He's back!

*Yeah!* for David Tennant! Yesterday evening he returned to play Hamlet at the Novello Theatre. Some slight alterations were made for him (he doesn't have to pull Polonius off the stage for example) - still no guarantees that he'll perform every night next week, but I'm so happy right now, hoping that I might actually see him.
I'd like to thank my boss, who wouldn't give me time off in December so I had to postpone my trip to London until January. She might have earned herself a souvenir for that ;)

btw: the evening programme for my trip is now complete! Booked the last ticket today. It actually is theatre/musical every night. Thursday: Hamlet, Friday: Oliver!, Saturday: Avenue Q. Might be a bit of an overkill, but then I don't get to London that often, so I have to make the most of it.

I'm torn...

between desperately trying to ignore the fact that David Tennant is stepping down as the Doctor and wanting to know who'll be Doctor no. 11.
Not much longer though - the BBC announced that the identity of the next Doctor will be revealed tomorrow in a special of "Doctor Who Confidential", which will air on BBC 1 at 5:35 pm.
I'm scared - what if I don't like who they chose? But then before I saw the first episode with the 10th Doctor I was equally afraid that I might not like David Tennant. Guess I'll just have to trust Steven Moffat & Co. - I'm sure they know what they're doing... I hope...

What is it with the British today? Only bad news on my favourite shows...
First David Tennant announces to step down from Doctor Who (*cries*) and now I switch on the news and it says Russell Brand resigned from the BBC (ok, that's something I'm not particularly sad about) and Jonathan Ross is on suspension (what the f***!?) for a radio stunt they pulled! What the heck was that about? Did they make death threats to someone or what?
Hell, the only thing that could be worse would be Stephen Fry quitting QI - and after a morning like this I wouldn't be surprised if that happened later on today as well...

OMG, I did it! I managed to get a ticket for the RSC's Hamlet, starring David Tennant in London next January! I'm so happy right now, I can't believe my luck. As predicted the servers of the RSC's and Delfont Mackintosh's (the theatre company) booking systems couldn't manage the amount of people trying to buy over the internet and more or less crashed, but after only 40 minutes of hitting the speed dial on my mobile I managed to get through to the theatre and book a ticket. Hell, I can't wash the grin off my face... Now the only things missing are a flight to London and a decent hotel. *goes planning fabulous weekend*

Here they are - my latest icons. Mostly taken from "Human Nature" and "The Family of Blood", but also a few leftovers from other episodes.
