    My favourite Miller production was his The Mikado for the ENO. He had a knack for blowing away tradition and saying ‘well, why can’t we stage it this way?’

    Agreed. If you haven’t read or seen anything of his, you should try to.

    Hi! Resolution was the New Years Day Special for 2019. It’s not on the front page anymore because of the two retrospectives.

    You have to buy the DVD separately from the Series 11 box set – which is probably why you’re not remembering it as part of Series 11.

    The forum for Resolution is here. You didn’t miss much – for some reason it…[Read more]

    @thane16 @pedant and @mudlark

    How To Boil An Egg by Jan Arkless is still in print in the UK, so might be available in Australia. It’s been updated since our time, with more veggie dishes and a few more modern recipes. I second @pedant – great book.

    Another fun book to read when you set out on your own is Katharine Whitehorn’s Cooking in a…[Read more]

    There is no Elmo,and A Muppet’s Christmas Carol is brilliant. Surprisingly faithful to the novel, as well, considering there’s a blue furry Charles Dickens.

    @thane16 Congratulations O Spawn for completing Year 12! Special congratulations on surviving both your philosophy teacher and your history teacher.

    I have to admit, “The Uzbeks are orthodox Jewish people from Slovakia or Slovenia” is the spectacular mistake which worries me most. It sounds like a badly remembered alt right internet meme.…[Read more]

    @whisht

    I’m not sure I agree. Firstly, ‘Missy’ is a very particular choice of Nom de Guerre, especially given the nature of the character when our Missy joined our forum.

    Secondly, how do we teach children and young people to defend themselves against the genuinely offensive if we allow them to protect themselves against ever hearing contrarian…[Read more]

    @missy and everyone

    I must have missed this one the first time round. Oh, the life of a gender neutral job title. 😀

    Anyway, the use of ‘actor’ for females as well as males predates PC culture. There’s two reasons for it – one is simply that an actor plays both male and female roles. I’m an actor (f) who generally plays roles (f) – but I’ve…[Read more]

    I think the modern writer basically has two choices with Dracula.
    1/ Go for Bram Stoker’s evil monster.
    2/ Go the ‘Saberhagen’ route and base Dracula on (to some extent) the real Vlad Tepes.

    That’s a very short teaser, but it has hints that Moffat and Gatis are basing this one on the novel’s ‘evil monster’ to at least some extent. It…[Read more]

    That looks promising.

    I don’t think I started it, either. 😀

    Okay, a bit of background to where I’m coming from. When Buffy was first broadcast I was – variously – either rehearsing or performing during drama training, rehearsing and performing in fringe or doing the exciting tours of old people’s homes and sports halls that the average young actor does.

    I…[Read more]

    Aha! Yes, I had heard of the Eureka Rebellion, but hadn’t realised Eureka was part of Ballarat.

    Amazing how often democracy starts with ‘we aren’t paying this @*$! tax!’ 🙂

  • @pedant

    The time limit’s gone and it’ll need a mod, I’m afraid.

    I did think about it, but BTVS Series 6 has been out in the wild for eighteen years (counting from the premiere). Also, @winston said she was working from a DVD box set, and the big picture of Sarah Michelle Gellar on the DVD is a teeny bit of a hint. Not to mention the truly…[Read more]
