Doctor Who was good this week. I only drive-by post to say that the scene with the cyberman was a homage to this scene from The Thing. Because it's a kids' show they had to remove the one line of dialogue, which is my favourite from any SF film: 'You have got to be fucking kidding'.

You know, the more I think about it, this line would work in most SF films. The Terminator emerges from the flames, flesh burnt off; the alien larva bursts from Caine's chest and shoots off into the ship's interior; Priss does a back-flip and catches Deckard's head between her android thighs; Jason Nesmith realises he's not on the set of an SF show, he's in outer space. You have got to be fucking kidding. But 'you' (I assume the universe is being addressed) are not.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
