I like the fact that the two most well-known uses for lithium are treating people who are bipolar, and making batteries, which are also bipolar but in a completely different way.

David Tennant and Elisabeth Sladen - Photoshoot for The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith
Excerpt from DWM #440 - David Tennant on Elisabeth Sladen:
"There was something magical about Lis, something that she had that you can't really bottle. [...] Lis brought this extraordinary kind of febrile, warm, tender, emotional sort of joy to the part. That was Lis." "After all those years, Sarah Jane lived again, and breathed again, and was, if anything, bigger than she had been back in the day... what an extraordinary achievement. Looking back on it now, it probably doesn't seem as massive a gamble as it was, but I remember, at the time, people going, 'This is quite an odd thing to do, to bring back a character from a 1970s television programme, and then give her her own show, and expect everyone to fall in love with her.' Russell knew that it would work. He had absolute belief, and of course he was right, because he understood how great Lis was, how special she was, and that that hadn't been appreciated. There was a lot of potential there. The fact that she came back as the same character... Lis will always be remembered for that."

Start reading Episode 1
Dialogue transcripts:
Panel 1 Prof. Aronnax: <I am relieved that you are fluent in French, Mrs. Norton. Usually my friend Conseil aids me when English is spoken, but he is away for a time.>
Panel 2 Aronnax: <I beg you excuse the mess as well. I am quite hopeless without him.> Irene (offscreen): <Oh, please don’t worry. I’m glad you could see us on such short notice.>
Panel 3 Aronnax (offscreen): <And what brings you here today? Perhaps it is concerning my recent paper on deep-sea mollusks?> Irene: <Nothing so fascinating, I’m afraid. My husband and I have a small quarterly newspaper back home, in a coastal town populated by fishers and whalers.>
Panel 4 Irene: <We heard you had a bit of an adventure at sea a few years ago, and thought our readers would enjoy an account of your experiences.> Aronnax: <Adventure? What, ah, what do you mean?>
Panel 5 Irene: <We were intrigued by reports that you were found off the northeast coast of South America, miraculously unhurt and in perfect health, after several months lost at sea.>
Panel 6 Aronnax: <There is, ah, really not much to tell. My companions and I washed up on a deserted island, but survived quite well thanks to one being a top-class harpoonist. Bless him!>
Panel 7 Godfrey: … Aronnax (offscreen): <The details are, ah, quite dull, really.>

see the thing is i don’t particularly enjoy poirot in isolation. the tv show was right and christie was wrong: he needs a stable circle to both annoy and be annoyed by in order to really cook, and without that all you’re left with is a mustache and a series of elaborate family trees. david suchet is the best actor to have ever played the character, hands down, but there’s only so much you can do with a character who is only ever a visitor someplace.
christie’s work tends toward the mechanical, so adding a little domestic mess with hastings, lemon, and japp makes poirot not just more human but actively *interesting* in his own right. i don’t remember a single thing about the murder victims or their killers, but i will never forget the withering stare miss lemon gave hastings when he wondered why a man would ever die his hair, or the fact that both japp and poirot goes to rose shows. in fiction as in life, a man needs friends and hobbies to be complete.

Victorian ingenuity: a mahogany "reading station" crafted by Charles Hindley & Co. circa 1890. It features a double wing-back seat with an arm divider, each seat equipped with an adjustable reading stand, various compartments, drawers, and bookshelves.

God, his Lordship's rambling is really apparent when in audio.
What if I responded to finishing all the Lord Peter books by starting them over again but in audio form this time...
(This is what I'm doing. Right now.)
