Fandom Goodie the First: Fic! About Nyssa! Written for me! From a prompt I'd half-forgotten I left at femme_fic. Which is in no way a criticism of malinaldarose for posting it three months after reveal day, since (a) I didn't write anything for the ficathon myself, (b) life happens, and (c) she wrote fic! About Nyssa! For me! "While There's Life" captures the dynamic among the early-Fifth-Doctor-era TARDIS crew perfectly, gives my girl back just a little of her lost homeworld, and spins an adventure very much in keeping with the tone and feel of early-80s Doctor Who. Go check out the lovely!

Fandom Goodie the Second: There are a couple new shows I caught my first glimpses of in one of BBC America's kitchen-sink trailers over the holidays. One is Outcasts, a sci-fi series shot in South Africa that's giving me a bit of an updated Earth 2 vibe: small group of colonists with different agendas, character-focussed, and maybe some surprises in store from their new world. The ensemble includes Amy Manson (a plus for me, as she sort of sneaked up on being one of my favorite up-and-coming actors, and I haven't heard so much as a whiff of a rumor of Daisy being around in BH S3) and Jamie Bamber, and from the trailer it has quite a striking look.



On YouTube.

I haven't gone looking for the BBCA airdates yet, but it starts in the UK sometime in February.

Oooh. I was sold the moment you mentioned Earth 2, and it does indeed look striking.

The comparison just occurred to me today. Whoever runs the official Twitter feed for the show had never heard of it, but promised to track down DVDs and check it out. ;->
