20 Alesha (Law and Order: UK) icons for [community profile] fandom20in20. Just before the last minute rather than just after the last minute only because the deadline's been extended...

shinyjenni: Fourth Doctor and Leela coming out of the TARDIS; background text reads: "excitement adventure really wild things" (really wild things)
1.) Law and Order was great again last night. &RONNIE; I LOVE HIM THE MOSTEST. Especially that scene where spoilers )

2.) Also great (and often hilarious) last night: Nurse Jackie! SPYDADDY WAS IN IT! I really hope the finale next week is good, because this is rapidly becoming one of my favourite programmes.

3.) Not on last night, and sadly not particularly great, either: The Invisible Enemy. spoilers )
shinyjenni: Spaceship: the Liberator (liberator)
1.) This week on Law and Order: Whoniverse Bingo Edition - Anjli Mohindra aka Rani Chandra! Brilliant. Sadly she didn't have that many scenes, and none with Freema Agyeman, but I thought she was pretty good in the ones she did have. (And next week L&O:WBE bringeth us THE DON WARRINGTON OF RASSILON. ...wait, is next week's the last one? Noooooo!) Also making me happy this week: Una! She was fantastic. I hope our heroes try and get someone for tax fraud EVERY week. And there's a sentence I never thought I'd type.

2.) Yesterday was my afternoon off and I did NOTHING, it was brilliant. I finished To Say Nothing of the Dog (♥) and read a big chunk of Strong Poison (sheer coincidence that I read this next, nothing to do with the vast number of references to it in TSNOTD). Then I curled up and listened to The Prisoner of Peladon, which I enjoyed very much, though I cannot guarantee I heard all of the plot due to being sleepy and warm, and David Troughton having a very soothing voice.

3.) I had forgotten how much I hate setting in sleeves, and have resolved from now on only to knit sleeveless things, or top down things (like this one which I have already made). At least I had an episode of Babylon 5 to watch at the same time - 'Babylon Squared', which is a great episode. I wish I hadn't seen 'War Without End' first, which spoiled the ending somewhat, but nevertheless it is very good. I particularly liked Delenn's storyline, with spoilers )

ETA 4) Big Finish are looking for submissions for new Short Trips audios. !!!! YAY.
shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (world is all before her)
1.) Finished (re)watching The Hand of Fear last night. Woe, no more Sarah episodes! (But yay, nearly Leela tiem!)

spoilers )

2.) Also I watched Law and Order: UK and Ping-Cho from Marco Polo was in it! I love TV.

3.) Changed my layout last night: [personal profile] shinyjenni. I didn't really do much other than use one of their standard ones, but I did fiddle with some of the colours and bump up the text size a bit to make it readable. I wish I knew enough CSS to code a layout from scratch!

I just read on [livejournal.com profile] louk_mattdevlin that ITV are doing a split season thing, so after next week there'll be no new episodes until September. D: WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, ITV? Is it because I keep saying your online player is rubbish? I only do that because it is.

shinyjenni: Freema Agyeman close up (freema!)
At the beginning of this year I resolved to go to the theatre more. It's now late March and I have seen exactly one play. But it was really good! It was Julius Caesar at the Tobacco Factory on Saturday night, and I thought it was an fantastic production. It was very engrossing, for a start: I was quite surprised to find that it was the end, since it seemed like it only about twenty minutes since the interval. The cast was great, I was a bit worried about Octavius at first as Mark Antony was going on about how much younger he was when he, well, clearly wasn't, but he did a really great job, so it didn't actually matter. Mark Antony was good too and Caesar looked exactly like you'd expect Caesar to. Portia only had a couple of scenes, but she was fantastic in them. It was done in civil war costumes, which was interesting: I'm not sure how much it really added to the production, but it was certainly different from wall-to-wall togas. I also liked the fact that the "Friends, Romans and countrymen" bit was drowned out by crowd noises, I thought that was better than making a huge deal of it, in a "pay attention, you lot, we have got to the famous bit" way. (Side note: you could tell it was a local cast, because looking in the programme it was obvious that anyone who'd done any TV work had done some Casualty, heh.)

Overall, Saturday was a really lovely day: Jess and Vanky came down from Cheltenham and Phil came over from Bath, and we all went up to the Downs (yes, I know) in the lovely sunshine. We went into the Camera Obscura and even though I'd seen it a few times before, I was still amazed by it. We were talking about how strange it must have been for a Victorian suddenly to be presented with this huge moving image, having never seen anything like it before. We also went down into St. Vincent's Cave; it made my legs hurt but it was worth it to be standing halfway up the Avon Gorge and looking out, wonderful.

And tonight is Law and Order night, hurrah! It's quite ridiculous how happy that thought makes me. I HOPE IT RUNS FOREVER.

Newcastle is lovely at this time of year. I recommend it. Here are some photos, though chiefly they are of Alnwick, which is in Northumberland, and not Newcastle at all. We went to Alnwick Garden on Sunday, it was very lovely as the sun was shining. From there we proceeded in an orderly fashion down the road to Barter Books, where I bought three books and a poster. And then we went out for tapas in the evening, OM NOM NOM. On Sunday we took the metro to Whitley Bay and had a lovely walk down the coast (or maybe up the coast. Oh why is my geography so fail?) to Tynemouth: it was sunny and not raining and not even that cold! And there was ice cream.

Books: I finished Waverley over the weekend. It did get better, but it's not one of my favourites. After that I read a Four 'n' Leela PDA, Eye of Heaven, which wasn't as good as I wanted it to be. The plot was intriguing, but the narrative jumped around in time and skipped POVs so much that I spent a lot of time floundering around going "wait, when is this? Who is this?" Maybe I was just being particularly dense, but I found it a bit off-putting. Also, the characterisation of Four felt a bit off - some sections were first person narration from his point of view, which is a risky thing to do, and I didn't think it quite worked. I don't want it to sound like I'm trashing it, though: I did enjoy it, when I wasn't being confused, and it contained an homage to Whale Adventure by Willard Price, a book I loved wildly when I was about 11, which earned it a lot of points.

Then I moved on to Gaudy Night, which was utterly marvellous. I have a feeling I will be reading many books by Dorothy L. Sayers in the next few months. I pretty much loved everything about it: the characters (oh, Harriet!), the setting, the writing style... In the introduction Elizabeth George made the point that it's the characters who drive the plot, rather than the other way round, and I loved that about it. (Sadly my edition had quite a lot of typos: poor form, New English Library. And there was brocoli on one of the pages. I would rant about the proper treatment of library books here, but a) I've seen a lot worse and b) I was reading it in the bath at the time, and the more judgemental I was the more likely I was to drop it in.)

Things that I love about Law and Order: UK:
1. Alesha's outfits! So pretty; I want to raid her wardrobe and nick everything. Especially her boots.
2. Matt and Ronnie and their double act. Their comedy stylings are the best, but it is all great.
3. The guest characters make me happy. They have all been really good and some of them make me laugh and laugh.
3a. PAUL DARROW IN A JUDGE'S WIG. YES.
4. All the character interactions make me happy, really. To be honest the plot is usually the bit I am least interested in, which probably means I am watching it wrong.

Now, off to catch up on the friendslist!

shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (worrals ad astra)
I am quite tired today, mostly because I sat up late last night finishing Worrals of the Islands. Oops. But I had to keep reading! I wanted to know even older spoilers than usual )

On Saturday night I stayed up too late finishing the Attolia books (something of a pattern developing here, I think) which I love trememdously. They're just so well written: the plot is engrossing, the world the books are set in is beautifully drawn and developed, and the characters are wonderful. They're all very rounded and believable, and their interactions feel so real. Marvellous stuff and I cannot wait for the next one.

Law and Order: UK is on tonight, and I am really looking forward to it, which I wasn't expecting: I went into it thinking, "not really my thing, but it has Martha and Apollo and him off The State Within, it's worth trying" and ended up really liking it. It's weird watching stuff on the actual telly as opposed to the iplayer; I keep forgetting you can't pause it.
