    As someone who has little patience for Dr Who save for the very occasional episode, would this new season be recommended so far?

    Pretty much. Unless people are a danger to themselves or others then sectioning is avoided when at all possible. Even psychosis may be treated in the community if it's not likely to lead to harm.

    All of this. He was demonised by the press and his own party from the outset, and with no counter-narratives in his favour besides sites such as the Canary. Eventually the mantra that he is an...

    The thing with the SNP is that although they get flak for being a single-issue party, they're actually for the most part a surprisingly competent government. Within Scotland they're probably...

    The science fiction geek in me will always want to see something on screen, and The Expanse is the best thing going at the moment (out of the things I've seen/heard of). Sure, it doesn't come close...

    GitS was frustrating to me not so much because it failed to live up to the first two anime movies, but because it had flashes of brilliance which it failed to follow up on. It was thematically...
