To be honest I'm really pleased at the news. He wasn't who I imagined they'd cast (having thought Team BBCWales would go for another younger prettier man).

I thought he was brill in Children of Earth and I think he brings the gravitas so the rabid lot of GB can eff off with their "but he doesn't have gravitas" nonsense they spout each time a new Doctor is announced (same goes for you Jo Whiley). (Sorry for the somewhat run on sentence there)

It appears that when it comes to casting the Thirteenth Doctor or the next companion we should be looking at the cast lists of Fires of Pompeii :D

In almost completely unrelated news Rufus Hound looks like a completely different person without his facial hair.

The snow was lovely for a few days but it made work so cold that I no longer have feet. I have two size five chilblains at the end of my legs. They hurt so much I can't sleep. It makes me woeful.

When ex-Cheddar woke up Sunday morning she cried because the snow had all been washed away by the monsoon that blew through Saturday night. This is why she's only seen The Snowman once because she gets abut hysterical at the end because snow doesn't last in this country. When she grows up she's probably going to move to Canada or Sweden or somewhere. Bless her.

Friday was horrible. took the best part of 3 hours to get home, there were a couple of bits where I couldn't grip the road and so many knobbers who drive too fast and too close. Driving up the street to my street (which is uphill) I was basically knocking off the kerbs on each side of the road. Not fun at all. And out drive slopes downwards so I couldn't park on it without the fear of hitting the house.

Friday afternoon was spent teaching Ex-Cheddar how to make snow angels and throw snowballs. (Her snowball throwing is nearly as bad as mine)

Saturday was spent making a 'better' snowman with Daddy and causing wanton vandalism to mine. (The cheeky gets pushed mine over!)

Sunday I ventured out for the weekly shop which wasn't too terrifying but it's snowed a couple of centimetres here this evening and is showing no sign off letting up so I'm not feeling massively hopeful about getting to work tomorrow. Unless we take the bus. Which I think Ex-Cheddar will love.

Today we made this:

He has been named Snowtoro.

Off to go and find some bus timetables.

Fringe: can't believe that it's nearly over. It gives me a sad. Love the fact Sky are showing the last two eps in sync with the US. But not that fact it means I'll be up till 3 in the morning watching it. There just isn't anything like it which I can use to replace it.

Breaking Bad: there's been so much chatter on My Twitter flist I thought I'd give it a ho. Only seen two eps so far. Not bad. His Lordship is quite possibly in live with it.

Stargazing Live: I love stars. And Prof B. and Dara. Wish this was a weekly series.

The Dark Knight Rises: not as good in some ways as the first two. But highly enjoyable. Michael Caine is awesome. That is all. The Batbike is really daft though. 8/10

This Means War: yes, I've had a Tom Hardy double bill. It was an enjoyable popcorn movie. Can't really say much without a spoiler cut. 7/10

Still NOT seen: The Hobbit. Having a small person really does prevent one getting out to the Odeon.

I feel that I can't justifiably bitch about something without seeing it first. And you never know it may just be good. Plus more Holmes on the TV is not a bad thing.

Nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. I'll probably even keep watching.

Giving Arrow a try. So far undecided. They get points for using Queen though. And for the digs at Lost and Twilight. Only halfway through so far.

Got Elementary to watch too.

I am also watching:
Warehouse 13
The Vampire Diaries
True Blood
The Walking Dead
White Collar (so happy it's finally back on mah
Red Dwarf

I will be watching:
Fringe (only 13 eps left. So sad face)
Continuum (got it recorded not started it yet)

And I will definitely be watching Derren Brown's Apocalypse. Because he is the awesome (or has he made me think that???)

Little Miss Muffin
Sat on her tuffing
Eating her curd and hay
Along came a spider
And sat down with her
And took Miss Muffin away

And this is Ex-Cheddar's current favourite nursery rhyme to sing to me in the car.

I really wish SyFy would get rid of the bloke who reads out the tweets in the ad breaks. If I wanted to know what people were tweeting I'd, y'know, go on Twitter.

In other news I love that Artie in Warehouse 13 rides a steampunk Segway.
