I try try try TRY not to be negative, but this series of ‘Doctor Who’ is starting to bore me. I’m not laying the blame anywhere – maybe it’s just not my cup of tea at the moment, but is it just me?
On another note, what IS the most acceptable way to hold a feature script together in the UK? I’m aware of some of the conventions, including the US one where you punch 3 but only brad 2, and then use smart little washers to prevent desk-scrapeage, but what’s the standard here? Though there’s zillions of pronouncements about the standard font, spacing and formatting, there’s a sort of vagueness about the punching and presenting.
Of course it goes without saying that I’ll make sure my scripts have floral card covers with my birth-sign on them, a florid font in pink, and an accompanying cd with ‘Mood songs’ in a special little sleeve beside it, but should I include a photograph of me in a prom dress, and a sample of the cloth that the lead character’s hat is to be made of?
