Dr Wow!

Dr Wow!


Wow! How good was that?

Clever, funny, confounding - everything a great Dr should be. I nearly named this post I am not worthy II.

All hail the Moffat

Back on form, can't wait for the next ep!

I am not worthy...

Cemetery Junction written & directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

Where the hell was I?

Better late than never I caught up with this fantastic touchy-feely good movie on the old telly box tonight...


I am so not worthy: What a master class in scriptwriting, Character development and plain good ol' fashioned really beautiful story telling.

Even the minor characters are so well rounded they spring into believable life and breath truth on the screen.

If you haven't had the pleasure yet, I urge you catch rent/download/steal/borrow/watch it a.s.a.p.

And then rewrite all of your own scripts 'cos of what you've learnt!

And Lord Stephen and King Ricky, if you're reading this, and, yeah I know you're big Sheiky fans, where can I download the script to read?

(Course, should Rick and Steve be too busy, at the mo, what with Hollywood, bloggy things, cartoons and TV projects, to reply direct, or in the comments to me... does anyone else know where I might download their wonderful script to read for edu-ma-cational purposes?)

Stephen's official site: http://www.stephenmerchant.com/

Rick's: http://www.rickygervais.com/
