Weekly Digest #4

What I’m digging this week.

Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer & Poster

Season Two is coming around Halloween and could there be a better show to hunker down with as the nights draw in? I don’t think so.

So damned excited.

Fat Girl (2001)

This film, man. I can’t believe I’ve only just picked up on it (via the medium of Letterboxd, naturally).

It tells the tale of two sisters, the youngest of whom spends most of her time jealously watching her sibling as she gives in to adult desire. Oh, she’s also fat and constantly eating so right away I’m with her. It’s not at all what I was expecting but it is a satisfyingly accurate study on adolescence, teenage desire and the rivalry between girls.

It’s also one of the most shocking films I’ve seen recently – make of that what you will.

Darling (2015)

Another bloody gem.

Blissfully disgusting, genuinely creepy and stunning to look at, it might not be everybody’s cup of tea as it sometimes veers into hammy territory but I loved it.ย Very fucking cool.

Both this and Fat Girl will be coming to a podcast episode near you soon!

The 13th Doctor Who & the Men Who Can’t Stand It!

I’m not a regular Doctor Who viewer: I dip in and out sometimes because my step son likes it. Despite this, I could not be more stoked for the first female doctor!

Even though I was holding out for Phoebe Waller-Bridge, I’m happy with the choice made. From what I know of Jodie Whittaker (Attack the Block, Adult Life Skills) she’s cool and more than capable of making the role her own. She must feel incredible right now. I think I might start watching again.

As for the men, I know I should be cross about all the misogynistic comments about having a woman Who (and I am) but they’re just so pathetic. Like, honestly, get over yourselves. This is Ghostbusters all over again and you’re turds.

These memes are fucking fantastic, though.

What are you digging this week?

      1. RIGHT! Besides, what do all these dudebros think the Companions been doing with their underdrawers all these decades?!! Ain’t like the 13th Doctor will be sporting the first pair of boobs the TARDIS has ever seen… ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. Exactly! Haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ You know what, off topic I hope the Doctor meets up with Riversong and they’re happier than ever (I don’t watch religiously, Riversong is the Doctor’s wife, right?!) xo

      3. Unh…yeah, I think that happened…? Lol. I take my Doctor Who in erratic bouts of binge-watching, so I’m not always fully up on the details either!

        But I really like your headcanon.


  1. Men are just insecure AF because they know that, like Ginger Rogers, female Dr. Who will do everything a male Dr. Who could do but backwards and in heels.
    My interest in Dr. Who also waxes and wanes, but you know my interest has damn well been piqued now. It’s about TIME (pun sort of/not really intended).

    1. I can’t wait to see her in action, roll on Christmas! Men are ridiculous, genuinely if I had a pound for every time I still have to have the “Yeah but why did they have to remake Ghostbusters with girls?” conversation. I had it the other day at new work with a new colleague, he asked me who the audience for it was supposed to be. I get so tired sometimes… x
