I love being part of the sci-fi community.
After the success of Angel the Buffy spin-off there was a rumour of Anthony Head who plays Rupert Giles (Buffy’s watcher) starring in a mystic detective series set in England. I was disappointed when it failed to materialise.
I remember in an interview he wanted the chance to play a villein in the unpredictable universe of the Buffy series.
I finally got my hands on the second season of Doctor Who. There he is. And what a magnificent villein he makes. That wonderful stillness, that steely eye. The way it played out there is every chance his character might go on to being a serious nemesis. Every now and then they get it right.
