Ok. [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey asked for:

Top five Doctor Who episodes to watch while drunk
Top five actors you wish could be the Doctor

There is no way in HELL I can do the first one. I wouldn't even know where to begin. But, despite my shit ability at fantasy casting, I'll give the second one a go.

If only they could be Doctors... )

[livejournal.com profile] jigglykat asked for:

Top five favorite moments in Ashes to Ashes.

80's awesomeness under here... )

And finally, [livejournal.com profile] airie_fairy wants:

top 5 drunk Benny moments

I'm actually going to alter that one a little bit and go with top 5 Benny moments involving alcohol.

My girl loves her booze... )

All day long, I couldn't stop thinking about her. Keeley Hawes is totally my crush of the moment. I spent hours last night looking for pics of her. Of course that means a picspam. But first, a couple of adorable candid shots from Ashes to Ashes:

How ridiculously cute are those?!?!?! I can't believe I'd never seen them before.

Now, on to my favorite Keeley pics. Follow me... )

So, as I am me, the first thing I wanted to do after falling madly in love wih this show was read fanfic. Sadly, I didn't have all that much luck finding good stuff. It appears that people aren't writing for it and that makes me very, very sad. I did, however, find a few excellent stories and I'm gonna rec them here.

One Flash of Light but No Smoking Pistol by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch (Alex/Gene, PG-13)

Sweet Little Pills by [livejournal.com profile] fated_addiction (Alex/Gene, PG-13)

A Horizontal Thread by [livejournal.com profile] ms_smilla (Alex/Gene, G)

This Means Nothing to Me by [livejournal.com profile] flecalicious (Alex/Gene, G)

And with these last two, PLEASE don't be put off by the fact that they are on ff.net. This author has Gene's voice down amazingly well and both of these stories are really dark and bitter. I enjoyed the hell out of them.

All the Madmen by Ruby Scott (Alex/Gene, R-ish)

Satin and Tat by Ruby Scott (Alex/Gene, PG-13)

If any of you know of some other well written Ashes to Ashes fic, PLEASE SHARE!!!

I just read this:

Filming on series two will begin in the summer and Ashes to Ashes will return to BBC One in 2009.


A year? A fucking YEAR?!?! Oh god, why.

I weep.

Ok. I surrender. I watched 3 more episodes of Ashes to Ashes last night and I am totally hooked. The costuming, the music, the cinematography, the acting, all fantastic. The writers fascination with being as offensive as possible is still pretty pathetic, but the characters and actors manage to overcome that and be incredibly compelling. I absolutely ADORE the fact that Alex is drunk all the time, and dresses like a tart, and sleeps with random losers, and calls her co-workers "figments", and is so desperate for her mother's approval, and EVERYTHING really. I just love Alex Drake.

I have also discovered that Gene Hunt is a more complex and sympathetic character than he appeared at first glance. He's still a complete fuckstick most of the time, but he's interesting and engaging and has flashes of being a better man. This show totally has me. I mean, shit. I've got an icon already. I think that really says it all.
