In the meantime, when is the next book going to be published???

I was going to wait until I was caught up with Victoria to post these, but have changed my mind, as it might become an epic, epic post by the time I did catch up. After the reviews, I am not feeling enthused about going to see Victoria and Abdul (or American Assassin either, even though there was a catnippy helicopter in the trailer).

Ah, autumn has begun, what with this and Victoria being back (I’m behind, I’ll post about it when I’m caught up, and will be watching Strike live over it). I had seen the line-up, and, as ever, I didn’t know who half of them were, but that’s as per usual, so I didn’t make much of the sniffiness about the line-up, although last year I was convinced Olly Murs and Tony Robinson would be of their number. You get to know them over the weeks.

I didn’t realise that they’d be adapting each novel in three parts or that we’d be getting more than one – the build-up passed me by, I only saw the one trailer once. Also I’ve only read each novel the once, so my memory of the books may be hazy. My reaction to the adaptation, on the whole, is positive.

I will be watching bits of the adaptation of ‘The Silkworm’ through my fingers.

Huh, the number of fics up at AO3 has not exploded - I was expecting there to be slash by now. Perhaps after the episodes have finished airing/when it airs in the US... On the other hand, who knows if there will ever be icons.

I tried watching Top of the Lake: China Girl, but dropped out less than half an hour in, and I won’t be trying to go back. I was dubious about the change of location, because even as you were watching horrible things be implied and then happen, you had this astounding scenery. This continuation has…Sydney.

shallowness: HP films' Minerva reads the Daily Prophet (Minerva reads)
At the start of the week, it was twenty years since ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ was first published. After an initial ‘eek’ at that, even though I was fine with realising OK Computer is twenty years old also, it’s been interesting to read about how people have grown up with the series, and with it being such a phenomenon it doesn’t feel overblown to say that or to think about it’s influence in shaping social attitudes. There was the issue of the series getting a generation to read. There are people who read the series for whom it wasn’t a gateway drug to other books, for example, although I hope it got more people into reading more widely than would otherwise have happened, and it’s certainly a factor in the explosion of geek culture and the rise of the fantastic.

I dearly hope I get through to the season finale unspoiled – I saw a suggestive headline about season 5 and I don’t want to know anything about that yet!

I then gave Fearless a try, and Helen McCrory is certainly compelling as Emma the Lawyer. I have a feeling that there is no way it will all come together in a way that makes sense at the end of the series, though. casting spoilers and my reaction to them )

I dipped in and out of the One Love Manchester benefit concert, but from what I saw and heard I thought Ariana Grande stepped up remarkably.
