  1. Jenna Coleman is one of my favourite Dr. Who's companion.

  2. I'd be a pissed off spirit too if I found out my life was cut short at the hands of someone else.

    They both sound interesting today.

  3. These both sound interesting, but the second sounds like it really makes you think. I wonder what happens after she solves the murder and do your feelings really matter in death? You can't do anything about them.
