I recognise that’s how business would work in a situation with a guild or confederation. I just don’t see bounty hunters being organised that way—that requires bureaucracy which, in one word, is antithetical the fantasy appeal of bounty hunters. Spike Spiegel, Django—none of these people had to answer to a head office… Read more
I haven’t, thanks for the tip, I’ll check it out later to-night.
I agree, the writers are the primary problem, and problem interference from the BBC, which apparently has been a problem since at least Matt Smith’s third season. I don’t think Whittaker’s a bad actress but she needs material.

I have read that, yes, though it was years ago and I don’t remember it very well. I think I’ve re-read Dracula three times since I last read “Dracula’s Guest”.
I definitely got a bit of a True Detective vibe from it, too. And scotch always helps in my experience.
I certainly would agree that it’s not useful to encourage boys to always repress their tears (though I think it can be useful to repress emotions in some cases, particularly emergencies).
