    King of Pain

    Dentistry Update: took a large swig of cold water, forgetting my tooth because I took painkillers and a lot of the pain had calmed down… having just peeled myself off the ceiling, back to drinking from one side of my mouth. — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 🌲 Festive Epithet 🗿 (@MoveablePress) December 2, 2019 Yesterday’s […]

  • The Living Daylights

    The Living Daylights

    So, it is (reasonably) confirmed now. At least in Bond 25, 007 is a black woman. — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 📝 Writer/Content Creator 🗿 (@MoveablePress) July 15, 2019 Thing #1: Can I sue Phoebe Wallet-Bridge for stealing my fanfic idea? Probably not. This was and always will be the best way to get around the biggest […]

  • Goodbye


    A female James Bond? Never, confirms executive producer — 🌊 Sarah 📝 Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) October 7, 2018 It took a lot of thought (plus a half finished follow up to my fanfic series that would have involved the last three 007’s plus my AU) but I’m done. Bond and I are no […]

  • Another Way to Die

    Another Way to Die

    Danny Boyle's exit from James Bond throws franchise into chaos — The Guardian (@guardian) August 22, 2018 Yes I KNOW I’m supposed to be writing poetry, and as it happens I have been, quite well all told. However, this happened Tuesday night and ever since my brain’s been looking for a release, because I […]

  • All Time High

    All Time High

    Since the #MeToo Movement emerged in Hollywood (and beyond) the knives have been out for Ian Fleming’s secret agent. It is no surprise, on reflection: if you wanted a genre that had male dominance stamped all over it, here it is. Despite various attempts to shift emphasis (and a distinct move away completely from women […]

  • You Know My Name

    You Know My Name

    Took a day off all forms of writing yesterday, because occasionally even I like to not worry about output. Then I went with Mr Alt to the Royal Albert Hall and watched Casino Royale scored by a full orchestra (plus David Arnold on guitar) and was in the same place (briefly) as Michael G Wilson and Barbara […]

  • Hope for the Future

    Hope for the Future

    I didn’t get my mentorship. It wasn’t a surprise. In good news, they sent the e-mail nice and early, so I didn’t have to stress about it all day. Not that I would have, of course, because I already know how this is going to pan out. What mattered more this morning was bettering my […]

  • Coming Around Again

    Coming Around Again

    This is the blog post about Bond 25 that needs to be made, as the announcement popped up yesterday from Eon’s @007 Twitter feed confirming something is in pre-production. Booking a weekend in November 2019 might seem a bit previous, but considering what we’ve seen coming out of Comic Con over the last weekend, it […]

  • Who Are You?

    Who Are You?

    You remember that post from the end of June when I said there was no chance of seeing a female Doctor Who in my lifetime? Meet the Thirteenth Doctor #DoctorWho #Doctor13 — Doctor Who Official (@bbcdoctorwho) July 16, 2017 I don’t think I’ve ever been happier about being wrong in my life. Waking up […]

  • This Woman’s Work

    This Woman’s Work

    Last weekend, I watched the last episode of the current season of Dr Who. I didn’t mean to, it just happened, and even though the whole season’s only been absorbed via synopsis, I stayed to the end and was rather glad that happened. The last 45 seconds was so far out of left field as […]
