[sticky post] Welcome post

Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My LJ is mostly for fic, recs, icons, vids and fannish nonsense - fic/vids/icons etc. remain open, but the rest has got largely flocked these days (people were scraping entries via tags, unfortunately). I'm terribly obscure and multi-fannish, but generally happy to make new friends. I crosspost from Dreamwidth, too, but tend to read my flist via LJ.

My fic:
lost_spook on AO3
vvj5 at A Teaspoon and An Open Mind (the Doctor Who archive)

My vids:
lostspook1 at YouTube

Current & Past Prompt tables etc: genprompt_bingo card (Round 11) | Fourth Doctor Era - 6 Prompts (for dw_allsorts) | Historical for dw_allsorts | Hurt/Comfort Bingo Card | Trope Bingo card | 100 Element Prompts | 50 Ficlets | Shakespeare Plays Watched.

Also the 500 Prompts Meme. runaway_tales: Masterpost here.

Dear Yuletide Letter 2016 here

Notes on permission: Any remixes etc. based on fanworks of mine are fine - go ahead, and do let me know; I'd be thrilled. And, obviously, credit is nice. No posts made here to be reproduced elsewhere, thanks. If you wish to link to any open posts, of course, please do so!

If you would like to friend me and we haven't already interacted, please drop me a comment to say hi.

Oh, I have just been watching one of the old Holmes adaptations - the BBC 1965 with Douglas Wilmer and Nigel Stock. And while I have enjoyed various other Holmes things (I have alwasy found myself enjoying of but never fannish), I adored them for some reason & even felt fannish. I'm not sure whether this is just me and 60s TV these days, or what...

I have watched some Raffles, but I was mainly in it for the pilot, which has James Maxwell as Inspector McKenzie, and Amazon lied to me about its S1 set having James Maxwell (blatantly and shamelessly), which made me resent it unfairly. But Anthony Valentine was excellent, of course. (It was just definitely better when it had JM as well. :lol:)

Oh, that's cool! I've had that recommended to me actually. Will try to get round to it after the 1954 Ronald Howard (and then there's the Bert Coules radioplays)... a quick google image search seems to tell me Roger Delgado is in it! Speak of the devil. That'll be fun.

I'm not 100% sure what I think of Anthony Valentine purely based on his looks (I get picky about that stuff), but we shall see!

It does have bonus Roger Delgado indeed! It also has Patrick Troughton, although not in the same episode. Old telly is never less than highly incestuous. I find it quite comforting. :-)

Oh, sorry, I was assuming you must have watched it if you liked it, for some reason. Anthony Valentine is always good and it was his signature part, really. Christopher Strauli is the most naive innocent alive as Bunny. My real problem with it (when I'm not having stupid favourite actor sulks) is that I'm too law-abiding. I can take an episode and enjoy it and after that I get stressed because they keep stealing things! I had the same problem when I tried to watch Hustle. I have to stick to the detectives, it seems.

Oh yes. Current telly, too - my mum says that watching British mystery tv is a bit like a family reunion because it's all familiar faces, haha.

they keep stealing things! I KNOW. I'm torturing myself slowly by reading the books atm, and every time they come up with some new harebrained plan (well, I say "they") I'm practically reading through my fingers. It's a train wreck of dysfunction but I can't seem to stop watching it unfold ;)

At least Robin Hood had a decent excuse... /o\
