I must have caught something from T. at work, because I've been feeling rather crappy for the last few days, but as usual (and unlike T.) not sick enough to actually justify staying at home. Slept a lot, with lots of weird dreams. Also managed to put up a mirror, a shelf and hooks for the kitchen towels, all of which have been lying around for, oh, a year.



So I'm rewatching TW (for the nth time...), and I realise this is a bit ironic after an insane amount of Jack/Ianto meta ever since S1, but deliberately watching the show without any kind of ship-related focus is actually a huge improvement. Strangely enough even when it comes to Jack/Ianto. Without expectations or always being busy making mental notes what is right, what is wrong, or could be better, or, or, or. Because in the end TW might be about relationships a bit more than it is about aliens, but they're simply not all that important either, or if they are it's rather the idea of relationships in the abstract, the theme of relationships vs. isolation, more than the actual relationships on screen.


One thing I noticed, though. The stopwatch, which seemed a bit random at the time. It's really not. Time. Measured Time. Time running out; right from the start. Ianto with his stopwatch, and Jack with all the life that Suzie wants and he wouldn't wish on her. IMO it's no coincidence either that Small Worlds with the tragedy of Jack and Estelle comes right after the episode that established, even if it was in a rather complicated, fucked up way, the beginnings of that relationship.
