New Doctor who companion revealed

It has been clear for a while that Rory and Amy Pond were set to leave our screens for a hopefully happy future together, taking no more trips in the Tardis. With each companion having a major impact on the storyline and feel of the series, there is now a hint of the direction or feel of what the series will be like.

But who is this new companion about to make their steps into the Tardis? It is Jenna-Louise Coleman who has alredy had a (unknown) career in TV

Apparently from Emmerdale, Jenna-Louise has already started taking her steps into the Tardis for the Christmas episode already being filmed in Wales.

Hopefully she won’t bring her soapy background with her, and the fun and natural feel of the show won’t be ruined.

But then, Billie piper went from teen pop star, Chav companion to classy Call girl!

So the new companion is very pretty, which after the beautiful and fiesty Karen, she’s got alot to look up to! Stephen Moffat has made some great choices in the past series, so we should have something exciting and new to look forward to as he deals with the Doctor finding a new companion!

Bring on new Doctor Who, we will be sad to see Amy and Rory leave though.


Valentines fun

Today, as everyone is well aware, is Valentine’s day. It is also one of my friend’s birthday (Happy birthday Michael!).

If your single and not a player today is hell, with the vivid reminder of your single status! If your in a relationship your expected to either expect being treated by your other half or to treat your partner.

Today I am happy in a relationship with an incredible man, but I don’t feel like he has to make a special day of it as every day is special.

Though he offered a night out in a resturant, I would rather just curl up.

I know I am a n00b at being in a relationship with him, as this is our first valentines, but here are some sure fire ways to not muck up with a girl on this pressured day of gift giving

  1. Make your own card
    Yes it can be easy to just buy a card, but if you are geeky, or have a personal joke you can really make something special. One example is this amazng Tardis Card! Though not everyone has creative skills, you could always just do an XKCD styled card
  2. Order flowers to randomly turn up at her work
    Today all the buzz was about Jen’s surprise flowers! They were not only beautiful, but also a lovely surprise, which for Jen with her long distance realtionship was a nice way to show he was thinking about her. Want to save money? Do as Sam planned, take an early afternoon and turn up your self with flowers.
  3. Surprise her!
    Girl’s love being surprised! Even if it is a little surprise, hand made food or petals on the bed, she will swoon 🙂 (though do check before hand if she likes surprises…)
  4. Use an in-joke
    In-joke gifts are sweet and cute and sometimes don’t have to cost much at all! With us playing League of Legends, the little bottles of Mana and Health potions were amazing! I still haven’t stopped grinning 🙂
  5. Do everything she wants
    Sorry guys, but if she’s not into video games, then don’t play them! Focus on her and on doing something together. If your lucky, and she wants nothing but a good game of LOL, then great! Otherwise, sorry guys, but you might have to slog through some girly chic flick…

Hopefully those hints will help! To celerate our Valentine’s, we’re off to watch House with indian food 🙂

SFX weekender 3 – Day one blog

I love SFX weekenders. There seems to be an ease about the place as everyone is able to geek out without confused looks constantly.

After an entertaining Thursday night (thank goodness for early entry!), the whole day was just a wash of fun geek filled plans. Well till I smelt fry up like the horde who’d been partying late into the night.

One of the best things about the weekend has to be the chance to talk to real artists and authors. Being stuck in a queue for breakfast behind Tony Lee and Dan was the best queue I have ever been in!

After joyful giggles, food and opening ceremony, Sylvester Mc Coy’s talk, minus Sophie due to the train derailment, in the big void. What a talk! After a few brief minutes on stage, he was buzzing through the crowds, roaming with the microphone.

Not only did people get to directly ask him their questions, but Sylvester suddenly surprised people with conversations with babies, break outs into songs and an inability to remain still. Saying nothing of the Hobb..*Muffle* other than New Zealand being beautiful, still left a streak of excitement for the upcoming film with Sylvester’s perscence.

Slipping through the throngs of crowds and making our way to the screening room, I had an hour of giggles at Tony and Dan’s awesome hour of comic book making. SFX weekender has significantly grown, and this hour proved it further. Last year I had attended the book making hour, but strolling through the busy pub, the intimacy of last year was evidently gone.

Dan and Tony’s hour was one of the few with attendee participation, with them pulling up people to play out their comic. The terror on Tony’s face after choosing the villian was epic, with his fear of being beaten to a pulp for what he was about to ask this guy giving the audience alot of giggles. As always, the pair ended the comic with a twist, forcing two of the guys to kiss as the final aspect of their comic.

The charity auction was the next stop for me and my gang, with Becky, though vowing at the start, having the highest bid of the whole auction! Aid and the guys really got excited as the figures grew higher, with the finaly total doubling the original target!

Just a minute, the funnest thing I have seen at an SFX weekender, followed and was the only event where I couldn’t photograph as I was laughing so much. If you haven’t heard the game before, they had a topic to not hesitate, repeat or meander off the topic set. Problem was, the panel taking part seemed to try and create their own rules, buzzing in when bored, or for increased humour value. I only hope that they repeat this event next year! It will be on my to do list!

The train derailment meant that Anthony Head was no longer appearing, so it was back to the rooms for food to be energised for the now famous Blastermind Quiz. This quiz was epically hard! I think out of all the questions, I managed to answer 10 of them! Any I had no clue was an excuse to yell “Trevor” as the “answer” as my team answered our way into 20th place. The success was greatly celecrated that night!

I stuck my head in to the end of the imagionarium, with lighting, magic, illusions and beautiful costumes filling the stage. The fire tricks had to be my favourite aspect though, with the chance to play with my new camera to get some great photos.

If it weren’t for a pesky head injury 7 years ago, I would have stayed for Pat Sharps session on the decks, but the lights and noise were too much for my head. If you do ever get the chance though, SFX weekenders are great, as the 51 troop girls doon their fantastic outfits of lights and sparks.

The day was incredible and it just made the next, with Brian Blessed, so much more exciting.

A sad farewell till the next sfx weekender


This years sfx weekender was a folly of delights, witty remarks and incredible costumes. It is sad that it has ended, but excitement already, for booking has already begun for number 4.

Having panels with Brian Blessed, Eve meryres, Sylvester Mc Coy and Colin baker does make it harder for the team to plan the awesome event for next years.

Though pointins and their staff were the cause for almost all of the issues, with little the sfx crew could do to stop! One thing is clear, the staff were slow, daft and very rude, and I feel sad that the sfx guys had to deal with them more than us.

The weekend however was incredible, and the laughs had where great.

My biggest issue? The lady dressed as a female 6th doctor, not with our group, who groped my noob. Whoever you are, make sure you don’t do this in future, as I hope the next person has the balls to report you, you sexual fend.

The reason I feel so much about this, is I have been assaulted before, so it brought back memories, but also the trust is broken. In conventions there usually seemed to be an unwritten rule of trust and respect, allowing for people to feel safe in dressing up. I wasn’t even dressed slutty however, and made it clear she was just after boobage!

But, as I must, I will look to the incredible (and avoid her in future)

So bring on mcm expo in May!

The Doctor and the little Barrowman!

Sfx is in full swing with a very who theme streaming through it. Colin Baker with stories of old doctors, his love of Matt Smith and presidency of the Dr Who fan club, he’s whoing all the avid fans.

Prior had been eve and her stories of Barrowman’s antics.

I can’t wait for the rest of the day ahead, though exhaustion has hit in the engulfing heat in the big void theater!
