Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. In lieu of a love letter, I have put together a round-up for you 😘.
- A compilation of Richard working his eyebrows… He does it so well. Posted by captain-flint
- An excerpt from a review of the Doctor Who Gallifrey franchise, focussing on Richard as Rassilon. Sounds as if I have to listen to that, next… Posted by astrovian
- Must-see this week and on this day: Riepu10’s Valentine cards. She makes these *every year*, and they are always fun. Have a look and leave her some love in return
- SPOILER alert: Richard being the baddie in Spacesweepers, giffed by astrovian
- And for those who think that Sullivan is Valentine-worthy, here’s riepu10’s take on him
- An oldie from years ago, but this Valentine’s edit by applefia2036 still looks great
– as does the chap in it
- Hm, discuss this opinion by gwen-ever…
- Lovely Valentine’s edit by angelpretend

- In truth, I might even flash more than an ankle, let-djaqsayfuck
I’ve stopped here because I was more interested in making this gif for you:
But in general news – I still have not watched Spacesweepers although I broached the subject with Mr Guylty. He wasn’t outright hostile – probably thanks to me emphasising that RA not only plays a baddie but also has a really ugly beard. *muhahaha* In response, Mr Guylty yesterday decorated a German cake speciality called “Amerikaner” (literally: Americans; it’s a small, round mini cake, covered in lemon icing, which is available in any bakery in Germany; quite popular with children). He iced RA’s face onto the cake, including weird beard, and wrote “I ❤️ Sonja” on it…
With the weather cold and windy, we have stayed in for most of last week. I did some crafty stuff, which means I got stuck into the latest David Hewson audio book, performed by RA. I am equally repelled as I am fascinated by the story. (The older I get, the harder I find the whole Nazi stuff to stomach. Admittedly, the Nazis do not deserve anything other than the same nasty schnell, schnell, Schweinehund pastiche they receive. Giving them any kind of depth, would possibly mean we’d develop empathy or even sympathy. But yeah, suffice to say that I find it difficult to reconcile my identity as a German with that image.) It also doesn’t help that I generally am developing a true hatred of how Hewson writes women in his stories. While men are the protagonists in this particular story, there are a number of female secondary characters, the main of which certainly does not come across as a loveable character.
Well, maybe that is the ambiguous depth I was missing in the Nazis? It feels like a bit of a theme in Hewson’s work, and it puts me off. Just *my* personal opinion, so don’t let that taint *your* enjoyment of Hewson. I have another 4 hours to go on the book, which means that at least I have the soft tones of RA to enjoy.
So there, have a nice Valentine Sunday, all!
