DW, Radio, University and Other Shiz

So, this past few days have been great. Firstly, the new Doctor has been revealed, and I enjoyed seeing people rant about various things, like:

*The Radical Feminists moaning that they didn’t cast a woman, or an actor who is an ethnic minority

* Super DW/Torchwood fans complaining that he was in Torchwood prior to DW

*Others moan he was in Skins, or other shows, and that they should of cast an unknown actor, rather like Matt Smith was prior to DW glory

* And a couple of folk grumbled softly that Peter looks and sounds a bit too much  like David Tennent (well, they are both Scottish)

I’m okay with the fact that he is a male. It would of been nice to see a woman or an actor of ethnic minority to play the role. When some people also moan that the Doctor is never portrayed by someone who identifies as LBGT* I sigh, what about Jack Harkness? The DW universe also portrays a marriage between two female characters, so I believe the LBGT* community is covered in the show. They must of cast him based on previous experience, which shows that he knows the genre very well, and is able to put that experience into DW. So what if he was in other shows prior to this role? Contrary to popular belief, e still has to earn a living, so naturally would of done a few other shows other than Torchwood/DW. And the David Tennent look/sound alike? Just purely coincidental. I wasn’t so keen on him straight away, but I am warming to the idea. I’ll just be gutted to see my Matt go.

I also got the Radio job! I start my express training on Wednesday! I will be helping to host with another university student who will be off to Cambridge in September, whilst I…


Yes, I found out today that I got into my first choice university, as I was in a meeting with my social workers, and they were trying to sort out my deposit for the room in halls, especially as my place wasn’t confirmed on UCAS, and the Student Services looked at my records, and informed my social worker that I have indeed been accepted into the university! Whoop whoop!

So, other than work and general life, all isn’t so bad!
