Both of them have a slightly sweary contribution from me. On the Pod Delusion I am only slightly sweary; it's an adaptation and expansion of this blog post from the other day. The Pod Delusion is one of my very favourite podcasts, and I always get squeeful when I'm on it.

On the Eleventh Hour I am very sweary indeed, partly because they asked for contributions from female listeners about swearing in the show, and the use of one particular word. So if you don't like that word, and I think you can guess what word it is, don't listen. Also, if you don't like long and rambling podcasts about Doctor Who you'll probably not want to listen to it.

Well, if you can call it a review, because mostly I just want to spew out superlatives. That was astoundingly good.

I'll get the negatives out of the way first: there was an amount of genderfail, but given the setting that was entirely realistic (and there was an awesome little old lady). The effects weren't mindblowing either, but that was never what this film was about. It's all about the growth and character development of the people in it and the story is only really there to drive that development.

The plot is pretty simple, but it's rich enough to hang some beautiful character studies off. spoilers! )

All in all, this is an excellent slice of British cinema, and it's a crying shame that it's going to be one of the Film Council's last hurrahs because the Film Council has been abolished...
