I also managed to watch most of Peter Pan Goes Wrong live, and given that I’d just managed to scald myself and was watching it with my hand in a bold of cold water and still laughed helplessly, it was hilarious. It’s mainly slapstick (a recurring theme of my Christmas holiday) – and it does what is says on the tin, the premise is that it's a televised adaptation of a production of 'Peter Pan' and what can go wrong does. You can tell that it's origins are on stage and they could have developed the possibilities of it as TV more, but it's more important that it was funny.

(I'm in the middle of catching up on The Witness for the Prosecution, and I need to post about Sherlock and Brooklyn Nine-Nine sooner rather than later.)

Yes, they were Saturday night, but I've been super busy and I just want to hibernate soon now, please.

tl;dr )

At least there’s not too long to wait for the Christmas special AKA the one that takes the edge off.

The UK's division over Ed Balls still being in Strictly intensified. I found myself disagreeing with Miranda Hart (she wanted him to win on Friday's ITT).

I watched quite a bit of Children in Need last night, I usually don't, and was reminded of the reasons why last night, but I was dipping in and out of doing other stuff too. Mainly I wanted to catch the Strictly bit and the Fantastic Beasts-adjacent sketch. Read more... )

I had planned to watch the results show this morning, but the dread updates prevented me. However, I’m proud of myself for avoiding finding out who went all day.

First off, Will dropped out ‘for personal reasons’ – I haven’t read any speculation, which may be better informed than I'll ever be and am willing to assume that something one probably shouldn’t speculate about cropped up suddenly, because he seemed to be really enthused about dancing and competing and knew the reality TV score. My cynical side thinks his record company must be a bit gutted and maybe Tameka also could have wished for different timing, but there you go. (I mean, as a competitor, he and Karen were teetering on the annoying, but he was clearly able to dance, so...)

What this meant was that the judges and contestants had more time to jibber-jabber.

I watched a lot of It Takes Two last week – couldn’t control myself, and learned that Katya is, in fact, Russian, that Will is so committed to Strictly he does themed rehearsal outfits (of course he does) and what Craig had thought of Danny’s first week dance. It also prepared viewers for a week 2 slump – so little time to rehearse the routines, omparatively Read more... )

I watched The National TV Awards on Wednesday night – I was in a weird mood. Also contains Downton spoilers )

Last night, I posted I appreciate your appreciation, an Andy/Daisy fic. In one way, I’m had put to explain why I wrote it of all things after the Christmas special as spoilers )

And now, let me make a public service announcement, because someone might as well profit from my bitter personal experience. Back your documents up now. Of course, I'm sure you have a better back-up system than the one I had been quite lax about.

Yes, last night after posting the fic, I suddenly has some difficulty saving stuff on my USB stick and then found a few documents were corrupted and my fiction files...were gone from it. If I had kept to my back-up schedule...but I might as well say ‘if I had a time-turner...’ So, I’ve been scrabbling to find out what I’ve lost and back-up what I’ve got. In a way, it’s a good job I wasn’t more productive with fic since Sepbtember, and there are a couple of things that were saved because I’d saved them elsewhere, but...aargh.

Brooklyn Nine Nine (season 3’s Halloween episode) managed to distract me from kicking myself.

To fill the second half of the slot, E4 repeated an old episode, which made sense, because I didn’t think we were so far behind that they could maintain airing two episodes a week. It was the second season opener, which made a nice background as I frantically tried to find and save what I could.
