When fandoms collide

So, I was watching the final episode of Dempsey & Makepeace, and there they are creeping about in some cellar place, all guns drawn, and in danger of being shot by the bad guy, and suddenly we get this:

And my first thought is "Don't blink!" But in actual fact she's not even looking at the thing, so blinking is the least of her concerns. Turn around, Harry! Quickly! And then, as an added bit of Whoification, the Rani was in the same episode, pretending to be a cop. She got deaded, which was a bit rubbish of her, but I'm assuming she regenerated when they weren't looking. Anyway, it wasn't a very good episode, sadly - rather an unfortunate one to end on, although I'm pretty sure they didn't know at the time that it was the last one - but you know things are bad when a supposedly exciting creep-about-in-the-dark-with-guns, is less exciting than wondering whether a statue might be an evil alien. Hey ho.

Mind you, later on they did loads of stuff filmed in the Natural History Museum, and that was lovely. They had dinosaurs and everything, including a fabulous cross-section through a giant sequoia. They didn't visit my whale though. Still, it's not often that a cop show gives you dinosaurs, so that was good.

Bye then, Dempsey and Makepeace. It's been fun. Now I shall be all Remingtonsteeley for the foreseeable future. No time-travelling alien monster statues in that, at least so far. Tom Baker, but no evil statues. I will report back if one turns up though, have no fear.

I really enjoyed watching the Dempsey and Makepeace eps. Thank you very much!

I would've thought "Don't blink" as well ... ;-)

I'm glad I'm not the only one!

And Soolin should know this! She's been around the galaxy a few times.

Angels and a tad Buffy-ish as well:) Blimey, it seemed like only yesterday you'd started re-watching D&M, but then I'm the slowest of them all. I did enjoy the sub-Crocodile Dundee bit in the museum. I thought it was British blokes who were rubbish at love, poor Dempsey has been in Blighty for too long.

I'm surprised at how quickly I went through them as well. Thirty episodes in almost exactly two months. Given that it's taken me about three years to get through three "Sapphire & Steel" assignments, this may be something of a new speed record for me.

I keep wanting to write "Sapphire & Steele". I have Pierce Brosnan on the brain.

Tell him to get off so you can write a S&S and Remington Steele crossover;p

Steele meets Steel?! My fingers would run away from home.
