Well my Twitter week ended in a very sad way last night as I came home to the news that Doctor Who
's Sarah Jane, and star of the spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures
Elisabeth Sladen, had died of cancer aged 63; sudden news as she'd kept her illness from the public. I'm not even going to link to the CBBC website tribute page where kids as young as 5 have been leaving messages, as it's just too damn heartbreaking. RIP Lis Sladen.
Elsewhere in Twitterland, up until Sunday I was on another "no carbs" week and they leave me pretty grumpy so there may have been a few more ranty tweets than usual...
I almost enjoy being spammed by "World Wide Web Owner." If you're going to lie about who you are, think big!

Really though, a Matthew Graham two-parter? Did we learn *nothing* from "Fear Her"? #doctorwho

No matter how much I wash my hands they still smell of the salmon I had for tea. I assume this is what being straight's like.

Is that Olly MURS singing about having "nice sex?" True, I imagine on his best sex day ever, "quite nice" is the best he could manage.

.@Poptastic either way, "nice sex" sounds like it should be followed by crumble.

Dear woman looking confused & angry that your phone has no signal: YOU'RE ON THE TUBE!

@merseytart she got on at Canary Wharf so I'm assuming the anger was "what, no signal even for me? BUT I'M IMPORTANT!"

Well done Clybourne Park winning the Pulitzer prize - if you've been fool enough not to see it yet, it's still got a couple of weeks left.

Judging a book by its cover, I take it Martin Amis is now being ghostwritten by Jackie Collins.

No way, so sad to come home and find out Elisabeth Sladen's died :(

The title of the final SJA episode (Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith) takes on a rather different meaning now. Presumably they knew it was likely :(
