumn, and hurrah for you! I hope you have an awesome start to your week.
