We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago

British television has become an obsession of mine lately. This probably dates back to my childhood, when I would spend hours strangling the rabbit ears on my father’s TV set, desperately trying to tune in Doctor Who on PBS. Nowadays almost every obscure overseas program can be either rented, streamed or downloaded. You can say the floodgates have been opened. More Anglophile ranting

Farewell Sarah Jane

Posted in Television with tags , , on April 19, 2011 by roarvis

I’ve been watching a lot of mid-70s Doctor Who episodes lately, so was particularly saddened to hear that actress Elisabeth Sladen passed away today. She co-starred with Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker as the Doctor’s sidekick Sarah Jane Smith. The actress returned to the role in the spinoff series The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Just a week ago I finished watching The Hand of Fear, which was Sarah Jane’s final episode on the original series. I felt that it would be an appropriate farewell to re-post this clip.

Things have been busy since SXSW. I’ve been writing for The Neighborhood and working on the next Pirate Planet album. I’ve also been obsessively watching Doctor Who Classic and dealing with endless cat problems at home. I plan to eventually have some actual content for this blog. In the meantime, check out this album from my friend Caleb’s old band 3001, and marvel at this creepy trailer for The Horror of Fang Rock.
