dbskyler: (Ten looking up)
So it's looking like I am actually going to finish my most longstanding WIP! I am currently just half-a-scene away from completion, which is a big deal considering that I started this thing around, um, 12 years ago? I think that's about right.

It's Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) fanfic (based on the original, 1969 version), which means two things: 1) it's a British show, so needs to be Britpicked; and 2) probably very few people on my flist know the fandom, let alone are interested in it.

But hope springs eternal, so I'm throwing this out here: anyone interested in Britpicking it for me?

Like a lot of people who are into fandom, I have all sorts of old shows on videotape and DVD, and sometimes I wonder why I keep everything because I can go for years without watching a given show. And then for some reason I get in the mood for it, and next thing I know I am marathoning an entire series. Which is what is happening right now with Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).

So there I was watching this show again for the first time in ages, and then I came to the Doctor Who crossover episode and just had to stop and post here about it. It's not really a Doctor Who crossover episode, of course, but it was filmed in 1969 and has both Nicholas Courtney and Roger Delgado in it. It's a fun episode, and what's more, Nicholas Courtney plays a villain and Roger Delgado doesn't! The only thing that would make it better is if the two of them had a scene together, which unfortunately they don't. Or if Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning were also in it, and perhaps John Levene. But it's still a ton of fun, and when I watch it carefully and in slow motion, I'm sure I can spot the TARDIS in one of the closets. Except it's the Master's TARDIS, so it's camouflaged. : )

I'm a little surprised at how much this show has re-eaten my brain. In fact, I've pulled out an old unfinished fanfic and started to edit it a little, and I might even take a whack at finishing it. Not that many people want to read Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) fanfic, but it would be nice to finish a WIP. I just never expected that if I got into the mood for writing again, it would be for this fandom.
