New series, new Doctor, now #tweetnotes threads!

MUTE FOR SPOILERS as we delve into The Woman Who Fell To Earth. #DoctorWho
DW-TWWFTE: With so many new characters to introduce there’s neat trick here: we start with two different Who episodes - the ‘odd artefact’ mystery and the ‘dangerous creature’ seige. #tweetnotes
DW-TWWFTE: While Ryan and Yaz get sucked into one story and work to make sense of it, Graham and Grace are saved by the Doctor in the other.

And then it all links up. That’s canny. It’s a lot of what Who does, intercut and with all the new leads quickly bedded in. #tweetnotes

Time for some #tweetnotes on Marvel’s Black Panther. Mute for SPOILERS.

In short: Clicks into place by being the story of how a whole nation/culture can be a superhero.
BP: I want to be up-front about this - it took me two goes to fall in love with this movie.

The first time it was ‘a capable Marvel flick with an especially good cast and design, hampered mostly by lousy greenscreen’.

The second time, I cheered and cried.
BP: Black Panther is a movie about Wakanda having the potential to be a global superhero. And finally waking to that (oh yes) that power and responsibility. #tweetnotes

Time, at last, for Tweetnotes on Star Wars: #TheLastJedi. SPOILERS

In short: Wonderful, deliberate storytelling done with careful measures of drama, thrills and wit. So why all the fuss?

SW-TLJ: Oh boy is it exciting watching Johnson unpick the things that happen just cos genre expects it.
SW-TLJ: Rey is living through your expectations. Haunted by them. She’s struck the same way by the reveal.

Rey was always the girl who had seen Star Wars as kid. Pilot dolls and heroic myths. Of course she thought she was a secret Skywalker. Didn’t we all?
