Thank the gods there's plenty of good trash on telly to divert me. BRITANNIA, THE TERROR 2, HIS DARK MATERIALS, SPIRAL, GOLD DIGGER, and the curious GIRI/HAJI are all very diverting. The upcoming WAR OF THE WORLDS and VIENNA BLOOD also look promising.
I'm really enjoying the bargain copy of James Kochalka's AMERICAN ELF I snaffled for £2.00 the other day. Super stuff; so simple, yet so absorbing.
