And full declaration probably tomorrow, but the latest chapter of Hobosn & Choi is up now!
This should be it, I think.
Not long left then. Good job, as loads more geek-TV starts up this weekend.
This actually started as a nice Easter story about rebirth and stuff, although it seems to have changed since then. Never mind, at least it still has some mild science-fiction.
And if you want to be my 100th vote on Hobson & Choi, there's still time to head over there and go nuts. Only four to go!
And for trivia fans, this is the 900th post on this site! Well done me!
Back after the birthday break, and you'd really never know I'd been away. Well, except that I'm maybe reviewing Broadchurch a few hours later than usual, sorry about that.
It may be my birthday, but the review schedule waits for no man. As before, birthday Hobson & Choi votes also welcome.
This week, our heroes venture into the dark world of professional social media and meet a range of new suspects. Hobson finds it all as annoying as you'd expect.
As ever, if you fancy logging in to vote for the new chapter (or indeed all six available chapters) on the Jukepop site, greatly appreciated. It's my birthday today, and six extra votes would be an ideal cheap substitute for a present or card. (Hint hint.)
My birthday party was last night, there are still a few nibbles leftover...

Birthday weekend begins here! Although the difference for blog readers may not be immediately obvious, but the latest Hobson & Choi chapter will be going up shortly.
Another week, another story, and this week, it's time for some mild unpleasantness as I veer into the crime genre. I'll say no more.
As ever, you can see more Friday flash fiction on Friday Flash Dot Org, and if you want to vote for some Hobson & Choi chapters on Jukepop, I wouldn't personally complain much either. Cheers for reading, all.
Longer feature than usual, spent a fair while working out the order, so do give it a look and comment if you strongly agree/violently disagree.
Having read the other two books after watching their screen equivalents, I thought I’d try this one the other way round. So, how was the experience? Has it affected my expectations of the upcoming series?
SPOILER WARNING: If you’re following the TV show, haven’t read the books and want to remain totally unspoiled for events beyond season two, best not read this.
We're now in a bit of a TV gap before the massive returns of Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, but don't worry, Broadchurch is still with us...
Because, y'know, you can vote once for each chapter, so if new people go on there now, swish through the entire story and vote for all five parts, I'd take quite a jump up in the rankings. Just a brief glimmer of my hopes and dreams there.
And in the meantime, I already have a draft for chapter six, so the story shall continue regardless. Votes always welcome, though, as are any comments and/or feedback you might have, either here, on the serial page at Jukepop or to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would normally have rolled this into one link-post with that last Walking Dead review, but I only decided to do it on a whim. Sorry for RSS spam.
Yeah, a lot of zombies on TV this weekend.
And if you want to vote for Hobson & Choi today, that would take me over 60 before the end of the week. Wow.
Time for some horror creatures this week! Maybe because Being Human has just finished, maybe I just felt like it.
As ever, see more Friday stories on the Friday Flash site.
Season 3 starts Easter weekend, so imagine you'll hear a bit more about that show in the coming weeks.
But why can’t I work at home anymore? Where did it all go wrong? Isn't my home-made photo adorable? And how long can one man sit in a coffee shop before the staff punch him?
Another week in the rural ITV Killing fields with David Tennant...
As promised in the earlier post, last night's series finale means a lot of Being Human on the TV blogging...
Secondly, and at more length...
This week, Choi has gone to fetch a sandwich, so time to get into Hobson's head, and it's dark in there. Not to mention, the mystery advances, as Hobson does some crime scene investigation. Not like on CSI though, he'd hate that.
So, that's new Hobson & Choi chapter, up now on Jukepop Serials. You can now log into the Jukepop site with Facebook, rather than having to create an account, and if you're able to do so and vote for a few of my chapters, that'd be pretty awesome. I'm doing quite well for a new serial, but we still need to take that big leap to Massive Smash Hit.
Coming up shortly, all the Being Human finale blogging you could ever want.
A lot of the undead in my latest TV blogs...
No, this isn't about the band Placebo - although, true story, their lead singer Brian Molko received a doctorate from Goldsmiths the same year as I got my MA. Sadly, I wasn't at his graduation.
Anyway, new Friday story below. If you wanna vote for Hobson & Choi on Jukepop today, you can now sign in with Facebook instead of needing to actually register there. True story.
On with the story. More available on the FridayFlash website if you so desire.
And yes, I'll look very behind the times to any US readers here, since they're up to season five, but yes, seriously. We're only getting it now.
Yes, I watched some ITV drama. I did it because I'm a real critic and I care.
I’d already worried for a while about how much to plug my various writing endeavours on various social networks. Mostly Twitter, but others too. Recently, though, I started doing Hobson& Choi on Jukepop, and I’m telling you, I love doing it. Wanted to do something serialised ever since my comic-loving yoof.
But Jukepop operates on a competitive vote-up system, so to succeed, I need people to go vote for me. And I already felt I was pestering people to read my work quite a lot, so... is this too much? How much is too much? Is this much of a muchness? Let’s blog about it.
See our detective heroes get out there and attempt some detecting! How close will Choi get to the blood and guts? How close will Hobson get to... the edge? Find out here!
As ever, you'll need an account on Jukepop to read chapter two and onwards. And once you have said account, if you're able to click the "+Vote Chapter" buttons on each one, it would help my world domination cause no end. Ta.
Oh yes. Not long to go now, and I am sad. Also, for avid fans, the third chapter of Hobson & Choi is already up on Jukepop, I just haven't had time to do a dedicated post yet.
It's a shame, this show was going really well for a while. Ah well. Yesterday's Friday story was decent if you fancy it.
Morning. Another week, another story, not much preamble here. If you have ten minutes to read and/or vote for Hobson & Choi, you win my love. Or, if you're not here for the writing really, I also did a video of some glasses being stacked in Pizza Express.
Anyway, on with this week's story. As ever, plenty of other good flash work available on the FridayFlash site.
