$Every geek knows that one weekend in the summer is the most important weekend to spend online, San Diego Comic Con weekend. Every year, I think of making the big trip to San Diego but up till now I haven’t done it yet (It’s still on my bucket list). This weekend I’ve spent many hours watching actor/ studio panels and trailers that have been released especially for SDCC.

BBCs Midsummer Night’s Dream

624

Back in 2008, I was fortunate enough to see Midsummer Night’s Dream live in Stratford-upon-Avon. When I say fortune I mean the RSC was playing three Shakespeare plays at the same time and I traveled to there to see Hamlet with David Tennant.

The following is the story, so of course SPOILERS!

Doctor Who Season 9 finale

Watching the roller coaster of a season that was the 9th season of Doctor Who. Really I do mean rollercoaster, there were ups and downs,  there was the departure of a companion,  we got to know Ashildr and her alter ego Lady Me. And just generally the writing got better, the Toby Whithouse episode in which a deaf signing actress was kinda the star. We saw the return of Missy,  that Michelle Gomez was cast as her can’t be denied as being one of the best casting choices ever! Ingrid Oliver as double and maybe even triple Osgood – the one character all Whovians see themselves being.
