Splendid, Jon.
May I suggest sabre, though? It seems more in keeping with the period. I can give you pointers if you wish.

Good point, Rachel. Although I could use a few tips. Are you available for seconding duties? You sound like you know what you're doing.

Be advised O Alien One, that I have offered my services as second to the esteemed Baroness, having insider knowledge of the challenger's vulnerability to a well directed blunt pun. (Of course, if the world had only listened to …Time? Lord…™ days ago, none of this would have been necessary *exits mumbling*

Ha. Fie upon you, traitorous double-barrelled cur!

Just realised I forgot to provide a link to the trailer (in case there's anyone out there who hasn't seen it yet): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiEvcuVeA64

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
