My UK publisher continues to surprise me with trailers. It is like Christmas and my birthday and the anniversary of my first taste of chocolate, all rolled into one. With a lovely cup of tea on the side.

I don't even. I think I am going to lie down now.

(Dear Orchard Books people: By which I mean to say, it is lovely. Thank you.)

Thanks to a tip from [ profile] lizbee and the diligent re-encoding efforts of [ profile] voodoo_in_tx, I have just seen the new UK promo for Lost and am laughing so hard I can't breathe. Oh man, that's sheer brilliance. They must have had such fun making it. And now I need an icon of Mad!Conductor!Locke...

Thanks to Cheryl for pointing me to this trailer for the new Pride and Prejudice:

Is it September 16th yet?

With apologies to most of my friendslist, I've never been a Colin Firth fan, or at least I've never understood what was supposed to be so attractive about him, as Darcy or otherwise. Matthew MacFadyen, on the other hand? I've never seen the guy in anything before (or if I have, I didn't notice him enough to recall the name), but after this trailer, I am sold. Besides, Donald Sutherland as Mr. Bennet! And Judi Dench as Lady Catherine!

I think Mr. Collins is a bit too good-looking, though.

ETA: Oh, so MacFadyen is from Spooks/MI-5, is he? He looks a lot more baby-faced with short hair. But I've heard good things about the show so I'm going to assume he can act.
*gibbers incoherently*

Dude, I mean, I've already seen the first episode of the new Doctor Who and this still blew my mind. (Probably because none of the clips in it are from the first episode, so it was all wonderfully fresh to me.) Only vague spoilers, if you can even call them that.

Go watch it! (Third link down, right-click and save, please.) And then comment!

The first teaser trailer for the new series is up and EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I know there isn't much to it, but the way Christopher Eccleston says "I'm the Doctor, by the way" was just... I must have listened to it five times. It gave me shivers. Happy/scared "this-show-I-love-more-than-anything-is-really-coming-back-I-can't-believe-it" shivers.

My first, my oldest fandom. Indeed, one of the oldest fandoms there is -- certainly one of the oldest SF fandoms, anyway. It gave me screaming nightmares when I was eight but I could. not. stay. away. And that was years before Peter Davison came on board as the Fifth Doctor (and my first real teengirl crush). I have a huge box of the Virgin New Adventures and BBC Eighth Doctor novels (*nods respectfully at [ profile] kateorman and [ profile] jblum for providing me with many hours of reading pleasure*) plus a bunch of videos (*grins thankfully at [ profile] avarill*). When I heard there was going to be a new series produced and written by people whose names and credentials I actually recognized and whose work I'd already enjoyed (Rob Shearman!!!) I could hardly believe it.

Is it spring yet? Forget the sixth HP book, I want my Doctor Who!!!

And wouldn't you know, I deleted my last DW icon yesterday. D'oh! I need to make a new one...

I've just watched the PoA trailer for the first time. Anything that opens with Snape doing wordless magic has to be cool. But oh, my goodness...


Chills up my spine, people. Chills.
