Flying Away, Metaphorically

It's been a tough 24 hours for Mike and his wobbly brain. Through the love and timely words of friends and family (❤️) I am definitely coming out the other side.It also feels like I've turned a massive corner in my stuckness of the past year and am no longer living in the past but looking to the future. I am experiencing an exciting newness and hope that I've not had for far too long.Out of adversity comes hope, out of hope comes action. On a scale of 1 to 10 I have ranged from 1 and am, as I write this, climbing to a 5.
Never alone.

My Dr Who reckons

Jodie Whittaker is an excellent Dr Who and I hope we see at least another two, hopefully even more, series from her.

My only issue is with her 'breathy' acting as the Doctor, it makes everything seem "urgent", everything is at "level emergency, all things are full on go", and much like using CAPITALS ALL THE TIME, can be quite draining and also numbs me to the fluctuations. The quiet times are LOUD, the mid times are LOUD, and the loud times are LOUD. Anyway, that's my one and only view on someone else's acting.

The second series writing and plots are much 'better', that is to say it's closer to what I like in a Dr Who - a bit of mystery behind what's happening, and an underlying multi-episode arc. 

Having said that, I'm not adverse to the social commentary episode type from series one, maybe just not each and every one, or at least wrapped up within a wider plot.

Graham has always been the best out of the thirteenth Dr Who's 'companions', however Yasmin and Ryan are becoming much more rounded which makes for a much deeper ensemble.
All in all, I'm liking this series of Dr Who, and that makes me smile.
