A mainstream press Buffy retrospective

As recommended to me, and perfectly justifiedly so: Farewell Buffy, and fangs for the memories, an Independent article that’s a loving retrospective of Buffy over the last seven series.

Buffy’s finest episodes made the jaws of jaded viewers drop…Dennis Potter once dared to stage such narrative coups on British TV. No writer does now. These days, we’re encouraged to treat hammy drivel such as Cambridge Spies as the benchmark of our “quality” drama. Could that be a sepulchral laugh I hear through the Hellmouth?

It’s good to see a mainstream guy who gets it, I think.

Only three episodes to go now, I think.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
