Oh, fandom

I am not spoilerphobic but nor am I highly spoilerphilic. I quite like being surprised (I remain impressed by the fact that they managed to hide Rose's appearance in PiC from everyone) but I'm not willing to withdraw from fandom entirely to avoid knowing anything. So I sort of bimble not making a special effort to find things out, but not making a special effort to avoid the But I am not sure I am going to cope if things are going to be at the sort of pitch of wankiness we've got at the moment continually until he regenerates. It's going to be the best part of a year, FFS. Hopefully it will all just go back down to a low level background hiss after a while.)

The bright side is that everyone focusing on the last one means we won't learn too much about the other ones in between. Planet of the Dead is coming up soon and all I know about that is it's got the Bionic Woman from Eastenders and a bus that seems to fail to be Iris's.

Also, I don't think Who's going to win a Hugo this year. The general consensus seems to be that Turn Left is a mediocre dystopic AU with far too much racefail (which I wouldn't disagree with objectively, but I have NO quality standards when it comes to dystopic AUs, so I love those elements of it anyway -- q.v. the way every future the X-Men ever visit is a variant on Days of Future Past and I love it every time; the racefail is hideous, though). The S4 Moffat eps aren't as good as his previous winners, and meanwhile BSG and Lost are both in their final seasons which might gee up their fanbases and everybody seems to have loved Dr Horrible, apart from the people who didn't. It is an open field, it seems to me.
