Fake Britain: A Map Of Fictional Locations | Londonist
Includes Leadworth, Scarfolk, Qwghlm, Beanotown, and, of course, Llareggub, but is unaccountably lacking in Little Bazeley and Little-Storping-in-the-Swuff, and I was hoping that it might finally tell me where the Village is.

The Prisoner 001 (2018) | View Comic
Yes folks, it's a modern sequel/revival! (Although I think they have the chessboard in the wrong part of the Village, but perhaps they've relandscaped the lawn in the 52 years since we last saw it.) It's being released one episode per month, with #2 already available. Be seeing you.

Blondie & Philip Glass - 'Heart of Glass (Crabtree Remix)' | daftbeatles - mashups
Yes, it's the one featured on The Handmaid's Tale (s01e03). This is marvellous. Debbie Harry's vocals have never been so haunting, and the relentless textures of Glass' concerto layer against them sumptuously. Best served with a side of slomo splosions and shattering windowpanes, but then so many things are.

‘Brass Eye’ two decades on: the unstoppable genius of Chris Morris | ShortList
Twenty years since we were all suddenly plunged into the braintanglia of rudemath, and with what shocking results.

(My autocorrect already has 'braintanglia'. I wonder why.)

"Oxide Ghosts" screenings | Michael Cumming | latest news
Today is the 20th anniversary of 1997. People did different things then, like watch Brass Eye on its original broadcast. Looks like I've missed the screening of this (and the York one), but there's still... um... Sheffield? Halifax?

Boldly going to television: First teaser for ‘STAR TREK’ series | One. Perfect. Shot.
Can I slingshot around the sun at high warp so this comes faster? No new information, except possibly a tantalizing hint when they say "new crews" plural. What I do know is that it probably isn't STAR TREK: EMPIRE, because I haven't sold it yet.

Don't Cringe in my Backyard ¦ Bella Caledonia
"I believe Scotland is a country rich in stories, that we deserve the dignity of a dedicated news service"... "If [Pacific Quay] make the insecure mistake of looking to London for leadership they will fail in their duty to serve Scottish audiences, and those of us that remain committed to the licence fee." All remaining four of them.

londonkds | Well, that wasn't nice to wake up to
I always thought that the accusations against Moffat were on the overblown side. He wasn't a shining beacon of feminism, but he genuinely adored his subject matter, despite being a bit clueless. Chibnall, on the other hand, seems to be a proper misogynist. Of course I didn't notice any of this myself. I just thought that he was an incredibly shit writer.

Doctor Who: The Web of Fear and The Enemy of the World recovered
I was concerned that the BBC were to announce "a number" of recovered lost episodes when, as Adric would doubtless remind us, zero is a number---but then it turned out to include The Enemy Of The World, which I am totally excited about. Starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor! Guest-starring Patrick Troughton as The Bad Guy! Special-guest-starring Patrick Troughton as The Doctor Pretending To Be The Bad Guy, and briefly as The Bad Guy Pretending To Be The Doctor! Oh yes and also The Web Of Fear, which is apparently great. And has The Brig in it.

How to get under Aaron Sorkin’s skin (and also, how to high-five properly)
Never noticed the masculinity of Sorkin's characters before; to be fair, it's his women too. Looks like The Newsroom might have it's moments---but is it The West Wing?
