TV musings  


I can't decide if Doctor Who's twist was genius or utter bobbins. Gut reaction was the former but I am drifting towards the latter.

Two of my new fave shows star Welshmen, and that can only be a good thing, especially since in one his character appears to be Welsh. But enough of the patriotism, as I do have a minor quibble with Forever and Constantine
Loving Forever but it feels just a teensy bit familiar - Henry's set up with Abe is rather reminiscent of Conor and Rachel. As I watch more and grow to like these characters that feeling is disappearing but it was quite jarring at first.

Which is my problem with Constantine - a tiny little niggle keeps stopping me from fully immersing in the world. I love this Constantine, he's much closer to the comic and he's Scouse but (due to Matt Ryan's Welshness) his accent drifts between Liverpool and Wales via Manchester. It's a stupid little thing and I probably only hear it because I am Welsh and I lived in Liverpool for a while so I know the sound of and speak with both those accents. I think I can reconcile it by my head canon being that he comes from the part of Merseyside closest to Wales, perhaps with Welsh family. Yeah, that will do I think.

I know I am nitpicking, and I otherwise adore what I've seen of both shows so far. I really just needed to vent, so thanks for reading my whining :)

I'm a 'proper' Scouser and I still get there accent wise via Wales (both north and south) Dublin, Manchester and west Yorkshire as you well know. Still haven't seen Forever, but I have recorded it!
