Welcome to the Saturday the 20th of May edition of Gallifrey Times!

Editor's Note: bit late today, sorry. I went far too far down the rabbit hole of the website the first link is to, and actually hurt my stomach muscles laughing so hard. The recipes are hilarious!

Welcome to the Friday the 19th of May edition of Gallifrey Times!

Editor's Note: for no particular reason today, I wish to remind everybody that we provide links that we think Whovians might be interested in, not ones that we necessarily think everyone will approve of. I know there's at least one link today that some people will object to; equally, others would like to see it. We err on the side of more information here at GT, and hope you are all ok with that.

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex and [personal profile] icon_uk debate the definition of "folklore":

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Not to be pedantic, but (werewolves being vulnerable only to silver bullets) is strictly Hollywood - any old bullet will do. Don't muck up your folkloric credentials now!

ICON_UK: As folklore is more or less completely made up, I fail to see how Hollywood isn't as valid a source as anywhere else, considering how humans everywhere always LOVE turning things into stories.

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Well, the way I look at it, Hollywood folklore is stuff you KNOW is made up - traditional folklore has generally been around for a long time, and at least stands a chance of being true. Personally, I'm a bit of a mystical type by inclination, so I prefer to give it the benefit of the doubt.

ICON_UK: I think I'm more of a Granny Weatherwax type in such things. Folklore is lore told by "folk", and how reliable have people you think of as "folk" ever been? :)

Editor's Note: I haven't watched Oxygen yet because I had to be on a train when the show was on, but I gather it was quite good...?

All the Universe is a stage

The Radio Times has added Luke Treadaway to the list of actors rumoured to be up for playing the 13th Doctor. Google that and Sacha Dhawan also comes up as a possible contender.

Ignoring Dhawan's earlier link with the Whoniverse (he played Waris Hussein, one of the first directors to work on Doctor Who in 1963, in "An Adventure in Space and Time") I'm amused that if it's Treadaway he, like Pearl Mackie, will have come to the show having been in the stage production of "The Curious Case of the Dog in the Nightime" and, if it's Dhawan, he was a History Boy, like Matt Smith before him.

All hail the N.T. (National Theatre)

I am behind on everything at the minute, and only had a chance to see Knock, Knock earlier today!

I am though slowly getting back into the knack of meta/reviewing and, as I'm not blogging at the moment, I'm sticking these up on AO3. If you're interested they are here: The Pilot, Smile, & Thin Ice.

Thanks. Comments are always welcome...

I have an imported Flexible Squares layout, but I can't tell who is who on my reading page here on DW. On LJ, the user name or community would show up underneath the userpic. What string of code in which layer will allow that to show up?

I presume it's being overwritten by something in DW layers, or because of the difference in naming between 'friends' on LJ and 'reading' on DW, it isn't showing up correctly.

If anyone's wondering what kind of day today is, it's the kind of day where I put a pot on to boil for pasta, and come back five minutes later to find the pot's hob cold and the one under the chopping board has melted the chopping board and a plastic container-lid.

Meanwhile, a Good Recipe from last weekend. Adapted from Campion & Curtis' In The Kitchen.
