Doctor Who vs Merlin

Well this is a first, me updating my blog not three days after my last post!

Anyone who’s Saturday nights consist of sitting in front of BBC one with a mug of coffee and a plate of toast, will have noticed that recently two big BBC rivalries have been broadcast in quick succession.

That’s right I am talking about Doctor Who and Merlin. For years the young and the old have argued about which of these now classic dramas is the best, and today I am going to be answering that question.

Let us start with Doctor Who. Doctor Who used to be one of my favourite shows. Every Saturday I would sit down, eager for another episode of David Tennant charging about battling monsters. Those were the days.

In 2010 not only David Tennant but also head writer Russell T Davies and Executive Producer Julie Gardner would be leaving the show. I was upset but still willing to stick by the new doctor; played by an unheard of actor Matt Smith as well as Steven Moffat who had written for Doctor Who before.

However when the show returned it was filled with weak storylines, week plots, week acting and weak storylines. I hated both the 5th and 6th series and Matt Smith and the team have only ever tried to pull themselves together for the 7th series.

I watched Merlin ever since it started in 2008. If anything Merlin was a completely opposite case to Doctor Who, starting worse and then progressively getting better.

Merlin follows a young boy, struggling to protect his secret of magic, in a kingdom where he would be killed if it be discovered. During this he befriends the legendary Prince Arthur, serving girl Gwen and Court Physician Gaius.

In a way, every episode was mainly the same but you can’t help loving Merlin.  The progressive storylines, the changing characters, the great dragon who is in it less and less.

So I think you will see by now that Merlin has definitely overthrown Doctor Who. Sherlock however is a different matter…

Facebook vs Twitter

Which is better,  Facebook or Twitter?

It is a question that has filled the heads of millions since these two internet rivalries came into play. And now it is going to be answered once and for all, by me.

I have acounts on both of these site, both of which I use regularly, so it was extremly difficult for me to find an argument bettering one over the other.

So instead I will go throught them one at a time. Starting with Facebook.

Facebook is easy to understand and is set out in a simple way.

In getting it it took me only 1 weekend to work out how to everything. It is designed to perfection and the new ‘Timeline look’ lets you personalise your things and set them out how you want.

On Facebook you can post messages, pictures and talk to other people (as well as looking at all their photographs.

It is also really easy to see what other people are up to as they each have there own page which you can access.

I currently have 1029 followers on Twitter, because of my various blogs, but after two years of having it, I’m still not getting the hang of it.

Ok so you get to here whatever your favorite celebrity is up too but trying to keep track of all your followers at once is hard.

I think the layout if difficult to understand and the only reason so many people have got it is because there are so many celebrities on it.

I think you know what the answer is going to be.

Overall I think Facebook is the better of the two.

It is much easier to learn and you can keep in contact with your friends much more easily then you can on Twitter.

There will be those of you who disagree but to be honest, I don’t care.
