Mark Gatiss Has Murdered Sleep.
Just finished a great book by Mark Gatiss called The Roundheads and I have long been a fan of his work in the many fields he works in and I always look forward to whatever it is he is up to. I especially loved his time with The League Of Gentlemen and the MR James biography he did for BBC Two. I wonder if he has ever been troubled by sleepless nights,I certainly think with this story he might inspire a few.
It is about time Reece Shearsmith appeared in Doctor Who. I remember watching him in A Field In England and thinking I was watching the next Doctor. He never has to raise his voice to unnerve and his comedic timing is excellent. There is just something Timelordy about him.
Nice to hear the Doctor quote a bit of Shakespeare without name dropping past association.
There is a touch of Prospero about Peter Capaldi.
I suppose it is because The Tardis is like a magic island in space.
