Sorry for the absence for a few days — and especially for not having the ebook version of the Kinks book finished yet. I’ve not been very well. I will, however, have a post up tomorrow on Mindless Ones about tonight’s Doctor Who.
Speaking of which… the reason there haven’t been any Bigger On The Outside posts for a while here is that I’ve decided to combine that book with the “Fifty Stories For Fifty Years” I’m doing on Mindless Ones, and put them out as a single book when they’re finished. During the next five weeks, while I’m looking at new Who on that site, I’ll post a couple more Bigger On The Outside essays which will fit into the book. I’m also going to start the next Beach Boys book next week.
I’ve also, though, been working on something I’m not allowed to talk about, but which is going to be *very* exciting…
Anyway, here’s some links:
Alex and Richard start their look at the Doctor Who New Adventures with Timewyrm: Genesis

Ellie Mae O’Hagan asks when paid work became the only thing we value and, relatedly, Jennie asks politicians to stop talking about “hard-working families” — and at least one of them listened!
