'You know, you sound a very educated man for a barbarian,' said Rincewind.
'Oh, dear me, I didn't start out a barbarian. I used to be a school teacher. That's why they call me Teach.'
'What did you teach?'
'Geography. And I was very interested in Auriental studies. But I decided to give it up and make a living by the sword.'
'After being a teacher all your life?'
'It did mean a change of perspective, yes.'
'But... well... surely... the privation, the terrible hazards, the daily risk of death...'
Mr Saveloy brightened up. 'Oh, you've been a teacher, have you?'

We have a trailer! And a look at the new sonic screwdriver! And some info from Chris! No premiere date yet, that's sad.

I don't think a spoiler warning applies here. It's Chibnall.

Doctor Who series 11 trailer

We have a teaser!

Okay, it doesn't say much. But what struck me is how it is not about saving the world or the Doctor herself. We see the Doctor with the future companions's eyes, and it's ceratainly more RTD's style than Moffat's. I never liked it when the focus was directly on the Doctor. We're clearly past the "last of the Time Lords" era, and we're past the "centre of the universe" era, and in the teaser new viewers will see that the Doctor is mysterious, can play with time and likes to laugh - that's a nice starting point.

I also like how warm the light and the colours are. It was a good thing in series 10 to get rid of those dark mood of series 8 and 9, and with a new logo I can only be happy the change's doing to last.

Football, football, football

Things I learned during the England - Croatia match:

1. Football matches are far more enjoyable when you don't feel constantly embarrassed and angry with your team because they're already at home.

2. Football isn't that boring when both teams seem to know what they are doing and you could actually see the footballers cooperating and carrying out some strategies.

3. England's coach's name is Gareth Southgate.

4. The cameramen don't pay enough attention to the coaches during the match.

5. I think footballers should consider wearing suits while playing football.



As if I wasn't in love with Great Britain already.

New Doctor Who composer

So, we finally know who's going to replace Murray Gold in Doctor Who. It's Segun Akinola. When I listen to some pieces of his music, I think he might do fantastic job on Doctor Who. Gold is a hard act to follow, I'm the first person to say it, but his time ended. I just hope we'll get some proper orchestral music, not synthesizers. Can't wait to hear the new intro! (The last one never grew on me.)

And it looks like Doctor Who sends its most important people to San Diego on Comic Con, so we should get some news about the new season soon!

Warsaw again!

I'm happy to tell you I recently made a small trip to Warsaw. I saw a Polish version of "Kinky Boots" and participated in Equality Parade, all on the same day. Here are some photos.

This entry is about a meeting with Grupa Filmowa Darwin, Polish filmmakers, in Kielce and is in Polish. Those people create short films and put them on youtube, and I admire how professional and creative they are. I'm proud to be a member of that small community that supports them.  I'm happy I had a chance to meet them yesterday and I had a really good time.

Doctor Who "Twice Upon a Time"

You know what? After you spent three years with a Doctor, you're ready to let him go. I can only wonder how I'd have experienced Ten's regeneration if I had known him for more than two weeks. Saying goodbye to Capaldi was surprisingly easy.

Spoilers under the cut.

I only just noticed that Martha echoes Florence from "Smith and Jones" when she says John Smith is "as human as they come".
