Should I be watching Dr. Who and blogging? Probably not, but I am. I should be reading History or my Web Design Dreamweaver text. I just saw “Blink” from Season 3, Episode 10.I had seen the newer one with the Weeping Angels, the scariest of the Dr. Who monsters to me. A delightful episode in which Sally Sparrow helps the Doctor retrieve his Tardis.
I recognized the actress, Carey Mulligan, who stared in the film “An Education” which I previous blogged about. I quite like her.
Here is a clip from “Blink”
“The Angels have the phone box. I have that on a tee shirt.” lol
So do not read because I am going to give it away. As I told you I was watching a Dr. Who marathon, trying to catch up. The first episode I watched was this one, Vincent & The Doctor. The actor Tony Curran would have made Vincent proud, a much better looking version of my favorite artist. Really enjoyable treatment of the scenes and things that van Gogh painted.
You’ve been warned. 🙂
In one of the last scenes the Doctor takes van Gogh to a museum showing his work. Dr. Who ask the curator what he thinks of the artist within Vincent’s ear shot. Well you will have to watch it to hear what he says, but I cried. It was so moving. lol
My paper on Wagner is not great but I made a Power Point presentation to accompany it.
