Good Omens SXSW Experience

The delightful chaos wrought by Amazon Studios’ new Good Omens TV series at SXSW cannot be denied or ignored, literally. With such an enormously immersive marketing strategy, you’d expect it was being positioned as the next Game of Thrones or Westworld, both of which saw HBO employ similar tactics in years past.

Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) became sick but was meant to die. Master Raymond (Dominique Pinon) gave her a stone that can detect poison. The Frasers bring their cat and mouse game home, as they plan a dinner party to make political moves. On the way home, Claire, Murtagh, and Mary (Balfe, Duncan Lacroix, and Rosie Day) are attacked, and poor Mary is raped. Claire is saved when they scream, “La Dame Blanche.” They hide Mary away with Alex (Laurence Dobiesz) taking care of her, and go to the party pretending nothing is amiss. Claire gets seated next to the Comte St. Germain (Stanley Weber) who mentions the stone. Louise (Claire Sermonne) announces her pregnancy in front of the prince. Mary flips out, resulting in a giant brawl at the party where everyone is arrested.

He hired a boy, Fergus (Romann Berrux), to steal correspondence so he could copy it and have the boy put it back. Claire realized that Frank (Tobias Menzies) was a descendent of Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) and Black Jack. Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) told her she had to tell Jamie that Randall was still alive.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

After completing his weighty, serious, and sobering journey separating from his companion, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) finds himself crossing paths with his wife, River Song (Alex Kingston), taking him on a ridiculous rollicking adventure.

During TARDISblend 98, we round out 2015 with a look at the Doctor Who Christmas Special, comparing it to previous efforts from Steven Moffat, and take a very short, quick glance at what’s coming next year.
