Good news


While Kathy and I may have been only fans of her short lived Bionic Woman reboot, Flea-readers may nevertheless rejoice at the news Michelle Ryan is to be the next Who Companion. For the Easter special, at least.

Michelle Ryan looks set to become the next Doctor Who companion after landing a plum role in the show's Easter special. The former EastEnders actress will appear in Planet of the Dead, which will be broadcast on BBC1 in April. She will play Lady Christina de Souza, who accompanies David Tennant's Doctor on a dangerous bus trip.

She was excellent in Jekyll too, btw. And by excellent, I mean hot as hell.*

* That last link is my first to Amazon.com. I hope not to annoy people with this sort of thing. I am giving some thought as to how best to incorporate my product recommendations into posts. The priority is to avoid sneaky links that look like they lead to something informative or editorial but are actually a form of advertising. That sort of thing irritates me and I expect annoys other people as well.

If I may make a suggestion on the Amazon links, you could add this line to your styles-site.css file:

a.amazon { text-decoration:none; border-bottom: 1px dashed #003366;}

and then remember to make your Amazon links of the form:

<a class="amazon" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/blahblahblah....

This will turn the line underneath those links into an unobtrusive dashed line, and I believe readers will quickly pick up on the convention.

Thanks for this; I think it is an excellent idea. My brain is a bit fried this morning but I shall study your html wizardry carefully...
