I realise this isn’t exactly news about gaming or other geekery, but I feel this worthy of a news posting because without this man, we simply would not be here today. And in case you did not know who this man was (WTF!?), he is essentially the father of computer science and was crucial in helping the UK and its allies to defeat Nazi Germany by cracking their secret codes.
This caught me by surprise, I knew very little about it, and I loved Cloud Atlas by the Wachowskis so I’m rather hopeful for this film – plus I love my grand space opera so yes, rather excited.
Yes, it had that intro. Lovely it was too.
Bit late (last week of NaNoWriMo consumed me) but my thoughts on the 50th special of Doctor Who are below.
Overall I thought it was actually excellent, I had (deliberately) set my expectations very low, as there was huge pressure from all sides to deliver something stunning which meets fans expectations, the BBC’s own expectations – and to a larger extent all the other people who casually drop in and out wondering what the fuss is all about.
Spoilers. To obviously and inevitably quote River.
