Genesis concluded

Watched episode 4 last night, and episodes 5 and 6 tonight. Will have to go back and do it all again with the commentary turned on. But it really is very good, after all this time. The whole thing is very much Davros' story, rather than that of the Doctor or even the Daleks. The last few scenes, where his creations turn on him because they are doing what he made them to do, are superb.
Pity? I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank.
I wonder if The Deadly Assassin would hold up as well?

7) Secret Files: The Inside Story of International Rescue, by Chris Bentley, Stephen Cole and Graham Bleathman

Simply superb for the Thunderbirds fan in your life.

I do wonder if F will absorb the fact that his role models all have science and technology degrees from well-known universities.

He has already worked out that in less than three years, Jeff Tracy will be born.

(On 2 January 2009. It says so in the book, so it must be true.)
